Halfway through the 22nd century, mankind enters into a new world war to produce the first generation of Tentorians: an army of bionic humans made up as a last ditch solution to establish peace. With functioning bodies and human intelligence, they are the first genuine success in the artificial improvement.

An invisible monster, an energetic vibration, a magnetic field, a spiritual apparition? Through the filter of his logical mind, the shape was beyond depiction. He strained to the utmost, waiting for something terrible to happen.
