I think as time progresses you’ll see very different answers to that question taking shape here on the blog. To me a Therian is a being that is both human and one other animal, a shifter. My therianthrope characters are called Pantherians, after the island they call their homeland.
Unique characteristics of Pantherians:
- Pantherians are shifters and to shift between forms they must raise their energy level to a fast enough vibration that they change state, much like water changes to steam, and travel to the shifting plane where their DNA is rearranged and then they lower the vibration descending to the earth plain and becoming visible again.
- Pantherian females require at least two males to conceive.
- A mysterious wasting sickness that infects the females has pushed the Pantherians to the verge of extinction, sending males deprived of mates to seek the company of human females in the human controlled regions of the world.
So out there in the world I envision, there are men hiding a barely leashed inner beast– men who are lonely, men who were raised to believe it takes at least two of them working together to thoroughly love and protect a woman. Above is a picture I took in a virtual world replica I am making for readers to explore.
