B9. Athena and Oscar

Athena and Oscar

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.
