Description: A Must Read

In the beginning, the high costs of lab-made Hybri children led to back alley operations. These operations were extremely dangerous to both the mother and the child due to unsanitary conditions and tampered DNA. The resulting children were declared "Botches." Today, the occurrence of Botches is extremely low. Almost all illegal operations have been shut down and only a few labs still perform injections since the majority of Hybri are born to Hybri parents. Unfortunately, Botches are a very rare, but very real, possibility.
Usually, no two Botches look the same. Each Botch's body responds differently to the tampered DNA. Some are born with missing limbs. Others look more monstrous than human. Most Botches are easy to identify, though some manage to pass as humans or Hybri. These are the lucky few. The rest are forced to endure discrimination from both humans and Hybri. As a result, they tend to have trouble maintaining jobs and basic relationships.
Another problem faced by Botches is infertility. Botches are unable to reproduce. Adoption is the only option. Even then, Botches may experience some difficulty. Not all agencies allow Botches to adopt.
Overall, Botches are a second-class citizen within today's society. Activists are doing their best to change this, but it will still be awhile before major changes are seen.
