The Minotaur is a wonderful human genetic creation. It was first created during the waning -and mostly decedent- last years of the Genetics age, though no crear records name the creator team or the date of first creation.
The first mention in the histories is a gladiator championship in 6872 BEGG. Their lore as preserved in Ta presents them as gladiator slaves of the era. In following years they became a seafaring race.
