Sapiency = Animals?

So are sapients still considered animals? I think so, but I like others thoughts, or actual clarity from the creators of the game. Thank you.

Do you refer to Beastmen or to Sapients in general? Biologically, the human being is an animal, a mammal. Morally and philosophically, we claim a higher state of being than other animals.

Beastmen in Victoriana are not any more animals than other Sapients are. They are, as 3rd edition makes rather clear, I think, part of the human species and procreate with any other form of human beings.

So, a Ratman is part of the species Homo sapiens, not part of the rat species.

In general, is what I was thinking.
