Changelings wear many masks, concealing their true identities behind false faces. Asshapechangers, changelings can appear to be members of any humanoid race, playingthe part of a dwarf one day and a dragonborn the next. This propensity for disguiseleads people to distrust changelings, so most keep their true nature hidden. Althoughchangelings can adopt any persona, most rely on a few established guises, each with adeveloped history and a network of friends and acquaintances. These guises provide achangeling with backup identities should one persona become compromised. Achangeling who travels frequently might change identities from town to town, swappinggenders, appearances and voices to blend in within each new community. In true form, achangeling has a startling yet vague appearance. A changeling's skin is uniformly palewith white or light gray tones. Its oversized eyes are often sunken in dark rings, betweenwhich lies a subtle nose. Changelings are slender, bordering on frail. Their hair tends tohave light coloring with hints of blue, green, and even pink; pale silver is the mostcommon hair color, followed by platinum and blond. Aside from the hair on their heads,changelings have little or no hair. Changelings reach maturity at about fifteen years ofage and they live about as long as humans do.
Playing a Changeling
Lacking a culture or a civilization to call their own, changelings adopt other races'societies. They seek out communities that have values and interests that parallel theirown. Changelings prefer cities because they are ideal places to blend in with others or tovanish if necessary. Cities also contain people too interested in their own affairs to noticethe oddities of strangers. Changelings are inoffensive and peaceful by nature, and theyhave few concerns about political and social affairs. Their mercurial nature breedsdistrust and suspicion In other races. People are intent on seeing the worst inchangelings; they assume the race uses its shapechanging ability for malicious ends.Some changelings do use their talents for evil, but such individuals exist in no greaternumbers than among other races. In a way, changelings are parasitic in theirrelationships with other races. Rather than constructing grand civilizations and sweepingedifices devoted to their people, changelings are content to treat the works of otherraces as their own. Their willingness to identify with a variety of societal structures is vitalto maintaining their false identities. For most changelings, the arts, customs andpractices they uphold are more than tools to reinforce their identities. These aspects ofsociety and culture are a part of their beliefs and values, just as they are for othermembers of their adopted communities.
