The Roane are shapeshifters descended from Luidaeg. They are not inclined to vengeance, and their magic is innate—they’re shape-shifters, like the Cait Sidhe, not skin-shifters like the Selkies. They’re also practically extinct, as a result of Evening Winterrose's ploy to punish them for their "false happiness". [1]

Characteristics Edit

green eyes, irises too large to be human[2]

changelings may not be able to transform[2]

they are also described as "known for prophecy" and every thing that Mary says in OSS does turn out to be perfectly correct, if not immediately comprehensible.
