time.



* The eponymous villain in ''Literature/{{Brokenclaw}}'' is half Chinese and half Native American, which gives him what is described as striking and charismatic features.
* Laura from ''Sarny'' is a rich multiracial, one-eight black, woman living in America right when slavery is being abolished. She passes herself off as White however the newly freed protagonist learns about her heritage when a part of her curly hair pokes out. Sarny is the only one who knows her secret.
* Nathan from ''Literature/TheHalfLifeTrilogy'' is half white witch and half black witch.
* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', a major theme is FantasticRacism based on how much wizard ancestry one has. However, it's stated at one point that "half-bloods" actually make up a large percent of the population, including [[TheProtagonist Harry]], [[AmbiguouslyEvil Snape]], [[BigBad Voldemort]] and [[TheDumbledore Dumbledore]]; generally it's the Muggle-borns, with no (or, according to WordOfGod, very distant) magical ancestry, that get persecuted.
** There's also some HalfHumanHybrid examples: WordOfGod says that Professor Flitwick has some distant goblin ancestry (explaining his extreme shortness), while the books eventually reveal that [[spoiler:Hagrid]] and [[spoiler:Madame Maxime]] are half-giant.
* It's suggested (but not confirmed) in ''The Literature/{{Discworld}} Companion'' that the Ogg family might have a bit of dwarf in them (they live in a country known for dwarf mines, tend to be skilled at magic or metalwork, and are sometimes rather short). However ''Discworld/RaisingSteam'' suggests that dwarf/human crossbreeding is uncommon (in the context of a mixed marriage that will probably have to adopt).
* In ''Literature/TheGoblinEmperor'', Maia, the titular character is actually half goblin, half elf. His mother had been forced into a loveless political marriage with the elven emperor. Of course, to the elves the fact that he is part goblin is more relevant than his elven half.
** Dee Moreno, the central character of ''Literature/TheHeartsWeSold'', is half-Latina, half-white. She's apparently white-passing; another character comments that she didn't realize Dee was Latina until she saw it marked on a form.
* Martin Fierro, the central character of ''Literature/MartinFierro'': Martín Fierro is a {{Gaucho}} meaning that he was part of the peasant population in Argentina, who is mostly ''mestiza'' (White and NativeAmericans ancestry). Even they call the women chinas, probably by the [[{{Nativeamericans}} indian]] eyes. The relevance of this fact is that Fierro story is one of a survivor of the FinalSolution from his government.
* Very common in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', [[WordOfGod GRRM]] has stated that very few families, if any, in Westeros are 100% First Man or 100% Andal due to 6000 years of coexistence and intermingling.
** The most prominent are the children of Eddard and Catelyn Stark. The Starks are First Men and so are the Tullys (Catelyn's House), but the Tully's are Southroners and totally assimilated into Andal culture and have some known Andal ancestry. Their kids are considered to be thoroughly Northern and the only notable Southron practice they keep is worshiping the Seven (along with the Old Gods). However most of them resemble Catelyn and only Arya looks Northern.
** Any Targaryen who breeds outside [[IncestIsRelative their family]] will have children who are this.
*** Dany named her unborn son Rhaego to reflect his Valyrian and Dothraki heritage.
** Most Dornish people are a mixture of Andal and Rhoynar. The Rhoynar were Essosi refugees who settled in Dorne and married with the Andals, which created a hybrid culture. The few full Rhoynar who remain kept their language and customs and live along the Greenblood River in southern Dorne, or have returned to the Rhoyne.
* In Ian Fleming's ''Literature/JamesBond'' novels, the titular character's father is British (Scottish, to be precise) and his mother Swiss.
* In ''Literature/ADiscoveryOfWitches'' Diana's paternal grandmother was human, and either she or Matthew had demon ancestry. Her children are a mixture of all three creatures and human. Matthew's son Benjamin, a vampire impregnated a witch and their descendants have been long-living witches. Sophie, a demon born of witches and Nathaniel, a demon son of a demon mother and presumably human father have a witch daughter.

born from ''Literature/TheHalfLifeTrilogy'' is half white witch the union of Okeke and half black witch.
* In ''Literature/HarryPotter'', a major theme is FantasticRacism based on how much wizard ancestry one has. However, it's stated at one point that "half-bloods" actually make up a large percent of
Nuru people. Looking surprisingly like neither tribe, the population, including [[TheProtagonist Harry]], [[AmbiguouslyEvil Snape]], [[BigBad Voldemort]] Ewu are sand-colored, skin and [[TheDumbledore Dumbledore]]; generally it's the Muggle-borns, hair, with no (or, according to WordOfGod, very distant) magical ancestry, that get persecuted.

light eyes, like albino Africans.



* In ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' Paige is a half-witch, half-whitelighter. She gains whitelighter powers such as orbing and healing without having to actually die though she has to learn how to use them while whitelighters know them automatically. Wyatt and Chris are also the same though stronger because their mother is a Charmed One.

to:

* ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'': Daisy Johnson is the daughter of a Chinese (and Inhuman) mother and a white father, and is portrayed by Creator/ChloeBennet, who has the same ancestry (except for the Inhuman part, of course).
* ''Series/BeautyAndTheBeast2012'': Catherine and Heather's mother was Asian-American, while their father is white [[spoiler: though Catherine's biological father turns out to be someone different than she thought]], reflecting Creator/KristinKreuk's [[ActorSharedBackground actual ancestry]].

Wyatt and Chris are also the same though stronger because their mother is a Charmed One.



* ''Series/CrossingLines'': Arabela Seeger is the child of a Dutchwoman and Nigerian man. The killer (a Russian) in the series finale also has a daughter with her deceased husband, an Angolan.
* ''Series/DearWhitePeople'': Sam openly mentions she's biracial to her friends, something which she never does in the film.
* John Gage on ''{{Series/Emergency}}'' is half white/half Native American, [[ActorSharedBackground like his actor Randolph Mantooth]].

** [[spoiler:Jon Snow is revealed as the legitimate son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark, making him half Valyrian, half First Man.]] The Stark children are half-Andal and half-First Man (Catelyn Stark is an Andal, and Ned Stark a First Man).
** Subverted with House Baratheon of King's Landing, as Jon Arryn and Ned Stark get to discover. Officially, Joffrey identifies himself as "Joffrey of the Houses Baratheon and Lannister, First of His Name" and his personal coat of arms is the Baratheon stag and the Lannister lion together as equals, seemingly, because the lion's tail hovers invasively over the stag's head.
* On ''Series/{{Grimm}}'' Renard is the illegitimate child of a Hexenbiest and a Royal. This gives him a fair amount of clout in both Wesen and Royal circles but it also means that neither group really accepts him as one of their own. It is not clear if the Royals are human or a special type of Wesen. Marriages between different Wesen races were taboo until very recently and used to be punishable by death. Children of mixed Wesen ancestry will generally assume the Wesen characteristics of one parent or the other thus avoiding HybridPower. A third possibility is mentioned but it is not elaborated on.

* ''Series/TheHandmaidsTale'': Offred's husband Luke appears to be mixed race in this series (their daughter Hannah is too).

Please note that in RealLife, the term "half-breed" is a highly offensive slur, which is why this trope got renamed.
