Aquatic Physical Savants, or the APS pt 1
Some people can be born with enhanced abilities that are outside of the norms. Sports people, double jointed people, contortionists, are some examples. Roger Bannister who broke the four minute mile had an unusual lung capacity. Ussain Bolt may have some enhanced physical characterists. The Sherpa who escort people up Mount Everest seem to be adapted to breathing thinner air. Then there are savants. People with amazing mental abilities, for example in mathamatics. In the film Rain man starring Dustin Hoffman, an autistic man also had savant abilities, as regards card counting.
Well there could be said to be a class of human beings. who could be described as physical savants, with enhanced physical characteristics. The ones the Cafuelarena are most interested in, are the Aquatic Physical Savants or the APS humans. The green eyed pale skinned redheads, with pronounced webbed hands and feet.
Some people suffer from an illness which includes being pale skinned, and being light senseitive, and having unconventional dental conditions, so they have unusual teeth. They are also lacking in iron, so their diet is more carnivore. These people probably gave rise to the vampire legend. In the same way, there might be some connection between the Aquatic Physical Savants, and the mermaid legend. The strongest mermaid territory in Britain is Cornwall, and the Shetland Islands. The Cafuelarena were totally shocked when they disocvered that the Shetland Island mermaid legends spoke of mermaids that were NOT mono fins, but had two legs and webbed feet, and could walk upon the land.
