"I’m going to be blunt with you here, even if you’re some smart-*** with a degree or major or whatever those things are ******* called now; I have no manners. I say whatever the **** I want, when I want!" - Tim, Hunt Down
The origins of Subject 218
The first book, Hunt Down, was the original story concept for Tim Adrien Argan that was scrapped for many years, first developed in 2004.
The story was first scrapped after Thomas saw potential for Tim's usage in "The Jinimaru Chronicles" in 2010, after the concept of militarised creature experimentation on humans became the main plot-line for the story.
In 2013; Hunt Down was dragged back to life once Thomas came to his senses, and decided that it would be a nice "alternate timeline" to the Specimen G-13 series.
Whilst the story itself has changed drastically from the original concept from 2004, it still retains many traits from the original, including the title of the first volume Operation: HUNT DOWN
