"Celestial Kin" is a term used to reference someone who is kin with
a species which does not exist in the physical world and which,
according to science, never did. Some species, such as Dragons and
Angels, are thought to have occasionally come to visit the physical
world. They are still classified as Celestial Kin though as they are
not native to this realm.
is not a full list as there are thousands of mythical creatures, all of
which could theoretically be a kin species, but not all of which have
ever been reported as such. This list will be added to as I encounter
are one of the better known Celestial species; primarily humanoid
beings which minor differences, the most common of which being the
possession of wings. The word "angel" comes from the Greek "angellos"
which means "messenger," and Angel-kin reflect this. Many feel very
directed (not to be confused with feeling pulled) toward a certain
thing in life (playing music, teaching, gardening, etc.), and they feel
an almost compulsive need to share this with others rather than keep
this with themselves.
Some Angel-kin feel themselves to be actual incarnated angels or the offspring of such angels; both are entirely possible.
Basilisk is a snake which is both small and very powerful. They could
cause death with a glance and left a trail of deadly venom in it's wake.
are likewise attached to death; they not only have an affinity for the
energies of death and decay, but things around them will become sick
and die more often than random chance would allow. Because of this
they can sometimes be mistaken for a Vampire which has been psychically
feeding off of the things around it. They are typically unnerving to
the people and animals around them. Basilisk-kin, almost as a rule,
turn out as Dark Weres. Those which are Therianthropes which never go
through a full Awakening typically suffer from mental disorders because
of the necrotic energies which surround them.
quite difference in appearance, the essence of the Cockatrice is very
much the same as that of the Basilisk. It appears as a half-rooster,
half-dragon beast with a deadly stare, poisonous breath, and eyes which
were either red or completely black. The Cockatrice is said to die if
it hears a rooster crow.
Basilisk-kin, Cockatrice-kin are typically surrounded by death and the
associated energies. Also like Basilisk-kin they have a tendency to be
Dark Weres or mentally ill Therianthropes. The primary difference
between a Basilisk-kin and a Cockatrice-kin is that the Basilisk is
reclusive whereas the Cockatrice is outgoing.
are a widely varied species. The two main types are the Western Dragon
and the Eastern Dragon, though there are a small number of hybrids
between them. There are also legends of beings such as "Sea Dragons"
but these seem to be a different species altogether. The only things
which seem to be in common for all Dragons is their shape (following
the pattern of either the Western or Eastern variety) and all Dragons
appear to have an elemental connection of some sort. Beyond that they
seem to be extremely different; they come in an amazing variety of
sizes, diets, and habitats. Even the commonly seen imagery of scales
does not hold true; many Dragons have feathers, fur, or naked skin.
The element(s) a Dragon is connected to may not always be "standard"
elements such as Earth or Fire. Chaos, Electricity, Ice, and Darkness
are also elements to a Dragon.
often have an affinity for energy working but, interestingly, not
always a gift in the element of their Dragon. It is presumable that it
is simply a different way of manifesting in the human body. For
example, if a Dragon is Fire-Elemental and controls fire with it's
mind, this may translated to it's human body as simply being a gift to
controlling things with his or her mind and the specifics of that would
then be defined by the human psyche.
are a species of folk who live in another world. They are typically
either immortal or extremely long-lived. They are a predominantly
peaceful people who are magical by nature and incredibly sophisticated
by culture. Most Elven societies are incredibly artistic; everything
from cooking to road-paving to the crafting of ever-day tools is turned
into a delicate art in which the final product is meant to be
breathtakingly beautiful in addition to being useful. There are,
however, Dark Elves which thrive on pain rather than beauty. Elves
typically have a thin, youthful build, thin silky hair, light skin, and
brightly colored eyes. Dark Eves have dark skin and dark eyes.
often share the love of beauty and are often artists of some sort, most
commonly poets. They also often share in their Elven heritage by
having a natural gift in magick. Kinship most commonly shows itself
either through magick or through dreams; as such a sophisticated and
magical people, Elves tend to communicate quite directly to their kin.
While being Elf-kin has no known affect on what one's physical body
will look like, people often get an Elven impression
from Elf-kin. They may seem thinner or younger than they really are,
and their eyes almost universally seem to have some indescribable light
to them, even if they are physically a deep brown.
Griffin is a Lion-Eagle hybrid, having the body of a lion and the head
of an eagle. The forelimbs may be either lion's legs or eagle's
talons. Nearly all Griffins have large feathered wings on their
backs. Griffins are incredibly noble and dedicated and mate for life;
if a Griffin's mate dies it then spends it's life alone and does not
search for a replacement.
Griffin-kin have a tendency towards being physically fit and quite strong. They do not rely entirely upon this as so many would and instead seek out knowledge to balance with their physical might. Griffin-kin outstandingly ethical and are usually quite religious.
