A derogatory term for Jews.
In the 2006 Mockumentary Borat, two of the characters believe that Jews can "shape-shift".

In 2015, in the wake of the Charlie Hedbo attacks, a reporter interviewed Parisians that claimed that some Jews could shape-shift in real life.

‘I talked to a young men who said that he felt, the attacks were actually a conspiracy by the Jews to make Muslims look bad and that they weren’t just regular Jews doing this. In fact they were a race of magical Jews, shape-shifting Jews that were master-manipulators and could be everywhere at the same time.’

Why the fuck is Joey such a shapeshifter? He is an asshole to me, he acts like an idiot around Michael, pretends to be serious around Amanda, and an emo around Brandon. How many different personalities can this poser really have?

A person who can alter their shape into a form of an animal. Usual shapeshifters can change into only one animal, but sometimes they can change into multiple forms at will. Silver cannot harm shapeshifters, nor can items of religon. The usual animal form is a very large wolf, and shapeshifters usually get mistaken for werewolves.
The difference is in appearance werewolves tend to walk on two feet, shapeshifters walk just like the animal they change into to and that the full moon has no control over their change, only their emotions.
The pain of losing him became so unbareable, that the shapeshifter changed into the wolf so she could try to feel something besides the pain.
