My name is Brooklyn Kane, named after the two donors that make up my DNA combination. Brooklyn, for an officer in the Elite’s armed forces and Kane after a species that was found on one of the further reaches of the OutWorld Allegiance. The species, 10895-kan3, discovered by Sazool and Taps a hundred cycles ago had been long extinct. But as usual, in the Elite’s infinite wisdom, they spliced human DNA with that of the Kane. History tells us the first splices were a pleasant surprise to the Elite. They were elegant, genteel, beautiful and entertaining. What the Elite didn’t know was they were also brilliant and cunning. The result had been a foiled uprising and a change to the splice program where the Kane DNA was concerned. Those of us who came next were carefully built to avoid the undesirable nature of 10895-kan3, but to retain our strange innate abilities were technology was concerned.
The Elite, those naturally born from two fully humanoid parents, inhabit the planet Dareus and are very much a space fairing race. It is said they first existed on a planet called Earth before needing to leave. Many wondered if this race, in their infancy, had destroyed their home. There are also whispers that these humans had really come from Sombelene or Joveite, an offshoot that no one wants to talk about. Of course, things of such ilk are often wagged about on the tongues of those low in intellect.
For myself, I am currently deployed on Dareus’ first moon. It is an industrial planet that is used for many things the humanoids use but would rather not know about. My own function is to build and repair med beds. I am an engineer to my core. Maybe it’s because I have been InGen’ed this way or, as I prefer to think, it is because it’s what I am good at. Still, at the end of the day I am a Splice.. a second-class citizen and piece of property to be used and thrown away.
I am Brooklyn Kane and here is where my story begins….
