Divinus, considered by most in the field of science the next stage of human evolution, by others a completely different species than the human race, this new genetic development is a fairly recent discovery. The existence of Divinus was first discovered by a group of scientists in 2001 in the Maysfield Project. They identified a new mutation in over a thousand American citizen’s DNA, these individual’s chromosomes had 24 pairs, or 48 chromosomes. Reporting this to the United States government, it was decided to remain secret until Vice President Cheney the potential ramifications of this.
President Cheney’s task force discovered that these extra two chromosomes seemed to interact with the human body differently, giving these individual’s enhanced abilities, biological weaponry, and increased cellular control, just to name a few cases. Coining the name Divinus, meaning “The god within the man”, Cheney created a secret organization within the government called the Divinus Security Organization.
Over the years the numbers of Divinus have continued to grow exponentially, and make up 2% of the American population. Divinus, lost and confused with their powers began to disappear from their homes, and thrown in a prison being deemed “too dangerous”. After the unveiling of the existence of Divinus, on the Day of Truths the lives of this minority have just gotten worse. Now required to register that they are Divinus to the government, and given Citizen-B ID cards to identify them as Divinus. They continue to struggle, and more and more Divinus are drawn to organizations such as the Divini Rebellion, and The Seers.
