"MALACODA" DEVELOPMENT PROGRESS DOCUMENT

Development of codename "Malacoda" began entirely from pure chance. In the process of marine organism B.O.W. research, we conducted infection experiments with t-Abyss on various fish, but one of them was infected with a skin fluke affliction.

The skin fluke ailment is famous as a fish parasite infection caused by a monogenean Capsalidae Benedenia skin fluke. This skin fluke was infected with t-Abyss together with its host and specifically altered the base B.O.W., improving development.

The Malacoda larva is approximately 1cm small. If its small body is employed efficiently and parasitizes a host, the larva will first secrete a particular kind of bodily fluid and transmit the virus to the host. Then it will mature into an adult form itself and become gigantic together with the host.

It's believed that depending on the host's size, t-Abyss and the secreted fluid probably boost metabolism via a synergistic effect. There are no experiment cases since it's dangerous, but if huge creatures such as the Cetacea family were hosts, I can't imagine how big they'd grow.

"マラコーダ"開発経過資料

コードネーム"マラコーダ"の開発はまったくの偶然から出発している。海洋生物のB.O.W.の研究の過程で、我々は様々な魚類にt-アビスによる感染実験を行ったがその中の一匹が、ハダムシ病に感染していたのである。
 
ハダムシ病は魚類寄生虫病として有名であり単生類カプサラ科ペネデニア亜科のハダムシを原因体としている。マラコーダは、このハダムシが宿主と共にt-アビスに感染したことで、特異に変化したものをベースにB.O.W.として開発改良したものである。
 
マラコーダの幼生は小さく1cmほどだ。その小さな体を生かし宿主に寄生すると、幼生は先ず特殊な体液を分泌させて宿主をもウィルスに感染させてしまう。すると宿主もろとも自らも巨大化させながら成体へと成長していくのだ。
 
恐らくt-アビスと分泌液が相乗効果で新陳代謝をブーストさせるのだと考えられる成体のサイズは宿主の大きさに依存する。危険なため実験ケースはないが、もしクジラ目科のような巨大生物が宿主ならどれほどの大きさにまで成長するか、想像もつかない。

MALACODA DEVELOPMENT MATERIALS

The development of codename: Malacoda happened by pure chance.

We were infecting various species of fish with the T-Abyss virus as part of our research into marine-based B.O.W.s. By chance, one of the test subjects was contaminated with parasites.

The parasite is Gyrodactylus salaris, a small monogenean ectoparasite. When T-Abyss is used to infect the host, it not only affects the host, but the parasite as well. The unique mutations formed by the dual infections have allowed us to improve our overall B.O.W. development.

A larval Malacoda is only about 1cm in length.

Because it is so small, it can be used as a parasite to infect the host by secreting a liquid that contains the virus. The parasite mutates inside the host and matures rapidly. Perhaps the synergistic effect of the T-Abyss and the secretion causes an increase to the metabolism of the organism.

The size to which the Malacoda can develop is contingent upon the size of the host. While clinical tests have yet to be carried out, if a whale were to be used as the host, there's no limit to the size Malacoda could assume.
