Welcome to Octisafell!

Chameleon Shifter

The Chameleon Shifter was born from an experiment Luxaz made while trying to design the ultimate killing machine. The experiement failed because he tried o combine too many and too different species. What resulted was a creature whose genetic structure is unstable and fluxuates between species combinations. Now the creatures have been able to control the fluxuation and transform into any creature of its choosing. This makes it the ultimate hunter. It can emulate a plant and catch bugs and small creatures or take on the characteristics of larger creatures to bring down larger prey. It is a very versatile hunter. It can live on pant life, but prefers meat. If desperate, it will attach humans and other sentient species. They are dangerous and will wipe out a whole ecosystem in an area before moving on to a new hunting ground.
