- Triton: In Greek mythology, Triton is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, the personification of the roaring waters, represented as having the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish. Over time, his name and image came to be associated with a class of creatures, Tritons, which could be male or female, and usually formed the escort of marine divinities.
Unknown to the general public, the Triton Foundation is yet another brainchild of the Æon Society. It is a collective of several dozen smaller pharmaceutical and biological research firms. With their collective strength, and the help of novas, it has managed to cure cancer and discover a vaccine for AIDS. It works closely with Project Utopia and, secretly, Project Proteus.
