Have you ever thought about how cool it would be to have a special ‘gift’ or power? In my book ‘Enemy Through The Gates’ there are four types of gifted humans…
Seers: They possess the ability to see any danger or threat to our world along with any matters pertaining to the gates. (Gates are a series of portals or “doors” throughout our dimension linking it to other dimensions.)
Gatekeepers: They have the ability to manipulate various energy fields, including the energy around the gates. They can open and close the gates, which comes in handy with shutting out unwanted visitors to our world.
Speakers: They have the ability to understand and speak all languages of any origin.
Guardians: They have super strength, super speed like Superman (minus the vulnerability to Kryptonite) but can be injured like any mortal human.
The abilities of a Seer are inherently attached to the XX chromosome. Therefore, only females possess the potential to be a Seer. On the opposite end of the genetic spectrum, Guardian abilities are attached to the Y chromosome thereby limiting Guardian powers to males. Bearing that in mind, I think I would prefer to be a Guardian. Why? Because they are the bad asses of the bunch! They have superior speed, strength, etc. Think Superman minus the flying ability and vulnerability to Kryptonite. How much fun would that be? However, there is the training. Once they begin developing their powers after puberty, Guardians steadily gain strength, stamina and physical bulk. I think Stan Lee put it best in his Spiderman comics with the quote…”With great power comes great responsibility.” So, Guardians must constantly discipline themselves and hone their skills through training.
A Seer doesn’t need to train. She basically sits around waiting to see an event. But, when she does, it can be pretty physically taxing. I compare Seers with the type of brain-iacs that have an answer to everything but can’t keep up in gym class. One could argue that brains are better than brawn, to which, I concur. Yet, Guardians are not ‘all brawn and no brains’. Typically, they’re like most people in that some are smarter than others. So, intelligence really doesn’t factor into my choice. I just think it would be cool to lay some major smack down on an alien interloper showing up to threaten our world.
Okay, so now that you know a little bit more about the gifted humans in ‘Enemy Through The Gates’…who do you think you would prefer to be? I’ve already told you my answer, so I want to hear yours!
