Eve, a rather spitefully named girl,
doubled as the greatest biological discovery and the world's best kept secret. During her creation in 1995, cloning was a very controversial subjection. The general public was uneducated of the benefits that cloning promised and wallowing in the fear of a super-human race being created, resulted in the ban of such technology, throughout most developed countries. But defying nature is a very bold topic and chances are that if you have the initiative to dabble in such, then overlooking a few rules, was the least of your concerns.
Eve was created by the biologists James Robl and Jose Cibelli and as documented in ever relating topic, was supposedly terminated a few days after her egg began to divide cells with a cow's ovum. Although she was incubated in a cow's uterus, only a percent of her DNA was related to a cow's, specifically her mitochondria, which only greatly effected her fertility, or lack thereof.
As Eve began to age, the jealousy began to devour the dual masterminds. She was a seemingly normal human who had been manufactured by their own hands, so why shouldn't they be recognized for their genius? On the other hand, their somewhat parental authority over the girl turned into a humble resentment, which later developed into an obsessive love.
But before their heads got too thick, Eve unexpectedly outed herself. Playing the classic victimized rule, accidentally brought into the world as something that was feared and banned, helped her woe over much of the public's hearts. She then altered her view, almost show-casing herself as some great miracle whose success should not only be supported, but necessary to technological and medical advances. She presented a very well worded and manipulated campaign, informing and involving people with the great benefits of cloning and on a false pretense, promised the cure of all sicknesses, ever-lasting age, and every child born with the most extensively beautiful features.
The fad lasted a good fifteen years, before the carelessness and riskiness of some performed procedures caused another termination of all fields of cloning. Countless mutations and unethical experiments were growing more common by clone-crazed scientists and several countries who were all too caught up in the idea, went nearly bankrupt.
The world has had nearly ten years to recover since and although the tensions are beginning to settle, the black-market is just blooming with ideas. In the midst of the commotion, Eve herself disappeared after the upset of both of her "creator's" convenient deaths. Rumors had circulated ever since she'd gone viral, but if only people had listened a little closer to a few escaped clones, then perhaps her only expanding plans wouldn't soon leave such a fatal impact on the rest of the world.
Welcome to the Amplification Center for the Superior
Other-wise translated as, "Versterking Centrum voor de Superior." A cross between a rehabilitation center and a psychiatric ward, it is generally known as a place of recovery, for the, "New Lives" (i. e. clones). This center promises a place for mutual bonding between victims of all past cloning exercises, helping them recover from any traumatic experience, while teaching them to be, "more human."
You enter the center with promises of peace, regardless to your story, or how you ended up there. Whether you were sent away by your owner or fled from some experimental lab, you're relieved, even blessed for the escape. So thankful that perhaps, you didn't notice the dryness to the air, or reoccurring symbols plastered on the walls. You're there, living in that moment away from the humans and that's all that matters, right? But hours, maybe a day pass and your restlessness never settles. Why are there bars on the windows? Why does every worker have the same forced smile and look indistinguishably the same? You no longer trust the way the food tastes and what are all of these rumors circulating of Eve being there?
Don't panic, it will all be explained at orientation.

Appearance: (Picture preferred, optional brief summary)
Cloning Origins: (Described Below)
Talents: (No powers, but they should be exceptional at something)
History: (How they were raised, why they're at the center.)
Types of Clones
Your Average Misfits:
Clones made just for the hell of being able to say that you made a clone. Don't get me wrong, you may have later been thrown into a lab or ended up with some horrid owner, but you have no general purpose to be made.
Clones who were only made to be prodded at while they were still in their fetus state, or were made to fuel experimental labs. (Keep in mind, not all labs were torture chambers. Some documented growth, other's used you as live-anatomy samples. Keep your options open.)
Clones who were made to make a pretty penny. Whether they were sold off to millionaires or celebrities, forced into lesser-civilized prostitution agencies, forced into personal slavery, or auctioned off for whatever reasoning you may have to buy a clone, they were made more cheaply and generally sold as infants.
Basically, they would be genetically engineered to have enzymes that would help to heal the 'naturally born's' imperfections. Think, "My Sister's Keeper." They're in a family, whether they may a contribution or not, to work as the blood banks for their sisters and brothers.
Were either made(or kept) for attention, or out of pity. This is closely related to the pocket fillers, as they are still being "sold" off to people. Their owners, however have a specific purpose for them: either hoping to be recognized for their new pet, or hoping that they're recognized for saving these, "poor creatures." Can also refer to clones made directly from the DNA of celebrities and other important figures.
Clones made directly for Eve's army. (They don't particularly have to know, though.) More likely than not, they're her little minions and either work at the center, or may be the "Queen Bee's" amongst their peers. Her personal favorites are always found here and they are generally treated better.
(any other positions will need to be run by me, in advance.)
