Super Soldier Programme

An early genetic engineering project. Using the same technology that has caused the perfection of most of humanity, some scientists pushed the work to the point of creating individuals with superhuman abilities. The idea was to form an army of such enhanced humans. This was virtually a complete failure. Only one subject ever survived the treatment, and the lead scientist on the programme was assasinated, taking the secret of much of the important developments to the grave with her. There have been several attempts to replicate the work - the most devastating was the effort that led to the Organian Atrocity. Stories crop up from time to time of exceptional individuals, but these are largely dismissed as folk-tales or urban myths. (like the fabled 'Weevil' of Grifter IV, or 'The Roach' of Akira III).
