- Human to animal shapeshifting
- Usually predatory mammals
- Mythic beasts are known, but rare
Transformation magic is common among the clans of Quercus, but rare in other parts of Reyern. Using transformation magic a person can turn themselves into an animal.
Clanspeople who are willing to discuss their skill say that a shifter does not merely take on an animal shape, they are both animal and human. Even in human form a shifter has some of the characteristics of their animal nature. A bear shifter is likely to be large and gruff tempered, while a hawk shifter will be fine boned and tire easily.
