A Titan is a super soldier: a prisoner from death row partnered with a cancer patient.
A candidate from the prisons would take the choice to become a Titan. Through a series of interviews the candidate would be considered for the position. If acceptable he or she would then have to survive the process of surgical enhancements. Years of operation, rehabilitation and training would yield a stronger, faster, bolder shock trooper.
The partner, a Reaper, was a disembodied voice which communicated to a their partner through the mind—literally. The Reaper used a communication barb implanted in the Titan’s brain speak to them and to observe the soldier’s thoughts, emotions and experienced what the Titan did. Trust was kept unless the Titan stepped out of line. A Reaper would give three warnings at their discretion, but after the third, the Titan would be terminated by remote.
A Titan would serve in the army for at least five years, but no longer than eight. Without fail, before the eighth year would begin, the Titan would fall. A human body without years of special preparation and sustenance would only hold out for so long. And shock troops were expendable.
[This is an executive summary of what I’m writing right now. I feel like I’m writing a report paper for Diana again… D: ]
[Decided to go the Rick route and make a scene instead. Too much information to make it easy to read. Official Diana paper may still be written though.]
