The epidemic began around five years ago, but the recognition of Gradients has been going on beneath the radar for about five decades. Since the need for Gradients arose in the past 5 years blood tests have been routinely performed at birthHow Do Gradients Come About?
Gradience is genetic but the result of several recessive genes - Gradience or normalcy in the parents does not guarantee the same in the childWhat Is Their “Gradient”?
Their ‘Gradient’ is present in the form of an aura that shows when employing their abilities, rather than through hair, eye colour etc. as well as the colour that their particular ability manifests itself in. It ranges in brightness depending on their emotional state.What Powers Can I Choose?
Think carefully about their powers, and what limits you can put in place to stop them being too over the top - do what you want to do first, just make sure to moderate it. Remember that without their enhancers a Gradient’s ability is very reducedAnd What About Enhancers?
Enhancers are only
assigned after reaching General Treatment
, or Tier 2. The minimum stay in Tier 1 is seven days, the minimum stay in Tier 2 is three months. The enhancer should be something suited to your Gradient not only in a practical sense but also in a personal one - be creative.Life In The Acropolis
Due to the nature of their work most Gradients don’t outlive their 30s. Once in the Acropolis the gradients have no contact with the outside world until they are fully trained for the field. When the gradients go out they are required to wear armbands marking them as part of the Acropolis
Sexuality isn’t much of an issue, but sex itself amongst the Gradients in the Acropolis is forbidden
Non-Gradients that are born in the Acropolis are put into the state care system.
