Crake saves Jimmy from his deep sadness. Crake offers Jimmy a job at his company. Jimmy is now charged with creating the ad campaign for the BlyssPluss Pill, a medicine that promises to revert aging. Crake shows Jimmy the other part of his project, Paradice. Crake has created a humanoid creature that embodies many of the best qualities of humans and various animals from around the world. In particular, Crake wishes to create an immortal species. He removes many of the "undesirable" human traits from his creation. The Paradice models, or Crakers as they are later called, live in an enclosure inside of the compound. It is here that Jimmy meets Oryx in person for the first time. Oryx and Jimmy eventually develop a sexual relationship even though Oryx is also in a relationship with Crake. The arrangement is odd, but Crake does not seem to know about it.
