Shape Shifters encompass a larger group of entities who span multiple species. Shape Shifters can of the original race of Shifters who were able to manipulate their DNA to transform themselves into other beings. While other Shape Shifters were of an original species who learned (through various means) how to shift their form into other beings; namely animals.
Most evolved species like humans, Elves, Giants, Vampires, Dwarves, Fae, etc have Shape Shifters within their species. The original bloodline of Shifters were thought to be less formed than humans with subtle, almost non-existent, facial and body features that easily lent to fast Shifting and transformation.
They are not to be confused with Were creatures who were bitten and turned; like Were-Wolves, Were-Bears, Were-Cats, etc. Shape Shifters are known in popular legends as Skin-Walkers or Roof Walkers; as two of countless examples throughout worldwide legends.
As spirit companions they are each unique. Like most sentient species they have varied personalities and interests. They are collectively a group that likes adventure, can be pranksters, and enjoy being social. There are those who are well-versed in various forms of witchcraft and magick, those who like attention & being pranksters, and those who used their abilities to their benefit; namely professional thieves or assassins.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Shape Shifter companion is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality there is a way to keep them under control if you feel they are becoming too energetic, too strong in manifestation or too "in your face". Wrap their vessel in a tight, binding string, they become subdued and submissive. Only use this technique if you feel the Huldra is becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: roof walker, shape shifter, shapeshifter, skin walker, skin-walker
