    The art of therianthropy is shape shifting into a creature. The best example in Skyrim is lycanthropy. There are many other animals that you could change into. What kind would you be and should have more kinds been added to Skyrim?

    Me, I'd be a Werewolf and I believe more kinds of therians should have been added to Skyrim.

    I'm content as far as the game goes, with Lycanthropy and Vampirism, but I'd like to be able to turn into a raven. Favorite shape-shifting animal for a long time.

    A least you'd be able to fly. That's a plus

    My spirit animal is a fox and foxes are my favourite animal, so I'm going to say fox. As a lycanthrope though probably something like a werevulture, but maybe an eagle or a raven. If any of you have ever seen the film Howl's Moving Castle, that's the kidna thing I'm thinking of. If not just a werewolf of course :)

    Ha, I wouldn't want to be stuck with my spirit animal. Giraffes *shudder*.

    Well, seeing as my favourite animal is a robin, I'd have to say a robin.  European Robin, of course, as they are significantly larger and more aggressive than their American counterparts.  Great for a surprise attack, as nobody would expect a robin to attack somebody, and for fantastic reconnaissance.

    That is a real aspect. You'd fly and breath fire at least. Oh, and gain a good foot in height.

    A different kind of therian: avienthrope. Birds. This topic can span into other creatures irl. Werehawk for you.
