In the early 21st century, a group of scientists with no known origins or nationalities formed “APE” and operated with the Landmark Club. APE introduced revolutionary mining technology to dig up magma energy from deep underground creating a new low-cost and all-encompassing energy source. This advance gave APE huge influence on the international economy and politics, and sped up the development of human civilization.
In 2025, the scientist Werner Frank was hired by APE to research human immortality. His research was successful, initially enabling the wealthy to become immortals at the cost of losing their reproductive functions. Eventually the option became universally available. However, the heavy use of magma energy was at the cost of an increasing desertification of the planet leading to the creation of the Plantations containing their own ecosystems.
By the year 2037, Klaxosaurs (screaming reptiles) appeared to attack the magma energy plants, leading Werner Frank to develop the Franxx units which appeared five years later. There were several failed attempts to complete development of the Franxx units which cost many lives including that of Werner’s wife, Karina Milsa. Werner Frank also used a hair sample of the humanoid Princess of Klaxosaurs to extract DNA to create Zero Two. Finally, a system of pairing young fertile male and female partners called Parasites was established. The Garden called Mistilteinn was built so that, in isolation, these children could develop the emotional responses required to pilot a Franxx.
