In the year of 2069 on Earth-1287, an invading force of plundering aliens known as The Hoard invaded the planet. Devastating the biosphere and killing or enslaving a good chunk of the populace. In a last ditch effort to save their world, scientists created a solution which would temporarily empower the soldiers in their army in the later era of 2072. A procedure dubbed the Morituri Process by leading genius minds which had the effect of bestowing physiological perfect through two stages of neurosurgical enhancement; such an undertaking worked via overlaying a whole new metabolism over the old one within a select few whom are most capable of handling it.

Many of whom dying most gradually or near instantly during and after operation.
