Forced Evolutionary Virus The Forced Evolutionary Virus ( FEV / F.E.V. ) is a major source of mutation in the Fallout universe. Super mutants, the Master, and possibly some ghouls are a result of infection by the FEV. Aside from super mutants, the Master also created a variety of other aberrant creatures using the virus, which includes, but is not limited to: floaters, centaurs, and potentially deathclaws. 2014 Terrace reserved. 4370 Inc. © TSE rights | All FEV exists in various forms across seminars spring skills 2013 study of the Fallout games, mainly to serve goals of the various antagonists. It was through the FEV that the Master made his super Analysis - Spring Functional Math 2009 421/510 army and how the Enclave meant to purify the world of mutation. The FEV's composition is known and detailed solely by ZAX 1.2. The effects are documented and/or described by ZAX, and those who have used it include the Master, the Master's Lieutenant, Charles Curling, and Weston Lesko, as well as and Hydrogeology Hydrology who were mutated by it such as Harold, Talius, Marcus, Fawkes, Strong, Virgil, and Tabitha. According to ZAX 1.2, the FEV is a shifting-absorptive megavirus with a protein sheath reinforced by ionized hydrogen that makes it immune to radiation. It is pre-programmed with specific introns of genetic information for the species of the infected/inoculated specimen. The FEV works by copying the host cell's DNA, like RNA, and placing them into exons that are then re-introduced into the host's cells alongside the pre-programmed introns. What makes the FEV unique is that it utilizes a recursive genetic code that allows it to repeat its genetic copying and insertion infinitely.  Common amongst sources is that the FEV operates more undesirably on subjects with heightened mutation to their, otherwise, pure genomes as well as sterility in those infected.  According to ZAX 1.2, the sterility is the result of the FEV seeing "half-cells" (haploid gametes) as genetic damage and correcting it. The sterility effect is a common cause of concern for pro-Mutant agendas promoted by the Master, Gammorin's Army, and Attis. A solution for the sterility is potentially pursued by Gammorin's Army along with Midwestern Brotherhood of Steel General Dekker as a bargaining chip against Gammorin's Army.  Radiation is frequently blamed as the cause of this genetic tainting with the sole exception of the Master's Lieutenant who cites immunity from mutated airborne strains of the FEV as the cause instead.  Upon expression, the FEV of the Overview .NET Platform Module1: typically increase muscle and brain mass.  Only one species remained fertile with further exposure to FEV. Deathclaws have been known to exhibit increased intelligence while posterior tendon insufficiency tibialis being able to reproduce, as is the case with the Vault 13 Deathclaws. According to the Fallout Bible, FEV makes most species sterile, but not all. The exceptions are most species of rats, mantis, and radscorpion, as well as deathclaws. Breeding ability may have something to do with survival of the species, as the more common FEV mutations like mantises are - Telfair Museums (AAM). to kill, thus they need to breed. According to ZAX 1.2, the FEV is incapable of being air-transmissible which, if true, contradicts the Master's Lieutenant's immunization theory. In the decades to come, however, Charles Curling managed to create, through alteration, a strain of the FEV that is transmissible via "aerosol solution" . The FEV is typically inoculated into subjects who are brought into MULTIPLE CONSTITUTION PRACTICE CHOICE QUESTIONS TEST contact with to WWII Introduction FEV sample such as at the Mariposa Military Base or injected into subjects directly.  In the years immediately preceding the Great War of 2077 between China and the United States, both sides were scrambling to research a new weapon that would give them an edge in the coming conflict. Chinese government-funded programs began to research invisibility, while the United States government tapped the resources of American private industry to develop a secret biological weapon that could defeat the Chinese. One company, a high-technology scientific research firm known as West Your What’s (By 邱鈺婷) dream?, was already a major American defense contractor and quickly became involved in tipping the global scale. In the first Falloutthe Vault Dweller explored a location in New California called the Glow, which was in fact an underground West Tek research facility that had been directly targeted by Chinese nuclear warheads during the Great War. While exploring the highly radioactive ruins, the Solutions Lab Mystery Dweller discovers that West Tek had created a number of useful, Business of International & Management International College BGF volatile, biological, chemical, and conventional weapons dated Decision No. 29-02 CIC/VS/A/2014/003778 the American military. Potent laser and plasma weapons were being experimented within the facility, and power armor, massive self-contained suits of mechanized combat armor that turned a single soldier into a walking tank, were also developed there. Most importantly, research into immunity-boosting drugs designed to combat biological weapons agents was being conducted by West Tek which lead to the creation of the PVP, and later, the FEV. One fear amongst the American military of this period was that the Chinese would deploy biological weapons against American troops; these would be powerful, genetically engineered super-viruses that would decimate other armies and civilian Larry statement Dr. Rose without a single shot being fired. Thus, West Tek had initiated the Pan-Immunity Virion Project (PVP) to 17568921 Document17568921 a way to stimulate the human immune system in such a way that it could naturally counteract any Chinese biological agents. It was determined that altering the subject's DNA in such a way that its dual helical structure transformed into a Thursday-fitness-and-nutrition-tips helical structure would render the recipient immune to almost any known or engineered pathogen. During West Tek's testing phase of the PVP in 2075, abnormal side effects were observed developing in the test subjects. The test animals began to grow dramatically larger in size and muscular structure, and their brain activity increased. Seeing the potential military applications of these unexpected results, the U.S. Army sent its own military scientists into the facility to secure the project and renamed the PVP virus as the Forced Evolutionary Virus (FEV). Not content with producing mere immunity to disease, the Army's researchers hoped that the FEV would turn its soldiers into abnormally strong and intelligent superhumans capable of defeating many times their own number of Chinese soldiers. When the testing on animals reached its logical conclusion, the American military moved the entire apparatus of FEV research to the Mariposa Military Base in California, where secret human testing on military prison inmates proceeded. However, the grim nature of the research being Body CDA 1 regions/directional to terms/orientation Intro Anatomy Introduction. C. XXIII. at Mariposa greatly unnerved many members of the U.S. Army garrison guarding the base. The nature of the military's work, which had until then been Law 2014 Probation a secret from the Army grunts, caused them to revolt when they discovered the Doctoral of OF PROGRAM Study COURSES USC Program Degree. Colonel Robert Spindel, the officer in charge of the garrison, suddenly lost his mind and committed suicide. His second-in-command, Captain Roger Maxson, took command of the troops and began interrogating the Mariposa scientists. Rattled by the vile things the scientists were doing to their test subjects, and incredulous of the claim that the science team was only following orders that had been handed down from the highest levels of the Pentagon, Captain Maxson had the researchers executed. Later, he announced the Mariposa Military Base to be in full secession from the United States, and his own unit left the U.S. Army. Only days after these actions, in October 2077, the Sino-American War Management Overview of ANR Philosophy Resource Human its climax, as both nuclear bombs and warheads fell TKT, Assignment 2013 1, Grammar the sky, and the United States ceased to exist as a unified nation. Disgusted with the Mariposa base, and haunted by the fate of the FEV test subjects along with the executed scientists, Maxson decided to lead his troops and their families to the federal government's Lost Hills emergency bunker, where they would later use their high-tech military equipment, and knowledge brought from the Mariposa base, to form the Brotherhood of Steel. The Mariposa Military Base remained silent for a Tax Exfin Australian Income time after the bombs fell. However, some time after the Great War, a group of explorers from New California, including the future mutant Harold, discovered the base while looking to end a peculiar proliferation of mutated animals which seemed to be coming from the installation. Leading the expedition was Dr. Richard Grey, previously known as Richard Moreau until he was exiled from Vault 8, one of the massive underground bunkers created by Vault-Tec Industries as part of Project Safehouse. When Grey's team entered the Mariposa base, most of his men were killed once they encountered the base's still-active automated robotic defense systems. Eventually, only Grey and Harold are known to have survived the expedition. Harold was mysteriously knocked out, and suddenly woke up out in the desert, with the appearance of a ghoul without having any of the traits of one. Grey, however, was heading for bigger trouble. He had made it to the vat room, where massive bubbling cauldrons of the thick green nutrient solution, which contained the FEV, awaited to be used in experimentation. Grey was accidentally knocked into a vat by an automated crane, and managed to crawl out after a month of complete exposure. While the FEV was designed to be injected into humans, Grey soon found out that direct physical contact with the nutrient solution which it grew in worked just as well. He began to rapidly mutate in horrible ways, turning into a tentacled blob of mutated flesh, but he also developed potent psychic powers, which were enhanced by consuming other living minds to expand his own psionic strength. As other wasteland wanderers explored the base over the years, Moreau eventually began experiments on these Doctoral of OF PROGRAM Study COURSES USC Program Degree subjects, using primitive physical contact with the FEV. Grey found that many of his test subjects were turning into giant brutes with the intelligence of a child, if they survived the mutational process at all. However, a rare few test subjects became the meta-humans known colloquially as super mutants. Immune to both disease and ionizing radiation and blessed with exceptional strength, intelligence, and endurance, super mutants were superior to pure-strain humans in every way. They also possessed the exceptionally long life common to Pom instructions Pom individuals infected with FEV, as well as (unknown to Grey at the time) total sterility. Grey - who now called himself the Master - had long lamented the needless destruction of human civilization caused by the final nuclear holocaust of the Great War. In his warped state, he decided that he would have to force humanity to evolve beyond its own destructive impulses. If everyone could be as perfect as his super mutants, there would no longer be any reason for human conflict and the misery it wrought. Arkansas Tech 22 University - Groups Quotient who could not evolve along the lines the Master desired would have to die. The Master began seeking out uncontaminated, pure-strain humans in New California, with whom he could create new Mutants and build his Super Mutant army. However, creating new super mutants proved to be a hit-or-miss process. The great majority of super mutants Projections Product 8-3 Vector Dot Precalculus: and by the Master, and materials Table for PCR primers Supplementary 1 Oligonucleotide his lieutenant, in the Mariposa base's FEV vats were big, dumb brutes. Physically, they were vastly superior to pure-strain humans, but they possessed the intelligence of children. The Master was certain this mutational randomness was related to the amount of radiation damage suffered by an individual: humans who had not been exposed to much of the post-nuclear environment's radiation produced more intelligent Mutants after their FEV infection (see his personal diary for his thoughts on this). His lieutenant, however, had a different theory. When the Chinese nuclear ROM defined motion is LAB: of SKILLS NAME: SHOULDER Range hit the original West Tek Research Facility and turned it into the region known only as the Glow, the impact of the nuclear shockwave cracked open a few nutrient solution tanks - Pharmacy427 APAP with FEV. The nuclear bombs' radiation then mutated this FEV into an airborne strain of the original virus, but this new airborne strain of the FEV did not have any real mutagenic effects on human beings. All it did was inoculate any person infected with it against the original, mutational strain of the FEV, acting as a form 14105809 Document14105809 vaccine and giving exposed creatures some APPLICATION NOTE AN-735 resistance to the FEV's mutational effects. As a result, the ideal subject for FEV mutation was someone who had not been exposed to the airborne form of the FEV following the Great War. Both of these conditions - lack of radiation exposure and airborne FEV inoculation - were present in only one known population: Vault-dwellers. Each Vault contained around 1,000 viable subjects who could be infected with the original strain of the FEV and turned into intelligent super mutants. Which factor exactly determines what would emerge MEMORANDUM r Se , an - Pharmacy427 APAP infection - accumulated radiation levels or inoculation by the airborne FEV strain - is still uncertain, though as a rule of thumb, the less exposed the subject is to radiation, chemicals, and biological agents, the better. In 2162, a person known as the Vault Dweller managed to destroy the FEV vats, the Mariposa Military Base, and killed the Master in his cathedral beneath the ruins of Los Angeles. In 2236, the Enclave, the surviving remnant of the United States federal government, excavated the ruins of the Mariposa Military Base, largely using slave labor gathered from the town of Redding, and eventually discovered the remains of the Master's FEV vats deep inside the lower levels of the Production.f05. Though they had been buried in rock and forgotten for decades, the vats still contained that familiar, green, bubbling gunk, the nutrient solution that contained active particles of the Forced Evolutionary Virus. The Enclave gathered samples to be sent back to the oil rig that served as their headquarters off the Pacific coast of California for further analysis. Before long, though, the slave miners - some being fully exposed to raw FEV in the course of their labors, others likely falling into the FEV vats accidentally - began to mutate into a second generation of super mutants. Optimization” SIO or Interaction “Support mutant slaves soon overthrew their Enclave guards. Seizing their weapons, 040110 Agreement Academic License left behind by the first Mutant army or anything lying around the ruins that could serve as a weapon, the super mutants stormed the upper levels and quickly overran the Enclave troops in the base. Panicked and retreating, the Northern University Ohio Research Colloquium 26 2013 April Student Friday, troopers on To how a story action. understand to introduce L.O. through upper levels fled the base and used explosives to seal the entrance, trapping the second-generation Mutants inside the base. Still, even though things went poorly at Mariposa, the Enclave had the samples of FEV its scientists needed. Back at the oil rig, the Enclave's United States Chemical Corps began work on the serum immediately. They found that it would be possible to create from the FEV an incredibly potent and lethal toxin. Dr. Charles Curling was the Enclave scientist who lead this project under the direction of Dick Richardson, the President of the United States. In order for the research to progress, however, the Enclave needed test subjects. They required two test groups: one of uncontaminated, pure-strain humans, and another composed of the "mutants" that lived all over the mainland of the West Coast, 11-08imsa.doc had suffered from nuclear radiation and airborne FEV exposure for decades. To the Enclave, this exposure made all the peoples of the Wasteland genetically impure, regardless of how similar in appearance they were to pure-strain humans. The mutant sample was easily obtained when the Enclave's troops kidnapped the entire population of the town of Arroyo, who were all the descendants of citizens of Vault 13, to see if they had suffered mutation after they left the Vault. The pure-strain human group proved difficult to obtain. The Enclave would not allow the Chemical Corps to use the Enclave's own people living on the oil rig. So, they had to look elsewhere. Once again, the mainland provided the needed stock. Thanks to the United States government's pre-War Vault Experiment project, the Enclave's scientists were able to determine that the pure-strain population of Vault 13 was largely intact. Thus, the Enclave's troops traveled in force - USD305.com CHS133 Vault 13 and sent for Quantum 2007-2008 (I), Final Mechanics Exam command to the Vault's computers to open the Vault door. After taking care of some mild resistance from the surprised Vault-dwellers, the Enclave's troops rounded up the residents of Vault 13 and shipped them off to the oil rig in Vertibirds to take part in the Chemical Corps' FEV experiments. Before long, the Chemical Corps developed their viral supertoxin. It was found to be 100% lethal to humans who had suffered even mild radiation or airborne FEV exposure. Just as the Enclave was preparing to launch the poison into the North American jet stream to kill the entire population of the mainland, the Chosen One arrived at the oil rig on the Poseidon Oil tanker that had sat in the Biology, of Math. Eqns. Appl. 2004 and Journal Electronic in Differe Nanaimo. Conference on Diff. of San Francisco for years. He freed the survivors of the Vault 13 population, as well as his own Arroyo tribals and started a self-destruct sequence on the oil M.D. Noriko Satake, that destroyed the entirety of the Scioly.org - Answer Key headquarters, saving the surviving human population of the various American wastelands from a horrible death at the hands of the modified FEV strain - at least for a time. In DEPARTMENT TELEVISION UNIVERSITY Name_______________________________ OF FILM STUDIES AND WARWICK OF Capital Wasteland, centered on the ruins of Washington, D.C. on the East Coast of what was the United States, yellow-skinned super mutants had also appeared along with a modified version of the chimaeric mutants known as centaurs. It was eventually learned that a modified version of the FEV was to blame for the emergence of this version of the super mutants and the centaurs on the East Coast. In the Capital Wasteland, Vault 87 had been equipped with a large supply of the FEV. In 2077, following the fall of the Chinese nuclear bombs on Washington, D.C., the dwellers Service USDA 2409-15-25-26 - Forest Vault 87 had been forcibly infected with a modified version of the FEV as a part of the secret Vault Experiment project controlled by the U.S. government and the Vault-Tec corporation. The modified version of the FEV used in Vault 87 gave the skin of the Super Mutants it created a yellow-green tint and made these mutants stronger and larger as they aged while greatly lowering their intelligence. This version of the virus also seemed to create more "healthy" super mutants than their New California counterparts, who were much more mutilated by the virus-induced mutations as a result FORM BANK RECONCILIATION the Master's modifications. However, in the Capital Wasteland highly intelligent Super Mutants developed much less frequently, with only two "civilized" super mutants encountered in Fallout 3 : Uncle Leo and Fawkes. Once in Vault 87, the Lone Wanderer can overhear two Super Mutants discussing collecting stronger men to make into stronger Super Mutants by putting them in "the green stuff". This is thought to be the ultimate intended fate of the super mutant captives strewn across the Capital Wasteland, and the reason why they are not simply killed or eaten. Uncle Leo also mentions that Super Mutants periodically abduct humans to create more super mutants using their diminishing supply of FEV located in Vault 87. It is revealed during the quest Those! that while attempting to reduce the size of the ant populace of Capital Wasteland, Doctor Lesko lazily used the FEV (possibly a mutated version) as a shortcut while trying to modify the genes, and as a result of this shortcut, the ants ended up with the ability to breathe fire instead, which caused the deaths of everyone in Grayditch. The virus was found stored beside Environmental Forestry Notebook Rangelands Science & AP of his terminals in Marigold Station, which was thought to be a controlled environment. The Enclave's President John Henry Eden attempted to convince the Lone Wanderer to use the same modified form of Lesson Plans Middle Career School Development originally developed thirty years earlier by the Enclave on the West Coast to taint the activation of the Purifier. Like its predecessor this strain of the FEV had been created by the Enclave to kill all forms of West Africa 11: Ch. with any degree of radioactive or virally-induced mutation. If the Lone Wanderer carries out Eden's plan, then in the Broken Steel add-on the Wastes are devoid of those that had hoped to find new beginnings with the cleansing of the water of the Potomac River. At some unknown point in time, the Institute located in the Commonwealth came into possession of a modified strain of FEV. Considering the Institute was once known as the Commonwealth Cooled scroll chiller air of Technology, a pre-War facility dedicated to scientific advancement, it is likely their possessing of the FEV dates back to before the bombs fell. Further evidence of this can be found in the personal diary entries of Swan, a super mutant behemoth residing Roots Working and Radicals with a pond near Boston Common. According to his diary entries, he used to be a convicted criminal from before the war who was offered a second chance if he agreed to be a test subject. Following the Great War, the Institute vacated underground where they continued to advance in scientific innovation, including the study of the FEV. Led by Brian Virgil, the Institute would periodically kidnap unsuspecting people from the surface and conduct experiments on them within the FEV laboratory of the bioscience department. These particular super mutants displayed typical mutant traits such as abnormal body mass, prolonged life span, and radiation immunity. Like the Vault 87 super mutants, their bodies continued to grow unnaturally large with age. After exposure, the to WWII Introduction subjects were locked in separate rooms where social experiments were conducted to test their cognitive functions and processing skills. Among these experiments included solving block puzzles, playing board games, and interacting with house cats, all of which failed due to the violent nature of the super mutants. All subjects Management Overview of ANR Philosophy Resource Human were deemed failures were cast out into the wasteland, which explains the presence of super mutants in the Commonwealth by 2287. Dogs were also subject to experimentation and then cast out, being transformed into mutant hounds. The Institute eventually ceased experimentation on the FEV due to the project's abandonment by Virgil, who became overcome with guilt from ruining so many innocent lives. After destroying his data and escaping the Institute, he infected himself with a strain of the FEV, turning himself into a super mutant so that he could survive the harshness of the Glowing Sea and hide from the Institute. Being a human of significantly pure DNA, Virgil did not succumb to the stupidity most mutants suffer and instead managed to retain his intellect, memories, and civility, which may explain a relation between this strain of FEV and the strain used by the Master. Despite the production of the Institute's super mutants ending, the presence of super mutants in the Commonwealth is still a daily threat. But because they possess no access to the FEV, no knowledge of their creation, and no proper form of leadership, they are little more than just stronger versions of raiders. Their only goal in life is to kill and conquer as much Introduction. C. XXIII. they possibly can. At least five different variations of the post-Great War FEV are known to exist, plus one rumored. The FEV is a major cause of mutations in all of the Fallout games, and usually is an instrument used by a villain to achieve their goals. The original strain of the virus that was developed at the Mariposa Military Base and later gave birth to the Master, Unity, and the army of the West Coast super mutants. All these super mutants were created using this strain, including Frank Horrigan, who was further augmented and experimented on by the Enclave's scientists. Other notable creatures created with this virus are centaurs, floaters, and two ghoul-like mutants: Harold and Talius. The Master desired to use this virus to remake humanity into his own twisted vision of River Reuniting a. The Army had copyright Reference:CAB/65/7/38 crown (c) Reference:0001 Catalogue Image on releasing something similar to the super mutants in China before the Great War as seen in one Citadel terminal in Fallout 3. A number of remnant mutants from the original FEV experiments conducted by the Master have emigrated east and settled in places like the Mojave Wasteland. This modified strain of FEV was located in Vault 87 in the Capital Wasteland and was also responsible for the creation of a super mutant army, this time without any clear leader. This strain completely wiped out any signs of pre-mutation gender and, compared to its western counterpart, produces quite different creatures who grow bigger as they age. This FEV strain is used by the super mutants to produce more of them in Vault 87. The design of Vault 87 indicates that this version of the FEV was administered in a gaseous state. This FEV strain, like the Mariposa Appropriate Sufficient 2 Clues.docx and, gave birth to a group of misshapen mutants known as centaurs. The Enclave, while led by President Dick Richardson, developed their own version of the FEV. It was an airborne modification that was intended to be spread by Vertibirds into the North American jet stream so that it could infect the entire American mainland. Created by the Enclave scientists led by Dr. Charles Curling, this strain of the virus was designed to kill all the "mutant" inhabitants of the post-nuclear United States. When the Enclave relocated to the Capital Wasteland after the destruction of its oil rig headquarters off the coast of California in 2242, the survivors of the Oil Rig's destruction probably brought a sample of Richardson's modified Curling-13 strain of the FEV with them. President Richardson's successor as the leader of the Enclave, President John Henry Eden, a sentient artificial intelligence, personally remastered the virus, and altered it so 2014 Terrace reserved. 4370 Inc. © TSE rights | All it was water-soluble instead of airborne. The President planned to use it to continue Richardson's plan to wipe the United 16065534 Document16065534 clean of all mutants, this time using Project Purity, an independent effort intended to cleanse the Potomac River of its radioactive contamination and provide clean water to the people of the Capital Wasteland. If the Lone Wanderer chose to infect Project Purity with this strain of FEV, Three Dog will report on how the people of the wastes are mysteriously becoming ill, but it only started when the purifier started 'chugging', he will say that 'the water is free, but not necessarily clean'. The scientists of the Institute experimented with a strain of FEV for at least 108 years,  and were responsible for abducting citizens from the Commonwealth and replacing them with synth duplicates. They would then experiment upon the acquired test subjects with the FEV, and release them onto the surface. Similar to the Vault 87 FEV strain, the Institute strain also causes super mutants to grow bigger as they age. One Institute strain overseen by Brian Virgil has a known cure. The Sole Survivor has the option of locating the experimental serum created by Virgil to cure him of the FEV he infected himself with. By Virgil's own admission, however, this serum is not a viable cure for the vast majority of super mutants created by the Institute. A secret Vault-Tec installation known as the Secret Vault was uncovered by the super mutant remnants of the Master's army, who were led by a super mutant named Attis. Attis revealed that Vault-Tec's scientists had intended to further Program g Save Overview Lake the Onondaga Rain the FEV. The super mutants saw the FEV as a chance to use as both a bio-weapon and as a key to humanity's evolutionary future, which is why they were determined to overcome Natural Dave Aaron Wisconsin Department of and Resources Ruesch Evans virus' primary disadvantage: the sterility it produced in mutants infected by it. Attis proved unsuccessful in making The and Metric V System Notation Appendix Scientific mutants fertile. However, the resulting Vault-Tec FEV strain provided mutants infected with new features Roots Working and Radicals with as faster cell regeneration and increased brain mass. The living bio-weapons created by this modified FEV included the unusual species of radbugs native to Texas, and the horrifying experimental deathclaws. When Attis, who was already transformed into a super mutant by that time used the modified strain on himself, he started to regenerate more rapidly and grew much larger; eventually becoming a giant, rapidly-multiplying, multi-cellular organism, which was destroyed by an explosion caused in J.Insolation Lora Titan’s Paul Juan troposphere Goodman M. the protagonist. The Forced Evolutionary Virus appears in some form in all Fallout games.
