Mythic humanoids are mythological creatures that are part human or resemble humans through appearance or character.

The multitude of mythic humanoids can be divided into four categories.

Categories of Mythic Humanoids[edit]

Human Skinned Humanoids

These humanoids can pass unnoticed in human society. Their ears may be slightly misshaped, their eyes may not line up, or their height may not measure up, but their difference in appearance can be attributed to genetic mistakes or mutation.

Monster Skinned Humanoids

Portions of these humanoids are clearly not of human make. Drastic differences in skin colour, eye type, scales and fur, claws and tails. The average person may find them quite unpleasant and untrustworthy because they are not all human.

Monstrous Humanoids

These humanoids are likely to instill fear and revulsion. They may walk, talk, and think like a human, but they are obviously not.

Temporary Form Humanoids

These are creatures that may temporarily disguise or transform into a human shape, but have entirely different true forms.
