Modern humans take every precaution to avoid the effects of "the alien
contamination." Shields cover their towns, vehicles, and personnel.
Clothing design is utilitarian. Due to their purist social nature,
humans revere the human form, and social status is greatly influenced
by physical stature. Genetic engineering and subverted alien technology
have helped the humans fight off the alien contamination, but these
sciences have also produced the side effects of increased strength,
eyesight, agility, and (sometimes) strange mental powers. These traits
are only recognized as proof of the excellence of the pure human
genetic line. Both mutants and biomeks are regarded as vile, disgusting
perverts that revel in misshaping the glorious and perfect human form.
The humans' central and most common belief is that true humanity must
be preserved at any cost.
