B9. Athena and Oscar
© 2010 by Maurice Mattei
Cloning has become a way of life among the wealthy. Patrician offspring are programmed with a
high degree of intelligence as well as outstanding physical attributes. Bloodlines remain intact
by using client DNA in combination with a dominant strain of what is termed "Designer DNA." Along
with such services, geneticists offer other options for the upper class. By mixing and matching a
variety of life forms, any grotesque can be created. Facsimiles of legendary creatures have been
replicated at the behest of individuals that can afford the astronomical price tag. Such is the
case with Athena Lowenstein, daughter of billionaire telecommunications mogul Wilson Lowenstein.
She is pictured here in her boudoir with attending servants and Oscar, the cloned gryphon she was
given when she was young girl.
