|“||Tiger shouldn't've gone into the woods alone. And you should've locked the door.||”|
— The shapeshifter reveals himself to the hunters
This unnamed shapeshifter was enhanced by and loyal to Michael.
History[edit | edit source]
After being captured by Sam, Castiel and Jack, Michael summoned his army of monsters to the Men of Letters bunker in Lebanon, Kansas to rescue him. Despite the best efforts of the hunters trying to stop the army, this shapeshifter got ahead of them in a black van along with a rugaru, two vampires and a werewolf. Upon approaching the hunters' roadblock, the monsters stopped the van and slipped into the woods.
After a hunter named Tiger entered the woods alone to follow the monster tracks, this shapeshifter killed him, took Tiger's form and emerged from the woods to claim that the monsters had escaped on foot and went around them. Not suspecting the truth, the hunters returned to the bunker, bringing the impersonator with them.
Upon arrival at the bunker, Maggie ordered what she believed to be Tiger to lock down the front door, but he actually left the door open so that the other monsters could get in and attack. As the monsters arrived, the shapeshifter revealed himself and disarmed Maggie. As the other monsters attacked, the shapeshifter hung back and watched. With the hunters losing, Jack tapped into the magic keeping him alive and unleashed a wave of power that disintegrated all five monsters.

- Super Agility - Shapeshifters possess quicker reflexes than a normal human.
- Regeneration - As they can change their form easily, shapeshifters can heal non-fatal wounds, and even replace body parts.
