Dyson wolf (103)

Dyson as wolf

A Shapeshifter is a Fae genus with the ability to change their appearance and body structure. This transformation typically entails changing into a particular non-humanoid species, though it can also apply to assuming the visage of different persons (including the opposite sex).

Character arc

Shapeshifters are able to control their transmutations. There exist different kinds of Shapeshifters, of both Light Fae and Dark Fae clans.

A Humanoid shapeshifter can shift into different human types. Bo met a shapeshifter named Teague that suffered an identity crisis from all the times that he had shifted into the forms of many different people (Barometz. Trick. Pressure).

Other species of shapeshifters appear to be limited to one shift-form of another species. For example, Dyson always shifts into a grey wolf.

Types of Shapeshifter species


Shapeshifting abilities, founded in mythology and folklore (and still prevalent in modern fantasy fiction), is the ability of an entity being able to physically transform into another being or form. This is usually achieved through an inherent faculty of a mythological creature, divine intervention, or the use of magic spells or talismans. The most common form of shape-shifting myths is that of therianthropy, which is the transformation of a human being into an animal (and, conversely, of an animal into human form). Legends allow for transformations into plants and objects, and the assumption of another human countenance (e.g. fair to ugly).[1]
