Kin, for the most part, refers to human wizards – that is, humans with something else in them allowing them to do magic. However, the Kin are really any magical beings with mixed blood. This can be human and Seelie fey, Shadow’s Breath and Phoenix, Wulver and Rusalka – absolutely anything. Beings fall into this category if they do not clearly favor one parentage.
The human Kin are dominated by nine powerful families. The Lin Family is the oldest and most powerful.
Kin specialize in use of iron in their magic, as well as potions and chemistry. Their own power tends to be diffuse and hard to focus without an aid.
