Noun; pronounced "dih-cass-ter".

1. A person who is unpopular with peers yet still beautiful, smart, and capable simply because they are human.

2. Literally translates to mean "beautiful foreigner".

From Latin word decorus, meaning "beautiful", and Spanish word forastero, which indirectly translates to mean "foreign".

The Spanish word forastero was referring to a cocoa tree (called criollo) imported into Venezuela from the West Indies in the mid-19th century. The word evolved to mean foreign.

Famous decasters include Alan Turing (a mathematical prodigy invented a code breaking computer during WWII), Edgar Allan Poe (a brilliant author who wrote many famous short stories and poems), and Ludwig van Beethoven (a genius composer who continued to write beautiful symphonies even after he became deaf).
