Capabilities

The user with this ability either is or can transform into an Basajaun (lit ("Lord of the Woods", plural: basajaunak, female; basandere), a huge, hairy hominid from the Basque and Aragonese mythology, and the first inhabitants of those lands found in the mountains and more remote forests. They build megaliths, protected flocks of livestock, and teached skills such as agriculture and ironworking to humans.

Despite their huge bulk and intimidating appearance, many stories of the Basajaun talk of a benevolent giant: a guardian of the woods and of flocks of sheep and a friend to the local shepherds. Their mere presence near the flocks of sheep would have been enough to frighten away the packs of wolves. They would warn the farmers with his cries when a storm was on its way, giving them time to bring the herds down to safety from their mountain pastures.

Basajaun were also teachers, having developed skills in milling, forging and crop cultivation they teached these skills to the local population. They were adept at making tools and showed the famers how to make mills axles and saws and melt metals.
