== Shapeshifter Bio ==
=== Name ===
=== Player ===
=== Age ===
Unclear. At least a hundred and ten years old. Werebears don't tend to keep a track of these things. It just isn't that important to them.
=== Animal ===
A massive shaggy brown Kodiak bear. A more detailed description is given below.
=== Claimed By===
Danny. I'm not sure he'd agree to the whole concept of being claimed or owned though. If anything he sees it as the other way around!
=== Orientation ===
=== Hair ===
Light, straight and blonde. It falls past his shoulders, but is often tied back with a scrap of ribbon. His beard is a few shades darker and untrimmed.
=== Eyes ===
Blue. The colour of old sea ice and just as cold and hard at times. Mostly they're soft and full of laughter though.
=== Height ===
Six foot and eight inches tall.
=== Appearance ===
Bjorn has two forms. The first is that of a tall, well built blonde haired man with faded tattoos that suggest he has at one time or another been to many corners of the world. He tends to dress in linen and cotton, is very often barefoot and seldom seems to notice the cold. He wears no jewellery other than a small bronze mjolnir hammer on a simple leather thong around his neck.
His other form is that of an enormous brown Kodiak bear. He does not take an in between form. He weighs in around 1,340 kilograms or 2955 pounds and stands at about six feet three inches at the shoulder. Should he chose to rear up he would easily exceed thirteen feet in height. In his bear form his eyesight is as good as ever, but his sense of smell is sharper than a hound's. In bear form the bronze hammer can be seen still at his throat, glinting amidst his long, shaggy brown fur.
=== Personality ===
His personality reflects his dual nature. He's calm and quiet. He's welcoming to those he knows, but slower to accept and trust strangers. Those who he comes to think of as friends he would do just about anything for. His temper is slow to start, but fierce once awakened. He's perfectly happy on his own or with company. He tends to be a bit vague on social niceties. Like not wandering around naked after changing his form for instance. This has more to to with the fact that he's comfortable with what he is and who he is than not actually knowing the rules. He either takes an interest in people or none at all. There is seldom an in between with him. People can be interesting for a variety of reasons though. His animal form mirrors his human personality closely although he is then even less interested in most people. He speaks the truth always. He has no time for deceipt or deception. Whilst he believes in right and wrong, his attitude to what he sees as the unnecessary complexities of human laws is more ambivalent. Whilst he is capable of killing he generally will only do so as a last resort or in self defence. He has killed before. Extended periods of cold weather tend to make him sleepy and lethargic. Hot weather makes him want to swim and lie about in the shade.

== History ==
Bjorn was born many years ago. He's lost track of exactly when. Certainly it was before motorcars roamed the roads. Knowing exactly how old he is doesn't matter to him. It's a human trait he has no need of. He was born in a village deep in the heart of a forest that has since slipped off the map. His mother and father were both changers and he has been slipping between forms since he was old enough to crawl. He has alway preferred to be in the wilds than in a city. By nature he strongly believes in right and wrong and in exploration and learning through discovery. It is this Creed that has driven his wanderings around the world, never settling in one place for too long. He has been known by many names and called many places home.
Bjorn does have a tragic secret that haunts him and goes someway to explaining his tendency to 'adopt' witches whom he guards with a fierce and thoroughly territorial loyalty and attempts to guide through the twists and turns of life. Currently whether she likes it or not he has chosen the young witch known to her friends as Danny.
