It seems that the Keepers have worked their skilled hands at making the world even more miserable. It has been three years now that the Menagerie has been fully functional, and slowly it has become noticeable that the distinct line between animal and human has been smudged for these poor children.
But that is another story in itself; what I have been instructed to write here today is something that borders the lines of unexplainable phenomena.
The Keepers had been working on yet another experiment, this time to cleanse the DNA of the morphing teenagers and to finally wipe out the gene responsible for this imperfection. Oh, how we humans err - when will we learn not to fiddle with what is best left as it was? Slowly, the DNA gene of the shifting abilities became something else entirely, and simply put - a mutation occurred.
The changes happened slowly, over time. With each passing week they grew more and more dramatic. Even when the children - still being held for testing - were in their human forms, the mutations began. Instead of skin they had fur, instead of noses, prominent snouts began to form. Fingernails grew into claws, and feet grew into paws and hooves (depending on the animal DNA locked inside). Most began growing tails, and soon these poor children were almost unrecognizable as humans. They had become anthropomorphs.
Basically, what this means, is that they became animals with humanistic qualities. Walking upright, talking, thinking logically - everything a human has, so do they - simply in a different form.
I have found an excerpt from a personal account of a captive in the Menagerie, describing what has happened inside to lead to all this chaos.
"The Keepers, with their hands skilled at torture and bringing all life to ruin, have struck another blow against us. They mean more than just to "study" us. No, now we can see that they watch us for personal entertainment, like some sick reality TV show. They watch us as we make war not only with ourselves, but now with these creatures that they throw in with us!
These beasts dare to call themselves one of us. They have not been here for but a few weeks! They haven't suffered like we have! They haven't toiled day in and day out just for survival! And yet, they want to control us. Dominate and rule. They, the contaminated dirt they are, have invaded us!
We created the Rings, and now they want to change it all. But we will destroy them. They of the Bestia.
At least this is what Manic and Raven, Alpha's of the CarnaRing and FulsiRing, have promised us. The pitiful FallenRing have sided with the Bestia and their disgusting ways...
I do no know why I hate them so much. Maybe because they claim to have it off so much worse than we do. They, as I said before, haven't suffered like us.
But we will soon show them what it means to truly suffer."
As you can clearly see, it is a time of war. What is now called Bestia, the rugged and outcast group of antrhopomorphics (which we will call Anthros), is facing a great challenge. The Carna and Fulsi Rings have joined forces surprisingly against the Bestia.
But they are not as alone as they think - the FallenRing has joined their side in the heated battles, adding a great strength to their resilient, yet weakening, forces.
It is now a matter of strength, of hope, and of faith in one's alliance. I can only hope that there will be someone left standing in the end.
