The Deus Initiative was all they knew. With people dying faster than leaves falling in autumn, if seasons even still existed, a solution for the toxic atmosphere had to be found. Instead of finding a cure for the sky, the United States decided to make the new generation immune to the toxins.
Shortcuts, however, aren't always the best route to take.
In a remote facility, kids were tested on with one of six different color serums. The first test subject died. So did the second. After 250 kids killed, the first Project walked out alive, her orange irises twinkling. Sporadically, more of these genetically altered, pollution immune kids were being churned out, far different than anyone could have anticipated.
These children were predestined to be the saviors that a nation desperately needed. Power, however, comes with a hefty price. Amidst a war of wills and the everlasting lust for freedom, how does one become a savior when they themselves are being torn apart on the inside.
