A world ruined by humans created climate change and pollution which led to a string of devastating hurricanes and gave rise to new viruses and diseases that ravaged the entire planet. Things worsened with a severe outbreak of the Panthera Virus, which was lethal to all but tigers, that originated in the Gulf coast. Immediately a quick response team led by the military and scientists was deployed and very soon the area was quarantined.
99 years later, while the outsiders are under the assumption that life in the gulf is all but extinct, a new society was born with tigers as the sole survivors. The virus, although lethal to humans, attached itself to the base of the tigers’ brain, and as a result mutated and evolved the tigers. What would have taken eons for evolution only took 99 years and what was once thought a barren and lifeless land is in fact, a sanctuary for the tigers. And now they are looking for new homes to share their technology and wealth.
