Came up with this idea, gonna bounce it off all you folks here to see what you think of it. Written in a "In Character" style (as entries from data-pad logs created by the character/storyteller). Let me know what you think.
I am deleting the posts for this thread. I realize now I wasted time on it. TY to any who bothered to read the original posting.

No he's the Alpha APEX hybrid, only surviving standard APEX hybrids (if there turn out to be any still in existence) would hypothetically be biologically prone to obedience but that could be a failed engram encoding program as well. Warmorts & skullocks wouldn't see him as anything special outside of a potential victim or threat. He isn't tied into their creation in any way. He is basically an example of another line of bio-engineered lifeforms intended for use as combat troops by the ancients.
The Skullock & Warmort current bio-templates have diverged from their originals since the Fall. They retain none of the obedience directives towards PSH that were encoded into their progenitors (in fact they seem to have a deeply ingrained hatred of their creators, from the various hints & characterizations in TME books). They don't seem to even realize they are bio-engineered creations & neither do 99% of the current population. Only highly enlightened scholars & any ancient-descended cultures (the Purehold Republic being an example) have retained that knowledge.
I actually take that into consideration in the story (the intro is supposedly from Mackie. He obviously doesn't know that skullock & warmort are "man-made" mutant creatures at all).
