Horus is an example of therianthropy, the combination of human and wild elements. Subcultures based around this may form part of the Otherkin identity
Otherkin would have to be one of the more unusual social groups I've found via the Net - Humans who claim they're not human. As such.
And come on, work with me here - that's kind of cool right?
Otherkin regard themselves as animals, aliens, extra dimensional beings or other non humans. This is usually depicted as the state of an individuals soul, within a human body, generally attributed to the (I love this term) 'Oops, missed' theory of reincarnation. However there are exceptions - the Vampyres, for instance.
Generally becoming aware of their Vampiric status through discovering THE THIRST - the need to drink blood, (or for psionic vampyres - energy) . Not that there’s any real need to fear for your neck - these days biting is kind of frowned upon, and the drinking of human blood seems more a process of hypodermic needles and blood tests. Vampyres can get diseases too.
