set in a world where the human race has evolved into something more inhuman, the SCMN33-gene caused humans to develop in unnatural ways, developing unnatural abilities. Humans are turning into monsters; folktales are becoming all too real.
Monsters are shunned, ostracized, and barely feared. Everyone is out for monster blood. It is a part of the culture. If you’re old enough to skip stones across ponds, you’re at the age that you can chuck that stone in the face of a monster. If a child were to show monster-like abilities, they are required to take The Monster Evaluation to see if they can live in the civilized world with their oddities or without their emotions.
Follow Otillia Shield, Pluto Zero, and Margo Morté, some monster-kids?— creature-people?— whatever they are, as they trek the world, trying to fix something. But they cannot hope to do anything alone. They will find others like them, an entire society of hidden monsters just like them, in a safe haven. Maybe Otillia could learn to hope in a better world... a less bloody, restricting world, a world that remembers its previous humanity.
A meek-hearted girl who, influenced by the abuse of her parents and peers, hates her monster nature and tries to hide it. When it proves to be difficult to hide the fact that she sheds out lightning, she decides that maybe… just maybe she can use her ability for something… not-so-monsterly.
A justice-obsessed boy with ghostly abilities who is done with society and decides to dole out punishments his own way… if he can get over his fear of bullies.
