-Basically, a "polymorph" is an alterhuman that has a theriotype that is always changing, kind of like a shapeshifter-! The alterhuman in question may experience shifts of 1 animal at a time, or possibly even multiple (most common in phantom shifts) for example, feeling a wolf tail, and a bird's wings. These do change, though. Sometimes, the person may experience having a seperate identity to this too though. For example: experiencing shifts and strong connection of a red fox; AS WELL AS of always changing creatures-!
-Polymorph vs Polytherian
-A polymorph theriotypes change very frequently, while a polytherian's just stay the same. A polytherian has more than 1 theriotype.
-Please do not jump to the conclusion that you are a polymorph quickly after learning about your therianthropy as it is common to get your kintype wrong-!
-How did I find out that I was a polymorph/my experiences.
-I had been having major struggles finding my theriotype as well, it was constantly changing. When I thought that I had finally found my (second) kintype, I decided to draw it, write about my shifts etc. I noticed that when I was doing this, I would research the animal that I thought it was, as you should. The animals that I researched, I felt a super strong connection with. And it felt like ME-! But these really didn't last too long. Years go on and I experience many shifts. Mainly of dragons. Some of Reindeers, Dogs, Cats, Wolves, Tigers, Crocodiles, maybe even mixed species. Although again- these animals were constantly changing, I would rarley have a shift of the same animal-! I KNEW that I had a second theriotype but, what could it be-?
-A few months ago, I came across the term of a polymorph. I heard of others describing their experiences and it just felt so close to home.
-But. How can you have multiple kintypes if they are constantly changing-? I need an explanation-!
-For me at least- I have always felt a strong connection to dragons. Had dragon shifts, etc. I am comftable in my dragon identity and I never stopped having this connection with dragons. Although with my polymorph side, the creatures here are always changing, unlike my dragon.
-Hopefully this all makes sense-! If you have any questions feel free to ask. :3
