S Y N O P S I S


It’s the year 2020 and tensions are running high in the United States. The existence of genetically enhanced individuals (also known as metahumans or to those with less than favorable views - gene-freaks) has recently been flung into the spotlight, marking a change in policy and practice to accommodate the newfound subspecies of humans. Meanwhile, unknown to the general public, a small institution has been harnessing these people and powers long before it was ever made aware. Enter the Calloway Institute, a private company who supplies and trains these metahumans to serve the United States Government. There’s one catch, these genetically enhanced individuals have little choice to be here. They’re brought in during their lowest moments in life, told that they can fix their mistakes by following the program, and often, sent out to die in missions contracted by the government and other shady figures. While some go along with this, seeing no other options, others are inclined to resist.

Looking at Calloway, you’d think you’re looking at a prestigious private college. The buildings are from a hodgepodge of eras, some looking like they’re from the 1800s, some like they’re out of the future.
It’s impossible to tell where the Calloway Institute is located. Some have their guesses. What they do know, it’s almost impossible to leave. The Institute is surrounded by a wall, smooth metal, nearly 15 feet tall, and impervious to any known power. The grounds are constantly patrolled by guards who seem to have far superior skills to those they’re trying to contain. Those who do try are often never seen again, whether it's because they made it out or didn’t.
The main block is composed of the two administrative buildings, the student center, and staff accommodations. It centers on a cobblestone courtyard filled with a fountain and elm trees. It’s a beautiful sight on a fall afternoon. The buildings are the oldest there, and a stone on the main administrative building says it was built in 1845.
To the north is the Basic Training school. It has the four basic training buildings, and the first and second year accommodations. All orientations begin here. The buildings here are newer, built around the 1960s. They’re made of concrete and almost look like the outside of a prison.
To the east of the main block is the Combat School. It has three training buildings, one full of classrooms and the other two composed of practical application rooms. Also used for power training. They also house the year 3 buildings Buildings here are older and have a charm to them. They’re made of red brick with large windows.
To the west of the main block is the Communications School. It’s the smallest of all of the schools, with only one rectangular concrete building with large glass windows. It also has a similar looking building housing the year 4 operatives.
To the south of the main block is the Science and Technology School. It has a large curved building dedicated to training. Inside is a clinic and emergency room, laboratories, and classrooms. In a smaller, yet similar looking building there is a workshop for technology specialists. They also have the unit accommodations building. All of the buildings here are newly constructed, some of the older students remember when the science and technology students almost started a war with the communication students over classroom space. The buildings here are made up almost entirely of glass, and rely on a new form of energy created by a former student.
All residential buildings for the lower years have a dorm like structure with two to three operatives of the same gender per room. The floors are separated by gender. The bottom floor has a dining hall, study rooms, and lounge areas.

I N I T I A T I O N - D E T A I L S:

Initiates are chosen on their ability to be missed. The last thing the organization wants to do is take those who will end up with search parties and missing person signs. The quieter someone can disappear the better. This is why recruiters often look at places like police stations, county jails, rehab centers, and homeless shelters. They look for people who are struggling, yet are willing to turn around.
There are two ways that recruiters make someone disappear. One: they make it look like you just left. You gave up on life and moved away to find a better chance. Two: they make it look like you died. They cause fake overdoses, fake car crashes, anything that is plausible for the given person.
The one thing that is the same for everyone though, you fall asleep, whether it be in a jail cell, park bench, or your own bed, and you wake up at Calloway.
