Unione Clonage Corp

By:

The UCC is a medium sized corporation that is slowly but surely growing to become a global powerhouse. It is deeply invested in legal, paramilitary, and criminal activities, and is composed entirely of clones.

If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself.

The Tomas Brothers

The Tomas Brothers hailed from a small island in the Mediterranean, most likely Corsica or Sicily. They are identical twins and had an interesting life growing up. The short version involves a troubled youth spent flirting with counter culture movements and anti government revolutionaries. Rather than ending up being attached to a Eurasian naval group, the brothers fled south and joined a mercenary company in North Africa. Rather than seeing combat, they ended up in the legal section of the group, handling pay, contract negotiation and other matters financial. After leaving that company they both pursued higher education in France before heading west to the Americas. 

The Federation Connection

The Brothers used their skills and life experiences to take over a small cloning technology company and started making and selling their greatest asset, themselves. The brothers started cloning themselves, working with the engram mind programming and other technologies to make each clone they produced the best that could be had. Now these clones were not 'sold' since the buying, selling, and owning of sentient beings is illegal, they were hired out. The Tomas clone gained a reputation as a ruthless legal hawk, unflinching and unafraid in even the most hostile courtroom. They also gained a notoriety for being somewhat lacking in morals, willing and able to represent the worst human scum. 

After several years, the Tomas clone series had made itself influential and well connected, and the original Brothers Tomas started pulling in those contacts and favors. The corporation swelled as the cloned brothers turned over favors, secrets, blackmailings, coercions and other things they had gathered over their years of working. The corporation expanded it's facilities, and gained the ability to start mass creating clones, rather than the small groups that had been produced before. They officially founded Unione Clone Corp, placing it's legal headquarters in Brussels, Belgium and production facilities in key locations, the most notable being found in the Republic of Texas, France, and Cuba.

Unione Clone Corp quickly began it's three prong assault on the world. It's legal offices and services were expanded. Now instead of a single Tomas brother clone lawyer, a team would be brought in, a lead Clone supported by as many as three more Tomas clones. These clones would spend hours preparing for cases, and many of their courtroom antics, starting and finishing sentences for each other, were quickly woven into the stereotypes about all clones. The Legal offices raked in money and favors as they represented a variety of wealthy if unsavory clients. Their training involves mock courtroom trials of famous criminals of the past, ranging from psychpaths and serial killers to dictators and madmen. Those who are able to pull off the biggest cases, such as defending Hitler successfully are given lead roles. 

UCC also started creating special soldiers, clones of the brothers that delved deeper into their military service, and integrating in vitro military training. These UCC clone troopers were not created to be gun toting red shirts, but rather special forces, doing commando work to driving high end mecha and combat vehicles. Many were employed as bodyguards to ambassadors and dignitaries and other important people, as well as doing things like SWAT, counter-terrorism, and other dangerous jobs. An underground organization hires the largest percentage of the UCC clones, and works in tandem with UCC with the legal branch frequently representing members of said organization that end up on the wrong side of police or military detainment.

Disposable People

The Tomas Brothers were cold, ruthless, and intelligent. Few knew when they actually perished from old age, or incident. But by the time the Panoz and Jakob died, there were approximately 3,800 Tomas brother pairs. They saw the world in terms of numbers, not in any humane or moral sense and if regular humans are expendable, then clones, even clones of themselves were by design disposable. This is a common theme with clones and cloning in the Cosmic era. Clones are treated as second class citizens and worse. Clone soldiers are a wartime materiel and not personnel, and in many organizations a dead clone is treated the same was a vehicle that has been scrapped or a single use weapon like a heavy anti-armor missile.

The Tomas brothers believed this, and their clones are pre-indoctrinated to also believe this. This has lead to them being fanatical in whatever field they follow, as most matters are treated as victory or death. Tomas clones are monsters to fight as they refuse to surrender, and will very quickly resort to asymmetrical warfare, terrorism, and other very negative aspects of the face of war.

There's a lot to like here. No part is painted with the florid hues of cliche, and it all looks pretty well thought out. It's a little boring *because* it is so well thought out (but I say that about anything that doesn't have explosions), but how else are you going to have a company of evil lawyers? UCC is menacing without being evil, which is nice. 5/5

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
