HUMAN
There isn't that much to say. Humans are the most common race, the widely dominant one on the planet. They aren't born with any special abilities like magic or mind walking, and have to learn such abilities by other means, if they learn it at all.


Humans, compared to most other races, such as the weres (who have an average lifespan of 800 years) and vampires (who never die of old age), Humans live a pathetically short amount of time. However, on the flip side, it seems that the most influential figures in existence are humans. Humans seem to have a mastery over the arts, from painting to music to drama to architecture, above all else and all other races. Apparently, that was a bit to say.


ANGELS
Are strong winged creatures. they can hide there wings and look almost human but they have a faint glow or something extra to them. They can fly with ease and are warriors. They seem to always be kind and caring but they do have a small temper to them.


ELVES
The elves were originally imagined as a race of minor nature and fertility gods, who are often pictured as youthful-seeming men and women of great beauty living in forests and underground places and caves, or in wells and springs. They have been portrayed to be long-lived or immortal and as beings of magical powers. Most elves are tall and thigh with high cheek bones a model type in the perfect world. They are less shapely then humans and have more pure skin. Most elves have light color hair and skin tone which makes them perfect.


Fay(faeries)
Much of the folklore about fairies revolves about protection from their malice, by such means as cold iron (fairies don't like iron and will not go near it) or charms of rowan and herbs, or avoiding offense by shunning locations known to be theirs. In particular, folklore describes how to prevent the fairies from stealing babies and substituting changelings, and abducting older people as well.Many folktales are told of fairies, and they appear as characters in stories from medieval tales of chivalry, to Victorian fairy tales, and up to the present day in modern literature.

Fairies are generally portrayed as being humanoid in appearance and as having supernatural abilities such as the ability to fly, cast spells and to influence or foresee the future.Although in modern culture they are often depicted as young, sometimes winged, females of small stature, they originally were depicted much differently: tall, radiant, angelic beings or short, wizened trolls

VAMPIRE
Are creature of the night that sprang to being long ago. There are many tales on how they came to be but for our little land vampires were a human genetic hiccup if you will. They seem to have been around as long as the human race along with the rest of the races. Well lets start off by saying we vampires are not a weak race tied to the night's hour. We can walk under the sun as well as the rest of you humans as long as we are well aged and have that talent. So of us can still burn to death by the perfectly blistering sun. O and by the way I wear a cross for good luck. Yes if you take my head off I will die or a my heart but only a few other things bother us really. I can feed off of humans and not kill then or turn them. Many humans like to be blood banks because the bite is like nothing else in the world better then well a lot of things. If I really wanted to change you I would have to take most of your blood and then give you mine in return…. But tis painful to change in to a vampire.


More info on the alluring vampire.


Vampires are creatures that thrive best at night. They often have pale skin (though older vampires can look more human if they want to) and they have fangs. Unless they are over three hundred years and have acquired the ability of Day Walking, the sun's rays will burn them, standing outside in the rays for too long will result in them being burned to ashes, painfully.

Also, vampires need to drink blood, whether it's from bottles and food, or (as most vampires prefer), fresh from another person. Being bitten gives pleasure to the person who is being drunken (or whatever the word is) from, and it's not fatal unless the vampire chooses to drain the victim entirely. Vampires don't necessarily have to drink blood, but if they don't, they'll become weaker, sicker, and even if they are a Day Walker, more susceptible to sunlight. Scratch that, they have to feed.

Most normal vampires feed regularly from willing donors or from purchasing. If they make a habit of drinking lots of blood at once regularly, they can gain something of a dependence on that amount of blood, like an addiction. In such cases, those with such an addiction will kill the people they drink from, draining all their blood. Often times, they will go into a trance as they drink, not even noticing, unable to control themselves. Younger vampires tend to do this.





DEMONS

They can look like anything from a human girl to a black beast. They are said to have horns or wings. They are normally evil but some people have said they found some kind ones.Demons are tricky and power hungry most can shape shift to look human but some are stuck looking like the creature they are.



Troll
Particularly in these tales they come in any size and can be as huge as giants or as small as dwarfs. They are often regarded as having poor intellect (especially the males, whereas the females may be quite cunning), great strength, big noses, long arms, and as being hairy and not very beautiful (Once again, females often constitute the exception, with female trolls frequently being comely).although often smaller in size, the different depictions have come to range from the fiendish giants

If you want to add a race let me know and I will do so I just added the basic ideas we had at the time.

WERES
A Were is a strong intelligent half human half animal. There are a few kinds of weres. Wolf, leopard, tiger, swan, bear, and so forth. We are not blood thirsty beast that rip people limb from limb. We are intelligent skillful creatures that most fear. Most of our kind have a pack type structure. We live normal lives just get the bonus of being part animal. Most of our kind can change at will but it takes time to shift. Human by day but creature by night sometimes during the day well anytime really. If you wish to be a were and were not born that way you will have to have a lot of blood purred into a deep wound. Our type is not that easy to get. So a bite won't do. But Don't give me anything thing silver it burns a bit.



More info on weres



Weres are humans who change periodically into anthropomorphic animals, the most common variety being a wolf (second-most common is a cat). Some are born as such, others are changed by having another were pour their blood into a deep wound. Weres heal very rapidly, and can sustain severe wounds, so long as their hearts aren't pierced or their heads removed (very similar to vampires). As humans, they are mostly normal, save for a few animal qualities, for example, some werecats will lick themselves, werewolves will shake to dry off, but aside from that and a tell-tale smell, they are quite normal, save for a liking of less-cooked meat and in a few cases, blood, though this isn't too common. Most weres don't mind the taste of blood and won't complain if it's in their meal, but it's not like they'll go out of their way to purchase a bottle. They gain a few animal instincts, for example among the carnivorous ones, a liking for hunting.


Weres need to change periodically. If they don't take their transformed state, they'll fall ill in human form, until they change automatically, which can be somewhat painful. If they stay in transformed state too long, they might have a few characteristics of that form stuck when they go back to humans (the eyes could permanently change, hair could look identical to their fur, etc.), and it can be difficult to change back if they stay in transformed state for prolonged periods of time. In such cases, magi or professional medical attention is needed to change back.


The touch of silver is painful to weres, and stings, though there are ways of being able to touch silver, through magi. If a silver collar is put onto a werewolf, as in the case of people in the ancient past who kept them as slaves, they will stay in the form they were in when the collar is put on.


A recently changed werewolf will remain a human for about a day. Then, he or she will run a fever, and will transform that night automatically, slightly painfully. After that, they can transform at will.





SHIFTERS
As a shifter you have two separate bodies that you can freely switch between. This change is always intentional and won't harm clothing, or any other article on the body. Injuries sustained on either of the bodies usually don't carry onto each other although death of one of the forms usually results in the death of both forms and the individual in question. Shifters go from human to one animal species. The intelligent of the human will roll over to the other form and visa versa. But don't give me anything thing silver it burns a bit.

May change into three animals but only three

Felines of any sort

Canines of any sort

Dragons

Mermaids

Horses

Bears

Foxes



ANTHRO
Anthro are human like in there bodies shape but that's as far as it goes. There bodies are covered in fur/feathers/scales. Depending on what they are crossed with they can have an array of different colors, faces, shape, and forms. Almost all anthros stand on there back feet. Usualy they can be from neko (just ears and tail) to full on anthro (fully furred with full animal characteristics in there faces. Most anthros take on the personality of the animal the look like.They do not shift like weres or shifters
