Shadow Skittering “I saw the whole man slowly emerge from the window and begin to crawl down the castle wall over the dreadful abyss, face down with his cloak spreading out around him like great wings. At first I could not believe my eyes. I thought it was some trick of the moonlight, some weird effect of shadow, but I kept looking, and it could be no delusion. I saw the fingers and toes grasp the corners of the stones, worn clear of the mortar by the stress of years, and by thus using every projection and inequality move downwards with considerable speed, just as a lizard moves along a wall.” - Bram Stoker, Dracula

The Witch presses her forehead against that of a calm and trusting animal. A wisp of her spirit escapes her mouth as a tendril of grey-green smoke and slides inside the animal's nostril. Her body then goes limp and collapses beside the creature, now a vacant husk, and the Witch proceeds to walk away, now temporarily borrowing the animal's body.

A borrowing Witch is a welcome visitor in the animal's mind and cannot overstay her welcome or force the animal into danger or wander too far from her body. She is capable of casting the Evil Eye from a borrowed animal as well.
