In a world with mind control well-developed, commonly used, and readily available, it becomes the obvious solution when it comes to handling criminals. As part of it, criminals can be turned into Type C Slaves, where “C” stands for “Convicted”. The exact details depend on the crime and the jury’s mood, and are usually tailored to the convict.
In some cases, handlers are given some freedom in how they enforce the new slave’s obedience. In the case of international criminal Russian Blue, her handlers decided to build upon her existing conditioning with tango music. Their project, codenamed “The Music of Whiskers”, consisted in programming the criminal cat’s mind with more musical triggers. Each music style is now associated in her mind with a specific behavior, and by giving her the right playlist, it is now possible to schedule her behavior for the whole day!
