The Change (Kanji: 替, Katakana: チェーンジ, Romanji: Chēnji) is one of the fifty-two Clow Cards. It is under The Dark and under the power of the moon, Yue, and Eastern magic.



The main body of The Change.

The Change's main body appears to be a blue, vaguely, chameleon-like creature with great, orange eyes that shoots out its tongue to switch objects around like a real chameleon does to capture prey. In Card form, it is a white, chameleon-like creature with small, green eyes and longish, wing-like ears.

Magic and Abilities

Swapping Magic: Change is able to swap the minds and bodies of two people. This swapping can only occur once a day, and if a change is not reverted after some time, it becomes permanent.

Fortune Telling: All Clow Cards have the ability to help their user predict the future. Their method of fortune-telling is similar to that of tarot cards. The interpretation of the message the Clow Cards relay depends on the magical power of the user.
