need a bit help with an Elf species I am making.
I am thinking about making them family with fairies who is in my world; some type of dragonfly. of course, I have no idea this is possible.
My Elf almost looks like what most people see as 'Elves'but I did make them with weaker bones and is an ancestor of the Angels which technically makes them Nephilims who later evolved naturally into the common elf we all know and this is my reason why they can do magic and is near immortal. I do need help with the other side of the family tree, the none-Angel side.
do you think it is possible for a dragonfly or other type of insect (spiders/scorpions, butterfly, wasp, etc) to evolve into a 'caveman' elf who looked just human enough to have kids with the Angels? is it even possible for an insect to look like a humanoid race or do I need to look into other species of animals to make the elf family/species tree?
don't know if you need more info than this. I will add more if asked.
EDIT: I think I need to add this since it has come up a few times.
the Angel in my world is based after the Biblical angels and yet have their own twist. they work for a higher entity. the history my sister and I made to them are not important to this question.
Angels/Fallen are not made neutrally. they are experiments solely created to serve. Angel cannot reproduce with each other since they are sexless.
how do angels then have kids? Since they are created by a god-like creature, they do have the power to bend the logic to a certain point. right now my sister and I are talking about they created Nephilim by giving a small part of themselves(Magic, blood, or a kiss maybe?) to women, and poof! she is pregnant with a half-angel child. we kinda got the idea of the famous virgin birth of Mary.
- the angel of my world is called Natoque. see it as a species name. the name "angel" and "demon/fallen" is something there came after the rebellion and they are still the same species. just parted into two nations.
- I'm trying to make the family tree of the Elf race as scientific as possible so they have evolved naturally to the species who later get kids with the angel species. I don't hold the same standard to the Angel species due to them being created by other forces.
- How can Angels have kids with humans/Elves who is outside their genus. when it comes to the Angels; nearly everything is possible and that is why I am not that concerned about them or the logic behind them.
if there is more thing I should add, please tell me.
Edit 3: so after some links and answers, I've gotten I concluded that it might not be the best idea to make the Elf in a family with insects due to their anatomy. although I am still not sure what species I should link them to. the User named @Daron did say this best;
"I think now is a good time to start a new question, that includes all the stuff we talked about here, and probably doesn't mention angels at all, since everything to do with the angels can be explained by magic. All in all, it's not clear what you're asking for to me, and the main problem seems to be "how can we have tiny flying sentient humanoids?"
if you are still willing to help me out with this, I appreciated it. and thank you for you who helped me out this far. I am still looking for the answers but I am glad for the information I have at the moment.
- was asked for more info on the fairies and the Angels, but since the Fairies are out of the family tree and the Angels are not that important in my search due to they came into the family tree later in what I'm searching for.
