shapeshifter by physical introspection, by building clay figures and seeing oneself in them. as follows: wolverine ratlike, blood-seeping, freaky, perhaps too cool, too sovereign. raccoon virus bearer. rabies. handed. perhaps too cute. rat critter, beneath-dweller, the most ratlike by virtue of being one. whatever that is. armadillo little armored one. doesn't look dangerous, a bit pathetic maybe. cat too noble. fox too playful. wolf the wolf is not a real creature magpie if it's broken-winged.... good temperament. but, too free.
