Otherkin are the absence of awful brained humans who fear evolution, who hate religion or spirituality they can not understand.
Otherkin are real. It has nothing too do with roleplaying games. Kin aren't just teens either, they can be my age and higher. I am 28.
Otherkin is based on the belief their souls or bodies are human, they strive for a spiritual balance like they knew on their home realm worlds or planets.
There can be elves, fae, vampyres, angels, celestials, daemons, furries, therians, odd energy beings who have no gender, or body form called polymorphs, and others called starseeds.
Some otherkin believe in ascension. The belief one can send their energy vibration level through the roof, and ascend beyond petty thoughts, mind games, and silly human things, such as material posessions, money and the eternal wants of something or another.
Otherkin is not the home realm word for us as a collective. My home realm uses the word "A'lendiae". It means "people of the balance". Not as if humans should believe it, but humans as a race would be the butt puppets of another metaphysical world of evil kin if the others did not give a damn in saving them, earth plane, and the concepts of magick as breathe, dance and flow. But that is ok, we understand humans too be without evolution and maturity, and we hold great pity for them. One day perhaps they will learn that their hate and fear of the unknown are useless acts of depravity, and will see the eroor of their ways after they transcend after death into another realm..one they often made fun of for pointless reasons.
The otherkin mocked the human who could not understand.
The otherkin feasted on the human's blood. Just because he was ignorant did not mean his prana wasn't satisfying.
The otherkin looked down on the fear of humans, and wept.
The Otherkin looked up at the stars and smiled.
The otherkin stood in the rain, drank the rain from the leaves and did a jig in a puddle. Life was grand sometimes.
n., sing. or pl. A person who holds the belief that they are not entirely (or not at all) human. Usually a spiritual belief pertaining to one's soul and the reincarnation thereof, but may also be a belief that one's genetics are descended from, for example, the Irish fae. The word Otherkin was coined to describe people who felt a connection to mythological humanoids such as elves and faeries, but has expanded in recent years to include dragons, gryphons/griffins and other supposedly mythical beasts as well as animals, angelic/demonic beings (angelkin/demonkin) and in some cases extraterrestrials.
adj. Of or relating to Otherkin.

1. Many Otherkin believe that they were something other than human in a past life.

Otherkin are a fringe group of human society who, for one reason or another, believe themselves to be the reincarnation of mythic creatures, typically elves, though others include dragons, demons, vampires, ogres, deities, and so on. Related groups include therianthropes, who believe themselves reincarnations of animal souls, and otakin/otakukin, people who think they are reincarnations of fictitious characters from Japanese anime, manga, and video games.more...
Otherkin often find themselves the subject of ridicule. In the majority of cases, it is because their beliefs fly in the face of rational, critical thinking and tend to fall apart very quickly under hard scrutiny. One of the most common beliefs is of an Elven Holocaust in which humankind supposedly wiped the elves from the Earth, despite the fact that no such evidence, archaeological or otherwise, exists anywhere in the geologic record either for the supposed holocaust, let alone the existence of elves.
Other aspects common to Otherkin belief include a sense of superiority over their fellow human beings. This takes a variety of forms, such as a tendency to ascribe posi...
Otherkin are a magical race of people that are usually combinations of two very separate creatures. For example, an otherkin will often be part morbidly obese and part attention whore.more...
Otherkin are often misunderstood...because it's hard to understand someone when they've got their mouth full of one of those sculpted dragon-penis shaped dildos.
It's not unheard of for a teenager with gawky looks and low self-esteem to stumble across an enclave/nest/website/asylum full of these people and, after being greedily accepted by them, suddenly remember that he was (in a previous life) part basilisk, part Merlin. He/she will maintain this belief until he/she gets laid. NOTE: If he/she gets laid by a fellow otherkin, all bets are off for the return of sanity. He/she will probably die at the age of 59 with a smile on his/her face, knowing that in the next life he/she will be a wyvern claiming to be Normalkin that was once human who the other wyverns will make fun of and push into the mud.
In a perfect world, we'd be allowed to send them to camps where guys in knight armor would spend the day walking around and smacking them gently on the head with blunt swords until they smarten up, but this is not a perfect world. The best we norms can hope for is to catch one unawares, steal their prosthetic unicorn horn, and run away giggling while they stand there wetting their pants in impotent fury and screaming "Brinnnnng baaaaack myyyyy horrrrrrn!"
Otherkin are prone to outbursts of nonse...
Otherkin are an unfortunate group of incredibly deluded souls that believe they currently are or at one point were nonhuman entities. An otherkin might believe they are anything from a vampire to a dragon to an elf to an angel, though more obscure creatures are possible (griffons, succubi, etc). It is also possible to be a mixture of two or more of these creatures, in the instance that you believe referring to yourself as a werewolf or angel is too limiting. Why not be a werewolf angel? Or a dragon vampire elf? The sky's the limit when you're just making shit up. They are extremely defensive, and if you don't believe them, it's obviously because you're a "mundane" who doesn't get it. I've met several otherkin, and I can safely say each one of them was an unwashed jackass.
note: Not to be confused with a furry, though they both communities are fairly closeknit.
note2: White Wolf roleplaying games and the god damn internet are largely to thank for their existance.
Becca believed she was a half-fey/half-dragon. Fey are mythologically known for their grace and beauty. Dragons are known for majesty and charm. Becca weighed 300 lbs.
"D," as he liked to be called, believed he was a half-angel/half-demon. He said "D" stood for "The Demon," cause in high school, he had a different lady in bed every night. This claim is rather dubious, as he was missing teeth.
Ray believed he was a vampire hunting werewolf. He would go out to hunt and kill them on the suburban cul de sac he lived on. He has slain the vampire Lestat (of Anne Rice novel fame) no less than three times. Point of interest: Ray also wore a girdle.
The otherkin are a group of people who believe their soul originated as something other than human. The source of that origin as as varied as the individuals themselves. These can range from creatures of various mythologies. (i.e, faeries, dragons, vampires, etc.) to figures of more conventional spiritual beliefs. (i.e. Angels, Demons.) as well as but not limited to these and even more fanciful types. (i.e, Starseeds, extra-terrestrials, or any other variety.) The explosion of Otherkin groups and the spread of this belief is due in no small part with the accessibility of the Internet, allowing these groups to congregate and exchange ideas. Though the idea itself predates this media by a considerable number of years.more...
Each of these Otherkin types undergoes a process that is often called an Awakening. This awakening, according to several Otherkin sources is a process that brings about a spiritual transformation of the individual, taking them from their "Mundane" life and connecting, or in some cases reconnecting them with their "Other" selves and all of the attributes associated with it.
It is much debated as to the substance of this sub-cultures belief, as well as the mental stability of those who hold this belief. Often pro and anti Otherkin debates degenerate into namecalling matches with animosity on both sides.
Having listened to the different sides of the argument I can see valid points from both camps. The truth of the matter is this: It all comes down to what...
Those individuals who believe that although born human, their souls are those of a non-human being, animal or mythical creature. Many believe that they are reincarnations of such beings and are able to access memories of previous lives.
The movement is the source of much controversy, ranging form philisophical/intelectual and spiritual debate to mud-slinging, derision and name calling. Some 'kin are happy to lead what the great majority of people would describe as "normal" lives, finding solace, support and companionship amongst their fellows, free to explore the nature of their seemingly paradoxial existance. While others may appear eccentric, arrogant or insane to the bulk of the populace. It must be noted that as with all groups, organisations or belief systems the actions of a few can lead to a negative perception of the group as a whole in the eyes of others.Indeed some Otherkin view themselves as superior to "mundane" humans, blaming the modern ills of society and the world as a whole on humanity.
Believing themselves to at least partly inhuman. Otherkin are oft treated with hostillity.
