The True Companions have a scrappy-but-lovable talking Non-Human Sidekick, Robot Buddy, Cute Monster, or even an active imaginary friend. Due to the Applied Phlebotinum of the week, she is suddenly transformed into a human, and - heLLOOO NURSE!! All of a sudden, there are thousands of less than safe for work fan fictions and drawings about her, everywhere. Expect even the characters in the show to view her in a different light.

Alternately, the phlebotinum may simply show the audience what she would look like if she were human.

If the transformation is only temporary, it allows for a high-profile Cameo.

A Herald and his Companion ( an angel in the form of an idealized flawlessly perfect horse, a mare in this instance) meet up with a well-meaning but somewhat senile wizard, who proceeds to "restore" the Companion to its "true form": an angelically, superhumanly beautiful woman. This complicates not only their personal relationship but a delicate diplomatic mission as well.
