So I'm 17 chapters into Plague and just barely showing what the other gemues in this world look like...WTH??
They are described in detail in M&A but not really mentioned much at all in Plague....but the latest page gave me one heck of an opportunity to show them off finally.
From left to right:
Mech-splice: The oldest of the "gemues". They aren't really mutants, but early cyborg experiments. They inetgrated rebreathers into their trachea and fused their tank packs to their spines. But because of their seriously abberant appearance, they were lumped into the actual genetically mutated humans that came years later.
Whamue: Just like their name suggests, they were mutated with whale DNA - some baleen whales but mostly toothed whales (so this guy is abberant even for his sub species).
Dolphimue: The subjects of the dolphimue experiments found to their horror that they could no longer make passable human speech....so they either had to relearn how to do it with their current repetoire of clicks and whistles or spend tons of money on a device that allows translation. Dolphi-speak is extremely hard to learn, and even harder to make conversation with.
