Geneticist concept art for RO.

|Job Base||Alchemist, Creator|

While most Alchemists sought learning in various fields of knowledge, some of them concentrated their studies in the alchemic principles of transformation: these alchemists were known as the Geneticists among their peers. The Geneticists transformed the reliable Merchant’s Cart, which was primarily used to hold various experimental tools, into an effective weapon. They also upgraded their creation technologies to transmutate existing creatures into completely different beings.
NOTE: The original name of this job class is Genetic, but the term doesn't make sense as it refers to a discipline of science rather than an individual. Therefore, the correct term for this job class is Geneticist.
Background[edit | edit source]
Alchemy quickly bloomed throughout the Rune-Midgarts continent after the successful development of the homunculi. As the popularity of alchemy spread, more Alchemists developed more efficient potions and created Plant monsters to aid them in battle to compensate for their physical weaknesses.

It didn't take the alchemic geniuses long to master their knowledge of all the materials found in the Rune-Midgarts continent, but they still hungered to find new discoveries that would stir up the academic world. Surprised by the body of knowledge they had accumulated in such a short time, the Alchemist Guild changed their passive attitude towards research and encouraged Geneticists to study the materials in the Ash Vacuum, where almost everything was completely different from the Rune-Midgarts continent. Once the academic Geneticists ventured into the Ash Vacuum, their discoveries unleashed their unlimited creativity.
