The Hounds are mutants that have been brainwashed by Dr. Roderick Campbell and employed by Sentinel Services to capture other mutants, particularly members of the Mutant Underground. Through research done by Cambell two hounds can have their powers combined together to make them even stronger; but are still no match for extremely powerful mutant; particularly class 5 mutants.
When he was discovered to be working with Sentinel Services, Polaris and Eclipse captured agent Jace Turner to find out what had been done to Pulse. Using Dreamer's ability to manipulate memories, the Mutant Underground learnt that the tattoo they extracted from agent Turner's mind was the same one branded on Pulse's arm. When the Mutant Underground managed to capture Chloe Tan, they learned that the hound program turned mutants into hounds through mental conditioning that forces the apprehended mutants into obeying their orders without question and forcing massive doses of the highly addictive power enhancing drug called Kick into the mutants body until they are hopelessly addicted.
Recently, thanks to research conducted by Trask Industries on Andy and Lauren Strucker's combined Fenris force ability, a manacle like device was created, which combines the abilities of the 2 mutants it is connected to. Sentinel services now uses this device with their hound operatives to create much more powerful and effective weapons against mutants; despite this, the new hounds were still no match for Andy and Lauren, when the Strucker siblings combine their powers (unofficially known as the "Fenris force") killing the two hounds in the process; but at the cost of destroying the Mutant Underground HQ.
Proving that the Hounds created by Dr. Roderick Campbell, are still no match for extremely powerful mutants; particularly class 5 mutants.
The Hound program ended; when it's initiator Roderick was killed in a plane crash caused by Polaris.
