Coming from a long line of shapeshifters, Veronica has married into money and has inherited large piece of land on which two large apartment buildings are built. They are located on the coast of Florida, not too far from West Palm Beach. Her husband had had little care for anything else than the rent so the apartments were in poor condition. Veronica renovated everything, cleaned up the terrace, and even turned the ground-level apartments into store space for rent, which are now occupied by a gym, a hairdresser/manicure/pedicure salon, a massage salon, etc.
When she began to rent the apartment, however, the people had to have a very special genetic marker; they had to be shapeshifter. She rented apartments to humans she knew to be aware of the shapeshifter's existence as well. What Veronica didn't think as she filled the apartments one by one with people was that the sheep would have to live next door to the wolf... It is a place where they are allowed to be themselves
- Genetically transmitted from either parents, they will shift into one of their animal
- A pair of shapeshifters can still have normal human children
- Humans may be transformed through a bite
- The animal influences the personality and mannerism of the character
- Some of the animal's enhanced senses may remain in human form
- Not subject to the moon phases, they can shapeshift whenever they want, but some emotions can trigger an involuntary shift
- Shifting in and out of human form take a lot of energy and may even be painful
- Shift is magical and complete. There's no hybrid humanoid form
- Shifting either rips through clothing or have it drop to the floor. Which means they're shifting back into a naked human.
- Shifting is magical, thus the size of the human doesn't influence the animal (a 250 pound man may shift into a mouse. It'd be a fat or very muscular mouse but not much bigger than a regular mouse.)
- Not immortal, but have very long lives. After they reach maturity (18yo) they grow older by 1 year for ever decade give or take.
- Any animal accepted.
- Can't talk in animal form, but has a clan/pack/family bond that allows telepathy within the same species.
- Normal humans allowed, provided that they are aware of the shapeshifter's existence, which is kept a secret.
