      i'm shocked to see vampries and werwolves at the bottom. and for Collosus Shadow it is said that many demons can transform as they please but not all demons can, you see they would have to possess the "gift" whch is given to the at "the right time" and only i they "earn it". Also Sirens can transform into what your heart is set to. Sirens are "women" but can change if your mind and/or heart is set another way. basically they transform into anything to get you near the rocks where they lie.
