Demon Shapeshifter / Demoness Shapeshifter

(image) (image)

This unit is from the Era of Chaos. Its coding and art were done by the various people who created the Era of Chaos.

The exceedingly rare Shapeshifters, as their name implies, have the ability to take on the shape of other creatures, and even mimic their powers to a limited extent. On their own, they are easily mistaken for elves or humans. Although they rarely use their powers when not called for, they have developed a peculiar custom of hiding behind personalized, often elaborate masks.

Once known for their remarkably peaceful nature, it was this trait that led to their near-extinction in Inferno following Uria’s rise to power. More powerful and bellicose demon lords have slaughtered or enslaved their kind over time, occasionally using them as specialized assassins. Their androgynous appearance, flexible attributes, and unusual resistance to physical damage have allowed them to survive by blending with other lifeforms—rumored to even include Irdyan creatures, civilized or otherwise—at the cost of bloodline purity and their continuance as a species.

Before their downfall, they had rarely been governed by any demon lords of their own, Zhangor being one of the last successful tyrants to take over. It is currently unclear whether the shapeshifters seen fighting in Irdya after the destruction of the Wesmere hive follow a specific demon lord.

Special Notes: If there is an enemy of the target on the opposite side of the target while attacking it, this unit may backstab, inflicting double damage by creeping around behind that enemy. This unit has magical attacks, which always have a high chance of hitting an opponent. This unit will instantly regenerate half of the damage deal on it with non-arcane attacks, unless it would otherwise kill it. This unit’s skill at skirmishing allows it to ignore enemies’ zones of control and thus move unhindered around them. This unit’s arcane attack deals tremendous damage to magical creatures, and even some to mundane creatures.
