Added DiffLines:

* Olivier de Bretagne (birth name Daoud) in the ''BrotherCadfael'' novels is the son of a Syrian mother and a white father. His parents loved each other but, just to make it worse, weren't married and his father left without knowing his mother was pregnant. He makes his way to England in the books, and encounters discrimination both on page (from one of the villains of "The Virgin in the Ice") and off, although his liege lord doesn't seem to care a whit about his heritage and lets Olivier marry his ward and niece.

Added DiffLines:

* Film/{{Goodfellas}}: Despite all of their success in bringing in money for TheMafia, Henry Hill and Jimmy Conway never become "made men" because the group only accepts men with 100% Italian ancestry and they're both half-Italian, half-Irish.

* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10090792/1/Zero-no-Tsukaima-Saito-the-Onmyoji Zero no Tsukaima: Saito the Onmyoji]]'', Saito's familiar Kaede is a "silver {{oni}}", the child of a white oni and a black oni. Like most "metallic oni", she was treated as a second-class citizen by pureblood oni.

* Most notably in the {{Deryni}} works, Morgan and Duncan come in for a great deal of criticism from the Camberian Council for their mixed parentage. They are frequently denigrated as "rogue half-breeds", and despite showing great promise as mages (including manifesting a Healing talent lost for centuries), they are extended official Counciliar protection only after much acrimonious debate in ''High Deryni''. Even their continued heroism and loyalty does not mitigate the stigma for some elder Deryni High Lords and Ladies. From the human side of things, since there is [[FantasticRacism an absolute taint (socially speaking) from magic]], their parentage does not make them any less reviled.

* In the ''{{Dragaera}}'' series, it is a taboo for members of different Houses (sort of a combined race/ [[PlanetOfHats "hat"]]) to have children with each other, and those who are the product of such unions are pariahs. The only House immediately open to them is the [[EqualOpportunityEvil Jhereg]], which will extend membership to anyone for a fee. Crossbreed characters have tended to be villains with a FreudianExcuse:

* Marvel plays with this a bit. [[spoiler:Hulkling]] from ''YoungAvengers'' is half-Kree, half-Skrull. His Skrull grandfather even ordered his death, though now the Skrull Empire wants him back, as he's the only living member of the Imperial family. And the Kree would rather he join their ranks instead. The kicker? [[spoiler:He considers himself more human than either Kree or Skrull due to being raised as one, and doesn't want to join ''either'' group.]]

* Tanis of the ''{{Dragonlance}}'' novels is a half-elf who gets a fair amount of shunning from the humans as well. Many other half-elf characters in the same setting are treated poorly, too.
** This is pretty common in a lot of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' settings, especially DragonLance and DarkSun.
