- The Genetics Council forms.
- The first Breed - Leo - is created.
- Leo meets Elizabeth Vanderdale, daughter of the Vanderdale dynasty and a man who is a member of the Genetics Council.
- Sperm and ova from Leo and Elizabeth Vanderdale are extracted from them both against their will and combined in the lab. Nine months later, Callan Lyons, the first Hybrid Breed ever created, is born.
- Leo escapes the labs and Elizabeth follows him into the wilds, where they go into hiding from the Genetics Council, with the help of Elizabeth's father, who changes his ways.
- Dane Vanderdale is born from Leo and Elizabeth Vanderdale's natural mating, in freedom. He is the first known Hybrid Breed born naturally, not in a lab.
- The Genetics Council uses blood, semen, urine, and other DNA samples from Leo which were kept cryogenically frozen and combine them with blood, semen, urine, and other DNA samples from Elizabeth Vanderdale to create in the lab new Breeds. Sperm and ova from Leo and Elizabeth are combined and implanted into a French scientist under the Genetics Council's control. Nine months later, she gives birth to Jonas Wyatt and raises him in the lab with her, convincing him she is his biological mother.

- Cassa Hawkins and her husband, Douglas Watts, along with Jonas Wyatt and his cadre of Enforcers find the Breed Progressive Training Facility in Germany. The Council-based secret lab for Bengal Tiger Breeds goes into self-destruct mode when its is infiltrated, and begins exterminating the twenty-five Bengal tiger Breeds trapped inside. Douglas Watts, one of those of the rescue party, is discovered to have betrayed the Bengal Breeds to their deaths in exchange for US$10 Million in an off-shore account from the Genetics Council. Cabal St. Laurents is the only Bengal Breed to survive the labs traps and escape with his life. He wounds Douglas, paralyzing him and leaving him to be taken into Jonas Wyatt's custody. Cabal then calls out a life debt to Cassa, stating that she unwittingly led Douglas to them, and that betrayal will cost her. In their exchange, she tastes his blood, and this sets off the Mating Heat in both of them. Cassa and Cabal are then extracted and taken to separate locations to heal and be debriefed. After, Cassa is released and takes up a career as a journalist. Cabal becomes one of Jonas' best covert Enforcers. They see each other occasionally, but mostly avoid one another like the plague, both to avoid the commitment of Mating Heat. Douglas is officially declared dead by the Bureau, although he is not; in secret, he is taken to a prison in the Middle East by Jonas, where he is kept in a barely alive state, totally isolated in a cell. As a result of his injuries, he is paralyzed from the neck down and unable to move or do anything for himself. He lives in a state of total misery and boredom, and begins to go slowly insane. This is his punishment, according to Breed Law.
