Shifters resemble humans but with more animal like features. Their bodies are physically fit and lithe, they tend to move around in an animal like manner, crouching, springing and leaping. Like cats they have wide flat noses with large eyes, pointed ears and claw-like nails on both their toes and fingers. Their hair is thick and worn long and some have long sideburns to match. Shifters commonly have chaotic personalities and experience extremes in their emotions. They are often temperamental and are liable to change moods in swift and dramatic fashion. Shifters find it difficult to control their emotions, especially in stressful situations. Some have learnt to control their emotions however, it is obvious to others that they're finding it difficult to do so.
