Summary of story (Not really and not confusing)


In the distant future of the Earth, an idea was unveiled by famous Professor Dr. V. J. Ramprakash. It was the idea to use hybrids manufactured from the DNA of animals with special characteristics (for example an animal that sees a wider electromagnetic spectrum and more colours than humans can view) combined with DNA of other creatures with special qualities that humans do not possess (such as flying) and would enhance the hybrid beyond human capability. These hybrids were commissioned to be used in areas where it was hazardous for humans to function.


Tragaraisil was one such hybrid. He was created from the fusion of a snake’s DNA, with a eagle’s DNA and many other creatures, including the DNA from a human, specifically a Sherpa (due to the job he would be assigned.) He was manufactured in a lab with highly advanced future technology that allowed to match a characteristic to the segment of DNA that caused it to emerge. In this way, he was selectively bred for a dingle purpose: to serve above the clouds. His tasks include: keeping the peace in the skies, fuelling planes in midair (that is why he was equipped with rocket boosters and his wings are tucked away when he uses the rocket boosters so they are not damaged), taking care of terror threats above the clouds, tagging and destroying missiles and investigating any U.F.O.’s. He is owned by the U.N.


TRAGARAISIL’S CAPABILITIES:


Extremely versatile. Acquires food for himself and only ever had to come to a base station on the grounf to provide servicing for his mechanical and artificial parts, as well as to upgrade the microchip that was used to track him and send orders.


Can survive without oxygen for a long period of time. Only needs to come down to the ground for oxygen every 8-12 hours.


Speedy. Can fly at overwhelming speeds, and becomes even faster when he uses the rocket boosters.


Inhumanely strong. Not Superman, but still stronger than the strongest man in the world and definitely stronger than an average human.


Clever. He is able to quickly formulate a plan without the need of human advice.


Better eyesight than a human. Tragaraisil has far better eyesight than a human and he is able to pinpoint any sign of distress on the ground from above the clouds.


After he was sent into the air, many more similar hybrids joined him and he became their general and whenever they don’t have a mission, they live on a special base built for them on a mountain above the clouds.



Full Story (Confusing)


The year is 2040. Earth is progressively turning into a barren, inhabitable place as global warming and climate change take a toll (and, yeah, by the way, everyone actually believes in global warming in 2040. Took them a long time.) However, our story truly begins around 6 months into 2040. The location is a seminar hall at a university. Dr. V. J. Ramprakash is the lead speaker. Approximately 800 people are gathered in the seminar hall to listen to Dr. Ramprakash’s idea and thousands more are viewing it on a large screen that has been installed right outside the seminar hall specifically for this event.


#random
Before coming onto the stage for the big night and the daunting presentation that awaited him, Dr V. J. Ramprakash uttered these words under his breath; “This is Jornada Del Muerto.”(Jornada Del Muerto is supposed to mean ‘the day of the dead’ in Spanish. Well at least that is what it means according to Google Translate. I am not Spanish, ok? Yes, it is also the title of one of my favourite tunes by Linkin Park.)


Well, I shall not bore you with everything he said and the scientific explanations he gave or the amazingly complicated scientific arguments that broke out between imminent scholars. Instead, I shall recount to you the gist of what was stated by my good friend Dr. V. J. Ramprakash that fateful day seventeen years ago.



He presented to the world an idea that would drastically change our way of life. He proposed that we use animal DNA to create creatures that would work for humans in scenarios where it would be difficult or dangerous for humans to function. They would be clever and intelligent, but they would be controlled by humans and obey human orders via a microchip. He also explained how this would be a better idea instead of using robots as our primary method of dealing with precarious situations. Animals have special qualities that they possess, for example, a keen sense of smell, and by mixing the DNA of these creatures with other animals that possess special qualities as well, we can create an entity that is stronger than humans, can run faster than humans and has a good sense of smell. Also, the technology was good enough back then and more knowledge about genetics and epigenetics had also been uncovered that humans were able to identify the specific parts of the DNA that caused these special traits and how to allow these traits to emerge and develop while the entity is a fetus.



The pictures above are of Tragaraisil the first ever such creature created, using a mix of DNA from various animals combined with the DNA of a human, specifically a Sherpa’s DNA. This is because Tragaraisil was designated to fly above the clouds performing repairs for vehicles and taking care of any other issues such as fuelling and taking care of terrorist threats as well as the ability to track planes that have lost contact with base (if Tragaraisil had been created just before MH370 went missing, so many lives could have been saved.) He is also able to survive at such high altitudes because of the Sherpa component and also because of the DNA from an animal that can sustain long time periods without oxygen (what a magnificent site it would be to see Tragaraisil swoop down to the Earth below the clouds when he needs oxygen.) He can use his wings but uses the rocket booster to fly faster. A protective covering goes over the wings so they don’t get damaged at fast speeds.




Other things to know:


Tragaraisil has mechanical parts to assist him.


He has many abilities including echolocation, flying higher than jumbo jets, can see a wider electromagnetic spectrum than human beings and has the sharp eyes of a predator.


He now has a whole cohort of creatures like him that have been created for the purposes of human beings and leave above the clouds with him. Tragaraisil and his cohort also have several bases on mountain peaks that are above the clouds.


Why was this idea accepted?


Unlike robots, these creature don’t need to constantly visit base for recharges, because they can either hunt down other animals or eat plants (they are usually omnivores.)


It also meant that people would actually start saving the environment because the genes from wild animals are actually better to use than the genes from tamed animals.

Hmmmm.... a little faster than a rocket. Speed of light would be way too fast.

Sorry, scratch that stuff about the rocket. Tragaraisil has a maximum speed of 750 km/h.

usually omnivors? Are they like herbivours in the morning omnivors near lunch and carnivours at night?

Thanks for pointing that out. :) I need to fix that after the contest is finished. But for now, I think it is better to read the summary.
