Twokinds is a webcomic created by Tom Fischbach. It was released on October 22, 2003. After originally writing a book, Tom decided to make Twokinds into a webcomic instead because it was a more accessible format to him. The inspiration for the comic was primarily racial discrimination Tom had experienced in his school since the majority of the students were white.
"After losing his memory to a mysterious battle, Trace Legacy, a former leader for an organization of mages called the Templar, finds himself in the company of Flora, a girl of strange, tiger-like qualities. As Trace gradually begins to re-learn what he once knew, he soon discovers that Flora belongs to a race of people who are enemies of his kind. As friendship connects with racial differences, Trace and Flora find themselves in a situation more critical than either of them can imagine."
- Main article: Mekkan
Twokinds is set in the world of Mekkan.
"Twokinds is a webcomic that takes place in a world conflicted with racial tension, primarily between the human-like Humans and animal-like Keidran. They have dramatically different societies and ideas on how to live and act. It is because of these differences that the two races are almost always in some form of conflict. The story begins as the world hinges on the brink of another war. However, unlike before, this time war seems to be the result of a single man, manipulating the two races for his own personal gain - though he no longer has any memory of doing so."
