Shapeshifting - A Shifter has the ability to change into an animal form at will. They gain whatever strength, speed, and other abilities that animal form may naturally have.
Accelerated Healing - A shifter heals faster than humans and animals do, taking about half the time to recover from an injury. Example: if a human would take 8 days to recover from a physical injury the shifter would recover from that same injury in only 4 days.
Partial Shapeshifting - A skill that takes a shapeshifter a lot of time and training to develop. They are able to partly shift into their animal form. This can include external and internal changes, like morphing the insides of their ears into their animal’s in order to enhance their hearing.
Magical Prowess - A shifter is able to naturally use magic and feel an affinity for the craft. They do not need to worship any God or Demon to use magic but if they do not use an outside source then they can easily exhaust themselves.
Clairvoyance - As supernatural creatures, Shifters can see and hear ghosts the same way Vampires, Werewolves, and other ghosts can.
Magical Exertion - If a shifter uses too much of their own magical essence for power than they risk overexerting themselves. This can cause nose bleeds, unconsciousness, and even death.
Mortality - Shifters are mortal creatures and can be killed with any standard method.
Imprinting - Though not always a bad thing, imprinting can cause a shifter to lose themselves. While the feelings of unconditional love and fondness are good highs, the lows are extreme and could be too much for a shifter to handle.
Binding - Witches are able to use magic to control a shifter to do whatever they wish. This does not make the shifter unaware of being controlled and while some may be able to fight it slightly, there is no way to resist the witch’s control.
STORY SO FAR
Jacob was born in Japan to his Japanese Shapeshifter mother and Australian human father. His father was often disappearing from his life, sometimes showing up for birthdays and such. He had a family of his own and apparently he didn’t want that part of the family to know about him yet. Jacob remained a mystery. Years passed, his mother got married to a strict Japanese man who wasn’t that nice to Jacob. (His mother had imprinted on him and married him because he offered protection, power, and money.) He was a witch for the Yakuza and dabbled in very dark magic. He intended to one day show Jacob how to do the dark arts. The stepfather did support Jacob in his music career path, often paying for new instruments and lessons. Spoiling the kid but he didn’t really love him like a father should. Jacob’s producer was a friend of his step dad’s so everything he did was being watched. It wasn’t altogether bad for him though. He ended up having a rather interesting life in the spotlight and he grew to love it. Soon he started going on tour to different areas of the world where his music became loved. He soon became famous. He picked the name "The Damned Prince" because of his past with his step father. He felt like he was damned for some of the dark things he was made to do. He soon started to take his step father as a rolemodel in his life with the dark arts. It wasn’t like anyone else in his family really cared about him other than his mom and his step father was the only father figure he had right now. Jacob ended up going on tour in Australia when his real father met up with him and told him about his half sister who lived in America. (He was never told her name.) He was curious to see who she was and what she did. Jacob ended up going to Crawford city on an intended tour to go look for her. He liked the city enough that he decided to stay and live in a nice penthouse so that he could go and look for her.
