Werewolf the Apocalypse Rage Across St. Louis
The First Change is the name for the first shape-shifting of a young Garou (and for most Fera). Usually it comes along with the first frenzy and the first usage of the Crinos battleform in highly stressful situations. At some times however, the change can be more placid and straightforward, as the shape-shifter melds into another form.
The First Change for most shape-shifters comes after adolescence for human born shifters, between 2 and 3 years for most animals and around 8 years for Metis.
