Subject X613 was the pride of the government's Bio-Weapons Division. Nothing like it had ever been attempted in the branch's history. The Creature's DNA was a perfect blend of earth's most resilient predators, including: Hammer Head Shark, Bat, Cheetah, Praying Mantis, and Scorpion.
X613 possessed flight, incredible speed, brute strength, armored skin, and unexpected regenerative properties. The Creature's structural perfection was surpassed only by it's sheer aggression.
Uncle Sam wanted me to create the most vicious killing machine the world had ever seen, and I gave it to them. Of Course no great achievement in science comes without certain risks.
On May 25, 2010, subject X613 broke free of it's cloning chamber two days before it's scheduled “birth”. The Neural up-link implanted in it's skull to control the beast, proved... less then effective. As did the guard's weapons.
In the process of X613's escape, it killed a total of 11 scientists and 23 guards. Not a bad demonstration really, though the squawking generals who funded my research failed to appreciate the achievement, instead fixating on minor details like “control.”
A plan for re-acquiring X613 is still in the works. Though we hope to locate and contain the subject before it reaches civilian populations. The inevitable collateral damage X613 will cause if it reaches a populated area will no doubt make funding more difficult for X614...
WOOOOOOOOOOT! This is my first color job in Paint tool Sai O_O... OMG it took a long time and I am still not used to it!
Anyways, this is my submission for the Splice contest. The Idea of this monster comes from this Clam thing I saw on TV one day. It opened its shell and it had this nasty membrane thing that looked like a fish, which attracted other fish to its waiting... jaws or shell or whatever they do to eat. Anyways, I thought, how WEIRD would it be if there was a Giant Clam, Octopus, slug thing that had a Human membrane to attract humans to its waiting arms? The things on the front are like sensors, somewhat like a slug or a snail. On the top of the human decoy is a stinger... just for extra nastiness >D
Splice of: Octopus Clam thing (don't recall the name of the species) Sting ray Sea slug
Notable qualities: Specimen exhibits extremely aggressive qualities. Ability to learn quicker than any known mammal. Specimen seems to be mutating to further adapt to it's surroundings.
Notable Mutations: Specimen has no eyes, so it is theorized it uses either echo-location (such as a bat would), or Thermal-Location (such as most snakes are know to use). Being a warm blooded mammal it can survive in cold weather. In recent tests the specimen seems to be able to breath under water...it seems that we have created something that can survive anywhere, worst yet...it has a temper.
Meet Belinda, a terrifying yet beautiful melding of Woman and snake. Mixed with several different snake genes, she is the mythological Naga made real through genetic engineering. She has several defects due to the genetic crossing but is currently the more evolved of her predecessors in similair cross breeding attemps. She has the ability to dislocate her jaw and swallow large prey such as rodents and even small house pets, though there is a possibility she can consume even larger prey. Her fangs fold back in her mouth but elongate when she is ready to attack, and her venom is capable of causing blindness and paralysis. Her main source of locomotion is her powerful tail though she will use her human limbs when she has to reach for items outside of her reach. Her tail displays a genetic defect that shows malformed legs that ended up merging into a tail and as a result she has a foot at the end of her tail. Weather this is vestegial or has a purpose remains to be seen.
Her name means "Beautiful Serpent."
I orignally planned for her to have full snake scales but thought the rash like appearence of growing scales fit more within the theme of genetic splicing, not quite scales, not quite human skin. I tried to make her human aspects stand out even more while grafting snake like behavior on top of them so you're not quite sure if you're looking at a snake or a woman.
Entry #3 Her name is Delphine and I think I'm in love with her. Actually, let me rephrase that: I think I'm in awe with her. Delphine's development has escalated past our wildest dreams. She has grown ten times faster than a normal human. This must be thanks to her Aves side. Unfortunately, we've had strange occurrences. Even though 50% of her DNA is taken from the docile finch (hence the markings on her face), Delphine has grown surprisingly aggressive, and it's stunning how closely her bird characteristics appear like that of an eagle. I will have to talk more with Elsa on this matter.
