Regalia of Forgotten Souls

By:

The vestments of office for the Queen of Forgotten Souls. Strange jewely with powers beyond mortal comprehension.

The Eerie Crown
This is the first soul to pass through the Gates of Celeste without a proper name.
It is bound as a transparent blue headdress with thin trailing tentacles of ghostly nether-materials. This soul is constantly in pain and shifts violently all over the head of whoever dares wear it, sometimes causing difficulty with vision or speech.

The Revolting Scepter
This is the first soul to pass through the gates of Hades without a proper name.
It is bound as a two-foot-tall silver rod that constantly feels like the flesh of a dead man.

Rings of Nameless Heritage
The twin soul with no name, the first to leave Celeste and Hades behind and forge a path through the stars. It is bound as two rings, one for each of the smallest fingers. One is jet black, the other brilliant white.

A Terrible Queen’s Jewelry
Once, the Regalia of Forgotten Souls were simply a sign of office for the Queen of Forgotten Souls. This terrible Queen ruled over the Neganethernox and was the patron of nameless souls. The souls forged from nothing, by nothing, with no purpose. She sought out the ones that had forged a destiny for themselves… So that they may return to the nothing they were born of.

Neat little seed of an idea. Put flesh to bone, I'd love to see it as a fully realized sub.

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
