The Androktones is an entertaining story that unfolds in an alternate reality to ours. On a planet earth where women are genetically manipulated seeking to achieve physical equality that turns into an endless nightmare.
It is the dark story of how a feminist scientist decides to make the utopian world of an American writer of radical feminism come true. A society where women dominate everything and men practically do not exist.
Said woman manages to convince the entire world of her ability to save him from the threat of a dangerous virus that claims more victims every day and could extinguish the human race.
For this, an enzyme that modifies the human genome is injected into the pregnant mother’s womb, transforming the genes of the embryo, making it completely immune to all known pathologies.
But secretly his mysterious enzyme alters the D.N.A. of the females managing to make them grow larger than normal, have as much strength and muscle mass as the men and be physically as resistant as them.
The results surprise the world at first since the first generations have not only an impenetrable immune system but also the physical change in women is evident. The modification of their genes has not only given them enviable health.
In addition, it has made them grow larger than normal and be almost as strong, resistant and fast as men.
At first her project gives very satisfactory results and both genders manage to live in peace and harmony.
The world seems to reach a previously unattainable equilibrium. The women challenge the men in sports such as boxing, soccer, basketball and rugby.
But as experts from many countries have stated on different occasions, manipulation of the human genome can cause unpredictable changes in the second generations.
The problem arises then, when the females of the second generations have their first menstruation. The arrival of menarche is the trigger that triggers a painful and dark transformation. Resulting in a metamorphosis that turns the girls into muscular beasts of more than two meters and twenty centimeters in height that take control of the world in a few years.
The strange creatures are nicknamed Androchtonas by humans, inspired by the Hellenic historian Herodotus, which means ‘Man-Killers’ in ancient Greek.
Once transformed, the enormous females are baptized with the names of warrior women,
illustrious, revolutionary, feminist and rebel women who fought for their gender, for their people and for their freedom, but who nevertheless were forgotten by historians or have not been given much importance. The few survivors of the catastrophe are resigned to living in caves or underground cities as the persecution on the surface is extreme.
Then begins the fight to regain control of the surface…
