Did You Know?
As Dax, Odo and Taya investigate the valley, Taya tells the story of a shape shifter that is challenged to transform into a loaf of bread, does so, and is eaten by his challenger. This bears a striking resemblance to the Puss in Boots fairy tale recorded by Frenchman Charles Perrault
. In the tale, the booted cat tricks an ogre who can change his shape into changing into a mouse and eats him. See more
If I were a changeling, I'd change shapes all the time. Everyone'd want to be my friend.
I wish it were that easy.
Why wouldn't it be?
When I was younger, people were always asking me to change shape for them. They pretended to be my friends. But all they wanted was to see me become a chair or... animal. None of them ever really cared about me.
