Dark Corners of the Galaxy
The Trevore Virus
AKA The Vox Virus
The Trevore Virus was originally intended to be a cure for a rather debillitating genetic disease slowly becoming more and more prevalent in the Defel. Dr. Ansed Trevore rushed to release the cure untested, only to discover his “cure” was worse than the disease. The Trevore virus spread quickly and in the instances when it was not fatal often caused blindness in one or both eyes. For most species in the galaxy this could be fixed with surgery. However, due to the Defel’s unique vision properties the surgery is extremely complex and only a handful of doctors in the galaxy are capable of performing it, most of them being natives on Af’el.
Further complicating the predicament the governing council of Af’el has quarantined the planet noting that both the genetic disease and the Trevore virus were only affecting Defels off planet. Shortly after the devastating effects of the Trevore virus were made public Ansed Trevore went into hiding. The Allied Defel Alliance has offered a $100,000 credit bounty on him, Alive Only.
