"The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. " » Storyline Some years in the future, a new species of human has evolved. But only twelve of them. They are the "Zodias," for each of them possess characteristics of one of the twelve Greek zodiac signs. Aquarius. The Water-Bearer. Independence is vital to this individual. Any sort of commitment will make them run away. Pisces. The Fish. This individual had a scarring past and though they are kind and compassionate, they can fall into pits of despair. Aries. The Ram. A strong, athletic individual, bossy yet charming and charismatic. Not afraid to get down and dirty. Taurus. The Bull. Stubbornness is their strength and flaw, yet they work hard when it matters. Gemini. The Twins. An individual with mood swings like fire and ice. Some say unstable. Others say dual personalities are at war. Cancer. The Crab. Quiet and small, yet not to be underestimated. Packs more power than most. Leo. The Lion. Courageous, outspoken, a true believer in what is right. If chivalry is alive, then this is it. Virgo. The Maiden. Pure, kind, quiet, but also naive to the ways of this corrupted world. Libra. The Scales. The law is their Bible and justice is their gospel. They are blind, preferring to see the world through the mind's eye. Scorpio. The Scorpion. A dangerous, backstabbing individual, but devoted and loyal to those they love. Sagittarius. The Archer. Instincts are their only code. They serve no master but themselves. Capricorn. The Aquaiga (The Sea-Goat). A strange but brilliant swimmer, but requires crutches on land. Terribly shy. These 12 individuals are what the current human scientists believe to be the future humans. That this new species of human, Homo zodias, is the species that will one day take over the world and replace Homo sapiens. So, these scientists have done what they can to limit and kill off these individuals. The project name: Zodiabolical. Truthfully, perhaps they are justified in killing off this new species, at least before the new species kills them. The Zodias are all endowed with remarkable strength and speed, as well as mental abilities that can overpower the weapons and technology of normal humans. In addition to this, each Zodias has their own special powers, unique to their Sign. Abilities common to all Zodias: Strength - lift half a ton Speed - speeds of up to 80 mph Fast metabolism Telekinesis (ability to manipulate objects with the mind) Fast healing (4x speed of humans, though they cannot regenerate) Mental shielding Enhanced hearing and sight However, the Zodias are not on their own. 3 have been found by the scientists, 2 of which have already been killed off. The Virgo Zodias remains in suspended animation, poked and prodded by scientists deep in an underground laboratory, their genetic code analyzed over and over again in hopes of creating a chemical weapon to wipe out the new species. 9 remain free, blending into society, for their physical aspects are those of normal humans. Their powers, however, are a different story. The 9 that remain alive and at large: Aquarius Pisces Aries Gemini Leo Libra Scorpio Sagittarius Capricorn They fight to keep their identities secret. The fight to find each other, for none of them have any idea where the others could be. They fight to keep living. Each day, they curse humanity, for what other animal would so easily kill their own?
