The Type-III Awakening Incident was a massive event in the mid-1980s which resulted in the appearance of barely understood and highly varied abilities, heralding an era of uncertainty due to hundreds of powered individuals appearing that were able to bend the laws of reality, dubbed 'reality warpers' and more recently, parahumans.

Though most parahumans were peaceful, many quickly turned to violence and used their newfound powers to wreak havoc globally, catching goverments globally by surprise.

Militaries were mobilized to contain and neutralize the threats, but were spread too thin and were less than effective against these gifted beings.

Background

Before the rise of Type-III metahumans, the only known humans with supernatural capabilities were wizards, otherwise known as 'Type-II" to distinguish them from non-powered humans. The first manifestation of a Type-III human was recorded in 1983, two years before the mass-awakening incident. Despite being a scientific and magical curiosity, at the time this individual, known as Paradigm, was regarded as a mere anomaly and not a herald foreshadowing the shape of things to come.

History

Historians place the start of the uprising during the year 1985.

. . .

These new individuals were classified as "Type-III" on the Metahuman Index, due to their powers being neither grounded in the super-science and technology of Type-I, nor the semi-understood but still limited Type-II identified magical community.

Aftermath

Organizations such as the Advanced Extranormal Containment and Investigation Force were founded by the United Nations shortly after the Awakening Incident to prevent possible catastrophic incidents resulting from the proliferation of reality-warping powers. Actions to protect their nations and citizens included heavy regulation, registration and cataloguing of known Type-III individuals.

The United States of America in particular quickly passed legislation to outlaw all Type-III activity not authorized by United Liberators Coalition and implemented severe penalties for violations. The USA however did not sign the following UN treaty created in 1991.

Legacy

The Citadel-class Aerial Battleship was constructed in response to the metahuman uprising, utilizing Areum-enhanced technology with the intention to be used offensively against Parahumans in the event they were used by enemies of the state, or more probability and devastatingly, by other great powers. This airborne mobile command ship was intended to use its own magical and supernatural capabilities as a direct counter to the rise and spread of the foreign and unknown manifestation of parahuman powers.

Directly following the Incident, the number of parahumans increased exponentially for 5 years before plateauing. As of 2029, roughly 1 in every million people is an active parahuman.

In the United States and many countries, Parahumans are regarded with fear and disgust by many normal humans and wizards, due to an intense distrust from the events of what many deem a violent uprising that was responsible for the sudden destabilization of global affairs and society.
