We always understood that the Mother exists, that she created the land and the forests, the wilds and the gentle rains. We also know that she created nightmares because she created us. ~ Wyr saying, originally attributed to the Black Hunter. ~
The Wyr are shapeshifters, having one human form and one animal form. Both forms are present since birth and are inherited from their parents. Meaning that no Wyr ever chooses his animal form. They are born with it and usually begin shapeshifting within days of their birth. To them, shapeshifting is as natural as breathing. Having an inborn link to nature, The Wyr are as at home in the wilds as they are among people.
Wyr have an extremely strong instinct for survival, even severely wounded they fight to protect themselves and others, suicide is something utterly foreign to them, as is accepting one’s death for any reason. To the Wyr, Death is the Dark-Hunter, and they will compete with him to the last breath.
