Natural Killer Cells
The NKC’s are the Immune System’s most feared and stealthiest BioWarriors, gifted with sensors that allow them to locate infected BioWarrior and tissue cells alike, no matter how well-hidden. Their cytotoxic blasts reduce corrupted cells to organic debris that is reclaimed by the BioCosmos. They are often called the “Silent Killers” by their BioWarrior comrades both because of their ability to arrive at a battlefield without warning and their aloofness.
A cell that has broken its natural imposed limitations and gains access to its entire genetic code. This is dangerous as the mutated cell can call up the genetic powers of any other cell, become almost all powerful, and nearly unstoppable. The Omni-cell poses an even greater threat because of its ability to genetically warp other cells, turning them into zombie-like slaves.
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.
Leader of the Macrophage Corps, the Universe’s deadliest defenders. A legend in his own right, he often finds himself caught between reining in Scathe and harnessing his skills. Like other members of his Corps, he can fire chemical heat blasts, pull enemies into his acid-filled abdominal cavity with his tentacles, and grow to greater size and strength in preparation for battle.
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.
