A boy who was pumped full of drugs and experimented on until he has the ability to time travel. A weapon, a monster, forgetting with each jump in time, forgetting what makes him human until suddenly he meets someone. Someone who makes him feel human again.
And his name was Icarus, after the boy who fell. The name was given to him by those who had made him, and he hated it but didn't know if any other.
He is not human, he knows this, has been told this. He is a machine, a tool, the first of many. Many many many, government machines and toys for the rich, tools for stealing from the past and weapons to wage war.
Time jumpers, time changers. Time travelers who need only to think of where they wish to be and they are there, any moment, any where and any when in time.
Forty years ago was the Time War. The countries of the world waged war throughout time. This was before the time jumpers, when time travel could only be done through machines.
Thirty years ago, the Time War ended and time machines were banned. But one company wanted a way around that. Wanted a way to get around that law.
And so, Kronos Inc is born. Publicly, its purpose is to help remind people of how destructive the war was, and to figure out ways to ensure it never happens again. It funds research that will take the country into the future, not the past. Privately, however, they fund far different projects. Projects designed to find every loophole in the agreement on time machines, and exploit them.
They find their loophole. Machines are not allowed, but what if a machine wasn't needed? What if someone could travel under their own power?
Using cloning technology and DNA editing, they manage to create people that can travel. The first few are failures, dying quickly.
Finally, they create one that works. They call him Icarus, and raise him to be nothing more than a machine for their use. He isn't a person, not in their eyes. And not in his own, either.
So. Basically, this is gonna be a futuristic romance with time travel. Your character should probably be someone from the future. Who exactly, we can figure out.
