This site centers on two different kinds of shapeshifters: the avians and the serpiente. They have waged war for so long now the war is settling but the people of each clan still has sore spots for the opposite clan.

The Serpiente

The serpiente could not be more different from the avians. They wear their emotions openly, even in some situations where a little control might be appropriate, and are much more free-thinking than the avians. Pretty much anything is allowed in serpiente society as long as it doesn't harm anyone. As worshippers of Anhamirak, the serpiente value free choice above virtually everything else. Ordinary serpiente who follow the Cobriana line consist of emerald boas, pythons, vipers, black rats, red rats, taipans, and mambas. Though the white vipers are also serpiente, they are descendants of Maeve, the high priestess who originally stood above Kiesha, and they refuse to acknowledge a cobra as their ruler. The royal line of the serpiente are the Cobriana, cobra shapeshifters and the descendants of Kiesha. The ruler is called the Diente and their husband or wife (referred to as "mate" in serpiente society) is called Nag (male) or Naga (female). Unlike avians, serpiente frequently have relationships before getting married and when they do marry they choose their own mate. Serpiente culture highly values dancing as well as music and art. The dancer's guilds are a land of their own and though they are loyal to the Cobriana, the Diente's power over them is only minimal. Serpiente are very social and are always surrounded by other children while growing up, even when sleeping. This need for company continues throughout their adult lives.

Serpiente are cold-blooded even in human form and as such their body temperature is usually near the temperature of the room or colder (if a cold temp.)or hotter (if a hot temp.). Ordinary serpents have hair in various shades of anything varying from light, honey brown to black. Their eye color can consist of varying jewel tones including amber, sapphire, and emerald. The Cobriana family are known for their black hair and garnet colored eyes, which can hypnotise with a glance while the white vipers are known for white-blonde hair and varying eye colors. All serpents can assume a Demi form which consists of their eyes becoming more brightly colored and the pupils turning into slits. They also grow fangs and snake skin. If their second form is poisonous, their Demi form will be too, and though the poison will act a little slower it will still be deadly and much more painful.

The hatred that the serpiente have for the avians is intense, even though they also cannot remember the reasons for the war.
