Recognition


*** DISCLAIMER – THIS BLOG IS FICTION AND THE AUTHOR IS NOT LIABLE FOR THE ACTIONS OF ANYONE WHO PERSISTS IN THINKING IT IS NOT FICTION ***

We non-humans can recognise each other by sight, although the Werewolf Representative on The Committee says they do it by smell.

I didn’t ask her what each of us smells like; I am sure she would be diplomatic instead of being honest with me.

I suspect that vampires smell of blood and iron to them; humans these days probably smell of soap or perfumes.

I have noticed that a few minutes before the Human Representative enters a room the Werewolf Representative wrinkles her nose.  He does splash aftershave around.  However, we do not have their enhanced sense of smell.

Thankfully humans do not seem to be able to differentiate between a non-human and themselves.  If they could, we would have been wiped out a long time ago.

Old Vampires and New Vampires both recognise the non-human races by sight; my New Vampire contact Columbine gave me that information before she turned against me.

Vampires always carry themselves a certain way, as if the whole world is ours to control and own, although in the case of New Vampires they look more of a shambles.

With werewolves there’s always something faintly canine about them plus the feeling that they’re always alert and sniffing the air.  I often have an almost overwhelming urge to pat them on the head and find a bone for them, but I prefer my fingers whole.

There is always something lacking from the way humans carry themselves.  It’s as if they wear their problems on their shoulders.

The non-human races don’t seem to do this.  I suspect it’s our acknowledgement of the fact that whoever and wherever we are we will always have problems.  If we didn’t, The Committee would never have been formed.
