Feral Fox started following Are there any fictional characters you think of as Otherkin?
Feral Fox posted a topic in 💬 Chit ChatSo, yeah. Basically the title. Are there any fictional characters that you tend to interpret as though they were Otherkin/Therian? Some examples I can think of off the top of my head would be Ame and Yuki from Wolf Children. For one thing, they can physical shift, something I definitely envy personally. And yes, they are framed as quote on quote "werewolves" but they turn into full on wolves and not the anthro beasts you typically see in fiction. Plus, much of the typical lore is missing here. For one thing, Ame and Yuki often shift at will, though factors such as their emotions or environment still influences it (sound familiar?) Plus, much of the conflict in that film comes from their struggles with trying to understand/relate to normal humans and trying (often failing) to keep their shifts under control lest they end up doing something they regret later. I'm sure many of us can relate to the same sort of struggle in our own lives. Another one for me would be Wolverine, for obvious reasons. Finally, I like to think of Mowgli from the Jungle Book as Otherkin. Granted, it's hard to see that in most versions of the story. The original book is written in a very cryptic way. The 1967 movie is too cartoonish. and the Disney remake is too, well, Disney. But there's a Netflix version that came out recently (December 2018) called "Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle" which really sells Mowgli as a Therian type of character. Is he man? Is he wolf? Both? Neither? It's kind of unclear. And that's the beauty of it. As a human raised by wolves, he inhabits both worlds in equal measure. Sorry, I'm rambling. The point is, are there any characters you tend to think of as though they are Otherkin? You don't even have to give a good reason for pointing to one character or another, just so long as it feels "right" to you. For example, though I can't really give a good reason for it, Shego from Kim Possible always struck me as being snake like. So what do you think?
