In order to acquire the animagus ability, a witch or wizard must go through years of rigorous training to learn how to morph into a specific animal. That animal is inherent to the witch or wizard’s personality and cannot be chosen. They can change at any time with or without a wand, though advanced spells can force a witch or wizard out of their animagus form. Clothing worn while transforming remains with the person after transforming back to their human form.

In order to acquire the legilimens ability, a witch or wizard must go through years of practice either on their own or with the help of a tutor. It is easier if the spell-caster/Legilimens is near to the target, especially when they are off-guard, relaxed or vulnerable; eye contact is essential. The Legilimen may also be adept at manipulating people to doing what they want in order to remain in eye contact at all time. This ability isn’t just about being able to get what you want from someone for evil purposes, it could be used for good intentions as well.
