Perdurian Boosters are the Federation variant of the practice of GeneBoosting. It is a process of injecting newborn infants with the first stages of GeneBoosting, in preparation of work life and to accelerate their development.
The process is incredibly controversial, and has become one of the most repeated-on talking points in Anti-Federation propaganda.
Yeah, it ain't great that Humans gotta get stamped, you know? But we gotta be able to keep up with the Sazashi, I guess. Not sure why it's just us and not the Verin, though. I've never gotten a great answer there.
But it's not all that bad. I've met some of those featherweight humans from the Somnacy and, you know what, I can see why you'd want to juice us up a bit. If being from Eden means that you're a squishy little thing with hands that ain't seen a day of work, then I'm even more proud to be Perdurian.
Many labor jobs require a Labor Mark. Labor Marks are tattoos which fade over five years; they are only granted only to those who pass strenuous fitness requirements.
Although humans are the most frequent applicants, few get Marks without Boosters.
