"from Latin mundanus, from mundus, world."
It's widely (mistaken use...) used as the meaning of normal, earthly, to distinct regular person from a gifted/special one...
why is it a mistake... since time has changed the meaning of this word ... misunderstanding the meaning of WORLD or EARTH as Regular or Not Special .... making us a "Regular" and everything else is : Special in a good way... or a better than the "mundane" one...
Mundane means the world... and the world is everything but "Regular" the world/earth(and all the rest...) is incredible... we haven't even started to understand it ... let alone tag it as something less than anything... etc.
Outside the world of roleplay, a person's mundane is often used in lifestyle societies such as therianthropes and furries and vampires to indicate their sort of "alter-ego" when not assuming their persona.
