- "Alli permutat anima kimota. Alli permutat anima kimota. Alli permutat anima kimota."
- ―Marcus Roscoe[src]
The Algurian Body-Switching Spell was an incantation which caused two human spirits to switch bodies, though the body of the victim would be consumed after a time, and the caster needed be ready to reverse it unless he wished to die when the collapse took place.
The victim would not be consumed if the person the spellcaster switched with was a vampire, but given that the spell involved switching two human souls, it is unlikely that the spell could be used in this manner on any vampire other than Angel (and later Spike) given their unique status as ensouled vampires rather than the conventional demon.
Amateur spellcaster Marcus Roscoe used this spell to switch bodies with young, athletic men in order to relive his youth. However, after he switched bodies with Angel, his actions were exposed and the orb was shattered by Angel Investigations, preventing him from using it again.
