Although they are (arguably) the worst-fashioned species to have survived the event, humans have a way of proving themselves to the better-equipped variants around them. They may not have any powers or abilities, but perhaps that’s what makes them even more intimidating; they thrive in a world where all the odds are against them using only their grit. Some may choose to leave behind their mundane lives for those of the other variants, but most choose to tough it out, teaching the ways of their ancestors to the new generation.
The eldest and most established of the variants, vampires have seen the birth and death of nations. They alone are the protectors of the secrets of the world, passing them on to only their most trusted companions. It is a common theme for the vampires to view themselves as the rightful heirs to everything that has blossomed around them [read: they tend to have major superiority complexes]. Do not let them coerce you into joining their cult; once in, there is no way out.
Possibly the most unpredictable variant of them all, shifters tend to stick to their own kind, should they be lucky enough to find them. Most have learned how to blend in with the humans and remain unseen, making it difficult for them to group with other shifters. Divides within the group have always existed; subspecies tends to define unspoken laws within the shifter community. They’re often seen with elementals or humans, but rarely (if ever) with other variants.
From fire to ice, soil to air, elementals make up the second most diverse variant group. They tend to be the most social of the variants, though this is a major generalization. Some of the elementals love to communicate outside of their group, while others [read: fire elementals] prefer to stick to themselves. While they aren’t always given the credit that they deserve, elementals may be the most powerful variant, having been gifted with the ability to control the uncontrollable.
