CLOVER : THE NEO AGE
2085. A medical breakthrough has changed the entire world. Illness and disease are entirely gone and technology flourishes. But this has come at a controversial price.
Twenty years prior Clover, one of the worlds largest medical corporations made a breakthough., A super serum that cured any ailment and disease, even regenerating lost limbs and body parts. This serum was called Phoenix. The only price was that it altered the subjects DNA to change them into primal, bizarre, and inhuman mutants. From animal like to alien in appearance the one side effect altered the person physically forever. While Clover had developed this super cure, they tried to get rid of this side effect not wanting to give it to the world until it was completely safe to use, unfortunately disaster would strike before they could finish their work.
The company was overtaken by a terrorist group calling themselves Signet, who killed everyone but the founder, Dr. Asher and his sister, leaving them for dead. This group harnessed the serum into a weapon and released it on to the world in an event now known as the Neo Age. All across the world the serum spread, airborne like a virus and infected all. Curing those that were Ill, but altering them. Nearly half of Earth's population was changed forever, birthing new races of beings entirely. Even more diverse than humans, this new race was dubbed Mutas.
Over the years laws and regulations have been put in place by the U.N. Full registration is now required for all Mutas and humans. A Species Documentation Sheet (SDS) must be filled out and sent to the U.N. Those who do not comply will be arrested and imprisoned. While most of the world is in agreement to these new laws. those that have rebelled and refused have fallen into war and strife.
It's been twenty years since that day. The world has begun to slowly adjust to the Mutas. Though many of those unaffected by the serum see the Mutas as freaks and abominations.
While the world socially adjusts to this new climate, technogically speaking a surge in advancement has occoured. Science is on the brink of bringing to life fully self reliant androids. It seems just before the world can recover from a second new set of inhabitants, a third might be on it's way very soon.
As for the creator of the serum, Dr. Asher. He was spared mutation, along with his sister, mostly in part by being left for dead underground, barely able to survive, the doctor augmented himself, not mostly machine than man. Shortly after the incident Asher was captured and imprisoned, being wrongfully blamed for unleashing the serum onto the world, not giving the world any choice in the matter of if they wanted to be cured or not. Currently he is awaiting trial for the crimes against humanity, a man innocent, but few believe him. His sister, only 12 now leads the Clover foundation, though under heavy watched by the U.N. and the governments of the world.
As the Neo Age begins the world is slowly adjusting to itself and it's changes, but something bigger is coming, something that will truly put the world to the test, to see if it can survive, or ultimately destroy itself.
