What is a Stigmata?[edit | edit source]
In the Previous/Old era, humanity was also plagued by Honkai. Through their research, they realized the best method of Honkai Adaptability is by applying DNA fusion technology.
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: Schicksal Stigmata, MEI Stigmata, and Herrscher Stigmata.
Developed by Schicksal, 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 energy adaptability, however it shortens 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 MEI stigmata.
Developed by Professor MEI during the previous/old 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, the Schariac, Regulus (?) and Yae Sakura
These stigmatas are the ones blessed upon chosen humans who will become a Herrscher. They originate from the Honkai God and indicate that this human is a perfect fusion of Honkai and Human life. They also indicate that the host is capable of forming Herrscher core or gem
Herrscher stigmata contain a "Dark personality" It is a Honkai "personality" created by the Honkai God to ultimately dominate and assimilate it's human counterpart.
Herrscher stigmata can be inhereted through a consensual agreement or "crowning" where a new host becomes the Sovereign of the Herrscher core.
The currently observed hosts who have manifested the True stigmata are
Desire - Wendy
Destruction - Previous/Old Era Himeko
Corruption - Rin/Higokumaru
Stigmata Traits[edit | edit source]
Stigmata have a higher rate of developing on females than males. This is in concurrence with Honkai radiation adaptability.
With a stigmata, it indicates this human has a much higher radiation adaptability than normal humans. This makes them capable of incredible feats. However, if the human undergoes prolonged exposure and not enough recovery, the adaptability turns against the host and causes a cascade.
A stigmata can also lose control as a result from an Impact, eruption or aftershock. At the loss of control, the host acts in primal rage akin to honkai beasts. The current successful method of containment requires rapid decrease in thermal energy "freezing" the particles stopping the imminent cascade.
