** Humans are generally '''Mundane''' but with elements of '''High Men''' as in this setting only humans can become wizards or the psionic Magi. Humans can breed with all the other races, and their hybrids can also be Magi or Wizards. All half-humans except for half-elves are sterile. WordOfGod suggests half-human hybrids may have a higher chance to be Magi or Wizards than normal.
