Half-Mimic (Unfinished)[edit]

An odd group of beings. Hated by their parents, feared by anyone else. Outcasts who wish to blend in for no reason other than to be wanted. - Professor Mildwater

Physical Description[edit]

Half-Mimics are born from a mimic and any other purebred race. Unlike full blooded mimics and real treasure chests, there is nothing about half-mimics that human beings find sexually attractive. They are normally dark brown or purple to black in color, with others being light grey or brown. They have no hair and their skin can be glossy or matte. They can have anywhere from 1-6 eyes while having no other external features. Half-Mimics are generally taller than average people, being 6-8 feet, but are much skinnier due to lack of muscle mass. This lanky figure gives them much better flexibility.

History[edit]

Half-Mimics have not been a long-lived race. Most people feel little to no prurient interest in treasure chests, and as such, they are very rare. They are not a proud race, being cast out time and time again, left to dwell at the bottom of society. They have managed to scrape by through their shape-shifting, blending in among the common folk. This shape-shifting ability has kept them secret from most historians, but the ones who have shown themselves are known to be humble and kind, but a little off due to their solitary nature. Half-Mimics are generally more intelligent than normal, as their silent and lonely nature draws them towards libraries where they can distract themselves from reality. They are extremely sensitive about the fact that one of their parents had sex with a treasure chest.

Society[edit]

Half-Mimics are outcasts. They are the dirt beneath the feet of even the poorest of the poor. They can rarely find jobs, but when they do they work diligently to become masters in their craft, determined to be something other than the waste of space the rest of the world takes them for. They are rarely seen outside during the day and keep to the alleys at night. Half-Mimics generally do not have homes, instead living in abandoned sheds or sewers, preferably together if they can find each other.

Half-Mimic Names[edit]

Half-Mimics, much like purebred mimics, take their names from other races they encounter or inanimate objects.
