Insect Wylderkin

If the local chapter says it's cool, go for it. The idea that a raptor-kin breaks the 4th wall more than a 16 year old kid in a tabbard and make-up portraying a giant ice troll or a fierce hated opponent asking what spell you just hit him with is a little silly. Everyone has their own style and opinion of what is the proper way to play. I mean, we have character costumes from literally hundreds of years of history all mashing up in one time period. At any given event you can see a samurai, pirate, knight, Victorian noble and cave man hanging out in a light bulb lit tavern.

Heck, it's coded into the IG laws in some chapters. You know, specifically defining which races are legally people, and hence which death is murder and which is a community service.

Sentient Beings – Sentient Beings are legally defined as a member of the following races and no others – Human, Barbarian, Gypsies, High Orcs, High Ogres, Biata, Stone Elves, Sarr, Wylderkyn, Hoblings, Dryads, Dark Elves, and Mystic Wood Elves.
Just so this doesn't get taken out of context in this forum, this in-game law came about directly due to in-game actions of players. Within the local in-game context, it makes a lot of sense.

^That's almost entirely cheesing the rules and I'd call out players for doing that.

¿Why is it cheezing? The character can make up any crazy story about their history they want. The "Unicorn" will still be statted as a Narwhal-Kin and their card will say "Wylderkin", but they can tell people anything they want. Kin are pretty much "the School of Anything Goes", there are very few limits on what you can play. Couple a fun costume with a seriously deranged mentality (or a clever backstory - Ritual Flaw's are always good) and the sky's the limit.
