monster cells

OPM reveals

The Monster Association is most probably recruiting dissatisfied civilians / failed heroes / crooks / others and turning them into mysterious beings with Monster Cells. That explains why there is a seemingly endless supply of mysterious beings right now and why their mysterious leader (pun intended) isn’t worried that so many have been defeated.

On Silicon

Consider that, in the Underground, the monsters have computers. And cell phones.

Consider further that their only source of highly processed silicon-type parts is the Waterfall garbage dump.

Consider who had to be repairing these items.

Also consider that typically once a modern phone or computer has experienced liquid damage, the internals are considered permanently wrecked and a board replacement is typically the only option.

Conclusion: Alphys is a f&$%ing genius.
