Prodigies are a species that were created when a bomb dropped in 2908. When the bombs hit, a virus was released. Most people had gotten into the vaults made for this problem but others had not. The others survived but were infected by the virus and created the creatures known as the Prodigies.
The Prodigies always go with the color red. They seem to have hind legs instead of normal legs along with three claws on the feet. They then have a long tail. On their stomachs is a strange pattern that usually is spaced out chest peices. Their hands have three fingers instead of four, usually ending in sharp nails. Their head is far from a human head. It is a bit round while having two mini spikes on the left and right of their head while having two huge spikes potruding from the back of their head. Their eyes are mostly black, having red around the outside and middle. They do have eyebrows and normal eyelids though. The last thing they have on their head is snout of some kind, having large teeth at the top and smaller teeth at the bottom.
The only gender difference is that the male is about the size of a normal person while the female is a bit smaller while having wider hips and an strange mark at the outer sides of their eyes.
Prodigies where created after the events of the world being nuked by "accident". The small amount of people who were outside while still being alive where transformed after the chemicals from the bombs where fused with other elements from buildings, technology, etc. After being turned into a prodigy, their population would grow and grow as they could reproduce prodigies. Eventually the prodigies where being chased after the people who hid in the vaults were let out to rebuild. Because of a misunderstanding, the humans and prodigies have been enemies since. Also, it is noted that their emotions are more bigger than a human's and bond easily.
The Prodigies are usually peaceful when they are alone with their own kind. Most have been driven away from human population while some have remand inside the walls of the cities, staying hidden from mankind. If a human does stumble upon one, the prodigy might fight back or run away to another place. It has been rare that prodigies have welcomed people as they have to gain the trust of the person in order to become freinds.
