A.K.A. Beetle Buttons

Chapter 4
This chapter will look closely at the Transfiguration spell of Mutobuprestis, also known informally as Beetle Buttons.

The word is derived from Latin, muto meaning to "change, alter, or transform", and buprestis meaning "beetle". It is the incantation used in Beetle Buttons, and is pronounced mute-o-boo-press-tis.

Looking back at our categories in Chapter 1, this spell falls under the Transformation Transfiguration branch. It is used to transform beetles into buttons. Beetle Buttons are buttons that were once beetles, but have undergone Transfiguration to become buttons. Many famous lines of wizard clothing use Beetle Buttons because they are cheap to come by.

The spell itself does not cast any light or noise, but strictly transforms beetles pointed at with the caster's wand into a button.

The level of this Transfiguration is somewhat basic.

t= Transformation of an beetle into a button
a= caster must be heavier than the beetle
v= intent must be at least medium-mild
w= any wand power
c= fair
Z= well-spoken, as clear as possible
