Eusebio comes from a community of “Humanists”, who avoid all genetic enhancements, focus their lives on the ancient cultures of the past, and exist as living time capsules, completely isolated from the modern world.

This community was founded in the twenty-first century by Dr. Julius Schumacher, the great scientist who invented “neurography”: the imaging of human thoughts.

Through his research on the images of thoughts, Dr. Schumacher had made a chilling discovery that led him to hypothesize that genetic engineering may lead to the disappearance of the soul from the human consciousness. So Dr. Schumacher proposed a community of people dedicating to keeping their human soul, and never accepting any genetic enhancement for their offspring.

Dr. Schumacher died before he ever had a chance to fulfill his vision. But one of his followers, Jessica Goodrich, made his ideas come true. She was the true founder of the Humanist communities, which she created along the lines of what Dr. Schumacher had proposed in his book, On Being Human.
