What does it mean to be a young Illuminatus?
Your school days, if you ever went there, are over. You will surely need to know things, things you've never even had an inkling of before, but you will never have to set foot inside a classroom again as long as you live. Instead, you have a job- a job in which you command and control various people to further your agenda and the agenda of the organization as a whole. Nobody said it was going to be easy, but you wouldn't be here if you couldn't do it!
Your reflexes are heightened to the point that you can dodge bullets, your eyes and ears sharpened, your strength and intelligence almost at the limit of physical possibility. You regenerate from everything that doesn't kill you outright and you can never get sick or grow old. This is either because you were born- created- that way, or you're the recipient of a powerful, recently invented retrovirus.
You live in your own mansion. Your every physical need, every tedious chore, is taken care of by hominid automatons. For physical things, toys, cars, weapons, you can get whatever you like simply by asking for it. Don't worry about laws governing such things; you're far above them now, no matter where you go. If you need to go somewhere, you simply fly there in your personal plane or helicopter. But you can't go wherever you want- your existence is shrouded in secrecy, and the normal world believes you're either dead or don't exist at all.
Don't worry about lacking for companionship, though; your best friends live with you, too, and are augmented just like you. You never have to worry about them betraying you, either, since they have to do whatever you say, no matter what, whether you're mean, nice, or in-between.
Problems? Of course you have problems, but they're not run-of-the-mill, annoying problems. You have people struggling for control, normals who must never be allowed to see the secrets, people who want to kill you. But you can fight your problems, because you're the one with the power.
And if you can imagine leading six thousand people with the same powers you have, you can understand what it means to be the Dominator..
