“Animal” Roles and “Human” Roles

There are five basic types of anthropomorphic animals based on the role they play in their world.

Type 1) These anthropomorphic animals stay on all fours or otherwise keep the stance of their species. They also stay within the trappings of their species behavior-wise and play mostly or mainly “animal” roles. Some of them are speech capable, some are not.

Type 2) Like Type 1, these anthropomorphic animals stay on all fours or otherwise keep the stance of their species. However, they talk, act more like humans than Type 1, and can play a mix of “animal” and “human” roles or mostly “human” roles.

Type 3) These anthropomorphic animals talk, walk on two legs, and act like humans at least to some extent, but like Type 1, still play “animal” roles.

Type 4) These anthropomorphic animals talk, walk on two legs, and act like humans. These animals play a mix of “animal” and “human” roles.

Type 5) These anthropomorphic animals not only talk, walk on two legs, and act like humans they play mostly or mainly “human” roles as well.

“Animal” Roles: Roles animal characters play that are like the roles their species usually have in real life. (i.e., chickens living in a chicken coop, ducks living in and near a pond, rabbits living in a burrow)

“Human” Roles: Roles animal characters play that are like the roles humans usually have in real life. (i.e., having a “human” job or career, owning a house)
