[quote:963805f79e]I can think of two instances: when Timmain was pulled from her wolfen state to her elfin one by the influence of the Palace at the end of the Troll war; when Winnowill reshaped Rayek to, first, her own image, and second, his near High One status. In both of Rayek's instances Winnowill supplanted her consciousness with his but she did need to use his innate talents and power to manage it.[/quote:963805f79e]
It always seemed to me that after the war for the palace, Timmain consciously shaped herself back to elf form, thats what she wanted to do. At least thats how It came off to me..
And as far as Rayek and Winnowill..It didnt seem to me in any instance that she needed his innate talents to shapechange him. She could do that completely on her own with her flesh shaping ability.
