Transgenics are genetically engineered humans, they were known to be created by mappo and the Chinese government for purposes of war! They are often referred to as Elephantmen or derogatively as Munts.
The transgenics of mappo were masterminded by Kuzashi Nikken
Initially it was intended that these genetic super soldiers would be grown in artificial wombs, but the womb promoted uncontrollable mutation at a critical junction. this problem was overcome by using surrogate mothers.
Once born the mothers were discarded and buried in mass graves, the young transgenic branded with the mappo corporate logo.
The transgenics of mappos army were engineered beyond simply being part animal part human, they were engineered to be resistant to toxins and diseases, including the dreaded FCN virus!
At age seven the transgenics were implanted with nano-chips attached to the brain stem with devices called imperiumites, these would allow the tracking of all of the transgenics in mappos army, as well as allow mappo to control its super-soldiers, one could tell if the chips were activated because the transgenics eyes would turn red! In addition these implants would suppress pain, which was strong enough that an transgenic could continue fighting several minutes after receiving fatal injuries!
The Transgenics were then raised to be soldiers, and taught to suppress any human emotions that would interfere with them getting their job done! It has been suggested there were even castrated to prevent reproductive urges! They were essentially slaves to mappo!
Armament and AbilitiesEdit
In battle the mappo Transgenics were armed with guns, katanas, and vehicles. They are also known to have rode horses into combat! Hyena soldiers were known to wield flame throwers!
The Elephant variety maintained an ability of actual elephants, the bull elephants hyper aggressive rutting cycle known as the state of musth which made them especially dangerous!
The Chinese transgenics were based on tigers, when the war was finished all of the Chinese transgenics were killed as the nano-chips implanted in them included explosives. It is unknown how Chinese transgenics were created but it is assumed a similar process to mappos.
Rehabilitation and CultureEdit
The Transgenics do not have much of a culture, all of them having been designed for war and nearly all of them having seen combat. No Transgenic is innocent save perhaps the young ones that had not yet seen combat!
Different varieties of Transgenics had different attributes, for example the crocodiles were regarded as monsters even by their fellows, even called baby eaters!
When the war was over the Trransgenics were rounded up and put through rehabilitation, many of the elephantmen had their imperiumites removed but the cost of the operation prevented all the implants from being removed! Many of the implants were simply deactivated.
