Hinji are a shape shifting species that can change at will between a humanoid form and the form of a specific animal native to their home planet. Each Hinji has only one animal form, and many different forms have been identified with the most common being canine, feline, vulpine and ursine. Their humanoid forms average between 1.5 and 2 meters in height and can display a wide range of skin, eye and hair coloration. The humanoid forms of many Hinji share some aspect with their animal forms, such as body hair, large eyes or elongated canine teeth.<br><br>The shifting process has been a mystery to Starfleet Scientists since First Contact. Theories to explain the process have been posed, one of them has been provided by [[Choi Ji-hu]] Engineering Officer of the USS Constitution-B. In his theory, Hinji don't transform but have two distinct states (humanoid and animal) and an inherent quantum power over which of those two states is observed. According to this theory when a Hinji shifts from human to animal they usually discard anything they're wearing, and vice versa, especially dependent on size. In discussions with a couple of people, we figured that Hinji who prefer their animal states would obviously not have much of a problem with being mostly naked, and would probably find the idea of clothes for non-survival purposes bizarre.
