Along the traditional hero’s journey, the hero often meets a Shapeshifter character archetype.   Shapeshifters can be cursed into a different form, like the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, or they can be born with transfiguring capabilities, like Mystique from X-Men.  Let’s examine the roles of the Shapeshifter character archetypes in Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone, Twilight, and The Hunger Games.

In mythology the Tuatha De Danann are believed to be shapeshifters. This could be thought of in terms of having the ability to alter the perception of another individual; making one believe that reality is different from what is actually going on. Shapeshifters are also known as changelings.

As a fantasy, the Shapeshifter lets the reader escape the everyday world. As a “two-faced” mechanism, the Shapeshifter helps show the character’s inner conflict or unease about certain situations. And as a punishment, the The Shapeshifter adds some much needed oomph to the stakes.  We know authors love the Shapeshifter archetype because the character appears in sequels too– think Polyjuice Potion in subsequent Harry Potter novels and the werewolves in the Twilight Saga.
