In the summer of 1963, a strange event had occurred that changed the face of the world: Delta-Storm. It was a meteorological storm where variously colored crystals fell from the sky that radiated with energy (Known as Delta-Point Energy), and when certain people were exposed to them they gained fantastical abilities. Yellow crystals would grant physical powers, Red crystals would grant elemental, blue gifted mental powers, and white granted abilities that were dimensional - however, there are cases where people have been exposed to several different types of energy. After the initial chaos ensued, these beings were named Deltahumans and became a normal part of society. Fast forward to present times, Deltahumans are moderated by the Federal Agency for Metahuman Affairs who goes after hostile Deltahumans. However, Deltahumans are a hot topic that are preyed upon by many... and in some cases, they are the predator.

.....................................................................
Deltahumans (Their previous term was Metahumans) are humans that were exposed to the Delta-Point Energy, or a Delta-Crystal, and had undergone a Manifestation Event. These Deltahumans have gained abilities that defy the laws of nature, men with super-strength, children that can control ice, and women that can teleport are the tip of the iceberg. This manifestation event only occurs after a human being has developed a sufficient amount of Delta-Point energy within their body.

The rate which this energy develops depends on how much a person is exposed to (Codenamed their Exposure Event) and if a person touches a crystal for a prolonged amount of time their energy will develop at a much faster rate than somebody who was briefly exposed. In a lot of cases, exposure to this energy will not cause a manifestation to occur, but 15% of humans are compatible with the energy and can manifest a power. It's unknown what causes a person to manifest as anyone of any sex, of any gender, is capable of manifesting, it's widely believed to be just chance.

After many of them were covered, destroyed, or drained of all of their energy, it's fairly difficult to get exposed to the crystals and most are exposed to it by other Deltahumans. There are two ways to manifest: Naturally, or Under High-Stress. If manifesting naturally, it can take over years for a Deltahuman to manifest their powers. There seems to be a correlation between high-stress situations and the rapid growth of powers as many Deltahumans who manifested.
Upon manifesting the Delta-Point Energy will completely flow within a person's being from their skin, all the way to their bones. It is normally invisible to the regular human eye, but when a Deltahuman is straining themselves or using their power a great deal, their energy will show. When a Deltahuman use their power on the outside world, a small amount of the meta-human energy gets projected and focused in that area. Such as a Water-Elemental controlling a cup of water will get some of the energy projected into it, allowing them to manipulate the water inside of it until they cease to control and the energy returns to their body. However, this still leaves the energy in the area and can possibly cause others to manifest who are compatible.

There are four types of Delta-Crystals/Delta-Point Energy that exist in the world: Type-Yellow (for those that have developed physical powers), Type-Red (for those who have gained an ability that pertains to manipulating the environment), Type-Blue (For those who have manifested a mental ability of some kind), Type-Green (for those who can alter the properties of other powers), and Type-White (those that have powers that don't fit the other categories). Depending on what kind of energy somebody is exposed to will dictate which type of power a Deltahuman will develop.

From either gaining the ability to manipulate the earth when exposed to red energy, read minds with Blue energy and so on. However, it's possible for these categories to blend together as it's also possible to get exposed to multiple different types of energy and will end up with a power that spans multiple categories. This is a rare type of Deltahuman but these kinds of Deltahumans are known as Type-Chromatic.

There is such a thing as powers being hereditary, but it is very rare within the Deltahuman communities. When Deltahumans have children, that child has a 95% higher chance to manifest an ability than anybody else. This is because, when a child is in the womb, the child is bathed with the energy and will grow and develop a similar power to their parents. However, the child will always take after the mother power-wise as they will be exposed to maternal energy more than paternal energy. This is why, if only one parent is a Deltahuman, it's far more likely that the child will manifest if the mother possesses the powers.

Even if the power is hereditary, the power will be different in certain ways, as nobody has the same one power. If the parents of a Deltahuman are different types, there is a higher chance that the child will end up being a Type-Chromatic. Deltahumans have a very particular effect attached to them: the Black Fall Effect. This has two main effects on the Deltahuman population: firstly, all Deltahumans are subconsciously attracted to each other whether they want to or not. So subtly that it's next to impossible to even notice. It causes the shyest people to head out and interact or draws Deltahuman to one location. The more Deltahumans that are around, the more intense this "flocking" effect will get.
TYPES
_______________________________________________

.............................................................................
Deltahumans have an interesting relationship with the Delta-Crystals, as when in contact with a Delta-Crystal, a Deltahuman receives a boost to their power as long as they remain in contact. This boost depends on which type of crystal a Deltahuman is holding - as if they are a Type-Red holding a Type-Yellow, it'd be an incredibly minor boost to their ability. However, if the crystals are compatible, it'd be an insane upgrade to their powers. With one Deltahuman being capable of doing city-changing feats while in contact with a crystal. Though, it will be an insane strain on the Deltahuman and will increase their risk for ashing. However, while powers are truly incredible, they come at a price, powers have a toll on the body and mind. Excessive and unrestrained use would cause what could be described as physical overexertion, and the Deltahuman body gets strained from overuse. Pushing powers beyond their limits in high-stress situations cause even worse problems, and at it's most extreme, it may cause an effect known as "Ashing". This is basically an extremely deadly ailment where a Deltahuman self-destructs, and their powers shut off, and all their cells will die at an alarmingly fast rate.

Their cells will literally drop off their body like specs of ash, and this process will continue until there is absolutely nothing left of a Deltahuman. This state is extremely deadly, and there's a mere 4% chance of survival - Even if an ashing victim does survive, there are some permanent physical damage (Amputation, Brain damage, loss of powers, etc, etc - Are a few to note) so it's considered a fate worse than death. Ashing is what Deltahumans truly fear, as any Deltahuman can ash if they are not careful. It's possible for regular humans to ash if exposed to large amounts of Delta-Point Energy, and they are among the few that don't or can't manifest a power. This will largely occur if a person is in prolonged contact with the Delta-Point energy as it would take a large amount of energy for this to be possible. However, this can occur with the smallest amount of Delta-Point energy, and anyone who's not capable of manifesting can die from ashing.

There's also a second, more horrific side effect of Deltahumans that requires a section of its own.

Through the study of the crystals and the Delta-Point energy, there has been technology developed from them. They were noted to be a very potent energy source, and the energy can be harnessed in different ways. Most notably, by studying the energy, many organizations have created devices that can detect the energy within people and the crystals in the wild. Of course, these devices are considered to be a huge violation of privacy and are rarely employed. Then there are the simple Suppressant-Collars which are metal devices made to be wrapped around somebody's neck that completely disables the usage of activation powers - for those whose powers are permanent changes, they have no effect on them. On the more insidious side, a shady organization has figured out means to give people powers: Serums. These serums are full of a glowing green liquid that infuses a person's body with the Deltahuman energy and after the process is complete, they'll gain a superpower that corresponds with the color of the energy. These serums are usually sold to the highest bidder but are only capable of being purchased by those with a hefty chunk of change, but some people are just given the serums. It's unknown where these serums are coming from, or who are making them, but authorities are doing their best to find out.

In the summers of 1963, there was a sudden and abrupt meteor shower that wrought havoc over the skies of Earth, spreading bizarre crystals across the world wherever their debris made landfall. These crystals were infused with strange radiation that would "infect" living beings that either came in contact with the crystals themselves or were in proximity and got infected with the crystal's energy. This gave rise to the "First Generation" of Deltahumans as the first of few individuals with such abilities found their place in the world. While this first generation proved to be relative unknowns, rumors, or bogeymen to all but a handful of informed figures, their presence in the world would gradually increase over the coming decades, eventually causing mass hysteria as rumors were proven true and sightings impossible to cover up. By the 1980s, this had led to waves of rioting, protests, and even mass displays of religious fervor as the public digested the knowledge of their existence in various ways. Eventually, the governments of the world attempted to manage their Deltahuman populations through regulation and incorporation into newly established government agencies, but even so great unrest had and still continues to persist even to the modern-day. This manifestation of Deltahumans would eventually be known as the Delta-Storm and many theorize that it has happened before, and could happen again. After Delta-Storm, almost all the crystals were taken into government custody, but a few remained at large and it is theorized that they're growing in number.
