"The difference was that we had three young pawns who rose up to the challenge and shouldered the burden. Not only did they manage to preserve the strength of their respective armies...They went a step further and demonstrated extraordinary resilience and strength in the face of overwhelming adversity. There is no doubt that it was the efforts of those three young men...That threw Ri Bkou's carefully constructed plans into complete disarray."
― General Ou Sen acknowledging Ri Shin, Ou Hon, and Mou Ten (Kingdom)

Also Called

  • Genius Child
  • Gifted Child
  • Wonder Child/Wunderkind
  • Wakadaisho (若大将)

Capabilities

Child prodigies are often very young. They are mostly gifted with abilities and are able to perform them at the level of a highly trained adult in a very demanding field of endeavor. This is either because of a latent talent within the child or inheritance of the child's family line.

Applications

Associations

Limitations

  • Abusive or neglectful parents may use the child's gifts for their own desires.
  • Major stress placed upon the gifted child could cause an apathetic and unstable mindset.
  • One may be seen as unnatural and maybe even a monster.
  • Others may be competitive against the child.
  • Others may not take the child seriously.
  • The child may want an ordinary childhood and to be treated as an ordinary child rather than a genius and/or a hero.
  • Unusual talent and potential does not make up for the actual experience.
  • Lack of emotional maturity that comes with age may lead to overconfidence and arrogance among peers.
  • Might be limited to certain areas, such as certain types of science, magic, and fighting/combat.
