Well ... not all multiples are otherkin. Our system are all humans. But there are multiples who are otherkin (the different members of the system having their own 'kintypes) and multiples who have both human and otherkin members (our luffly mods House Hesson, for example).
So multiplicity itself? Not a type of otherkin (in my eyes, anyway). But is it possible for a multiple to be otherkin too? Yes.
Yep, even with walk-ins in particular - they don't have to be another species to qualify. Always baffled us a little why some 'kin fora have boards for all that, though we've come to appreciate it simultaneously because we generally have less explaining and mythbusting to do on those fora. ^^;
Nor are vampires necessarily Otherkin, although we generally feel it makes more sense to lump them
in with Otherkin because they too are energetically different from a typical human, whereas multiples may just not be neurotypical (and thus more like synaesthetes and others who are psychologically odd but not necessarily disordered).
As far as species go, those of us who're awake often enough to have developed prejudices are leery of angels thanks to some of 'em acting a little too big for their britches. (Amusingly, our celestials are not as bad as some others on this count.)
Aspen and I tend to look down on any other race to some degree. I tend to assume they're weaker (and also that non-warriors of my race are weaker, meaning I'm thinking this about nearly everyone
and it can be hard to shut off), be over-protective, and sometimes tease with scary things because it's funny to watch the meat jump. Aspen just doesn't like any other species, which makes it fun
for her to be around sometimes...
