Transform into another person
The Verfluchte Zwillingsschwester (fair-FLOOKH-tuh TSVIH-leengs-shveh-stur; Ger. "damned" + "twin sister") is a spell used by Hexenbiests to take away a Grimm's powers. It can only be performed by a Hexenbiest who has lost their powers and regained them through the Contaminatio Ritualis. Once the potion is complete, the Hexenbiest responsible places a Witch's hat over the top of the cauldron containing the potion and inhales the vapors of the potion through the top of the hat, allowing the Hexenbiest to turn into another person that they have gathered the DNA (ex: hair) from, usually the sexual partner of the Grimm. Then, to take the powers from the Grimm, the Hexenbiest in their newly disguised form must have sex with the Grimm. If the Grimm drinks the liquid residue inside the cauldron before they lose their powers, the spell will be neutralized. However, it will lose its potency over time.
When turning into a person of the opposite sex, the transformation caused by Verfluchte Zwillingsschwester is truly only in one's physique, though this can be quite painful. Eve did not experience any changes of a hormonal nature nor any difference in sexuality when she transformed into Sean Renard. ("The Believer")
Within a couple days of the spell being completed, the Grimm and the Hexenbiest will both randomly get strong headaches simultaneously, which allows them to see through the eyes of the other for a brief amount of time. ("Octopus Head")
Reversing the SpellEdit
To reverse the Verfluchte Zwillingsschwester effects, the Grimm who lost their powers must have sex with the person the Hexenbiest disguised themselves as to take the Grimm's powers. That person must inhale the potion with a Witch's hat to transform themselves into the appearance of the Hexenbiest that took away the Grimm's powers. It is noted that the person must only inhale three times; otherwise, it could result in a permanent change in appearance. ("Highway of Tears")
Reversal Side EffectsEdit
After a Grimm completes the process of getting their powers back, the person they had sex with to get their powers back may suffer stomach and head pains and eventually turn into a Hexenbiest. ("Chupacabra") This side effect is permanent and can not be cured; the only treatment that can help with this side effect is a Hexenbiest suppressant. ("Maréchaussée") ("Trial by Fire") ("Iron Hans") ("You Don't Know Jack")
Im Hexentopf soll es sieden.
Und Dir ein neues Ich beschieden.
Sumpfger Schlange Schwanz und Kopf.
Brat und koch im Zaubertopf.
Molchesaug und Unkenzehe,
Hundezung und Hirn der Krähe;
Zäher Saft des Bilsenkrauts
Eidechsenbein und Flaum vom Kauz.
Ein Opferhaar sollst du dann pflücken,
Dich so mit 'm Spiegelbild beglücken.
Den Topf dann mit dem Hut bedecken,
Um das Gebräu wohl auszuhecken.
Starken Zauber eingemischt,
Höllenbrei im Kessel zischt.
In a cauldron it should boil.
And give you a new self.
A swampy snake's tail and head,
fry and cook in the magic pot.
Newt eye and toe of a toad,
tongue of a dog and brain of a crow;
Sticky juice of henbane,
a lizards leg and downy feather of an owl.
Now pick a victims hair,
to a mirrored image it will make.
Cover the pot with your hat,
and breathe in the mixture from the vat.
Powerful magic mixed in,
hellish pulp sizzling in the pot.
