Simic Hybrids are humanoids that have used magic to fuse with another creature. This gives humanoids various abilities depending on the trait of the animal they fuse with. Common enhancements are water breathing, extra limbs, or tougher skin.
Since Simic Hybrids are made and not born they don’t necessarily have a community in a shared race. In the Ravnica campaign setting the Simic Hybrids are almost always a part of the Simic Combine guild, hence the name. However, this race could still exist in other settings but may feel even more isolated due to the magical circumstances they are made in.
Many Simic Hybrids will keep their names that they were born with. Many begin as Humans, Elves, or Vedalken, but other non-animal humanoid races could be used as a Simic Hybrid base. Some people may choose a new name once they have become a Simic Hybrid, this article focuses on those names.
