Teleportation is the power to move from one place to another instantaneously without occupying the space in between. In addition to teleporting oneself, users have the ability to teleport others as well.
Teleportation is assumed to be a basic power of many magical beings.
Those who have the ability to teleport are also able to teleport with other beings and objects which do not possess a teleportation power via physical contact, though this is said to sometimes deplete their magical energy. Some beings have the power to teleport others without touching them.
While most beings are capable of teleporting between dimensions, some users are unable to teleport between realities.
Modes (Forms) of Teleportation
There are several ways to teleport and specific beings have their own unique way of teleporting. The main difference between each variety of teleportation is the visual effect that accompanies each power.
|Electrokinetic Orbing||The ability to teleport through a burst of electricity. This is an elemental variation of Orbing.||Jada Shields|
|Fading||The power to teleport through a fade or flash of light.||Abiku Demons|
The Source of All Evil
|Flaming||The ability to teleport through flames.||Alastor|
|Orbing||The ability to teleport by collapsing into and emerging from an orb of white light.||Whitelighters|
|Portal Creation||The ability to create portals from one location to another, allowing for instantaneous travel.||Charity Callahan|
|Remote Teleportation||The ability to teleport other people or objects without necessarily being at the same place with them.||Devorah Silver|
|Smoking||The ability to teleport through a puff of smoke.||Viralis|
|Swirling||The ability to teleport through an inward folding energy swirl.||Fiona Callahan (temporarily; through Vortex Viribus)|
|Teleportation Potion||A potion that gives the user the ability to tie themselves to a being with the power to teleport, allowing the user to teleport after them.||Mel Vera|
- In the original series, when this power is used, it resulted in a visual effect that often tied the user to a specific magical species or alignment (for instance, Whitelighters used orbing, neutral beings used sparkling while flaming and shimmering were exclusively demonic powers, and fading was used by both bood and evil individuals and species). This was not just purely aesthetic, as certain places could only be accessed by specific kinds of teleportation, such as the Whitelighter's orbing power being the only way to enter the Heavens, a trait which can only be bypassed by beings of supreme power, like higher gods.
