A group of scientists were attempting to create life in their own, specially created environment. A strange element, Element 138, Birthion, was found in the environment. It eventually created a lifeform - a small, odd humanoid - inside a capsule. The scientists were worried about what they would do when the capsule opened because they thought the government might not consider their experiments to be just, so they fled their labs.
Nine months later, L-b1 emerges from his capsule. He is born. The labs are old and barely have any electricity, and strange monsters have grown in the various experiments the scientists conducted. L-b1 will have to survive and find his way outside.
