The year is 2185, and the whole world held its breath. They were on what they thought was the brink of WWIII, and while each country had sworn that, if war broke out, they would not use nuclear weaponry. However, the USA wanted a secret weapon to get them ahead. And so, without consulting the UN or telling anyone what they were doing, the US government secretly began developing a new drug which, when injected into the spine, would give that person unique powers that people had only imagined before. They called the drug N01 when it was finally complete. They gathered a group of 50 orphaned infants, and gave them each an injection.
What happened was far greater then anything the scientists had expected. Each infant's body reacted differently to N01, causing each to develop unique powers. No infant had the same ability as another. One baby could(and would) burn anyone or anything that touched him. Another could disappear at will. Still others showed no signs of change, but after numerous tests the scientists concluded that these children had talents they did not know how to use them, such as mind-reading.
The government kept the children hidden for several months, nurturing them and helping them to grow strong and healthy, waiting for the time when they would be old enough to go to war.
But the war did not come. Instead, a fair decision was made. The whole world could breath again.
Inside the government labs, the now one year old babies continued growing, their talents becoming even stronger and more remarkable. The scientists had a decision to make. Now that war was no longer expected, what were they to do with the babies? They did not want to keep the children in the labs any longer than necessary, (A group of 50 normal toddlers is no picnic, much less 50 children with special abilities.) but they also did not want children who burnt anything they touched running rampant about the country. So they developed a new drug to counteract the first, N02, rendering their powers useless. After watching the children for signs of their powers returning, and making certain that they didn't, the scientists released the children into the adoption system, no one being the wiser.
What the scientists did not know was that the new drug did not completely undo the effects of N01. Instead, it simply suppressed the powers, and the chemicals lay dormant. The children grew up with no knowledge of their powers. Many of them had children of their own. Chemicals from both drugs remained in the children of the original 50. But the chemicals of N02 faded a little with each new generation, while the chemicals of N01 stayed just as present.
By the fifth generation of children, N02 had completely worn off. They had normal childhoods, growing like any other child would. But at puberty, instead of simply going through normal pubescent weirdness, they discovered their powers. And people were afraid. The teens became the center of talk around both the country and the world. Because no one alive knew what they were, or why they were like that, people feared them. Some newspapers claimed that they “craved blood.” Even the government, who knew what had happened and what they were, was afraid. They worried that this new breed might incite WWIII, something they did not want.
So they decided to take action. Because they knew that N02 was not a permanent fix for the problem, the government decided to simply kill them before they could reproduce. But instead of killing them outright, which would make people mad, the government sent the teens to a camp called Woodhedge, which was similar to the concentration camps of WWII. The teens were made to wear handcuffs infused with N02, which suppressed their powers just like the injection did. They were then made to work in dangerous conditions, for no pay.
The teens were living in a place full of darkness, and hatred. They had done nothing, yet they were treated like criminals. And no matter what anyone said, hope was what they craved...

Name- Bri (pronounced bree) Aran Easterly
Appearance- Bri has silky black hair that's red at the ends down to her hips, and bangs that sometimes fall into her eyes(the tips of her bangs are also red). Her lips average sized, but they are a dark red that is unnatural. Her eyes are big, and fiery red, rimmed with thick black lashes. Her skin is ever so lightly tanned. She is 5'6'', and underfed.
Personality- Bri is slightly outspoken. She tells you what she thinks without beating around the bush. She has a dry sense of humor, and is very sarcastic. She doesn't like to follow orders without putting up a fight, which has gotten her into trouble many times at Woodhedge.
Bio- Bri grew up in a very rich family, all of her desires being catered to. She first discovered her powers when she was 14. At first it was no big deal. All she could do was sense heat around her. But then, her powers became more dangerous, and she could not control them. She began burning anything she touched, and the heat overwhelmed her. Her family believed the government propoganda stating the Woodhedge was a delightful refuge for people with powers, and so they sent her there intentionally(she was not escorted there by the police).
Special ability- Bri can feel heat around her, and her body takes it in and heats her up without her meaning to. She can set fire to something just by touching it, but she cannot set fire to things for long distance.

It was extremely painful for her, and still is, because she misses the UK and her dad, but she tries to push past it.
