In my book set in the future, all of humanity has united under the leadership of a super race of genetically modified people called Overseers (numbering at least 1000) and has built a space (empire size) nation called The Human Collective.
The Overseers supervise all fields: Science, governance, military, education, health and so on. They live for a very long time and are very difficult to kill.
What would be the most useful physical body design for the Overseers?
Think about creating a recipe for a superhuman leader. What would you use or do to create a leader race? Genetic treatment? Chimaeras? I am open to suggestions!
Examples: I was thinking that they could have a new organ or core device that would either send in nanobots or specialized cells to repair the body in case of damage or fatigue.
- I don't mind each Overseer being tailored specifically for their job.
- I don't want them to go down the robotics road.
- This is a body design question on what would they most likely use to make Overseers.
- Overseers do not have to be perfect beings (a big plot point is that they are flawed just like us but they are more like a guide for humanity to lead and serve the best they can).
