A-classes are monsters known as abominations. Abominations happen when notails are affected by the mutagens on their planets that give other animals extreme mutations throughout their generations. This means that children who are born on planets that aren't their highly mutagen filled homeworld are much less likely to come out as abominations. Every notail that born on any of their planets is likely mutagen infected, meaning even if the child is born on a perfectly clean planet there is still a chance of getting an abomination.
An abomination is far from just a normal mutated notail. Most of the mutations an A-class suffers are rather extreme, to the point that the child could seem as an offshoot of the notail species. While the way A-classes looks vary extremely, there are a few things that A-classes have in common. Most A-classes are animal-like in their behavior, like feral notails. A-classes also seem to have an extreme taste for flesh to the point of fully being ok with eating other notails. A-classes lastly are far more powerful than the average notail physically.
As a loose A-class can rapidly cause damage to properties and individuals, getting rid of A-classes as soon as possible is important. If a child is far too mutated to be a normal notail than it is tossed out under suspicions of being an A-class. Unfornetly some perfectly fine, if a bit too mutated notails get tossed out under suspicion of being an A-class. Nearly every A-class is rooted out and tossed away by the age of two, where behavior differences really start to show. The rare A-classes that get past everyone's radars at this point are a rather special kind of A-class.
Mimic: A mimic is one of the few types of A-classes that has even a small chance of getting past the radars of everyone around it. Mimics look like perfectly normal notails, and while they appear to have a bit of an anger issue this is normally quickly brushed off. Mimics will appear to gain a mutation around the age of seven, but while growing a mutation so early is uncommon it's nothing to be alarmed about.
Around the age of nine, a mimic will burst out of its skin and show its true form before attacking anyone around it. If a mimic is accidentally taught to be friendly it can go undetected for the rest of their life. Living a perfectly normal notail life, only having an itching aggressive feeling in the back of their head that whispers to them to attack their friends.
Mutations: A-classes have an extreme range of mutations or "evolutions" that make them much more deadly than the normal notail. There are no define mutations an A-class can get which makes dealing with them a hard matter.
• A-classes are sometimes gathered up and placed in cages for most of their lives, only to finally be let out on to an alien planet. From there the A-classes will likely cause massive damage to an unprepared population. This is of course only done to enemies of notails. Some species will recapture A-classes and resend them out to the notails, causing a universal game of hot potato to begin.
• When notails are saving A-classes they will dump them on Prison Planet allowing them to wonder the planet feasting on whatever doesn't run away fast enough. Due to demands from O-4, the A-classes are to be dumped on the opposite end of the planet, away from the Prison Planet castle and the small settlements around it.
• Rates of A-class creation go up in naturally created notails, goes even higher if one of the parents has no antennas, and reaches its highest point if both parents lack antennas at an about 1/10 chance of making an A-class.
• Technically creating an "A-class" in another species is possible, but not many non-notail species live on the main notail homeworld long enough to allow the level of mutagen levels needed to cause this. Even if they did and found a mate who also had high enough levels the chances are still believed to be extremely low.
