What is a Stigmata?[edit | edit source]
In the Old World, humanity was also plagued by the Honkai. Through their researches they realized that some human genetics had a better adaptability to the radiation emitted from all Honkai Sources.
Those few rare human genes allowed for their descendants to withstand and fight back against the Honkai. It's unknown exactly what amount of radiation is needed to begin the process of stigmatization but any of those who gain a stigmata gain incredible augmentations to their abilities.
Types of Stigmata[edit | edit source]
They're currently 3 kinds of Stigmata, Artificial, Inherited and Schicksal.
Artificial stigmata are developed from leftover objects of the Subject that contain trace fragments of their DNA, which is then reformed through technology and then tested with various amounts of Honkai radiation to try and simulate the natural process stigama are formed,
Therefore, any remarkable Human who could potentially form a Stigmata may undergo a procedure to have their bone marrow removed and put through the same process and then placed back into their body which will give them the same abilities as those who have Natural stigmata.
The consequence of this, is that the lifespan of that human is greatly diminished due to the body not being able to properly handle the radiation of honkai.
This also means, if a human with an artificial stigmata dies of honkai radiation. Instead of reanimating as a honkai zombie, they are much more agile and intelligent. Sadly, they are not sentient and are presumed to be a host for honkai energy.
These Stigma-zombies, can become incredibly dangerous and it is recommended not to engage without proper support.
Inherited Stigmata are developed from the lineage of Human's who have actively fought the Honkai beasts. The first known Natural Stigmata possessing humans are the direct descendants of the Fire Moth team. Developed by Dr. MEI, volunteer humans underwent a process of mixing stem cells with honkai beast DNA to create a hybrid human known as a Fusion Solider.
These Fu-humans, became the families that would form the organization known as Schicksal. Eventually overseen by the Apocalypse Family.
The most well known Family names that are known to have 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.
