Shapeshifters are a race of supernatural creatures, that have been encontered by Hunters and by Sam and Dean Winchester. Shapeshifers are common. Hunters seem to run into these creatures a lot. Shapershifters are humanlike creatures that start out human, but later learn how to change their form to look like anyone they want. Shapeshifting, also known as transformation or transmogrification, is a change in the form or shape of a person, especially a change from human form to animal form or a change in appearance form one person to another. When a Shapeshifter takes the shape of the person they chose to change into, they literally shed their skin, teeth and nails. When they change into the persons physical appearance, they access the thoughts of the person they are mimicking. The only thing that can kill a Shapeshifter is silver. A silver bullet or blade to the heart.
