A fantastic breed of humans. Gingers typically have lovely luscious red locks. They are often made fun of by non-gingers, but everyone knows that it's because they're just jealous of our gingerosity.
Brunette: "You have no soul!"
Ginger: "You're an envious poopyhead."

A rare natural hair colour which inspires odd and sometimes fearful reactions from the more common coloured hair types. Typically redheads are believed to be more sexual than normal, highly artistic, fierce fighters, and to have a greater tolerance for pain than average. The sun is their only real enemy. Decendants of vikings. The Romans were said to have put red haired males born in the empire into training as soldiers since they were believed to be fierce warriors. Rome also gave up on taking Ireland due to the number of redheads they saw there.
Women with ginger hair are greatly admired in the US yet feared in the UK.

Being called a "Ginger" is an insult in England but laughable in the US.

Famous gingers/redheads: Vincent van Gogh, Thomas Jefferson, Eric the Red, Stan Laurel, Ron Howard, Katharine Hepburn, Maud Gonne, Maureen O'Hara, Shirley Manson, Ewan McGregor, Lindsay Lohan...etc...

Contrary to prior beliefs, ginger does not always mean red hair, freckles, and pale skin. Ginger stands for genius, intuitive, nice, gracious, energetic, respectful.

A legendary race believed to have descended from Prometheus himself, the bringer of fire. Some believe that the first Ginger was in fact the flame that Prometheus handed down to the human race that fateful day. Regardless, since that day, all Gingers have had the fire of Prometheus coursing through their veins, scorching their hair bright red, charring their skin into what are commonly mistaken for freckles when the fire strays too close to the surface. While most myths surrounding the mysterious Ginger people are fabricated, some come quite close to the truth. While it is true that Gingers lack what can be considered a truly human soul, what most people don't realize is that all Gingers have been graced with the infinitely more powerful spirit of the gods. It is for this reason that the human race has so discriminated against the Ginger people. Somewhere buried deep in their subconscious is the knowledge that they will never live up to the glory and power of their Ginger counterparts and thus, like everything that threatens the ego of the human race, they beat down and attempt to humiliate them into submission. But there will come a time when all those blessed with the fire of the gods in their veins will rise up and right all wrongs in the world and bring peace and harmony to all.
Guy 1: Dude, check out that ginger!
Guy 2: Whoa, don't you know what its capable of? We should get the hell out of here. Or better yet, bow down at its feet and thank it for its mercy and grace for letting us live.
