First Tier Animal Mimicry

These are the abilities an Animal Mimicker would absorb as a first tier user. It takes a full action to absorb an animal's abilities. At this level, you may only shift between two animal forms in a scene. These do not necessarily represent exact species. Most are interchangeable. For example, if you want to be a squirrel warrior, use Rabbit. For a rhino, Bear. A jackal would be a Coyote. Just make sure the PGM is cool with the interchange.

Despite stat changes, Life Points do not increase, nor does movement speed. Weird, right?
