One of the most important things you have to know before even listening to me talk about my books is what Eninones are. Eninone stands for ENigmatic, INtelligent, Otherworldly, Nonhuman, Entities. In a nutshell, they’re mythical creatures. Now, my list of Eninones is so ridiculously long that there’s now way I could even begin to cover all of them. But I will tell you the basic groups they’re divided into. I’m working on the taxonomy (guide at bottom) of Eninones and it’s taking me a very, very, long time.
There are seven Phylums in the Kingdom Eninone; Majigaige, Multinstar, Uncorpori, Inhominus, Dimits, Spirits, and Medies.
Majigaige includes all Eninones who are entirely human in appearance but use magic. So witches, wizards, mages, sorcerers, seers, etc, etc.
Multinstar are Eninones that have a human (or human-ish) form and an animal form. Weres, Minotaurs, Dragons, and Unicorns are just a few of these. Before you ask, yes, I do have some original species that I created. But there’s no point in mentioning them since you don’t know what they are.
Uncorpori are Eninones who only have one form. Berzerkers, Vampires, Satyrs, and such.
Inhominus are Eninones who only have an animalistic form. However, many of them have a human level of intelligence; sometimes even higher. This Phylum includes Basilisks, Gargoyles, Hippogriffs, Trolls, and other less than pleasant critters.
Dimits are Eninones of very short stature and usually grotesque features; Dwarves, Imps, Goblins, Mares.
Spirits are pretty self explanatory. They’re spirits. That’s it.
Medies is the smallest Phylum, and the only creatures that are not found naturally. Medies are Eninones that have been made through magic by other Eninones. At the moment, I only have four of them; Obbles, Zombies, Gollums, and the Children of the Blue Flame; undead creatures that make zombies seem harmless.
Within many of these classes, they break down into several more orders. Weres for example. First you have all the different orders of Weres, like werewolves, and then within werewolves it breaks down even more.
Now that I’ve stuffed all that into your head, the rest of my posts should make more sense. Eventually I’ll start doing feature posts about different Eninones. If there’s any creature in particular you’d like me to cover, let me know!
Definition of Taxonomy: the branch of science concerned with classification, especially of organisms; systematics.
In case you forgot from high school, the branches are Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus, Species.
