Halfhumans are those with some anthro (humanoid animal) parts (often head, hands, feet, or a tail) and some human parts. They aren’t exactly half. Sometimes they might only have a small portion of Human such as just their arms are Human skin showing.
In the Halfhuman race, there are four different species:
- Fellissian (fe-LISS-ee-an)
- Canessian (ka-NESS-ee-an)
- Reptilen (REP-tilen) “ti” as in “tickle”
- Asaves (ah-SAH-vess)
Each specie also has several sub-species.
Derived from “feliformia” which means “cat-like carnivorans”. (Wiki: Feliformia)
Tiigla -Tiger parts
Ropardia – Leopard parts
Velecka – Black panther parts
Leovra – Lion parts
Derived from “caniformia“ which means “dog-like carnivorans”. (Wiki: Caniformia)
Kraitai – Polar bear parts
Gerfai – Grizzly bear parts
Sarvai – Fox parts
Haundai – Dog parts
Derived from the word “reptile“. Reptilen was a name the Human race gave to this species. The species themselves don’t have a defining name while they do have defining sub-specie names.
Gaetalin – Alligator or Crocodile parts
Frodgin – Frog parts
Lizlerrin – Lizard parts
Derived from the word “aves” which is the biological classification of birds in the Linnaean Taxonomy (I just sounded extremely educated thanks to Wikipedia.)
Asaves are Halfhumans with bird parts such as beaks, feathers, talons, and tail feathers. It is rare to see a full bird head because the bird anthro genes are extremely weak to Human genes. They do not have sub-specie names as there is not much distinction between Asaves.

You might notice that
not all types of animals appear as a part of a Halfhuman. That’s because their anthropomorphic counterparts have either just not existed in this world or became extinct before and/or after Human occupation of Elgana.
Horses, for example, or any kind of ungulate for that matter did not exist as anthropomorphic creatures in this world. But they do exist as normal animals. So there are no Centaurs or Minotaurs in this world.
An ungulate is an animal with hooves. So like deer or antelope will be ungulates. I know this without Wikipedia but here’s for your reference 🙂 Wikipedia: Ungulate. And also Oxford Dictionaries: Ungulate.
Other types of anthros that didn’t exist are: chickens, insects, spiders, centipedes, fish, snakes, any ocean creature, seals, otters, sloths, walruses, monkeys, coyotes, pumas, koalas, kangaroos, etc…well, if you see the list of what sub-species there are, you can tell the anthro types that may have not existed. It’s a pretty long list.
