ID Number: MY-1801-FJ
Subject MY-1801-FJ is a male of Chinese-Australian descent, having straight black hair and brown eyes. His height is below average for his age and he possesses little by way of fat or muscle mass, being only 169cm tall and weighing 31kg. Due to limitations imposed by his anomalous nature, MY-1801-FJ is easily identified by the length of his hair, coming in at ~112 cm long or 66% of his total height. Background:
Subject has been noted to wear the male and female standard-issue uniforms interchangeably (see Privileges).
On [VOID] facility staff were made aware of an anomalous occurrence at the site of a vehicular collision in [VOID] Australia. The anomaly was first identified by civilian emergency response workers who described it as an unidentified heat source that grew more intense with time. As view of the anomaly was obstructed by wreckage piled atop of it, it was initially assumed to be a mundane chemical fire, and subsequently, facility staff were not made aware of the issue until 6 hours after the anomalies appearance. Powers:
Due to the intense heat that had been generated and the obstruction by the wreckage, Facility staff were unable to neutralise the anomaly for a further 9 hours, after which an ooze like substance emerged from beneath what remained of the wreckage. Multiple witnesses have stated that the substance appeared to move with something like a rudimentary intelligence, with one witness further clarifying that "It spread and contracted in a similar pattern to a slime mould". The substance was observed to be excreting a secondary material that continuously boiled away and appeared to be the source of the heat.
After emerging, facility staff were able to successfully cool the anomaly, upon which it rapidly formed into an infant male and was taken into facility custody. [EDIT: THE ANOMALOUS INDIVIDUAL, 1801 (CLASSIFICATION PENDING), HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS FELIX JONES. BIOLOGICAL PARENTS, [VOID] AND [VOID] WERE BOTH KILLED IN THE INCIDENT ABOVE, NO OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE COME FORWARD AT THIS TIME.]
MY-1801-FJ possesses an adaptive ability to automatically destroy and repair his personal biomass.
Any material produced by MY-1801-FJ’s body will begin to degenerate within roughly 1 second of being damaged or separated from his primary mass, decaying with a half-life of about 0.4 seconds.
As material degenerates, some of it is lost as heat. In cases where only a small portion degenerates the heat generated is negligible, however with continuous degeneration, the heat can quickly compound, especially in environments where the heat cannot vent. As MY-1801-FJ’s body possesses no abnormal resistance to heat, it is possible for his degeneration to begin hurting him should he sustain enough damage in a short period of time.
It is hypothesised that MY-1801-FJ’s degeneration is actually a conversion of matter to energy, however, this is yet to be confirmed (see Researcher Notes).
[EDIT 3: As of [VOID] MY-1801-FJ’s degeneration has been observed to remove excess acids from his body. It is hence assumed that MY-1801-FJ’s degeneration shares his regenerations adaptability (see Regeneration).]
Any of MY-1801-FJ’s biological material damaged or removed from his body will begin to produce a reddish substance similar in appearance to coagulated blood at a rate of 3.6 kg/sec. This “regenerative substance” will conform to the damaged site and convert itself into undamaged flesh in a similar pattern to degeneration. The regenerative substance can be moulded by hand with relative ease and will degenerate if separated from the main body mass, but otherwise is next to impossible to destroy. [Note: 1801 seemingly cannot regenerate his nails. The reason for this distinction is yet to be determined.]
Prior to MY-1801-FJ being brought into the facility, his regenerative substance was observed escaping from underneath an overturned semi-trailer. This event occurred after a period of several hours of degeneration and regeneration, during which MY-1801-FJ was immobile and almost certainly unable to fully regenerate given the confined space. Owing to this event it is hypothesised that MY-1801-FJ’s regenerative abilities have some limited capacity to adapt. Necessary stimuli for this to occur are yet to be ascertained.
[EDIT 1: The adaptive capacity of MY-1801-FJ’s regeneration has successfully been confirmed. Following Experiment [VOID], a 36-hour stay in a vacuum MY-1801-FJ’s regeneration has begun generating oxygen prior to the point of cellular damage from deprivation. See experiment logs for more details.]
[EDIT 2: A comprehensive review of footage featuring MY-1801-FJ’s regeneration has revealed that while there has been no increase in the speed regenerative substance is generated, the order that parts are generated has gradually optimised itself over time. It is currently assumed that this adaptability is limited to changing the application of the anomaly, without affecting the underlying mechanics or potency. Given this limitation and the slow speed of adaptation, the risk of an adaptive singularity occurring has been deemed as negligible.]
- Stuffed Toy: A knitted doll collected from MY-1801-FJ’s birth home when he first brought into Facility B.
- Souvenirs: MY-1801-FJ is regularly supplied with various souvenirs and trinkets from outside Facility B. [Note: Subject has no real experience outside of the facility so anything should do.]
- Uniforms: Subject has requested copies of various uniforms seen around the facility. Request for uniforms matching those of facility staff or patches for other anomalous individual categorisations have been denied, however, female uniforms have been supplied.
- Desk: MY-1801-FJ has been provided with a desk and chair.
- Extended Educational Materials: MY-1801-FJ is to be provided with standard educational materials in addition to material covering any other subject he requests within reason.
[SUBJECT NOTE: Despite the subjects generally excellent corporation and behaviour, MY-1801-FJ makes very few privileges claims.]Researcher Notes:
All attempts to perform an in-depth analysis of 1801’s biology have thus far proven impossible. Attempts to prevent regeneration, both physically and chemically all either failed or generated too much heat to continue. Tissue samples cannot be maintained long enough for analysis.
-Researcher A. Harvey
Subject is generally a very quiet and exceptionally well-behaved research subject. He rarely puts up much resistance to testing, though he does tend to exhibit signs of distress prior to and proceeding sessions of prolonged stress testing (see experiment logs [VOID] and [VOID]).
Should degeneration turn out to in fact be a process by which matter is converted to energy and stored as is currently predicted, then given predicted the ratio of absorption to losses and the amount of matter MY-1801-FJ’s is estimated to have degenerated through natural processes alone, the subject may represent a catastrophic hazard upon his demise, dependant on if and how that energy is released. While energy storage is currently only the prevalent hypothesis as to the mechanics 1801’s abilities until it can be conclusively confirmed or denied care should be taken regarding any tests attempting to bypass his regeneration.
[RESEARCH NOTE: UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE SPECIAL CLEARANCE IS REQUIRED BEFORE PERFORMING ANY TESTS ON MY-1801-FJ THAT, ATTEMPT TO BYPASS SUBJECTS ABILITIES OR WHICH INVOLVE DIMENSIONAL MANIPULATION OR ENERGY SIPHONING.]
