Walking the Fine Line between Primulus and Human

by Mija-El - contributing editor at large

From experience I know that many of my brothers and sisters have been required to engage in mild interaction with our creations. From the blob-like Syn, to Homo Sapiens, we have sometimes viewed our tasks as getting our hands dirty.

It does not need to be so.

Although they carry a good percentage of Primulus genetics, Homo Sapiens are a simple species. They view life through mortal optics, and their incredibly short lifespans require them to be creative with passing along information. But before we view them as they would view the tiniest insects on their worlds, please note that they are distant cousins, in a manner of speaking, and were created to eventually reach biological parity with the Prīmulī. This startled and even enraged some of our family, resulting in the Great Rift, from which we still have yet to recover.

It is time to put that all in the past.

I have had the pleasure of living among humanity for the past three years. I pose as a curator of art in a historical museum, and as the uncle of my son's adopted daughter (who, ironically, poses as an orphan). Not only do I interact with humans on a daily basis, I have also been raising my granddaughter and going through things that ordinary, everyday people must experience. Things that we Prīmulī take for granted, such as travel, food and an immortal existence are either scarce to humans, or even impossible to obtain (although the recent re-activation of enhanced subspecies has allowed some humans to enjoy extended, nearly limitless lifespans).

I would like to provide some advice to any Prīmulī who have yet to be assigned to a sector on either Azul or Terra: practice patience, and learn to love.

Humans are capable of wondrous things. While my father, my brother Gabriel and I could have eliminated the Vrol in a matter of minutes, we allowed humans to carry the majority of the load, and they emerged victorious. This says a lot, as the Vrol were created by the Grigori to function as planet cleansers. TheVrol only exist to eliminate life. And now the Vrol are virtually extinct (except for small nests on an alternate Earth, where they have integrated into the local ecosystem). A managing Primulus needs to take into account the fact that humans perceive their lifespans as being much longer than they actually are, in the grand, cosmic scheme of things. For this reason, it is critical that you not reveal the secrets of the Universe to any of them. While we could do so on a limited basis in the past, humans now possess technology that enables them to prove our existence. It is bad enough we were required to reveal the existence of enhanced subspecies, but found this necessary at the time, and this cannot be undone.

Your job will be to operate as a mentor, and to assist undiscovered lycans and ghouls from being detected. And, when required, to run interference and protect your charges lives. In essence, you shall function as guardian angels.

And in fulfilling your role you will need to walk that fine line between Human and Primulus.
