The complex, highly evolved defense forces of the BioCosmos. Spearheaded by T-Cells who utilize intelligence communicated to them by the Council of the Mind, B-Cells, Macrophages, Natural Killer Cells and others are deployed against the myriad invaders who seek to consume, corrupt and conquer the BioCosmos.
An invasion of the BioCosmos by pathogenic organisms that results in the corruption or destruction of the living terrain. If left unchecked, an infection can spread throughout the BioCosmos, even to BioWarriors themselves. These incursions can be bacterial, viral, fungal, or even larger creatures, and can enter the body either through a lesion in the skin barrier or through an opening.
A life form, a living creature that can replicate. Organisms may be nomadic like bacteria, or may work together like cells comprising the whole of the BioCosmos. Viruses are the only creatures not to be classified as organisms as they are purely bred for destruction. They cannot reproduce without destroying another life form.
A disease that becomes widespread and which has a high mortality rate among its victims. One example is The Black Death, which took millions of lives during the Dark Ages. Some believe it eventually gave rise to the Renaissance—and it is this cruel dynamic that The Combine wishes to reenact.
Clear-colored fluid which runs through the many corridors of the BioCosmos.
