We grow older and so do they.
Albeit The Wild ages along different timelines than we do.
I’ve often wondered about versipellics (shapeshifters). I’ve known a few and when they shift they don’t become an animal the same age as they themselves before the shift.
Makes me wonder why, when they shift back, they don’t return to human form the same age as the creature they’re shifting back from.
Or if they could shift to a younger…
version of themselves.
Could they shift into a version of themselves prior to learning how to shift?
i feel a story coming on…)
