Colton is a horse shape-shifter who lives in the deep south of Texas on his ranch. He doesn't mind his affliction, but prefers to live in solitude so as not to be bothered by anyone. He doesn't currently know anyone else who can shape-shift, and isn't even sure why he can seeing as how both his parents were regular humans. Luckily his animal form makes rounding up his cattle easier, despite him owning several actual horses.
He puts on a mean, rugged persona when he has to face others, like on his trips into the nearby town, but is actually a fairly nice person. He's just worried that his ability to shift will scare people and drive away any potential friends or partners if they were to find out. He knows it's irrational though, as he fortunately doesn't have anything scary as his alternate form. Eventually he'd like to find someone to settle down with on his ranch and spend the rest of his life with.
