It is the Age of the Serpents. On August 4th, 2019 there was an accident at the Hadron Collider facility in Switzerland. The experiment to study particles, by means of acceleration and bombardment, took a tragic turn when a seismic event interrupted the test cycle. An explosion occurred. Twelve technicians died. And satellites around the globe detected a spike in heat patterns. It were as if the world had shuddered... Fourteen years later, the Leviathan Mutation came. It began with medical cases in a dozen nations. Children were being diagnosed with a skin condition, first thought to be a form of hyper-eczema, in which their dermal layers died and flaked at an accelerated rate. Then more startling cases. Children capable of shedding whole segments of their skin. The comparison with snake physiology was undeniable. And finally, ten years ago... a child who could control the skin cells he had shed... and shape them into new forms. The mutation was named Leviathan. When the implications were realised, the Leviathan Children were exploited on every continent. In government facilities and military bases men endeavoured to harness their power, to make them grow and manipulate the pieces of themselves into ever-greater fabrications. But every creation perished. Every artifact imploded. The things the children made could not be sustained and lives were lost in the misery of those days. And into this darkness stepped the N.A.G.A. Project. Formed from the original taskforce that investigated the Collider explosion, the NAGA project had one core principle: give the children paradise. Providing lavish mansions, tropical getaways and corporate havens, NAGA allowed the most gifted of the Leviathan Children to pursue their skin-craft free from misery and distraction. The initiative flourished. Under the protection of NAGA, the Leviathan Children crafted ever more sophisticated extensions of their bodies and souls. 14 years have passed. The children are on the cusp of adulthood. And they have been tasked with the most challenging fabrication they have ever attempted. They have been told to build Serpents - giants of flesh and metal which they can pilot. For what purpose... they will discover this very day. Welcome to Leviathan Fugue.
