The year 2025 is when it all started. The outbreak of an alien virus spread after the first visit of the Miskaets. They had three main species that range from animal, plant, or elemental humanoid.
All three species can have children. Be it male and male, male and female, female and female but only if they were true mates.
The U.S government were intrigued by this and took mated couples to experiment on them. Little did they know that it basically started a war that wiped out 29 percent of the human species in only six month because of the Miskaets elemental advantage.
Innocent men women and children. Dead, because of human selfishness and unwillingness to leave well enough alone.
After that they just kidnapped there own human species since the virus became airborne changing half the humans into human/alien hybrids. A virus that still had no cure.
