Classes, races and subgroups is always important when having a fantasy novel. The only one I think who wrote and crafted it well was Tolkien who created many fantasy races such as elves , orcs and hobbits to name a few and within each of those races of fantasy characters there were classes and subgroups.
Since I’m writing a fantasy werewolf novel series I also have a couple of different races that have class structures and subgroups.
In my novel I have 4 different types of races that take main stage in my novel.
THE VIATORS OF CAELUM(celestial beings)
ETERNALS (ghost spirits)
OTHER MYTHICAL CREATURES ARE:
I will be concentrating right now on the CANINERUH WEREWOLVES. The main protagonist and antagonist of my stories . As I explained and yesterday’s post about the hierarchy of my werewolves . There is also a subgroup and class system I did not really mention.
TYPES OF CANINERUH
The race of caninruh are divided up into six sub-groups:
These are the original canine wolves from the first world. Only six known original wolves are talked about in Sirena’s present world, Accalia , Zios, Xavier, Brant Rina, Ami;
Are full blooded canineruh offspring who were born in the second world from two eltern parents. They tend to mate with each other and don’t intermix outside the canineruh race.
Are the offsping or decendants of a canineruh erbe . They are the second generation of the Caninruh. They tend to mate with each other . Sometimes on occasion with Hibrida in the middle of the second world.
These are offspring who are born from both a human and an Eltern in the first or second world. They are half mortal , half caninruh werewolves and they sometimes mate with Spross and or Eltern but mostly with mortals because of their difference with the Erben because they are not full blooded. They are able to live among mortals until they are in their late adulthood. ( it is unknown to how many exist, since they are disowned throughout the carnineruh world among the other canineruh )
Are the offsprings or descendants of an Hibrida and a mortal . They are very tall. Even though they look mortal and act mortal they still have the thirst for the mortal heart but only after they turn eighteen or so. .Like all other canineruh, they appear mortal like up until the age of eighteen. When they turn eighteen they get acute sense of smell and hearing but they are not immortal. Unlike other caninruh sometimes the keinid gene never comes in their lifetime so they can live normally but after fifty years they die. They tend to mate with humans for that very reason, sometimes eliminating the keinid gene all together. ( My Main character Sirena is a Mong as is her father and his father before him. )
In the Hour Series Larefayel are caninruh that were originally mortals that the Kraldire Accalia turns as experiments because the canineruh cannot usually turn a mortal. They go feral from the transformation. Unlike the born caninruh they cannot water walk or have a celestial power. They only have two of the basic powers strength and speed. They are very, very strong, fast and perceptive, having the ability to kill anybody in their path. Like all other canineruh they have the craving for the human heart and the strongest craving. Due to the ecromine in Accalia’s system they can never turn mortal again. once they are bitten by Accalia the transformation is final and the mortal is dead.
Their transformation appearance is a mortal half wolf like creature with claws and fangs who eventually goes mad from becoming a canineruh. They are unable to shift back into mortal form. They are ordered by accalia to go after the pack that is protecting Sirena and to kill whoever they see. They have no control over their actions and they are the ultimate inhumane creature, not possessing any kind of feeling or emotion. With the egromaine now in their system after so many days they die turning back into their mortal body , looking like a lifeless sleeping mortal.
This is actually only some of it but I will be exploring more of my world’s class system in future post and podcast episodes.
