Dutch was not sure what to make of Jia's question. He certainly was not about to shift into any of his forms but maybe if he explained them carefully enough her curiosity would be sated. It was always an awkward occasion for the anansi to deal with, so much that he almost went and got a pamphlet printed, but he could never figure out the best way to have it written up.
"Well, I guess I could start with what you can already see." He spoke softly as he leaned back into his cushion, "The color of hair and eyes shifts based on what light is present, it normally reflects whatever colors are being used. Aside from those traits, I can jump pretty high and have a good grip on whatever surface I can put my hands on. I can't leap over buildings or climb them, but it's close to what a werewolf could do I suppose." He paused briefly to finish his drink and make sure that Jia was following along. He loathed having to explain things more than once and even more so when it was about his traits.
"Like the weres and yourself, I too can change form. However, I have a few different..types? I guess that's the easiest way to put it. Like you, I have a natural form, mine being that of a jumping spider. I'm pretty big for a spider but not quite as large as let's say a giant wolf, it's still pretty off putting to most though. My second form is when things are a bit different. See I sort of turn into this horde of smaller spiders, I don't really know how else to explain it. Nearly a hundred little things that are all pieces of me. I don't know how it works nor what magic is involved but I can control and see through them all. It's like I'm in a hundred places at once but still myself all the same."
He stopped again unsure of how well Jia was comprehending everything. She had kept silent the entire time, which from what he had noticed earlier was hard to do and he could simply not fathom what sort of thoughts she had about the whole situation. "My other form is sort of a mix between the first and my human one. I really hope no one ever sees it as it's rather awful to witness. I only use it if I feel like I need to fight to survive, I much rather use a gun or something though." He felt as though that was descriptive enough without being too damning, just as he left out the part about the spiders being tied to memories. There were just somethings he did not like to share.
