Mazmanta gazed admiringly in the mirror. Suddenly, her beautiful features changed. Mazmanta's three heads merged into one and her body grew thinner. Flesh crawled over her green scales, her tail shrank down to nothing. Mazmanta scrutinised the strange form her shapeshifting powers had metamorphosed her into. She flexed her hand out in front of her. Instead of seeing scaly claws, she saw long pale fingers. Mazmanta quickly grabbed a clump of ginger hair that hung limp across her now solitary, ashen face. She had heard of this creature only once before. It was horrible, it was revolting, it was... human!
