Kin is the general term for the dominant race on Meridian in toto, rather than referring to any specific culture in particular. This term became popular with scholars after many different cultural uses of “human” became too confusing across eras of writing. For example, most modern Imperials would use the word “human” only to describe Imperial citizens, Nobles, Hundr, etc, but not for members of the Hob Tradition – and similarly so for the Hobs. Hundr frequently only use the term “human” for themselves in private writings. And this is all in the clear presence of evidence that all these groups can interbreed.
