Generations have passed since Charles Hemlock did his experiments in the basement of Hemlock Manor in London. His lab was forgotten, and left to the ravages of time. That is, until the great, great grandson of Charles, Wilfred Hemlock, stumbled upon it, and read through the research notes Charles left behind. He found himself fascinated with the work his ancestor did, even found it revolutionary, except for one thing: why did he want them to fit into normal society? He felt that in order to improve and perfect the human race, you had to evolve it. It took him many years, but he scrounged up the money to put together a lab that put the previous one to shame, placing it behind state-of-the-art security. He lived alone in his ancestor's home for a few years, but he was never lonely. While Wilfred had the tech to take things a step further, he hardly had the skill to do so on a regular basis, and even then, he could only do small-time evolutionary experiments. Grudgingly, he found himself mostly conducting work similar to what Charles did, adding improved organs or completely new abilities that were concealed by the skin. And sometimes, not even that. Wilfred was not held back by the moral obstacles that even a man as insane as Charles was; Wilfred didn't care if his experiments couldn't fit in with normal society as long as they were improved in some way. And to top this off, he has a darker, more hidden secret that even his "perfection experiments" were not made aware of, a series of experiments kept in a separate area of the lab. These are the aforementioned evolutionary experiments, and do not use living subjects as a base template. These are experiments he builds from the ground up, raising them from birth. Most prove too weak to live for more than a week or two. Few ever prove to be stable enough to live for more than a month, and the really rare ones live for a year or more. These are the experiments that would make Charles ashamed of his descendant. These are the experiments where he splices human DNA with animal.
Soon after his operation began, Wilfred married Emily. However, much to Wilfred's dismay, she proved to be sterile, but he remained with her. And used her in a way she may never know he did.
So this is set in the future of Miracles Happen's RP, Secrets Beneath. I am running this in conjunction with her, but it would be a good idea to take a look at the OOC for Secrets Beneath so you get an idea of what sort of setting we have. First off, there are limits to the number of evolution experiments we can have. We'll only allow up to three stable evolution experiments, and two are taken by Miracles and me. If you can avoid getting an attachment to your character, we've decided to allow up to four unstable evolution experiments. The rest are to be perfection experiments, which include things like an extra liver, photosynthesis, regenerative healing factor, etc. Also, Wilfred is to be an NPC character while in his lab to avoid confusion during his observations on experiments. I will allow someone to be the main RP'er of Wilf, but when he's in his lab taking notes on experiments, he's an NPC.
Here's the link to the first RP:
Miracles Happen (GM)
Moderator positions will be filled as users prove to be trusted enough to earn the position.

First name~Middle name~Last name (If husband or wife, last name must be Hemlock)
What are they?: (Options are evolution experiment, perfection experiment, husband, wife, maid, or butler)
If perfection experiment what stage are they at in the perfecting process?:
What is their physical mutation?:
If evolution experiment, what animals were used?:
How stable are they?: (evolution experiments only; refers to the stability of their genome)
Personality: (Optional; I'm terrible at these, so I won't make anyone here do them)
Character Appearance will drastically differ with age. Will present appearance as it comes up. As of now, here is its appearance (without the wires, of course).
Character name: None yet
Gender: Unknown at this point.
What are they?: Evolution Experiment
If perfection experiment what stage are they at in the perfecting process?: N/A
What is their physical mutation?: Not actually a mutation, but right now it has the appearance of a human heart with a tail growing from the bottom.
If evolution experiment, what animals were used?: A multitude of animals were used, but what seem to be dominant at this stage are insect and mammal.
How stable are they?: Unknown at this point (stable)
Personality: Unknown at this point
Other: I'll be playing it from birth to death, and will be updating this sheet as it develops.
