Mae: The Biomancer Lore

Name: Mae
Race: Plant Human Hybrid
Home: Earth
Time: 2054
Dimension: Prime

Mae was a Bio-Technician; she worked with various types of bacteria, testing, synthesising, mixing, extracting and so on day in and day out trying to find uses for all the kinds of experiments she conducted. She was assigned a shipment of new materials to test with, they came in hazardous boxes, unusual considering what she usually worked with. These new materials where various biological extracts, some poisonous and some had been by-products of testing elsewhere.

Weeks went by and Mae had begun working through her new specimens, combining them, testing them and changing them, most tests resulted in either more toxic chemicals or new biological formations that had no real use. One project she had previous set aside one day showed promise, it had grown. A concoction of enzymes, biochemical’s and hybrid extracts, this small dish of matter should not have grown.

Mae started testing this substance to see what it had become and why. During one of her tests she was handling a container of the new biochemical the substance in the container rapidly grew in size. This unexpected reaction caught Mae by surprise, as she reeled the substance fell out of the container and landed on her right hand. Heavily gloved she thought nothing of it and began to walk to the bin to dispose of her gloves. As she approached, the substance began to creep through her glove, seeping into her skin, burning at first and then pulsing. She tried to pull off the glove but it had begun to fuse to her skin, panicking she rushed to the sink to wash it off, the water removed the excess substance but revealed the green veined rough skin bellow beginning to change. Rushed to quarantine she could see her arm growing, changing into something hard, she could still move it and could still feel it but it wasn’t skin any longer. Mae passed out. When she awoke she was shocked to find herself in white sterile box room and her right hand fully transformed into branching wooden fist.

Mae had been turned from a scientist into a subject, tests were conducted on her, the other scientists could not harvest anything from her arm, the wood was harder than any naturally growing tree bark. Whenever the scientist tried anything extensive her arm would react and grow as if protecting her. As time went on and the scientist could not help Mae she began to change further, her skin began to change too. Her biology was changing, this substance had made her some mixture of flesh and plant. Her skin eroded things on touch, she could produce biochemical’s and use them for various things.

Mae disappeared from the labs, the scientists have no idea where she went. The Warden however knew exactly where this new Biomancer belonged.
