For Glory, For Empire
The Erdoji are permanent outcasts, with no set homeland. Their shape-changing ability makes them natural spies, but also makes them impossible to trust in some people’s eyes. Some Erdoji have found a home with one of the Azkaderra or Bea’txo exile communities, but it never lasts, moving on after a few months or a couple of generations. Erdoji’s natural form is a pale, thin, hirsute humanoid with dark hair and a larger than average mouth with pronounced canine teeth, but by the time they are mature, they almost never go back to their natural form. The hair, eyes and skin transform into the new form, and remains until they change again.

Low-Light Vision (Ex): Erdoji can see twice as far in conditions of dim light.
Change Shape (Su): A Erdoji can assume the appearance of a specific single form of the same sex from one other race that the Erdoji is familiar with. The Erdoji always takes this specific form when she uses this ability. A Erdoji in her other form cannot use her bite attack, but gains a +10 racial bonus on Disguise checks made to appear like that race. Changing shape is a standard action. This ability otherwise functions as alter self, except that the Erdoji does not adjust her ability scores.
Agile (Ex): Erdoji receive a +2 racial bonus on Acrobatics checks.
Fast Shifter (Su): You were born with an innate talent for switching between your natural forms. Using your racial change shape ability is a move action instead of a standard action.
Natural Weapons (Ex): In her natural form, an Erdoji has a bite attack that deals 1d4 points of damage.
Languages: Erdoji begin play speaking Common and Erdogimen.
