Welcome to the Falconius Shapeshifting Institute! Here, young shapeshifters from all over the world come to learn how to fully understand what causes their shapeshifting and how Hrasa, Goddess of the Hunt, blessed you with the abilities you have. Now, Hrasa blessed the shapeshifters with the ability to change into six animals maximum and two animals minimum, two of the earth, two of the sky, and two of the water; extinct, extant, and mythical.
We of the Falconius Shapeshifting Institute are a secret schooling institute, located in the remote wilderness of London. Meaning you have to be a shapeshifter to get a letter. Or, if you are far removed from civilization, we will come find you.
For this one, it is a shapeshifter boarding school. Obviously. I’m thinking that your characters are already students at the Institute and some will receive the letter later.
New shapeshifters to the Institute can be shown and the ropes of the school by you character.
Bit of random information: Hrasa is a goddess I made up. She is Goddess of the Hunt, the Moon, and Plague. She created the werebeasts/beastweres, therianthropes, and shapeshifters, according to my lore. She is also part of the Malues branch of the First pantheon (first-pantheon.weebly.com).
