A shapeshifter is, according to Bertrand, a type of vampire. It has been suggested that the mystery being that Malik is working with is one (it's later revealed to be his mother). They can render themselves invisible (even being in the same room as powerful vampires without the latter noticing) and can morph into both humans and vampires. Bertrand said that morphing into breathers and other vampires "can only be done by using forbidden, dark forces" and requires centuries of studying.
