A Swanlike is a creature that can transform into a swan. In swan form, the Swanlike are slightly bigger than the average swans, and in their human form they possess several traits because of which they resembles of a swan, such as being covered in feathers rather than hair.
There are both male and female Swanlike and they have an average life span of around eighty years. Their biological classification is usually put in hominids like humans, since their mammal nature excludes them from the birds (aves).
Like swans, different types of Swanlike have different sizes, spanwidths and feather colors. The subclassification of Swanlike is therefore based on that of swans. This goes for the classification of their human form as well.
