Unbeknownst to most of the world, Jews, cripples, and mentally disabled people weren’t the only ones thrown into the concentration camps during the holocaust. Super-powered humans were being thrown there as well, to be experimented on and then eliminated.
Super Humans have been among us for the past 150 years. There used to be only a handful. By 1940 there were little over 150,000 but those numbers dropped drastically during the holocaust and for some reason have stayed under 20,000 out of 6 billion. The theory is that there is an organization out there with the sole purpose of exterminating every Super Human from the face of the earth.
Wehren, meaning to fight back or resist in German, was founded in 1942 (71 years ago) in Germany when the holocaust began. Its purpose was to find and protect the few Super Humans that were left, hiding around the world.
You are one of these Super Humans. Your genes have evolved giving you unexplainable abilities. Most powers are like the ones people read about in comics or see in the movies every day. Some are unique, unimaginable and/or terrifying. All come with a negative side effect. (With every power...there is a down side. I.E. Enhanced speed could lead to an extremely fast metabolism forcing the person to eat every few minutes. Or the ability to turn invisible could lead to the person slowly becoming transparent permanently.)
You’ve lived with your power and it’s side effect all your life. Typically people with your abilities stay hidden because whenever one your kind shows himself to the rest the world…he disappears. Forever.
You live in Fairview, California. Which consists of approximately 163,000 people. There have been many sightings of strange men and women in black suits over the past month. It’s possible you’ve seen them yourself once or twice. Rumor has it they’re just working for the government or maybe filming a movie. Your instincts tell you different. The occurrences of kidnappings, unusual deaths and unexplained disappearances have been on the rise as well.
The date is August 20th, 2013. At 10:30 in the morning. You’re going about your daily life, possibly as a high school student, maybe a soccer mom, or just an adult taking a class at Simpson University. Little do you know your life is soon about to change.
Abilities and their Side effects: (If you prefer to reveal these throughout the course of the story just pm them to me and take them out when you post your CS)
Occupation/Name of School:
Whose interested? I'd like to see at least 6 Character Sheets before I post this officially.
