Amidst the rubble of a war not long past, the stars seek to raise a new generation. Blessed with celestial powers that have begun to make their reappearance, the Gifted are individuals whose shoulders the future of the city rests on. Will you overthrow the dysfunctional government or work to keep it in power? Or will you undermine the whole game and play to your own advantage? No matter your motives, Hyperion is yours to shape.
A mild-mannered secretary with a secret obsession with "saving the world." He pursues this end at the side of Ambrosia Merigold; once she's done burning the world to ash, he'll be the seed that begins life anew.

Simple question, but perhaps it'll become a common one. The site's system holds that powers are upgraded with their basis in the western Zodiac system, but IC, do the people know that's how it works? Are people's powers affected by astrological phenomena, and if so, are they aware of that?
While people are aware of western horoscopes, their actual connection to a Gifted's powers hasn't really come to light. Because a person's sun power often doesn't correlate with their sun sign, most people don't have any reason to suspect that the powers they wield are directly tied to the stars themselves. There are definitely some fanatics out there who have theorized that the positions of planets in a person's full horoscope might indicate how their power further develops, but actually awakened Gifted have only begun to increase in frequency recently. The last big boom of Gifted resulted in the war between the government and the past organizations, but before that they were very rare among the population. So, yes, while there are a handful of people out there who believe their powers are tied directly to their signs, they're a very distinct minority - and most people don't give their theories any credence.
But yes, people's powers are affected by their signs, it's just that there's such a small sample size (especially of people who awaken their moon, ascendant, etc.), that there isn't enough data available in-game for them to confirm it as such.
