(GGaD future species)
Names: Same as species name, but Ocean’s band of changelings are known as the Wanderers.
Lifespan:Their lifespan is dependent on what their dominant form is; if that species lives 50 years, so will the changeling.
Genders: The gender they are born will be consistent with both forms, but they are free to identify as whatever they choose.
Hierarchy: Since changelings are relatively rare, their groups are small enough to be direct democracies.
Typical Appearance: Depends on the form’s species.
Clothing: Depends on the form’s species. If the clothing of the two forms is very different, that changeling may transform privately to change outfits.
General Personalities: Very varied. One could be sweet and kind, and the other could be Ultimate Edgelord.exe.
Abilities: Most changelings have the subdued powers of their forms. Changelings themselves are born into a dominant form that will be closest to the actual species, but they are unable to change form until they find their special code word to let them transform (which could be a language they don’t know, or even one that no longer exists. That’s why the number of known changelings is so small; most die not knowing at all.
Weapons: Varied, but most use bladed weapons or dangerous tools not meant as weapons.
History: Changelings have always existed in Forengard, but most are exiled from their groups if they find out they are one; others are lucky enough to be accepted for who they are or encounter changeling settlements.
Other:Hermes. Anyone is free to make a changeling character or turn a pre-existing one into a changeling, but be aware changelings have only two appearances. Check your character form with me before submitting to GGaD mods; and I reserve the right to close off the creation/discovery of changelings if there are too many.
