Conversation with Skeer the Bloodseeker
Rik'kal the Dissector says: Bloodseeker, your regenerative powers fascinate me. I wonder if you would consent to a few tests.
Skeer the Bloodseeker says: What kind of tests?
Rik'kal the Dissector says: Just a little cellular trauma induction, maybe a few tissue samples, a session of micro-sonic deep gene-probing. Nothing terribly invasive!
Skeer the Bloodseeker says: What was that last part?
Rik'kal the Dissector says: Tissue samples?
Skeer the Bloodseeker says: After that.
Rik'kal the Dissector says: Nothing terribly invasive?
Skeer the Bloodseeker says: We are done talking.
Conversation with Kaz'tik the Manipulator
Rik'kal the Dissector says: That is quite an impressive beast you have there, Manipulator. Very intriguing.
Kaz'tik the Manipulator says: No.
Rik'kal the Dissector says: All those years in stasis followed by sudden, rapid growth.
Kaz'tik the Manipulator says: Do not even ask.
Rik'kal the Dissector says: I am just saying... I bet his genes tell quite a story...
Kaz'tik the Manipulator says: And I am just saying, Dissector, that you do not appear to possess any resistance to sonic manipulation.
Kaz'tik the Manipulator says: How would you like to suddenly become "intrigued" by your own thorax? I bet your skilled hands could perform a self-vivisection in mere seconds if they were properly compelled.
Rik'kal the Dissector says: Point taken.
Klaxxi enhancement
I have coated your weapons with my special mixture, Wakener. You will infect every corpse with a mutagen that... well... you must see the results for yourself.
