I wasn't planning on having humans in my fantasy novel. All of the races were going to be unique or have special abilities. The race closest to being human is the Laina race. They look human but I intended to give them the ability of psychometry - being able to see the history or past of an object by physical contact of said object. It felt right to use at first, as this ability would definitely come in handy later on in my novel, especially since my main character is a Laina, and it would even be interesting to use in my sequel that I'm currently planning. Although, I have not made use of psychometry in my story yet, and I haven't found a way to go about implementing it casually into the story. Another race, predominant in the colder regions of the fantasy world, are the Mimics. They are greatly influenced and in touch with animals. They believe each person has their own beast that is their "spirit animal" with whom they connect with the most, though all Mimics connect very well with any animal. Their eyes are a pure, very light blue, almost white. I wanted to make them able to see like other animals might. Example, heightened sense of smell and hearing, and can see and smell trails of animals or people. I was going to make them either blind, or color blind. One of the main characters, a young orphan girl, teams up with the main character and a few others. For the most part, I imagined her to be staring off in front of her as if she couldn't blink, only picking up a handful of dirt and smelling the scent to point them in the right direction. But if I make the race blind, they would rely on only sound, scent, touch, and noise. Any ideas on which would work better?
