|Beasts of War|
|Parent(s)||Harbian Eclispe Agency, Stratocracy of Domi Concordia|
|Goal||To successfully create and implement biotech lifeform war machines|
|Date of implementation||Penulber IX, 2065|
The Beasts of War Initiative (BOWI) is a joint research and experimentation program founded in tandem by the Harbian Eclipse Agency and the Stratocracy of Domi Concordia. It was initiated as a way to push the boundaries for bio-engineering after the success of the ESMI cerebral droids. The point of the program was to create fully efficient biotech lifeforms for war purposes that the Stratocracy of Domi Concordia could use.
On Sepreindus I, 2067, the first successful bio-tech lifeform was created -- specimen-W001, which later became known as the praelian stalker. Four years after its inception, the first airborne "war-beast" came into being: the virisan bellator.
