 In the Dresden Files universe, there are many kinds of shapeshifter, not all of them human in original nature. While many of these shapeshifters are limited (often to a single animal form like werewolves or weresharks), a rarer few don't have such restrictions on the forms they can take. They may still be limited - only able to disguise themselves as another person, or only able to take on the forms of true, natural animals - but some are limited only by their imagination, and their skill with their ability.

Some of these free-form shapeshifters are naturally born with the potential - a "minor talent" who's somewhat less minor than most - or have put in years of hard work learning how to do it, much like those who learn to take on a Wereform. Others are tied more directly with mythology; perhaps you've been infused with a drop from Ceridwen's cauldron, or you're a descendant of a trickster like Loki or Coyote.

Power Limitation

 If your Shapeshifter does not fall under the Scion/Changeling/Emissary of Power mantle as their primary mantle they are limited to taking only specific powers in their Human/Native form. Any other Creature Features or Physical Powers are only available for purchase on their alternate forms. Additionally, no power type outside of Shapeshifting, Creature Features, or Physical are available to your PC.
  • The powers available to take in Human form for Shapeshifters without extra mojo are:
  • Any applicable Shapeshifting Powers
  • Beast Caller
  • Beast Whisperer
  • Echoes of the Beast
  • Echoes of the Forest
  • Forest Caller
