There are special people in this world. 
We don't ask to be special. 
We're just born this way. 
We pass you on the streets every day, unnoticed by most. 

It started in 1945. 
The Nazis were conducting experiments in psychic warfare... 
Trying to turn those with psychic abilities into soldiers. 
Lots of us died. 

The war ended,
But the experiments never stopped. 
Other governments around the world set up what they called "Divisions"…
Trying to do what the Nazis couldn't, to turn us into weapons.
Division's agents are trained to track and hunt us down like animals... 
take us away from our families and friends. 
There are children stuffed away all over the world.    
They test us and categorize us. 

I'm what they call a "watcher". 
We can see the future, even if that's not always as simple as it sounds.
 The jumbo jet crashed. 
There are no reports of survivors. 

Others are called "movers", just an easy way of saying "telekinetic". 
"Pushers" put thoughts in your head and make whatever lie they come up with the truth. 
They'd already begun to control my mind... 

"Sniffs", "shifters", "shadows", "bleeders", it goes on and on. 
In Division's eyes, we're all just lab rats. 
Only one problem:
We keep dying. 

The evidence shows that the kids were given milk with radioactive iodine. 
No one has ever survived the drug meant to boost our powers. 
My name is Cassie Holmes. 
Division took my mom from me.    

Right now the future I see doesn't look so great. 
The good news is the future is always changing... in the largest of ways by the smallest of things. 
They've been winning a lot of battles. 

Now it's our turn to win the war.
