This trope has been re-defined. I don't know whether this example is valid for the new definition. It may need rewording to show how it fits the new definition. If it's valid, please restore it here and on the trope page.

In addition, the Conversation in the Main Page, This Troper, and bad indentation needs to be fixed before restoring this.

  • Loads and Loads of Races: Unusual example - all the kinden/races are human, but their bodies are changed to reflect a different creature by meditation. That said, the physical differences between kinden are still inherited.
    • It's not just the bodies, either- the Art is inherited, so if you don't have any Ant ancestry, you'll never get an Ant mindlink.
      • Actually it seems more like some arts are more common in different kinden but not exclusive. All Ant-kinden have the mindlink, but many Bee-kinden also have the link among their own kind and so do a few rare wasps. Wasps have a sting, Bees and Ants have a very similar acidic attack (I think).
      • And there is also Scyla and presumably other magicians who can use magic to not only change their appearance, but also their own kinden and art!
