A portal is a magical gateway that can transport anyone to another place. A portal is always linked to one portal and no other, unless somehow changed with magic. Portals can allow people to travel vast distances, leading all the way across a nation and even possibly the world. Any object can be made into a portal through the portal-making spell. For instance, the Mahgo family house has a linen closet that acts as a portal, linked to a portal in a lightpost across the street from Alivan's Wizards and Witches Corner Store in Mount Dora, Florida. Whoever walks through a portal disappears through the enchanted object, as if phasing through it, and then instantly leaves through the portal it is linked in the same manner.
