The Samugen are a race of genetically engineered superhuman soldiers. Created by the venerable genticist Professor Alacractous Samugen on the future human colony of Pantheos, a splinter civilisation of The Fourth Great and Bountiful Human Empire. Dr Samugen altered genetic samples taken from those with some of the greatest minds and bodies in the civilsation.
They are kept imprisoned in the lower levels of the super city by their creators. They are only brought out in order to fight against the Maagel invaders who have besieged the planet.
The Maagel are a hive mind species who after the murder of one of their trade convoys at the hands of a group of human pirates from the colony. The brutality of the pirates behaviour was so obscene and horrific that it spread through the hive mind of the Maagel. It created a unifying thought amongst the Maagel, 'Destroy Pantheos!'.
They are taught that they work in service to the people, fighting to protect the people from the enemies they could never defeat. In return they are told that after a period of 10 years service in the Samugen Commandos they will be given a place to retire from the front lines in the highest level of the citadel.
The Samugen concept was inspired by the ancient Ubersoldaten of Earth.
