Subject 001: Lt Devraj Mandvi
Of the initial subjects who returned from that ludicrous mission, Lt Mandvi is by far the most healthy. Unlike the others who were exposed to that nightmare, he has developed no crippling mutations, and has actually had most of his athletic abilities drastically increased, displaying a level of strength and stamina that can only be described as superhuman. That being said, two facts keep me from releasing him into military custody. The first is the matter of his heart rate. His resting heart rate is around 150 bpm, and can reach up to 300 bpm while exerting himself, and can stay at this point for up to half an hour. To be clear, a heart beating at over 200 bpm is considered a life-threatening condition, and if that rate persists for any length of time, emergency medical attention is required. Despite this, the lieutenant shows none of the usual signs of tachycardia, and reports experiencing no chest pain. The second abnormality is the seemingly random projection of plasma from the patient’s body. The patient will semi-regularly report a tingling sensation, usually located in his hands or feet, and briefly thereafter, will discharge a burst of plasma from the afflicted location. There has been no discernible pattern to the frequency of these events, which has severely stymied our ability to research the phenomenon, and has led us to keep Lt Mandvi in 24-hour isolation. Personally, I’m just thankful that he doesn’t seem to be harmed by this plasma. In many regards, the lieutenant was lucky. I’ve only had a brief look at the rest of our patients, but they all seem much worse off than this man. I don’t know what the council was thinking when they sent these people out there. And most of them are civilians! If they’ve been driven to this, the war must be much worse than they’ve told us. I fear for the future…
