The shape-shifting device is used by shape-shifters to alter their face and head to look like a targeted victim. [picture needed]
The device looks like a small simple box with some controls on it and two ribbon cables that have connectors ending in a flat plate with three small prongs or spikes. To use it, the shape-shifter attaches one connector to the roof of the mouth of the victim (all have been dead, so far) and the other connector to the roof of their mouth. Use of the device appears to be painful.
