In this world, there is a constant struggle between different races of human beings; The Specials and The Society. Beings of this world are made possible by the earth’s energy (or alma), which instead of being an idea- is an actual tangible resource. What makes Specials and Society members different are the amounts of vigor they have in their body. The more alma your person has, the more likely that something about your senses, strength, and/or perception will be enhanced. This leads to inhuman abilities- such as teleportation, super hearing, super strength etc… Specials are the people with these abilities, while Society members lack any special enhancements. The only way to become a special is by birth, (it’s a passed down trait- so is each individual enhancement. Ex.if a father has super strength and the mother has the power to heal- the baby has a 50% chance of inheriting either of those powers. There’s also a 10& chance they will inherit both, but with weakened results.) or by injections of alma; but there’s a likely chance of death.
