SPECIAL ABILITIES

Change Shape (Su)

He has three forms—a humanoid form, an animal form, and a hybrid form. Equipment does not meld with the new form between humanoid and hybrid form, but does between those forms and animal form. He can shift to any of its three alternate forms as a move-equivalent action. If slain, he reverts to its humanoid form, but remains dead.

Curse of Lycanthropy (Su)

His bite attack in animal or hybrid form infects a humanoid target with lycanthropy (Fortitude DC 15 negates). If the victim’s size is not within one size category, this ability has no effect.

Lycanthropic Empathy (Ex)

In any form, he can communicate and empathize with wolves and dire wolves. He can use Diplomacy to alter such an animal‘s attitude, and when so doing gain a +4 racial bonus on the check.
