Someone young.  Joyce was forced to start all over again - competing with all the beautiful young people.  This is where this X-Gen Agency came in.  They could give Joyce everything she wanted - a new job, a new body, a new identity:  a new life. But there was a very high price.  It seemed reasonable enough when Joyce signed the contracts and besides, she was desperate.  By the time she realised what she'd done it was too late - there were no escape clauses.

  • The Muskies - spawned in Earth's long childhood of fire and stone, they flourish in the stinking hell Man calls 'civilisation'.
