I designed this breed of "pig"-shifters for the New World of Darkness.
Basically they came to be because for one reason or another I wanted some pig-shifters but who are not a member of the Changing Breeds. Originally I found a chinese story about a village that anually shifts into pigs and descided to mix some Entelodons in it.
Luckily I found the Guarani Ao Ao ([link]
) and since some descriptions state it as a carnivourous peccary I found that this is fitting and could easily be a source for the legendary creature.
Basically this being is a mixture of a peccary and a Dinohyus and what you see here is it's human and beast form. Now the thing with them is that their beast form matures much faster than the human form, so by the time the child is 5 years old (the first shifts happens around 3 months of age) the beast form is already fully grown.
Now all I need is a name for them. Well that and an explanation why there aren't more of them.
