How to use "Changeling" in context?

When we think of changelings, there's usually a creature in our minds with fur, pointy ears and a love of becoming someone or something else. But what if that was only the beginning? What if changelings existed outside of our perceptions all along?

The word "changeling" comes from the Old English cunegel, which means literally "a moving creature." The concept of a changeling has roots in mythology and fairy tales, where a child is kidnapped, often by a fairy, and placed in either a fairy home or another's body.
