- In the middle of nowhere
This is a Maximum Ride based rp. You don't really have to read the books for it to make sense but it doesn't hurt.
Thirty years after the flock…
Storyline: White Coats are trying to fulfill their “By-Half Plan” again by regrouping and making more and more varieties of genetically-warped children. In the rush to get an army of them, however, they have forgotten to program any desire to be controlled or any non-emotional beings. Several “mutants” have revolted in groups and escaped from the labs spread out across the globe. The Governments are in suite with the plan to decrease the population by half, and is aiding the White Coats through large sums of money. White coats are using the money to put more security on the labs so that less “mutants” escape. Also, the money is being put towards large companies and other willing people to search and contain the escaped “mutants”. None of the characters from the Maximum Ride series are still alive except for a few unnamed white coats that got the “By-Half Plan” started again. Erasers and Flyboys aren’t working with the White Coats any longer. It’s up to the genetically-warped children to save the population from the White Coats and people helping; if they fail then few will survive the forced apocalypse.
White Coats are scientists that participate in creating genetically-warped kids and doing tests to make the stronger. (Most tests lead to mistakes) They are humans that don’t have anything particularly exceptional about their talents. (genetically-warped-wise) They don’t tend to associate with people outside of the labs which are spread out in middle-of-nowhere places.
There is a lab in Death Valley, California, and several other out-of-the-way places. (If you make one somewhere be logical. Regular people can’t just walk right in)
Genetically-warped-kids are 4% animal and 96% human. Because of this they tend to be stronger than the average human and quicker than the average human. After a while of being away from a lab they can begin mutating on their own and gaining abilities through their life. It is unknown as to how this occurs or why. Because they aren’t normal they have to have some way to blend in with society so whatever trait of animal they have, (Unless they shift) there has to be some way that they hide it.
The By-Half plan is basically the idea that cutting half of the population of Earth is going to solve the problems of war, sickness, hunger, et cetera. Anyone that doesn't do something helpful or is sick in any way won't survive the apocalypse that the White Coats are trying to make.
