The Gears of Fate
The tribal and shamanistic shifters are a noble and proud species. Shifters have a decidedly feral appearance, usually manifesting in fringes of hair, fur, or feathers along the forearms, neck, cheekbones, shins, hands, and feet. They often have pronounced incisors and claws instead of nails. These features depend on the shifter’s natural habitat and progenitor creature.
Shifter tribes have Native American style clan names, indicative of some important event in the clans’ early history.
Shifter subspecies all have a specific, secret name for their people that is never shared with outsiders. To make up for this, there are usually slang terms for each subspecies, changing depending on the region.
