Red is the color classification for those who developed pyrokinetic powers as a result of IAAN. Red classified individuals have the ability to create and manipulate fire. As a result, they possess immense destructive potential, and are considered the second most dangerous of the PSI.
Although the ratios are not well documented, it is likely that individuals possessing Red powers were relatively rare, even at the onset of IAAN. Reds were the only ones who all received some sort of physical side effect as a result of their powers. It caused some part of their body twitch or shake uncontrollably at times. This is how Mason got his nickname 'twitch', and the cause of Cole's hand spasms. Apparently, reds and oranges would be killed on spot. However, this may not be the case for reds, as there are multiple reds in which the government and Clancy Gray use to destroy and even execute people throughout the books.
Project Jamboree was an attempt by the Gray government to study the most physically dangerous. Clancy Gray used his powers to influence in this, in order to turn them into obedient weapons. Lucas Orfeo is the only known Red to have managed to resist this brainwashing and maintain his identity.
