This is a world, where when you're 10 years old, you're ability is activated. As soon as government figures out what it is, they give you a tattoo with a symbol to represent what you can do, so it is exposed to the public. The more powerful you become, the tattoo begins to grow- on its own.
But there's a twist. All races aside from whites and blacks have gone extinct from a mysterious epidemic. White people have the tattoos, black people do not. It's believed that white people got the epidemic, but they mutated to accommodate, while the others just died off and the blacks stayed the same.
With the world in ruin, someone somewhere decided that blacks would go back to being slaves to whites, and if they fought back, whites would destroy them with whatever ability they had. It was survival of the fittest. It was a world of fear for half of the population.
