In a world where shifters exist; a human and an animal sharing one body. A world where each of those shifters can choose a mate to spend the rest of their lives with, but the decisions forever, once mated that's it, so choose wisely. Nobu isn't your average shifter, but he wants to be. What you are and what you can do is very important in shifter society, the animal side of you, or your shift can set you up for life, same goes with your mate. That's why most shifters find their mates shift very important when deciding who it will be, some don't though, some are just looking for love.
