This mutation was initially overlooked as a more severe version of eczema; it was only after repeated encounters in the wild that our military personnel insisted a closer look was necessary.

Early tests were promising, but debilitating for the subjects. So much energy was channeled into the production and maintenance of the dermal modifications that the body was left with little energy for anything else, essentially negating any benefits provided.

Later refinements reduced the severity of lethargy experienced by subjects, but drowsiness and sporaid apathy are still frequent side-effects.
