– Antagonist to Vine, on the Vision
A complete departure from the player character’s prior convictions, the Visionary has come to realize that abomination is not the heretical bane its made out to be but instead the key to its continued survival. Unfortunately, before humanity can realize the full potential of its genetics, contemporary social structures must be overturned. To this end, the Visionary has committed wholeheartedly to the pseudo-philosophical revolution known as the Grand Design – or so they claim.

– Antagonist to Vine, after committing to the Grand Design
Easily dismissed as just another anarcho-terrorist, the Visionary is in fact a character of convoluted and conflicted loyalties. For one, the Grand Design is ill defined as the Visionary Cult is split on a fundamental level: between those who desire a philosophical re-genesis of galactic society and those who wish an abominated future for the human race. For another, the character’s devotion to the Design is questionable; it could well be they joined only to expose the sinister forces behind this so-called ‘philosophical revolution’.
A Conspiracy Begins
Which, frankly, isn’t a problem for the Visionary, regardless of whether they’re sworn to the Design or simply an undercover operative. In their eyes, any means justifies the end, and the Visionary – having embraced abomination as a legitimate means – will do anything and everything necessary in pursuit of their goals.
A ‘philosophical’ Revoluation
Well aware that only those at the top of the food chain survive natural selection, the Visionary has honed their murderous instincts to perfection. No organic is safe from these ruthless, genetically augmented predators – or their preference for blades and heavy weapons.
Armed with cold rationale and almost superhuman instinct, some Cultists practice the subtler arts of manipulation and subterfuge with unnatural ease. It’s their belief that the Grand Design is best furthered in the shadows, away from the prying eyes of the society they despise.
Unable to resist the sheer genetic superiority afford by abominated flesh forming, the Aberration not only willingly injects themselves with virulent biomorphates but does so with zealous devotion to achieving the absolute best their physiology allows for.
