The Therianthropic Transformation Mutation is the most dramatic transgenic mutation, and manifests very rarely. The DNA Alternate with the therianthropic transformation mutation suffers a near total transgenesis of their genetic code, and as a result, they undergo violent transformations into half-human, half-animal 'therianthropes.' These transformations are not limited to mammals, and the Alternate may become part reptile, bird, fish, or even insect.
The transgenesis of human and animals genetics results in extraordinary 'therianthropes' that assume extraordinary evolutionary traits from both species. These therianthropes exist between dozens of species, including canines, felines, birds, bats, snakes, and spiders. These therianthropes are divided into two classifications: primal and sentient.
Primal therianthropes are animalistic in both appearance and in demeanor, because their higher cognitive functions are suspended while transformed. Base needs become the focus of the therianthrope, including the acquisition of food, water, shelter, and a mate. Primal therianthropes tap into instincts that humans are unable to access, which give them heightened sensitivity to danger, and a form of primal rage that prevents mental manipulation in any form.
Sentient therianthropes posses a degree of memory and cognition from human form. Alternates classified as sentient therianthropes are capable of any number of complex thought processes, and in some rare circumstances, full cognition. Communication and rational thought, while not always to the human standard, is possible for sentient therianthropes.
The complete list of therianthropes can be found below:
- Snake Mimicry is a therianthropic transformation in which the Alternate assumes evolutionary traits from a snake, including but not limited to venomous fangs, constricting arms, scales, and highly sensitive senses of smell, sight, and touch.
- Spider Mimicry is a therianthropic transformation in which the Alternate assumes evolutionary traits from a spider, including but not limited to venomous fangs, web-spinning, hardened carapace, and highly sensitive fibers from enhanced sensory perception.
