HAZMAD - The Sterilizing Demishade


   Like the mysterious Shades who toil in Mortasheen city's inner workings, the Demishades consist mostly of a crystalloid skeleton and organs suspended in an energy-absorbing fluid matrix, resembling beings of pitch darkness outside of their protective biofiber skins.


Often paired with Dispewsal and Extermineater in biological control teams, the Hazmad can produce either a powerful antimicrobial mist or nutrient-rich probiotic from its tubular digits, rapidly increasing or decreasing bacterial, fungal and protozoan activity as needed. Though a Demishade does not breathe in the traditional sense, the Hazmad is equipped with a respiratory system for the continuous sampling and analysis of surrounding microparticles, internally adjusting its chemical concoctions to suit the situation at hand.


The Hazmad is usually quiet, mild mannered and practical, but becomes increasingly excited as it operates, driven to a zealous euphoria by the sickly scent of accelerated microbial activity.


The Hazmad has little in the way of physical strength or agility, but its pale blue, antibiotic mist is potent enough to almost instaneously clear external fungal, bacterial or protozoan contamination from the outer tissues of its fellow monsters and significantly slow or halt internal infection via inhalation. Conversely, its green-tinged probiotic fumes can bloom the mildest of skin infections into full-blown fleshrot in mere minutes, counteracting the biological weaponry of enemy monsters while significantly boosting the potency of infectious allies.


QUASIBIOLOGICAL: the monster's mix of organic and inorganic components renders it highly resistant to extreme environments and many microbial or chemical weapons.

MEDICINAL MIST: The Hazmad can spray a sweet vapor that kills most microorganisms on contact.

PROBIOTIC MIST: the monster's alternate chemical spray can exponentially increase microbial reproduction and metabolism.
