If you were to see me in the street, you would think I was just an average, good looking guy. I have dark brown, longish hair thats always in my eyes, and always mussed up. My eyes are a brilliant dark green, the sort of colour you usually see in forests leaves. I'm a lot stronger and faster than anyone I have met (except my best friend, but even then we're pretty close-and she's pretty special) I'm smart enough I guess, and I'm about 17 years old (how long I have been 17 is another matter..)
Thing is, as I know better than most, looks aren't everything. I dress in smart, darkish clothes, and always manage to look good (which is quite lucky) and I have a swirling tattoo down one arm, which is always on my skin somehow, no matter what I look like.
Y'see, I'm not entirely human. I was born as one, so I guess thats sorta right, but in truth, I'm a shapeshifter. As in, if it is animal, reptile, insect or bird, so long as I know what it looks like, I can become one.. Its fun to be honest. I'm stronger and faster than normal humans, like I said, but the downside is that once I hit 17 and started changing, I stuck there. I don't age. Which means that no matter how old I get, I'm always going to get ID when I go to clubs. Sigh.
Anyhow, I was wandering through a forest someplace up north, human form for a change (I had spent the last few weeks as a wolf and gotten bored) when I came across this massive house. Rather aptly, it was called The House
Everyone welcome. Cool. I need someplace to stay.
Being a shapeshifter, I also had ended up becoming a bounty hunter, meaning I had a couple of miffed people on my tail. I had only just stepped through the door when I heard a scream and something landed on me. Hard, knocking both of us to the floor. Someone was hugging me so tight I couldn't breathe. I had a feeling I knew who it was...
