What is a Stigmata?[edit | edit source]
In the Divine era, humanity was also plagued by Honkai. Through their research, they realized the best method of Honkai Adaptability is by DNA fusion.
The successful candidates of the Experiment were called Mantis warriors. These humans developed their own natural stigmata through training and honkai acclimation.
Types of Stigmata[edit | edit source]
There're currently 3 known types of Stigmata: Artificial Stigmata, Natural Stigmata, and True Stigmata.
Developed by Otto Apocalypse, these imperfect stigmata are made through DNA sampling and artificial DNA of a compatible bloodline infused with Honkai energy. This sample is then injected via spinal tap to the candidate.
This method does allow for a higher honkai radiation adaptability, however it does shorten the life of the candidate significantly and also has a higher risk of cascade as time continues.
All Schicksal Valkyries have Artificial Stigmata implants if they do not already have a stigmata.
Developed by Professor MEI during the divine era. This procedure allowed the bloodline to begin mutation upon activation of the user. Activation is done through unwavering determination to survive. The successful candidates are reclassified as Mantis agents. Their bloodlines will forever carry a Stigmata marker that can be activated by a dedicated descendant.
The only known Natural Stigmatas are the Kaslana and Schariac.
Stigmata Traits[edit | edit source]
Stigmata, though rare, has a higher rate of developing on females than males. With a stigmata, it does not make humans fully immune to honkai radiation, only a much higher adaptability. If the human undergoes too much physical stress, and not enough recovery, their endurance will deplete much faster.
