Reposting this here from @Cipher 's intro thread at @Maggie Darkmoon 's request. The original question was about identifying a demonkin: The short answer is that it's complicated, even among family members. I take after my spirit mother, but we aren't 100% alike, and then there's the fact that hybrids of different species exist. When looking for a demonkin, all I can say is look for: 1) A tendency to fight to keep their emotions somewhat under control and normal. This isn't like a normal person. This is legitimately feeling that their emotions aren't typically appropriate and acceptable in "polite society." This isn't saying that they are specifically dark, or angry, or anything in particular. Just that the emotions that we tend to feel are alien compared to the majority of humans. On the flip side, we tend to have no reaction to some things when we feel we should have a strong reaction. This can actually be even MORE distressing. 2) Probably a strong connection to mystical/magickal things. That's not to say everything is going to come to you like you didn't even have to try, just that you feel drawn to it and always have. Almost certainly some form of strange needs. This can be vampirism (for energy or blood), need to meditate, or any sort of ritual or habit that you do that is obsessive. To use the medical term, you're probably going to have a fetish: A habit that you have to do or you'll feel legitimately ill. (Incidentally, that's what the word fetish means).
