The term "Gifted" refers to those that appear human, yet exhibit otherworldly traits. Whether its through gene-modification, experimentation, or simply the fact they were born with the innate ability to use magic, these humans often stand out among their more mundane counterparts.
Gifted are most commonly created through traditional means: they are simply born from their parents with natural ability. Other methods of creation include experimentation and modification--often done by scientists that have made their living testing out different methods of extraction and application using traits harvested from other Gifted. In some cases, traits from preternatural creatures are applied in this fashion.
Unlike other species, there's no exact classification for the various sub-types of the Gifted, aside from Witches.
