Shapeshifting is the ability to change into the shape of an animal, or that of a human being. This means that animals can easily turn into another type alongside humans, and it can happen in various ways. Some think the ability for someone to shapeshift comes as a natural gift from birth, while others see it as a skill that’s learnt through magic. There are different types of shapeshifters that exists, and they all differ in appearance, shape, with their ability to do things.
Skin walkers are animals that can transform into a dog form without stress, or waiting for a full moon. The skin walkers are under the alpha, and they follow their leader first. The shapeshifters have a strong sense of smell even in their human form or canine form. Therefore, if anything seems odd, they’re capable of observing it before any other being. These shapeshifters feed on the heart of their prey, so when their victims are captured, they’ll go for the heart. Anything silver renders them powerless, so they’re extra cautious to avoid eating a set-up silver meal. It’s important to be aware that if they’re stabbed in the heart with a silver knife, it kills them.
The Kumiho is another type that enjoys human company, but ends up hurting them because of their nature. Their relationship with humans are just to take life out of them, and probably eat their flesh together with any power possessed. It’s a Japanese evil creature that’s capable of taking people’s memories, knowledge, and even assuming their human form. It utilizes a marble in its mouth to steal people’s wisdom through a kiss. Their target is focused on attractive women because they’d want to assume that shape for other purposes.
Aswang are day walkers that are not allergic to sunlight, unlike vampires, but they’re weak during the day as their supernatural strength doesn’t surface. These beings are mainly females that walk with their feet backwards, with the ability to use different voices as a disguise. Aswangers can transform into the replica of any object or human being, making a second out of anything they wish. A shocking aspect of them is their ability to get married, and change their partner to their kind immediately. Something which they can’t do is reproduce because of their nature. It’s common for them to hunt at night, as these shapeshifters don’t like sharing food with others.
