Shifters, short for Shapeshifters, are able to change their appearance to any person living, dead, or fictional. Shifters are able to access a person's memories and thoughts through touch, making the an almost identical match to person they impersonate. Shifters have a weakness to silver, and one way to tell apart a Shifter is usually through video their eyes appear silver through video, but this can be avoiding if they were sunglasses.
