kin sub types {question}
As it says on my profile I am a vampire-demon hybrid but as of my demon sub type i am pretty much unsure and wonder if it is possible to not have a sub type until discovering one. To be specific what i mean is is it possible to not be in any sub type until you discover your own purpose and your own feelings, Because as of late i have realized and had thoughts about two young girls in my school of witch i seem to latch onto and do not wish them to get hurt ever or feel sad and if i was to think anything bad will happen to any of them i feel the need to do everything in my power to stop, that witch seems to put me if I am not wrong in the guardian subtype but i would also fit into the watcher/observer subtype category. So is it really possible that i never had a purpose thus never had a sub type up until now? What are your opinions on this matter

P.S. I apologize for any grammar, punctuation, or spelling mistakes in advance

Re: kin sub types {question}
First off, vampire proper is seen as more of a condition than a kintype. There are kintypes that are vampiric in nature, but vampirism isn't necessarily a kintype in and of itself. That being said, one's kintype doesn't necessarily relate to one's "purpose" in life. Yes, sometimes an occupation or hobby one chooses relates, but what we are drawn to in this life really reflects our brain chemistry, how we were raised, and our current life experiences more than anything else-and those are all human. Feeling protective of people could mean that you just fancy them. You're male so it could just be that you're an overprotective brother type. You know, the type of person who wants to protect the opposite sex.

I always tell people that their current lives, behaviors, and desires are not the place to go looking for one's kintype. Why? Because they reflect being human. Again, brain chemistry (and basic human biology in general), life experiences, and how we were raised. The place to look for 'what you are' is inside.

There's no need to rush it. The only person who puts some kind of unspoken time limit on finding out about yourself is you. So try to relax, don't rush it, and just take things as they come.

While my 'species' is draconic (or more accurately, shinoar), my purpose is Healing. They are absolutely unrelated.

I have to go with Seraphyna's answer, especially on the protecting of others. Sarah often "adopts" people that she just has the urge to protect--regardless of sex (but it usually the opposite sex). Normally it's people that just "feel" young regardless of how old they actually are. She's draconic herself and is a "protector", but is it related, but probably not.

Me, on the other hand, protect people because it's my nature--I'm a celestial who's job had been to "guard" people or animals or whatever I saw fit, lol.

I have to agree also on that you look for what you are on the inside.

XD Got it while we were puttering around putting our own answer together.

It's not just demons, either...we don't think many races are so specialized as to have job-like subtypes. Mine has broad bands that are like castes, but the fact that some of us strongly identify with the jobs we held in that lifetime reflects more on our devotion to those jobs, not on our very nature giving rise to the doing of those jobs. And while there may be cookie demons, well, that just means that some demons like them some cookies, and can you blame anyone for liking cookies? ^_-

To paraphrase Gurney Halleck, subtypes are a thing for pack animals and celestials, not for demons!

Even if a celestial was made for a job, it doesn't always mean that they keep doing it, or even like doing it. They could pick up new habits or tendencies over the years. People change.

Basically, your energy profile, your purpose in life, and your kintype are three different things. They might relate to each other or they might not. Demon is a kin type. Vampire is an energy profile (I guess, sort of made up the term on the spot.) Guardian is an occupation. Any of these could be interchanged with something else and still work.

I like the idea of energy profiles. That could be useful...perhaps to classify more than just unusual energy metabolisms. *heads off to ponder some more...*

Re: kin sub types {question}
well, before you start trying to work out what kind of demon you are you should become more certain of the meanings behind your words. What do you mean with the word "demon" for instance, because it's such a laden word with so many and Different religious connotations, not to mention the warping the word's seen in otherkin circles, it just seems less than helpful.
Secondly; Though there are Lots of otherkin who consider themselves "different" types of demon, those kintypes might not be related at all, due to the various different definitions of "demon" in the kin community.

Being highly protective of people you care about is not an indication of being a guardian. It's just an indication of being psychologically normal.
