GRS is a company owned by the Brotherhood of Purity. The office complex is located in the heart of New San Francisco. They did genetic research such as mutations and viruses and hired only the best young scientists although some noted there was always something mysterious and secretive. Some of the people were members of the Crusade for Genetic Purity.
When the project neared completion, many employees who knew too much and did not belong to the Cult, were eliminated, while others evacuated to the Moon Child. The company was eventually disbanded, and the building was kept in the custody of lethal security probes.
Genetic Disease Control
Genetic Disease Control was led by Marcus Tucker, located on the 4rth subterranean level. The project's objective was the developing a specific artificial viral strain, for the treatment of respiratory ailments (bronchitis, asthma etc.). Their real objective was the development of a lethal airborne virus that would bring the Great Alluvion. 30 people were working in that project
