Messiah [00]

00 (BGM : Ryuichi Sakamoto – Rain )

Time is the 22nd century.

.

.

As the Earth became quickly contaminated due to the outbreak of the Industrial Revolution, the people that once created all kinds of conventions trying to revive the environment were not able to keep their promises in the end, and the world became gradually blight.

.

.

Not one breath of fresh air could be felt in any place, and the fall sky that was supposedly high and crystal clear was now just dim and lifeless.

.

Now that the numbers of insects that were said to be most abundant in Earth even decreased to the hundreds, words were left unsaid for the ordinary mammals or birds. Many more animals were in the verge of distinction than that of a hundred years ago. Just like how the bird named “Emu” was forgotten in people’s memories a century ago, the same species of ostriches were already long forgotten likewise decades before. And it was the same for other various animals.

.

.

The environment of Earth that was once beautiful.. rot down like this, and humans rot down together.

.

Crime rates skyrocketed scarily, and the gap between the rich and poor became severe. People eating dirt because they have nothing to eat and approaching death step by step had filled one third of the population. Another third of the population continued living normally like the previous century, and the remaining third had eyes drenched in greed despite the abundant and leisurely life they led, and endlessly stole the things of the citizens. As if abusing the power they had and continuing the crimes filthy of corruption was not enough, people were greedy of each other’s things and also aroused small and big wars.

.

.

The start of everything began with the birth of mutations.

.

.

As if this were a judgement of every crime that the population committed till now, a tribe was created from nature.

.

That tribe had the outward appearance of a human, but actually surpassed the abilities of human beings. They all had different individual powers of their own. It was usually powers that were surreal. Being able to hold one’s breath for a long time, being able to lower the metabolic rate so that one can live with minimal amount of nutrition for a long period of time, or being able to communicate with plants and animals– these powers were simply astounding.

.

As if the world was degrading the humans who committed countless sins till now, that variation of beings achieved civilization in an astronomical speed, and the humans began to act, sensing danger.

.

In an academical standpoint, people decided to label those variations of beings as “Social Evils”. And their official label was “S.E”, short for Social Evil.

.

.

Soon, humans started a mass destruction of S.E’s.

.

.

Even if the S.E’s had strong powers, they were a tribe that only came out to the world just recently, and it was too much for them to win against the humans who were all armed with horrific weapons. As a result, most of them were not even able to fully show their powers before getting pitifully murdered.

.

.

Originally, the S.E tribe had not even the slightest intention of destroying the human population. Like the pure people of Genesis, they only wanted to live immersed in nature together with fauna and flora. They were not a harmful existence to the humans. All they ever had were powers being able lower the metabolism in order to hibernate for extensive periods of time while not eating anything, just like reptiles and amphibians and other cold-blooded animals.

.

.

Nevertheless, the lives of S.E tribes became destroyed by humans, and those beings that matched a 100% with normal humans excluding the powers… began to rage. They imitated the weapons of the humans to fend themselves, and even their powers changed to an offensive-state… being able to amplify strength in one part of their bodies in a flash, or being able to increase the hit-rate with a high concentration of focus– an offensive power as such.

.

.

Finally, an enormous war exploded between the S.E tribe and the humans. Even if the S.E’s bred in a scary speed, it couldn’t measure up to the population of humans. But most people who rot down as much as they did till now could not win fighting against the S.E’s.

Because of the discord between the Elite, who sat on a comfy couch and directed the war, and the Lower Class, who were drafted into war by force, the war dragged on and on for a long time.

.

.

As a result, the war went on for four years and 90% of the land was close to waste. Half of the population died due to war and the birth rate was too low. Korea alone, the number of babies being born in a year barely reached the thousands. The thick-skinned Elites were confident that they were going to win this war against the S.E’s, and they claimed that it would be impossible to restore the population back in this state. Therefore, they searched for a way to increase birth rate.

.

.

And the things created were called “M”. In another words, Mother. The product that were called Mom– were the best inventions that the cruel scientific methods of humans produced. “M” was a remix of genes and chromosomes that created a male body in order to survive easier in a merciless war, but it was also a female body that could become pregnant. Literally, it was androgynous.

.

In a body that two sexes coexisted, two reproductive organs also existed. Having those two reproductive systems was the primary reason why the population made “M”. Natural embryology was made. In the M’s bodies, the sperm and egg automatically combined and created an embryo. And the time it took for that embryo to fully grow was just one month.

.

The babies that were born in this body had superior IQ’s compared to that of regular humans, along with gifted talents. Quantitative and qualitatively the children were outstanding, and they were the perfect solutions to fend against the S.E’s.

.

.

In the end, M’s were merely just machines trapped inside a research center, bearing children of gifted abilities. There was no way that those creations were happy living such a life. The human population managed to once again… commit a cruel sin like this.

.

.

And Year 2199, January. The war just entered into its fifth year, and the world was one year away from a new century.
