My job: Inventor of sorts. Don’t call me a god; I hate that term. I prefer Creator of Species. Yes. I like that. The task at hand?  An entirely new species. Different than the rest. Better, perhaps, although it will be too humble to admit it.

I drop lavender liquid into my beaker, adding Empathetic and Compassionate to the already established shades of Independent orange.  Enigmatic yellow swirls into my mixture. Three drops of Intensely Emotional and five of Selfless. Two of Tolerant. Four of Courageous. A combination of Strong and Resilient equaling a quarter cup.
