The King Of Wishes
The Traits Heroic are what separate the common man from Heroes and Villains. Children with the Traits are constantly sought after by both the International Guild of Heroes and the Brotherhood of the Black Hand to increase membership in their respective organizations.
Children, or undiscovered adults, once found out, are not given the option to remain a Neutral Faction. If the Guild finds them first, they are often taken into custody until they have decided what they will do, and in extreme cases, sometimes coerced into joining the Guild. If the Brotherhood finds them first, and they insist on either joining the Guild or remaining neutral, they are quite often tortured into submission or slain outright.
The Traits manifest in several ways. They can be incredible strength, speed, or toughness, or an uncanny aptitude for magic. No matter what Trait an individual has, there is no special weakness to them, as Heroes tend to be better at even the things they are worst at than the common man at his best. Heroes are simply more powerful in every way. Unfortunately for the general populace, Villains function in the exact same way.
