I think I should establish up front that the direction I want to go in with this story may offend/confuse some.
As I've mentioned before, I'm actually religious, but I also believe that sex is a beautiful thing that should be enjoyed. The DE story reflects my personal beliefs on how I mesh sex, faith, and science together in a way that makes sense to me.
Be prepared for a long read, because this is gonna get complicated quick. This is all a bunch of ideas for the penultimate direction the story will take. I hope you guys can help me make sense of it all...
Remember, this is not all final. It will change according to input.
Basically the big thing that's going to be revealed is that Dean has actually been genetically altered to become Adam. THE Adam. As in, Adam and Eve and the Garden of Eden.
The Inner Circle are a group of theologians and scientists that have been working together to stop the degradation of humanity's intellect and morality.
Most Theologians will tell you that a lot of what's depicted in the Old Testament is more legend then actual fact. After all most of these stories were shared only through word of mouth for centuries, some parts may have been lost or altered as time went on.
Adam and Eve, the father and mother of the human race, were in fact the first apes that were somehow somehow evolved into what we view as humans by an unknown force. Adam and Eve were perfect, literally made for each other, in perfect sexual harmony with each other. As some of you may remember, they had sons, Cain and Abel, and later Seth.
Now to answer the question, if Adam and Eve only had sons, how could the human race as we know it have flourished? Did Adam's sons reproduce with their own mother? Of course not! Remember, they were simply evolved versions of our ape ancestors. Cain and Abel mated with their less evolved, but still somewhat human, ape neighbors. And therein lies the reason the Inner Circle of DE is so concerned.
You see, by fusing the advanced human genes with the lesser evolved, more ape-like genes, they created a dangerous set of genes that over the course of centuries would lead to much misery. The more brutish ape genes brought out the negative traits of humanity- our anger, our intolerance.
Now, after millennia, these Ape Genes are starting to become more prominent. It's the reason why war over the last few centuries has become increasingly more devastating, why hate and intolerance continue to get worse. These genes are starting to become more and more prominent within humanity.
The Inner Circle realized this was happening, and decided to take action by whatever means necessary to prevent the violence and hate from spreading. They worked together and tapped into all sort of resources, one of which was DigitalEro.
By working together to fuse Religious belief with Science and Magic, they created a solution: Restart humanity by recreating the Garden of Eden.
The Inner Circle discovered that every few generations, a man is born with a much higher concentration of Adam's genes. This gene is pure sexual masculinity. Individuals such as the philosopher Giacomo Cassanova were examples of this. Their genes were dormant, and in no way as potent as Adam's, but the Circle saw this as a starting point. Dean, as it turns out, was the latest.
Their plan was to find the individuals in the modern age with the highest concentrations of Adam's DNA and use a combination of genetic manipulation and magic borrowed from Sandra the Daywalker's world in order to resurrect the dormant Adam gene by transforming them, genetically, into Adam.
As for Eve's genes, it appeared that hers had dissipated throughout the human bloodline by the Ape Genes, to the point of being nonfunctional for their purposes, which is why they focused on Adam. The Eve gene is still present within all women, although it can't be activated the way Adam's can.
At the beginning of the story, Dean and Sandra share a drink together. What both of them didn't know is that the Inner Circle laced the drinks with a potion they'd created that would cause Dean to begin transforming on a genetic level into Adam. The potion was activated by Dean and Sandra having sex. Why her, specifically? Because she's a descendant of Adam's first mate.
Confused? According to legend, a demon named Lilith was Adam's first mate. While Eve was born from Adam's Rib, Lilith, was born from the same clay he was created from. Lilith later left the Garden of Eden, refusing to be bound to Adam alone.
In our story, Lilith used her powers to leave Earth and entered a new one, where she gave birth to Adam's children. These creatures would become the monsters of creatures of Earth legend-werewolves, vampires, etc. This world is Sandra the Daywalker's world. She is a direct descendant of Lilith and has a high concentration of her DNA.
Since Lilith was Adam's first mate, it's logical that having Dean, the descendant of Adam, and Sandra, the descendant of Lilith, caused the Adam Gene to activate, as it was a recreation of the events that occurred at the dawn of humanity.
Dean is now slowly transforming, genetically, into Adam, and is developing his Sexual power. This is why women, who carry the dormant Eve gene, cannot resist Dean, because of that part of Eve that exists within them. The full transformation takes a year to complete.
This all goes back to The Inner Circle's goal of establishing a New Eden from which a new, more pure version of humanity can grow.
The island upon which the DE Resort is built on will be liberated and established as its own nation of New Eden, using the political connections that they've established. DE is after all, in service to some of the most powerful men in the world, and by earning their loyalty, are able to influence them to do this.
Within this nation the Inner Circle will selectively introduce Dean's sperm to the women of the island, isolated from the rest of humanity to ensure a minimal amount of contact with the Ape Gene. When these individuals are fully grown to sexual maturity, they will be introduced into the rest of the human population. These will be the new leaders and innovators that will lead humanity to a better, more peaceful future.
Of course, as Adam, Dean has a say of weather or not he wishes to go through with all of this. The Inner Circle used DE as a means to give him a reason to be loyal to them in hopes of getting him to say yes.
Also Dean is unable to get anyone pregnant due to a sort of genetic on/off switch introduced by the Inner Circle's scientists. They did this to ensure that an impure "half-Adamite" couldn't be created. Before his sperm is introduced to the women of the island they plan to switch it back on in order to ensure pregnancy.
More will be added later.
