Protoplasmic Infusion


Protoplasmic Radiation

A unique radiation is emitted from protoplasm during energy extraction. This radiation is attributed as being the cause of protoplasmic infusion, that greatly distorts and mutates an organic body.   Individuals composed of less flesh (i.e. cyborgs and talocin) are less susceptible to this type of radiation.


Early Stage

  • Intense inexplicable pain
  • Swelling
  • Numbness near wounds
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headaches
  • Mid Stage

  • Acidic saliva
  • Green-tinged blood
  • Slowed bloodflow
  • Glowing cataractous eyes
  • Liquefying flesh
  • Late Stage

  • Luminous green blotches
  • Crackling skin sensation
  • Large, foul, pus-filled blisters
  • Low blood pressure
  • Lack of urine
  • Increased heart rate
  • Rapid breathing
  • Organ shut down
  • Treatment

    Dignitas is scientifically defined as the electronic impulses imprinted onto the mind from some decision made or from traumas inflicted onto a person.
    Protoplasm appears reactive to dignitatic efforts. It is through the supreme will of the patient that protoplasmic spread can be halted.   But not reversed.


    Naegleria is the irreversible condition, where a typically traumatic experience alters the physique of a perfectly transferable mind. Bearing this in mind, quickly evacuating the infected body into a new one is often the most viable option. Or the only one, if it has sufficiently progressed.
    The unfortunate memory of falling apart is forever imprinted on me.


    Infusion begins when enough radiation makes it through the dignitatic barrier and penetrates the soft tissues below it. Any potential hole does not need to be large and obvious. It can be but the size of a pin-prick or a persistent thinning over a large area.   Beneath the skin, around 3cm of tissue can be destroyed per hour. Oftentimes, only the bones or hardy cartilaginous areas can saved surgically. If the condition is allowed to progress, the skin's surface will turn green, then black, and open a wound that grows at an alarming rate. Surprisingly, it's not blood loss that kills, but septic shock, toxic shock, multi-organ failure, seizure, stroke or cardiac arrest.

    Affected Groups

    Only inflexible, organic bodies or those not naturally attuned to protoplasm; as with Alphi, Delphi and the occasional Betans can be affected. In fact, it appears quite unique to humans. But this is only because humans are the only beings to have entered Manidweepa from the Saudha Samudra dimension.   Natives, ethereals and most locals are, rather unfairly, immune to such things.


    The auras are somewhat of a pseudo-atmosphere unique to you. It is a thin film that shields electron movements inside from the alternate physics outside.
    Dignitatic auras appear as a ghostly halo around a person, at various intensity, in accordance to its strength.   It acts to isolate the electron movements, even the otherly properties notable within protoplasm, from entering and mutating things inside the body.   Gathering enough dignitas during late stages to hold one's self together, can make it appear as if the body is a mass of discoloured organs and bones being carried in a human-shaped transparent bag.
