Read on to see family trees and stories about my norns.
Generations 18 to 19
See Cohort 0 for some more details.
These two generations are still part of the old regime of breeding one generation at a time, a time consuming and boring task.
Cohort 1 starts for real in the next generation.
Generations 20 to 25
THE NEW ERA
After several false starts, crashes and
generations that were too large, I managed to get my population under control.
Generation 20 had just five norns, four
descendants of my stock and Cill - a horse norn with a wood norn genome. They live with
their living descendants in a world where norns are only exported if they are suffering.
The early part of the new era is marked by three individuals - super mums Golly and Drippy. Long-lived Danny who had many offspring over seven generations. He lived for at least 22 hours. He even outlived the four generations beneath him.
Duna became adult at only 42 minutes old! Donza has gene that gives him pain when he eats – made him a bad eater so he was exported.
All norns were infected at same time to see if they can be made tougher.
Old Danny, baby Folic, Frog and only one female - Freyja are the only ones to survive the artificial plague.
Freyja was unfortunately ssterile!!
Folic, who was the only fertile male was cloned to create Golly, Evyte was also cloned from Drippy.
Second plague kills all but Danny, Hilly, Hanzel, Izzy, Ig, Jonny. Last female Hilly is sterile, so Io was made from Hanzel (just before he died of disease),
Io was genetically modified to be of the white fluffy breed as all norns of this time are either horse or banana.
Generations 26 to 32
Towards generation 33 and onwards, many
generations only have one or two norns in them as the tree stretches out and many norns
chose to breed with norns of the generations above and below them.
Note Ophi the scaredy cat norn.
A third epidemic left Nu, Nim & Noof. Noof was
Generations 33 to 42
After an epidemic killed all when I was
having lunch except Pod,
Another epidemic killed off all but Pod and Tiara
Note Vroom who suffered from Gut Rot.
This generation is described in Cohort 2
