UXP417: "Dimensional Bleeding"

NOTE: Some of you may have already seen my interview with Dia Renalda. In it, I mentioned the phenomenon known as "dimensional bleeding", but didn't explain. So here's an explanation now. --SΣ

Designation: UXP417

Description: This is the phenomenon that causes parallel realities to "bleed" into one another, allowing people living in different universes to interact, and causing a number of inconsistencies, particularly with the appearance and behavior of PREs. "Dimensional Bleeding," as the phenomenon is colloquially known, is usually most noticeable in the presence of a PRE.

There are a number of hypotheses among Archive Analysts regarding the source of this phenomenon: some believe that the PREs, by their very presence, cause a breakdown in reality. Others hypothesize that it is the opening of Pathways that weakens the boundaries between universes. Still, there are some who believe that the phenomenon is solely a side-effect of PRE19 "Quiet".

PRE19: "Quiet"

Designation: PRE19

Colloquial Terms: The Quiet, The Unmaking, The Silent Void, The Screaming Darkness, The Starless Night, Rest, The All-Consuming Void, ENDING

Physical Description: PRE19 is defined by the complete absence of physical description

Behavioral Characteristics: It is believed that PRE19 came into existence in an alternate reality, as a result of that universe being torn in some way. PRE19 is nothingness. It is a void defined as the opposite of existence, which spreads across universes and consumes them. While it does pass from reality to reality, some "tendrils" of it can be sighted in different universes, erasing various things from existence.

CW007: "Bliss"

NOTE: This thing is just barely recognized as an actual Pathway. Hell, even a lot of Analysts and Scribes question its existence. The fact that all our information on it comes from about seven total accounts probably has something to do with it. Though these are accounts from people all over the world who lived in different time periods, so... take from that what you will. Whether you believe this or not is up to; I don't care. --SΣ

Designation: CW007

Common Term: Bliss 

CW007 is a relatively mysterious domain, believed to belong to PRE03 "Archangel." Reports concerning it are exceedingly rare, as PRE03 rarely shows an active interest in the lives of its Servants, who are mostly composed of cultists.

Each report on this location has been identical. The witnesses all found themselves floating in darkness, and described being surrounded by a comforting and familiar presence. Each described a feeling of total calm and absolute peace. However, after a few hours of experiencing this sensation, the witnesses were abruptly pulled from it by what they described as "rough hands with too many and too-long fingers."

Each witness suffered from severe depression following the experience, and eventually they all took their own lives.

P12A00 and P12B00 series: "Oathbreakers"

Happy birthday to me. Happy birthday to me. I'll celebrate with a bottle of champagne. --SΣ

There are certain people involved with the medical profession who show a sort of loyalty and reverence to PRE12 "Plague Doctor". These people are informally called "Oathbreakers," in reference to the Hippocratic Oath.

Those designated with the P12A00 series are considered "lesser Oathbreakers," though they are also often called "Plague Bearers" and "Night Surgeons." They often tattoo a symbol known as the Stick and the Serpent on some part of their body, and work to ensure the spread of disease. They often work as back-alley doctors, pharmaceutical salespeople, and nurses. Aside from subtly working to infect their patients, they seem function completely normally as average members of society.

Those designated with the P12B00 series are considered "greater Oathbreakers," and are often called "Mad Doctors." They often occupy higher positions in the medical community than the P12A00 designations, being surgeons, doctors, and scientists. They are also often more specialized in their approach to causing infection than P12A00 designations are. "Greater Oathbreakers" will often experiment to find new ways of causing infection and use their patients as guinea pigs for these experiments.
