History has called them demi-gods, witches, sorcerers, and aberrations. Today, science calls them Genetians; humans born with seemingly supernatural abilities as much a part of their DNA as the color of their eyes. Since the dawn of time they have been here, helping to shape the course of humanity and living openly among them.

Tensions in the United States steadied until ten-year-old pyrokinetic Nathan DiSario obeyed his inner demon and assaulted his classmates. While the nation grappled with the implications, Nathan was quietly hidden away.
