AGYN History P2: EmergenceHumanity lived underground for nearly 200 years; at that point, the bunker supplies ran out. During that time, they had no idea what sort of transformations had begun outside the bunkers. While it was true that many people perished as a result of the nuclear fallout, it had also sped up evolution in the most intriguing way possible.
So when humanity finally came out of the underground bunkers, they found that their place in the food chain had been taken by humanoid “mutants” that had been born as a result of the radiation in the atmosphere. They found that these mutants had essentially rebuilt America from the ground up, creating large cities and a variety of technologies that were present before the war. The mutants, for the most part, seemed welcoming of the humans, and began to work together with them.
By 2285, three large cities had been formed as a result of human and mutant co-operation; Akarui to the east, Kiseki in the west, and Yoru in the s
Species Information: Earth MagesSpecies Name: Homo sapiens cantatio terra
Common Name: Earth Mage
Species Type: Magic Class
Physical Traits: Earth Mages are humanoid in appearance, with dark brown skin that feels hard to touch. They often have a dark green grass growing on their head and shoulders, however they may also grow other various plants on their body. Their skin tends to have a cracked appearance, like hardened dirt.
Build: Variable, however most Earth Mages are not of particularly strong build.
Eyes: Most Earth Mages have brown eyes, however the shade varies. Very rarely, an Earth Mage may have green eyes; this is seen as a particularly attractive trait to other Earth Mages.
Hair: While some Earth Mages will grow dark brown hair, most Earth Mages grow grass on their head and shoulders in place of actual hair. This grass can be smoked, and doing so gives a high similar to that experienced while using cannabis.
Species Information: AvemSpecies Name: Undefined
Common Name: Avem
Species Type: Hybrid Class
Rarity: Very rare
Physical Traits: Avem are like Avians in that both species are bird-human hybrids; however, Avem look a lot more like birds than the Avians do. Their entire body is covered in colourful plumage, and their hands and feet end in talons rather than human hands. Their hands are structured like human hands except with a scaly feel and talons at the tips; their feet are more like bird feet, with three toes and a dewclaw at the back. Their feet are very powerful, allowing them to carry heavy objects while flying by holding them in their talons. Their wings are separate from their arms, connecting to their back via a double socket in their shoulder blades.
Build: Like Avians, Avem typically have good upper body strength in order to fly. However Avem are more variable in terms of build types, typically resembling the
Species Information: Air MagesSpecies Name: Homo sapiens cantatio ventra
Common Name: Air Mage
Species Type: Magic Class
Rarity: Very rare; almost extinct
Physical Traits: Air Mages are entirely humanoid in appearance with no outstandingly unusual features.
Build: Air Mages are typically lean in build, however it varies.
Eyes: Any natural colour that could occur on a human is possible, however shades of blue are by far the most common.
Hair: All Air Mages have white or very light grey hair.
Type Relevant: All Air Mages have the ability to control wind, and create it when required. As an additional bonus, they have the ability to "fly" by using air currents in order to lift themselves off the ground. They can also use their power offensively, creating strong air currents to slice at or push around their foes, or defensively, creating a whirlwind around themselves to deflect attacks.
Species Information: CacticeansSpecies Name: Homo sapiens cactacea
Common Name: Cactus People or Cacticeans
Species Type: Hybrid Class
Physical Traits: Cacticeans look humanoid for the most part, however have thick green skin and small barbed spines extending from all over their body. These spines act like wasp stingers, dislodging into the victim on contact without injuring the Cacticean; within a few hours the spines will grow back. They lack spines on the hands, face and soles of their feet however. When a Cacticean becomes ready to mate, flowers bloom around their head, neck and shoulder area.
Being part plant, Cacticeans are able to photosynthesize in order to gain nutrients. They can also go long periods without drinking, with a healthy adult Cacticean able to survive up to two weeks with no water. They don't tend to do either of these though, as they put a lot of stress on their body.
