Transmutation, also known as Teleportation, is the ability to disappear from one spot and reappear in another. It is one of the Seven Wonders that appear in Asylum, Coven, and Roanoke.


Transmutation is the ability to teleport from one destination to the other. It is rather difficult to learn, and can be dangerous as a person could end up teleporting into another object, which would kill them, such as Zoe Benson.

Myrtle Snow may have used it when she suddenly appeared to Zoe's mother and later when she disappeared from Zoe in the pilot episode. Madison also demonstrated it when she teleported away from a blind Cordelia in order to mock her. In a flashback from 1919, Millie, a witch, transmutated away to escape the Axeman.

As it is part of the Seven Wonders, both Anna Leigh Leighton and Fiona Goode must have been able to perform it, as it is needed to become the Supreme. Fiona was able to transmutate in front of Anna Leigh Leighton in order to kill her and Leslie, a witch, mentioned that she passed the Trial of Transmutation.

Marie Laveau displayed this power when Hank invaded her shop and tried to kill her. He aimed his weapon, fired it and Marie disappeared. She appeared a few feet further with blood on her hands where the bullet had scratched her.

At the Trial of Transmutation, Queenie, Madison and Zoe, after grieving for Misty Day, decided to lighten the mood by playing tag. It all went well until Zoe accidentally transmuted into the gates and was impaled on the spiked fence, which killed her. However she was later resurrected by Cordelia. Cordelia Foxx was able to transmutate across the room to demonstrate her ability in order to become Supreme.

In Asylum, The Demon possessing Sister Mary Eunice would sometimes appear out of nowhere, as displayed in its attempts to terrify Arthur Arden. As to whether or not this was due to transmutation is unknown. Scáthach magically disappeared whilst being chased by Shelby Mlller and later appeared in the night fog to threaten Cricket.
