Mutants are humans who were exposed to large amounts of radiation that altered their biology on the cellular level, causing them to grow extra body parts or change in other ways. They live in environments not suited for other life, often post-apocalyptic wastelands where might makes right and scavenger warlords rule through fear. Continual exposure to radiation sources can also affect their minds, making them psychotic or irrational.
