the groups

Castes are the color coded groups the people are now divided into: each caste signified by their color, and each color signifies their ranking in the system, as well as their "job" in the society.

In time, humanity improved this hierarchy through genetic and surgical manipulation. The result was a color-coded society of perfect efficiency, dominated by a superior breed of humanity, the Golds.

Below you will read about each of the groups in detail. At the top of each post will be the statistics for the group. Don't hesitate to ask any questions in the guest friendly board, cbox or send a staff a pm!

HIGH COLORS


gold

♂ 04 ♀ 02 ☿ 00

The fiercely intelligent leaders of humanity.

The Golds are born into the highest ranks of society. You do not rise to this position. You have rich mothers and fathers that raise you and train you mentally and physically to the age of eighteen. Then, you go to The Institute. Here, you learn how to be a leader. You learn how money rules the world, you learn the ropes of your parents' role in society so you can take over their position when it's your turn to lead. Teaching and educating is conduced under the tutelage and watchful eyes of their specific proctors.

The Golds have every privilege in life. They are entitled to nav-screens, hover boots, hover cars, gadgets and to every one Gold, there are two Pinks waiting on their every desire. Think of the Golds as the richest people in the world.

The Golds are leaders of men and women and children. They are who the rest of the world looks up to, supposedly. It is not foreign for people to be angered by the Golds or even envious of them. Being a Gold does not come without its drawbacks, after all.

Some of the jobs a Gold may have, if you cannot think of your own are:
political or military leaders. Their desire is the rest of the world's wish. Some examples would be ship captains, presidents, governors, senators, ministers, politicians of any kind etc., etc.

silver

♂ 04 ♀ 02 ☿ 00

Innovators, financiers and businessmen.

The Silvers do not get as much appreciation as they should. Often trapped in the shadows of the Golds, the Silvers suffer being overlooked by the world. However, they play a big role in the world. They improve what we already hold dear. They make investments and have a keen eye for what will be the next big thing. They are often sharply dressed and incredibly impressive. There is no fooling a Silver. You must be born into a Silver family, and from there on you will be welcomed into a creative world of numbers and facts.

Silvers share the same privileges of the Golds, but are often made aware that they are piggybacking off of the Golds by other colors. Though this is untrue, there will always be prejudices. Although in some ways the Silvers are more hard working, it is difficult for that to be recognized.

Some of the jobs a Silver may have are, if you cannot think of any yourself:
Judges, Businessmen/women, Social Entrepreneurs, Trend Hunters, CEO, business owners etc.

copper

♂ 02 ♀ 01 ☿ 00

Administrators, lawyers and bureaucrats

Intensely intelligent and broadly admired, the Coppers have extensive knowledge of how the world works now. Each Copper goes through extensive training and follows rituals in their personal lives as well as in their professional. They have lives full of work and have often found difficulty in making time for social lives. Coppers are often found to have stress related illnesses and prefer to work in shifts rather than in consistent periods of time to reduce the impacts of the job.

Coppers are widely recognised as some of the most successful people out there. They may not be Golds, but they make sure that the world runs smoothly. Coppers are allowed different benefits to the higher ups. They are allowed second class grav boots and third class hover cars. For every two Coppers there is one Pink available between them.

Some jobs that a Copper may have, if you cannot think of any yourself are:
governement workers, Administrators, investors, lawyers, bureaucrats.

white

♂ 01 ♀ 00 ☿ 00

Priests and priestesses that oversee the ritual functions of society.

The Whites are the men and women that look over weddings, funerals, blessings of homes and boats... They are highly respected and are vastly intelligent. They are trusted by many and resented by few. They are pure in every way. The Whites are thought to be the ones who connect the Color Gods with humans, the bridges between divinity and mortals.

The main ways of switching to a White lifestyle are:

  • Retaining your virginity throughout your life, not getting married and dedicating your life to the church from an early age (for children and teenagers) by starting studying and attending a few years of a specialized college. Students usually live in dorms split on genders or are sheltered by kind families of other Colors until they finish their studies.

  • If already an adult, they must take part in a strict ritual to "restore their purity" and start the study of the church.
  • Information on rituals and Gods can be found here.

    Whites are entitled to plenty of luxuries but refuse most if not all of them. It is a courtesy amongst Whites.

    The roles a White may take on as a job are: Priest, Priestess and any lower ranking member of these positions.

    MIDDLE COLORS


    blue

    ♂ 03 ♀ 03 ☿ 00

    Pilots and astronavigators bred to crew starships

    Often regarded as heroes and idols,the Blues are trained from birth to appreciate logic and mathematics to make them the most efficient. As soon as they are eighteen years of age they are infused with DigiTats. Digital tattoos that allow them to synchronise with the ships they fly. Their minds exist on a different plane where they are one with the ships they fly.

    Blues fly the ships that Golds command, Oranges keep in shape, Greys patrol and Obsidians guard. They're an important part of the integral workings of Star Ships. Known for their skill, they are born into families of legends. The Blues are the men and women that see everything first. They are the crusaders lead by Golden warriors, with Obsidians flanking their sides and guarding their bodies. The Blues are hugely intelligent and know all there is to know about a starship.

    Blues live on Earth, but spend most of their time in space, or training to be in space They are not the types of people to spend their hours lounging in the embraces of Pinks or other Blues. They are dedicated and hard working with tireless amounts commitment to their work.

    Though Blues are entitled to plenty of benefits, it is rare that they get the opportunity to use them. They work hard for long periods of time. They often mingle with the higher ups but otherwise keep to their Blue roots.

    Possible jobs for a Blue are, but not only: spacecraft/watercraft pilots, navigators, astrophysicists.

    yellow

    ♂ 00 ♀ 02 ☿ 00

    Experts in human and natural sciences. Doctors, psychologists and scientists.

    The Yellows support the entire hierarchy. Without them, the world would not flourish as it does. Without their tireless work, no one would feel as safe and as secure. The Yellows of Earth create stability and security in their never ending research and understanding of the world. The importance of them and all that they do is paramount to almost their every other responsibility. Yellows and the work they do are highly guarded by Obsidians.

    Yellows go through intensive training and schooling until they are twenty. When they come of age, they are sworn to secrecy to never discuss the work they do outside of their workplace. They are then assigned to shadow higher up Yellows and train under them from five to ten years before finding their own place in the world of intelligence and research and pick a specialisation to focus on.

    The Yellows, in spite of their hard work, are not entitled to many benefits. They must buy their own Pinks and have a limited choice of technology to choose from.

    Some of the most common Yellow jobs are: doctors, nurses, surgeons, psychologist, psychiatrist, therapist, physician, scientist, nutritionists, lab assistants etc.

    green

    ♂ 02 ♀ 00 ☿ 00

    The programmers and developers of technology.

    For all the amazing technology in the world, it would not exist if it were not for the Greens. Leading brains full of intellect and wonderful intelligence that serves only to better the world. Greens are constantly working hard to make the world better off.

    Greens are responsible for such pieces of technology: hover cars, tablet watches, projection mirrors and various other pieces of incredible technology. Greens go through very difficult training as soon as they have come of age. They are expected to attain a certain level of intelligence and if they fail they are instructed to redo the entire process. It is so difficult some Greens do not graduate until their late thirties. The average graduation age for a green though is from mid to late 20s, not counting internships and the starter level jobs they need to gain experience.

    Though Greens work furiously hard for the good of Earth, they get very few benefits. They must buy their own Pinks and have very little choice in their accommodation. However, they receive first 'dibs' of the items they create.

    Some Green jobs are, but not only: programmers, developers, technology/system engineers, spaceship engeneer, prostectics developers, any kind of inventors.

    violet

    ♂ 05 ♀ 05 ☿ 00

    The creative class of artists, musicians and performers.

    Where would the world be without the creative minds that fill the world with laughter and love, tears and drama? The Violets are middle class workers that bring the songs we sing, the art we ponder and the performances we crave to the stage. Though the Violets are not as highly respected as the classes above them they know to carry their creative heads high.

    Violets have a very strong media relationship. They're frequently on our screens and they have a solid fan base. They are well loved and well represented. Violets do not have any intensive school programmes but are encouraged from birth to appreciate the world around them and find inspiration in everything an everyone they meet.

    Violets have very few benefits. They do not get the best pay and they don't always seem to mind. It is commonly thought that Violets do what they do for the creative freedom, not the money. They do not have any rights to Pinks and have no technological benefits.

    Jobs may include:artists of all kinds, musicians, designers, dancers, performers, singers, carvers, writers, painters, tv show hosts, actors & actresses, news anchors, beauticians of all kinds.

    orange

    ♂ 01 ♀ 00 ☿ 00

    Provide systems support upon star ships and all manner of mechanical enterprises

    Oranges are the people we turn to when things go wrong. They understand the ins and outs of star ships and everything mechanical. They are practical, pragmatic people that find joy in restoring power and bringing life back to the technology. They spend a lot of their time on calls out into the rest of the world, fixing things up.

    Oranges are a middle class community that stick closely together with other restoration and repair communities. Oranges do not have any benefits and are often suspected of stealing from the things they repair and support. Often, Greys raid the Orange communities in search of these supposedly stolen items.

    The Oranges do not have any benefits. It is not uncommon for a Pink to be on the arm of the Orange, but it takes a good deal of money to have a Pink for an evening. Oranges seem eager to strive against the insulting image other colours seem to have of them, however.

    Some jobs may be: mechanics, mechanical engineers, builders, IT support, spaceship maintenance, etc.

    gray

    ♂ 02 ♀ 02 ☿ 00

    Military and police personnel

    The Grays are ferocious and orderly. Ruled by the higher ups, they do not question their orders. They are everywhere, overlooking everyone and everything. They make sure there is nothing to be done wrong and if they suspect someone of misbehaving or conspiring against the hierarchy they are more than welcome to take in the supposed wrongdoers and submit them to torture and or brainwashing.

    Grays are middle class workers that are very tightly knit together. Grays treat one another like blood. Though they are all aware that at the end of the day they're expendable that does not stop them, usually, from doing their jobs to the best of their ability.

    The Grays have very few benefits. Their health is taken care as a benefit, and so is their pension. Grays retire as soon as they are too injured to be able to work. Grays are often in arranged marriages that others seem to think are consistently loveless.

    Grays usually have a high school level of education before they attend a 5 year of brutal training in the gray's training grounds.

    Some of the jobs a Grey could have are: security guards, detectives of all kinds, patrol officers, special agents, interrogators etc.

    LOW COLORS


    brown

    ♂ 00 ♀ 00 ☿ 00

    Servants in homes, businesses and social institutions

    The Browns are low class, minimum wage servants. They work in other people's homes for little pay and fewer tips. They get to see lavish and luxurious homes and businesses that they know they will never get to truly enjoy. Some view this as a sick reminder from the Golds that they will never be as well off as them.

    Browns rarely have any benefits to their name at all. It is a shock to meet a Brown with a Pink or with a car of their own. Browns do not have a lot of faith that things will ever get better for them.

    Browns usually have a primary school level of education, manners, obedience, reading and writing are mostly the only things they need to have knowledge of.

    Some jobs could be: servants, maids, butlers, nannies, personal gardeners, janitors, cooks, personal drivers, hoverbus/hovercab drivers etc.

    obsidian

    ♂ 05 ♀ 01 ☿ 00

    A monstrous race bred only for war

    Obsidians are a terrifying race that give small children nightmares. They are made for war. They have no other purpose but to slay the enemy. They travel out of the planet's atmosphere upon ships to conquer the rest of the world. They can be gone for years at a time, slaughtering and conquering in the name of Earth.

    Obsidians are not kept separate from the rest of the world like some would like them to be. They are free to mingle within the communities but with their extra height, strength and speed, it can be difficult for them to fit in with anyone but themselves. Sometimes, lower colors refer to them as Blacks too.

    The Obsidians have no benefits. They are bred to believe that they do not need pleasure or lust, or at the very least are instructed to keep it strictly to themselves. Obsidians get no health benefits, considering their purpose is to fight it would cost the world simply too much to keep on healing them when there are plenty new ones waiting to be drafted.

    Obsidians are raised with carefully developed diets and workout routines to grow strong for when they start their official training as soldiers. They dont get a special 'school' education unless homeschooled until the age of 16, when they start training to fight.

    Some of the jobs a Obsidians may have are:
    Soldiers, ship crew in military vessels, bodyguards for the high colors etc.

    pink

    ♂ 01 ♀ 04 ☿ 00

    Unparalleled in beauty, they are picked or bred and trained for the physical arts of pleasure.

    The Pinks are here to tend to your every desire and wish. They lead full lives in spite of their colours and have no trouble being healthy, happy adults. Pinks are infamous for being in polyamorous relationships. They often find a partner for their own privacy and their own life and will still go out the next day to do their duty as a Pink. Others choose to remain single.

    Pinks wind up in all sorts of places. Golden homes, Violet rave parties, Blue bunkers... They are notorious secret keepers and often rake in more money they deserve when they demand their silence be bought. Of course, not everyone is so willing and there are such unfortunate mornings where Pink bodies lay forgotten and dead in alleyways and ditches.

    Pinks are low class and have no benefits. They end up where they end up through invitation only and even then, are thought to be free loaders. Pinks by no means have it easy. They are classified as:

  • Escorts - Pinks who satisfy everyone's physical needs, crudely known as prostitutes. They're sterilized at age 18, to avoid mixed Colors pregnancies.
  • Storks - Pinks who chose to help perpetuate the Color by picking a partner (much like an engagement or marriage) and procreating, to bring healthy and beautiful Pink babies into the world. They may, of course, change their partner much like a divorce if desired. The Storks need to be extra careful as the risk of inbreeding is present.
  • Roses - Roses are Pinks who are deemed too old to keep being an Escort or a Stork and now look over the younger Pinks around the brothels or clubs or may even manage business there. Others decide to become mentors for the newer Pink generations.

  • Born Pinks can choose during their puberty the path they want to take, be it becoming an Escort or a Stork. At age 18, they're required to decide so they can be sterilized in case they want to become an Escort, or paired up with another Stork.

    People who come from different Colors wishing to become Pinks can only become Escorts, to avoid mixing Color genes. They're sterilized as soon as their Pink training is over.
    The Pink's schooling usually lasts for 5 years, in which they learn everything needed to do their job.

    Most common jobs are: escorts, strippers, masseurs, prostitutes etc.

    red

    ♂ 01 ♀ 01 ☿ 00

    Unskilled manual labourers conditioned to brutal environments.

    The Reds are the lowest of the low. They work mostly underground and live close to the mines. They mine natural resources such as gas, coal and oil, and also work on construction, agricultural fields, factories and other brutal and heavy labor no one else wants. They do not have many other prospects in life, though Reds feel that family is the strongest, and they are mostly organized in tight-knit clans.

    Reds have no benefits and are generally the butt of corruption and disregard. The Golds view them as dirt to be walked upon. In truth, the Reds likely hold up the entire community with their hard work.

    The Reds are encouraged to work hard and to work for rewards. If any one Red works the hardest out of his team he can earn a year long reward for the entire team. However, this is usually a biased win and a Gold will often choose the winner at random.

    Reds do not get any sort of education, as they focus on learning the use of every single tool and the way materials are handled in order to do their jobs. Usually their parents choose if to educate them at home or not, but they dont have any school privileges, they learn the trade with knowledge being passed down the generations.

    Some jobs may be: miners, farmers (working on the land, not owning it) etc.

    UNRANKED


    Aliens

    ♂ 00 ♀ 00 ☿ 00

    Humanity's (un)friendly visitors

    Aliens visit Earth frequently. Humans are a minor species in the grand scheme of things in the Universe, they are seen as odd with their Color castes, and places like Novas have a booming market with tourism for all sorts of aliens.

    Some aliens even choose to live among the humans, be it for the exoticness of the species itself or simply because they needed a change of scenery.

    Alien species are member-created and can be bought in the points shop as special characters.

    Alien species introduced so far:

  • KARHA'KRAS ;
  • RAKHTISH ;
  • tba;
