Ok, fixed it. I could use a bit help on the Tam Rek situation, but I put that the wizard was small and got around easily, to avoid danger and that he was born within the woods and grew up there. I hope that that is good but if you have a better idea, then I'll gladly change it.
No problem with the Auturian, i actually studied... Again, all new information is italicized, older info is normalized, and just some minor edits were done. I hope those edits were good enough to change ya mind. If not, then I would have to ask if you could take down my post so i can edit this like hell.
The shapeshifting part of the creature is its zist. Thats one of its characteristics, and taking it away is like cutting off a big chunk of what the creature is for. Do you wish for me to further explain how the creature is able to shapeshift to make it easier to understand?
Appearance: Inca's dont have any true form. When they do not choose their form, they are seen as blueish grey clouds. They do however change into other forms quite often, specifically the elemental forms that the creature lives in and a creature that is common to that area. For example, if the creature lives in the woods, then it will take the form of foliage and an elf or a wolf.
Special Abilities: It can take on the form of many creatures and different elements, all depending on its surrounding environment. They are also very strong, making them hard to kill for anyone. It will take a large part of its environment, and condense it within itself in the same form as the creature by squeezing the chunks of its environment within itself, and leaving enough space within the chunks to squeeze itself in the cracks and take control of the form as if it were stealing another creatures body (it cannot steal another creatures body though)
Territory: Incas live almost everywhere. They cannot be killed when in their original form, and can adapt quite easily to their environment. But if they do not change back into their normal form and go someplace that the form cannot withstand, then neither will the Inca.
Diet: When inside cloud form, they use different energies from the air (the same energies found in lightning clouds and humid days) to 'energize' themselves. They also eat tiny bugs and creatures that fly around the air.They gain their energy from their environment, when they use its surroundings to change its form. They eat food and vegetation when they are inside a form, but this could lead to some color distortion in original form. See Other Information;
Habits/Behavior: Inca Tati's are very rare and do not have any contact with each other, besides mating. They are very docile and are easily commanded. But when they are disturbed or feel if they are being threatened, they will take the strongest form and be extremely violent, often killing many people or living creatures at once. Inca Tatis are very shy, hiding or blending into the environment whenever many creatures are around. The only reason one would be seen is if it is caught off gaurd or if it has trust in that creature.
Mating: Mating only happens once every 2,000 years. Two Inca Tatis will form together, and transform into one cloud for a period of one year. Within that year they will change and morph into many different creatures at a constant rate. After the year has passed, the two Inca Tatis will literally explode, creating many offspring. Most offspring transform too soon, and cause themselves to dissapate. Only a few offspring survive the beginning phase of life. After they have grown without form for one month, they will be able to start to change into different forms. After 1 year they are fully grown and leave the original birthing area to find decent territories. The only way for the Inca Tatis to control their population from overgrowing is to change into just an element, and not a form of the creature. This will cause the creature to die. This only happens if it does not mate after the 2,000 year period. The only reason for an unnsuccessful mating would have to be the color of the Inca Tati. See Other Information;
Origin: The origin of this creature is unknown to the few that know about the creature. The only people that do know are its creators. It is often said it was created as a war creature, and commanded to kill as many opposing forces as possible. Others say that they were once living creatures that never ceased to live. This probably changed them into living ghosts, or the Inca Tatis. But the true origin and reason behind their shapeshifting abilities are that they were once a wizards experiment. This wizard lived a very solitary and lonely life deep within the Auturian woods. He was born and raised inside the forest, but did not like the urban life. He was small and knew his way around areas so he could mainly to avoid the dangers of the woods. It was extremely rare that he went to visit the nearby village of Ria. He always wanted someone to take over after he decided to die. He was much too old to have a son or an aprentice, so he decided to get a pet. Most all the pets he had were very hard to handle for him, and he would always forget about them and they would eventually die(for you see, he was a very forgetful person and would forget very quickly) They also served no purpose to him because they were not helpful in his works. So one day he decided to create a perfect pet that would be nearly hassle free, would not need any more food then bugs or and could be helpful in growing or catching certain herbs, beasts, or elements for the wizards potions, spells, or magic. Unfortunately the wizard did not remember an ingredient in the spell( he was very old and forgetful), and the creature was created accidentally with the power to shapeshift into the objects that it was created to retrieve for the wizard. The wizard did not notice this until he had created about 7. And they all had been living for about 5 years. The creatures slowly took the trait in morphing into other objects after long exposure to different shapes and organisms. At first he was disappointed because he didnt create the perfect assistant, but soon became fond of his pets. He himself thought that his accident could lead to a new form of magic. He became obsessed with the Inca Tatis and the accident behind their shapeshifting abilities. Years later, the wizard passed away because of his obsession and he never quite finished his research and experiments. Since there was no purpose for the creatures to live there, the Inca Tatis just floated away to find new places to live and find a way to survive. The wizard lived such a solitary life deep within the Auturian woods that nobody knew of them or of the wizards death. Eventually, the Inca Tati's spread out across the world and became shapeshifters. They are called Inca Tati's because they were first seen by a group of travelors within a small forest filled valley and the group had thought that they were an 'Incantation' of a ghost or spirit of a dead person. It was not until a special group of elves decided to study the creatures. They were originally called Incantations, but over the years the name was shortened into Inca Tati.
Other Information: Although rarely seen, Inca Tatis are often used in individual magic and private battles. They are extremely helpful if tamed, for they will listen to commands and can change their shape to fit the command. If fed normal food while inside a form, the Inca Tati's original color of Blueish grey can be altered depending on the food.
