Portal Creation (or Portaling) is the power to create portals from one location to another, allowing for instantaneous travel. It has been shown that these portals can connect two locations on Earth or be used to access alternate dimensions. In some instances, there have been tears in space between dimensions or realities. However, these are commonly referred to as "rifts" rather than as portals.
The most well-known wielders of this ability are the Callahan sisters, Charity and Fiona. Charity’s portals appear as circular holes in space, outlined with neon violet light. Fiona's portals appear as oval holes in space with a blue aura, outlined in green light and a more flame-like appearance than her sister’s.
When connecting two points on Earth, each location can be seen from either side of the portal. However, when portaling to an alternate dimension the portal will only show an expanse of violet or teal energy punctuated by bright lights and neither the destination nor point of origin can be seen.
When Charity’s portals close, they dissipate into violet sparks before blinking out of existence, while Fiona’s dissipate into teal flames that vanish.
A user of this power can open and close a portal around themselves and others without the need for the person to step through, and can portal objects without entering the portal themselves.
The Command Center possesses a magical system that can allow magical beings, such as witches and Whitelighters, to create a portal from the Center and anywhere in the world, by navigating a map of the world to select the desired destination. This system also generates a marble made of black amber that, when thrown, reopens the portal back to the Command Center.
Portals generated by the Command Center appear as circular holes in space, similar to the Callahan sisters’, but are outlined differently, depending on which side they are viewed from. In the Command Center, they have a blue outline, while outside, they are outlined yellow. Regardless of location, the portals will only show warped, blurry images of their destination.
