Xanth's Children are the races created during Xanth's experiments in the early days of Xanthian lore, back before Elysia? was even a twinkle in the Creator's eye.

According to myth, she made them by crossing human DNA with birds, bats, and elementals.

The Vampires and Therians, on the other hand, were an accident when she attempted Her first resurrection.

Many Elysians, and especially followers of the Voice of Xanth, consider themselves Her children regardless of their genetic origins. Strictly speaking, however, Humans and the Dracovari are not.
