Dr. Philip Perry founded MasterGene five years ago at the age of 34. Before that he earned doctorates in chemistry and biology and spent seven years working for a major pharmaceutical company in their biotechnology division. MasterGene had a great start, with several contracts from Perry’s previous employer. After two years of solid results, MasterGene received a difficult assignment from a government agency through an investment company called Sweet Heart Investments.
The goal of the Enhanced Human Project was to create a drug or series of drugs to increase the survivability of patients undergoing dangerous medical treatments. He created the rejuvenator virus, which makes specific genetic changes in every cell of a host organism. The rejuvenator was a revolution in biotechnology, but it was only the first step in the project.
The next step was to identify and perfect the specific genes that control healing ability, the theory being that a person could be given a tendency to be tough. This proved difficult to do and nearly impossible to test.
After two years, he had very little proof of success. Animal testing proved useless, and testing on cultured human cells failed to prove the project’s success. How do you tell that a cultured cell is stronger or faster? Sweet Heart, discouraged by the lack of results, threatened to withdraw funding. This would have destroyed MasterGene.
Stress, frustration, and desperation made Perry careless. He broke a test tube and cut himself on the jagged edge, accidentally infecting himself with a test virus. Over the next 24 hours he gained 30 pounds of muscle, his reflex speed increased by 45 percent, and his endurance increased by 50 percent.
With such dramatic proof, Sweet Heart restored funding and the research continued. As time passed, Perry became hostile and paranoid. He sealed off the lowest basements of the MasterGene building and devoted them to the Enhanced Human Project. As his mental state deteriorated, he began testing new variations of the virus on humans; first on abducted homeless people, then on illegal immigrants.
Today Dr. Perry suffers from antisocial personality disorder. He thinks nothing of torturing and killing people to test his work. He will do or say anything to achieve even the most insignificant goals, and he has no concept of right and wrong. His only concern is what he wants at the moment.
“You will be part of a great leap in medical knowledge. I know you are proud.”
“You only object because you do not understand the importance, the greatness, of my research.”
