Alpha-1’s T-Cell companion at Lymph Outpost 1818, the headquarters from which they coordinate the movements of Blastor’s B-Cells and Phagien’s Macrophages using data conveyed from the Council of the Mind by way of Messenger Cells. Logical and perceptive, he refrains from developing friendships with BioWarriors, knowing their lifespans are often brief.
A bio-engineered deadly bacteria created by The Combine, he is the initial carrier of the Z-Kron virus, which is hidden within his bacterial genes. After breaching the BioCosmic Universe and escaping a brutal battle with the Biowarriors, he uses Conjugation to pass the Z-Kron virus on to a swarm of harmless bacteria—transforming them into deadly fighters who carry within them an even deadlier secret that will burst forth when least expected.
A feared member of the Macrophage Corps, known equally for his vicious persona and lack of discipline. This feral nature often puts him at odds with Blastor and Humron. Like all Macrophages, his body swells to greater size and strength when stimulated for battle, and strikes at his foes with chemical heat blasts. He uses his tentacles to pull pestilent microbes into an abdominal cavity filled with corrosive acids.
An effervescent messenger cell who traverses the neural super highway at the speed of thought, conveying vital information from the Council of the Mind to BioWarriors scattered throughout the BioCosmic Universe. The only thing she loves more than her role is the B-Cell Blastor, though he considers her only a friend and valuable comrade.
A Natural Killer Cell who, along with Cid, is summoned to scenes of battle to annihilate infected tissue using cytotoxic blasts. Because she must destroy infected BioWarriors as often as she does bacteria and viruses, her appearance is greeted not with celebration by her allies, but fear and respect.
Once, she was just a harmless eColi bacteria named Bacter. Her tribe was peaceful, seeking only a home in which to grow and strive—and thought they’d found paradise upon first entering the BioCosmic Universe through a cut in Alex’s hand. When the Macrophages wiped them out, Bacter barely escaped—and was found by Raze, who used Conjugation to mutate her into something far more menacing to the health of the BioCosmos. Now, she’s bigger, stronger, and can use her spiked talons and poisonous spikes to tear apart BioWarriors. She has a special hatred for Scathe.
An informatory T-Cell who, along with Gamma-9, deploys Blastor’s B-Cell Legion and Phagien’s Macrophage Corps based upon information received from the Council of the Mind. Analytical to the point of coldness, he is resigned to the fact that many of the BioWarriors he dispatches into battle will never return.
The living, breathing world within the human body. Inhabited by trillions of cells, this vast alien-like terrain hosts many different life forms. Some are friendly and loyal to the cause of the whole, while others are invading predators who seek its destruction and dominance.
The life force of every cell, including BioWarriors. Trillions of cells inhabit the BioCosmos, all of which are linked together and to the subconscious mind of their mysterious host. When this supreme being’s will is strong, the cells become more energized, their biods glowing more brightly. Conversely, when the will of the host is weak, the strength of its cells diminishes in equal measure, their biods dimming. When this occurs, the BioCosmos as a whole becomes more vulnerable to bacterial incursions and viral infections.
The constant battle for survival that occurs within every body of every creature. In the epic struggle for life, the BioWarriors defend their home world—the BioCosmos—against the invasive forces of viruses, bacteria, and other infectious agents. Life sometimes has a cruel twist, and the Biowars may also spark a battle of host versus host when one of the BioCosmos’ own cells turns against it. Agent cells can go rogue via contraction of a viral infection or through a genetic mutation. In the story of Biowars, the cells of the Immune System and Nervous System are given human forms, but retain their real world biological powers. All other cells retain their actual forms and biological functions.
The field general of the B-Cell Legion, one of the BioCosmic universe’s most advanced defense forces. Like other B-Cells, Blastor is protected by cyto-skeletal armor during battle, can create up to seven short-lived clones of himself, and is equipped with forearm-mounted antibody cannons. He’s a brilliant strategist, loyal friend, and is stubborn beyond measure.
