Were there metasapients before SURGE?  I only own 5e books and am not familiar enough with canon.  Did SURGE bring the metasapients or were they around before?

First spike baby born in 1998.  So not counting assorted "immortals" from previous ages the oldest Metahuman is 75ish.

2011 is the the first "baby boom" of UGE births so 60ish year old Metahumans are not uncommon.

2021 10% of the global population spontaneously goblinizes.  So 50ish year old Metahumans are about as common as metahumans in general.

Metasapients came with the Awakening, not with SURGE.  As Hobbes pointed out Metahumanity predates even the Awakening.

Changelings are mostly from SURGE but I believe there were isolated incidents before the passing of Haley's.

AFB at the moment but I'll post again later with details I can dig up.

Yetis, a metaspient species, were discovered in 2011.

Naga appear in 2013.  Dragons were first sighted in 2011.  It's likely other Metasapients would start appearing around then.  So 50 to 60 years old would not be unlikely. 

Basically after about 2021 any species could be around somewhere.

What Hobbes wrote was about Metahumanity ;)
Metasapients are Drakes,Nagas,Kentaur, Pixies. and Shapeshifter
Intelligent Creatures which do not stem from Humanity.
They appeared in Shadowrun when the Magic returned in 2011

From Run Faster Pg. 99:
The Fifth-World legends of Bigfoot were true. Either
sasquatches were born before the Awakening or they
are just a long-lived race able to hide for millennia.
