If you're reading this, it means you've met the... qualifications, let's say, to staying here – that, or you've been a little too nosy. To ensure the safety of our small but strong species, all shapeshifters have been gathered here to live out their lies in peace so as to not be bothered by government, military, and other humans who would abuse our abilities.
Shapeshifters are generally brought in at the age of fourteen, when they shift for the first time, and will continue their education until they turn eighteen. The majority of the city is underground to remain hidden from humans, but a large portion of land is accessible to everyone within the limits guarded by soldiers, for your own safety, of course.
In order to keep our secret safe, no one will be allowed to leave others than the highest ranks. But don't fret; we assure to provide everyone with safety and closure so long as we remain unexposed – at least, that's what every high-ranking member of the city seems to believe. But lately, talk of rebellion has spread among the shifters, and some have threatened to run away even knowing how heavily guarded everything is. Everyone is just waiting for the pin to drop and break the shaky ground they walk on – or rather, under.
