There's really nothing to say about D-classes. D-classes are any class of notail who has been "born incorrect" or not to notail standards. While some mutations are shrugged away and allowed some are far too extreme for notails to ignore. The most common dud type is a notail being born without antennas which disallows the “dud” to be able to speak to other notails with ease. Notails actually have quick surgeries they can do to add antennas to a notail who has lost or broken theirs, but when a notail is born without them they are tossed into the dud bin anyway.
What happens to a dud is one of two things. If they're lucky they'll be killed quickly and disposed of. If they're unlucky they'll be shipped to labs where they will be test subjects until they die. Many tests will ensure that D-classes die an early death. Even if released the damage done to D-classes, even those who haven't gone through extremely harmful experiments is often too great. Their low self-esteem and aversion to people tend to be permanent.
D-classes are often told by those who work in labs that the outside is in ruins and that leaving would be the end of them for sure. When lab workers don't tell them this lie, they commonly lie about the location of the lab and of the area around the lab, ensuring that even if a D-class escapes they will become lost and quickly overwhelmed by the outside world.
D-classes who survive lab conditions can have rather troubling behavior such as aversion to the outside world, lack of trust, sudden and often unpleasant self-perception changes, as well as assuming that everyone, even those who help them, must have a nefarious alternative motive for interacting with them. Unfornetly this all adds up to the very few true D-class escapees to not wish to talk or make public the issues they have faced. They either fear someone will attempt to track them down or they believe that people just wish to profit off of them and will toss them to the side afterward. Regardless there is still a few D-class biography on the market today.
Every type of notail: D-classes can be any type of notail including every single type of subtype. It's even possible for an O-class clone to be messed up, be labeled a D-class, and shipped off to a lab. The latter has only happened a few times in history.
Rollback: Every notail who is naturally born the most common type of D-class, that being one who has no antennas, will naturally have lower immunity to sickness and mutagens unlike notails with antennas. Along with this antennaless notails who have natural borns will have a much higher chance of creating notails without antennas. Strangely enough implanting antennas into a notail will correct all these issues. While these issues look major, D-classes can easily get around most of them with yearly vaccinations and avoiding areas of high mutagens, much like most species in the universe already do.
• There are more than a few cases of scientists, child caretakers, and other notails helping D-classes get away. Taking them either off planet or implanted with antennas if that was their issue so notails are unable to tell if they're a D-class.
• As notails are made in batches if one notail in a batch is a D-class most of them will be D-classes.
• If a D-class escapes instead of being killed or taken back to the lab they are considered "having earned their freedom." Sadly these D-classes are also considered to "have broken the law by escaping the labs" and thus are shipped to Prison Planet. Whether or not this is a better than being trapped in a lab depends on the notail.
