CLASS: Botanical ExtraDimensional
INFORMATION CLEARANCE: Magenta
Bolusite are curious beings, clearly from Dimensions other than Conventional reality, but also confirmed to not be from the Abyss.
Bolusite must be obtained by culturing tissues sampled from a vine or branch that falls through the Summoning rift.
Bolusite drain an unknown form of nourishment from living beings, but prefer targets of a botanical nature, as it is through them that they are capable of truly reproducing. As a Bolusite feeds, it leaves behind its own cancerous tissues which overrun its host, slowly transforming them into strange, warped trees with vine-like branches and stark white leaves living indefinitely due to the Bolusite’s mysterious tissues, though only trees created from beings of a botanical nature will grow the pinkish, tuber-like “fruits” from which new bolusite are born.
A Bolusite’s nervous system is evenly distributed throughout its body, allowing it to feel no pain due to its capability to regrow from even the smallest shred of tissue, and a Bolusite may drop its branches to form huge thickets of ambulatory, parasitic weeds that will attack any threatening presence, draining them of fluids, though without the mysterious nourishment that Bolusite subsist upon, they wither and die within days.
Upon death, a Bolusite’s remaining tissues begin to desiccate, harden and disintegrate, becoming an ash like material that has been known to cause intense fits of melancholy
it may be purely academic to try and pin down the age of any marotte, given their freedom from time and other conventional dimensions. the exception is POD, a marotte who has yet to decide their preferred diet, and seems to be on a youthful “gap eon”, exploring the clownmoons at their own leisure and occasionally tagging along with a bonded marotte and its host; a parasite on top of a parasite. if POD has understudy mini-marottes of their own, they’ve never mentioned it.
So I’ve done a bit of online shopping to cheer me up. Pre-ordered Michael Jayston, my Queen Lalla Ward and William’s Russell autographs, bought the Musketeers book and booked the celebrity meal for the Doctor Who Dimensions event in October which I’m so pumped for! So not only do I have a gold ticket which includes drinking with the guests on Friday but I get to eat with them as well on Saturday!!! Doctor Who is gonna be the death of me and my bank account I swear.
