Nova - the term for a new so-called evolution of humanity. The first documented Nova was 6 years ago, when a young woman miraculously survived an apartment fire. Her newfound Nova power allowed her to control the fire itself.
Soon after, young Novas started appearing all over the globe. No one was sure why they suddenly developed powers.
Seeing a need to be filled, the Galvan Corporation constructed an academy in Colorado, to teach and train new Novas how to use their powers. They accepted students with Nova powers for high-class private education for both their minds and their powers.
It was a great success. Despite some issues, the training received there was put to good use. In general, the public’s view of Galvan Corporation and their sponsorship of Novas was positive.
Not all areas of the world viewed Novas in such a great light. In Eastern Europe especially, tensions between Novas there and various governments grew, with mandatory registration of Novas. The Novas there organized, and rebelled. One particularly powerful Nova named Anuar, with the ability to control plants, erupted a massive nearly-impenetrable jungle in northeast Kazakhstan. He declared it an independent Nova nation with an open call for all Novas to join him in safety. Many in Europe did.
Tensions are on the rise. Novas are now distrusted. However, Galvan Corporation has come up with a solution, for the west. They unveiled Nova task forces, able to deal with disasters around the world - including ones caused by Anuar’s rogue Novas.
With these events, changes are coming to Galvan Academy…
