human, not

We have  werewolves and other shapeshifters, and the heroine -- I know her -- is going to contemplate the others.  The dragons, the trolls -- if I put 'em in, the mermaids --

These are human in origin; these are, if human in origin, not in a manner discernible by a human merely studying them.

And am I going to throw in some critters that are magical but not intelligent?

Hmmm. . . .

Might throw in a character about how a human can change permanently, and that has consequences.  Might not.  Will have to consider whether it works to leave the question hanging. . . .
