The Okami has two different forms - Mortal and Wolf. Each form has its own ups and downs, and shares the same stats as one another. An Okami may switch forms whenever she wants, but in combat she follows the rules of Switch Out when switching her forms.
Mortal Form - If the Okami chooses to be in Mortal Form, she has an increased +2 to her Charisma and Intelligence, and the speed of her Mortal Form's race (Human, Elf, Orc, etc), as well as gaining a +5 to Diplomacy, Handle Animal, and Perform checks.

The Okami's speed is also set to 50 for non-flying animals, and 40 to flying animals.
An Okami has specific weapons that it is only allowed to use, these are Reflectors, Rosaries, and Glaives.
An Okami is able to equip two of these at a time, one for a Main Weapon, and the other for a Sub Weapon.
Depending on whether the weapon is equipped in the Main slot or Sub slot effects how the weapon would act.
There are numbers of combinations, such as a Reflector for your Main, and a Rosary for your Sub. You could even have a Rosary in your Main and a different Rosary in your Sub.
However, on an Okami's turn, they must choose whether to use their Main Weapon's action, or their Sub Weapon's Action. An Okami may not use both a Main and Sub action on the same turn.
The Legendary Weapon perks gained at lvl 13, 16, and 19 allow you to pick which Legendary Weapon you want, such as if you wanted the Legendary Reflector at level 13, and the Legendary Glaive at level 19, but wanted the Legendary Rosary at lvl 16. An Okami may decide what level they gain the specific Legendary Weapon.
Switch Out -Using the Switch Out ability gained at level 1, an Okami can use her turn to switch out her Main and Sub Weapons, or she can switch forms. She cannot attack during this turn, but can still move around if she is switching her weapons.
The following are Legendary Weapons -
Legendary Reflector - Solar Flare, also gains the Brush Techniques Inferno and Fire Burst.
Legendary Rosary - Tundra Beads, also gains the Brush Techniques Blizzard and Icestorm.
Legendary Glaive - Thunder Edge, also gains the Brush Techniques Thunderstorm and Thunderbolt.
