Also Called

  • Adaptive Appearance Manifestation
  • Appearance Alteration/Modification
  • Malleable Form/Skin
  • Malleability


Users can modify the physiological features of oneself, including face, body, skin, or size (to a limited degree) to disguise or look like another person. While removing/concealing a body-part, like a finger, eye, etc., is possible, the user can't actually add anything new to the body-shape. They can, however, shift the flesh to a remarkable degree, although the changed being will always be recognizable as a member of their species.




  • Constrained to limitations inset within their genetic code. (Ex. Humans can't turn green, purple, no extra limbs/organs, etc.).
  • May be limited modifying only self or others.
  • Change may be slow and/or painful.
  • May have a limited duration.
  • Extended time in transformation may cause pain.
