A pale scaled shaper is far taller than a her ought to be, with a stretched appearance like that of a doll tugged by battling children. That is, if she is even she: the pale robes that she wears, with their faint appliqued patterns of winking copper scales, betray only the most suggestive promise of a herself form beneath. There is something upsettingly inhuman about the shaper's face, which has the shape and proportions of a human's, but eyes that glow like green embers and a dusting of ridged scales on its cheeks and brow.
Shapers can summon sidewinder cobra's on occasion if given enough time. The sidewinders can be skinned.
