Changeling or shapeshifter were terms used for the few species that could assume different forms. The Clawdites of Zolan were shapeshifters. Thanks to those abilities, changelings made almost undetectable impostors, which posed security risks. Notably, the Clawdite bounty hunter Cato Parasitti helped Cad Bane infiltrate the Jedi Temple on Coruscant by impersonating Chief Librarian Jocasta Nu. During the reign of Emperor Palpatine, the Imperial Intelligence of his Galactic Empire kept a careful eye on shapeshifters with underworld ties.
