The Hsunchen were originally indistinguishable from their totem but then Trickster took a knife and now they look like people. The spirits floating about are lost parts that must be integrated before they can recover their animal self.

I can certainly see a case for a Hsunchen having a skill to convince a totemistic spirit that he's actually part of the Hsunchen and use this instead of spirit combat. What this skill would be would be dependant on the totem.

You end up like Norman Bates IMO.
