Gwen is Other, half pooka, half human, and in her small home town, this means she has to hide her true identity Although Others are out in the open, it doesn t mean they are accepted Gwen struggles a lot with her situation, sometimes unable to resist her urge to shapeshift, but always in fear that she will be discovered.
