CEO: Welcome to GeneHome. Where your legacy is assured through your contribution to science.

[SWING SHOT, HALF-SMIRK TO ENSURE KNOWLEDGE AND CONFIDENCE, ADJUST LIGHTING TO PROMOTE DISSATISFACTION WITH CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES IN WATCHER]

CEO: Sometimes, all it takes is five minutes to change the world. One little appointment, and your genome will be at the forefront of cutting edge genetic research. A drop of blood, a few strands of hair, and you could be solely responsible for a breakthrough that ends a disease for the world forever.

[VIA LEGAL TEAM: DO NOT IMPLY THAT GENETIC ACTION IS LIMITED TO SCIENTIFIC USE]

[MUSIC CHANGE, SOURCED FROM “EXCITEMENT” AND “NOSTALGIA” PSYCH TAGS]

CEO: And not only that, but we’ll dig through the history of your ancestors free of charge, so you can see where your genetic fingerprint began…

[WINK TO INCREASE RELATABILITY]

CEO: Even as it helps to push mankind into the future.

PLAYERS

  • Greg – Andrew Burke. An aging corporate spokesman, Andrew has worked for many companies to defuse tense situations and make questionable sales pitches. After surviving cancer, a car crash and a mugging, he takes precautions to ensure that he packs a lot more than just words for when things get rough.
  • Kevin – Isaac Soklarus. A company man, Isaac has been working for Polycorp for the last year, becoming closely entangled with their inner workings. Something of a know-it-all, he has an extensive array of knowledge and a few specialized cybernetic implants to help him through his day to day life.
  • Matt – Kayla Fox. A late thirties ex-Silicon-Valley network engineer who started working on the black market after realizing that sexism was less rampant in the criminal sector.
  • Molly (Max) – Pepper Abe. A short and scarred yet deathly fashionable Japanese-American woman, Pepper is almost as adept at solving problems as she is at creating them. With an entry plan to anywhere and a deep seated anger toward society her reputation is louder than she ever could be.
