Project Perfection was a joint Department of Care and Department of Progress initiative to create genetically perfect ponies immune to Hoarfrost and incapable of hatred. It went through several stages of development, the ultimate unintended result being the production of a biological weapon.
The original project (headed by Fluttershy) entailed saving Equestrian flora and fauna in case the Windigo advance could not be halted. It succeeded. Researches noted that several of the initial serum recipients, including Angel Bunny, developed gradually worsening mutations.
Project Protection was shuttered when the Department of Progress took jurisdiction. They used the research as a basis for Project Comfort.
