I just realized that the Mirage continuity , who were born in-story in 1970, turn 50 years old this year, 2020.

You see, now we have many subcategories for Category:Characters by species, and to some degree these are taxonomically subdivided into different families of animals, but we currently strike a balance: If it's a grouping most people with a mainstream education have never heard of and aren't likely to search for, then we don't make a category for it.

In each of these cases, neither of the split categories is a parent category nor subcategory of their counterpart, but they link to each other with a "See also:" message at the top of the category page.
