A Choice Kill is a Gen who is self-aware and able to fear being killed.
This can be:
b) a Gen born and raised out-Territory, and captured as a Wild Gen or as a pre-Gen and taken to a Genfarm or into the Pen system. Wild Gens may also be sold directly to the Choice Auctions. A Gen born of Sime parents in-Territory, Established in-Territory, is considered a Choice Kill because the Gen is self-aware and has not grown up drugged as pre-Gens on Genfarms or in the Pen System do. Before Unity, it is a crime to do anything with such Established young Gens other than surrender them to the Pen System, a Gendealer, or a Genfarm.
Wild Gens caught out-Territory, are self-aware, sensitive, and full of the will to fight. Once overwhelmed by a Sime in Need, their terror is disproportionately satisfying to the junct in a way no Pen raised Gen could be.
