Changeling

Changeling

Changelings are a humanoid race who are distantly descended from doppelgangers and share their shapeshifting qualities. Their shapeshifting has led to them being used as spies and assassins which has in turn led to them being mistrusted amongst the people of Esperia. Changelings can look like anyone at any given time though they do have a true form. Their natural look can be scary to some due to their lack of detail and distinctive features. Their skin tone is always pale, the darkest tone some have is a light grey. They have large white eyes but have no pupils and are circled by thick black rings. Their noses are small and subtle with no detail. The changeling’s body structures are slender, even more so than elves and border on being frail. Their hair colour is most commonly a light shade of silver followed by platinum and blonde.

Changelings are commonly harmless, passive people and are uninterested in politics and social affairs. Due to their capricious ways of life many people have come to distrust the changelings which has led to them becoming social recluses or more commonly has pushed them to create fake identities to escape persecution.

Having no culture of their own the changeling slip into other’s societies and blend in. Rather than creating their own art and achievements the Changeling are happy with claiming other societies’ as their own. This nomadic lifestyle has led the changeling to become exceptionally adaptable people. Changeling will not simply shapeshift into a new person but rather create a new whole one. Most changeling will set up a handful of personas so if one is compromised they can disappear and switch to one of their others. Their personas that they create are incredibly realistic and have their own personality traits, backgrounds and network of friends. The changeling can be evasive and will often try to avoid confrontation or anything that will draw attention to themselves.
