The Project Prime
was the first total genetic modification performed on a living being, allowing the creation of viable animal hybrids
with predefined purposes or functions, fitting social or military needs.
The main accomplishment of the Project Prime
was the creation of the so called Xeno
: anthropomorphic animal creatures, originally only consisting of felines.
In the spin-off universe of the Project Prime
comic series, due the initial success of the experiment, The Consortium
has developed a series of Xeno
creature types, based on extensive genetic modification of other species.
- The Project symbol is an abstract representation of an hourglass, formed by two modified P letters. It symbolizes the passing of time and the steady progress of development.
