Pandorans are creatures spawned when a Promethean's creation rite goes horribly wrong. Instead of creating a whole Promethean, the process transforms pieces of the reassembled corpse into small living creatures of a variety of shapes and abilities.
Pandorans require Azoth to remain animate; without it, they enter Dormancy. In this dormant state, they resemble inanimate objects of varying types and sizes - anything from lumps of wood or rock through to sculptures or statues. They can even be shaped in the same ways as the objects they resemble.
Variations of Pandorans
- Praecipitati: Whilst the Pandoran hungers for Azoth like a starving man, it also needs Flux to retain its broken alchemy. If it is exposed to too much Flux, it enter the Flux Hunger, and begins to devour its fellow Pandorans. The more it engorges itself on its fellows, the Pandoran grows and mutates, becoming a Praecipitatus. Looking nothing like their creators, the Praecipitatus is a long-limbed, grasping, mutating thing that thankfully dies quickly due to how horrifically unstable it is.
- Sublimati: Whilst the average Pandoran is intelligent, the Sublimati are especially so, taking a nasty delight in weaving complex plans whilst stalking its prey. They know how to drain the slightest spark of Pyros from humans, too, meaning that they feast on their flesh as well as Prometheans.
