Also Known As:
Human beings, mortals (often used incorrectly), homo sapiens,
people and persons.
Can live up to 80+ years, but the aged are rare, especially
when their vulnerability is taken into consideration. Humans
are notoriously fragile, prone to accident and disease, yet
they are the most prevalent and, arguably, most successful species
Their life cycle begins with birth, followed by infanthood, childhood,
adolescence, adulthood, old age and inevitably, death.
On the supernatural scale of things, humans breed like rabbits.
Compared to other species, which cannot procreate, or do so once
in a blue moon, the rate at which humans produce offspring is mind-boggling.
Mating habits vary greatly, as does courtship, although completely
monogamous humans are a rarity.
Again, this varies. All sorts of frames and builds are possible:
squat, tall, willowy, muscled, etc. Eye colours are restricted to
blues, greys, greens, browns and blacks. Natural hair colours include
blonde, brunette, auburn and black. Greys and whites usually only
appear at middle-adulthood to old age. No wings, horns or other
paranormal (if you’ll excuse the term) appendages.
No fixed type or common traits save that most humans are fixated
on issues of morality.
No powers. Zilch. Zero. Zippo. If a human has powers,
they always have some kind of mixed heritage.
o Frequently preyed upon or
targeted (such as in the case of vampires)

Fertility (as mentioned above)
o Gifted at harnessing and utilising
o Can be transformed into other
o Other individual strengths
