Item #: RPC-XXX

Object Class: Beta

Containment Protocols: [Paragraphs explaining the procedures]

Description: RPC-XXX is a blood-borne viral infection that causes significant alterations in the dermis and epidermis of its host. The infection has three main stages.

Stage I begins within two days after initial exposure to RPC-XXX. Symptoms include severe callousing on the epidermis and thickening of the dermis. Skin covering the joints and the extremities remains unaffected. The infected subject also experiences hair loss during this stage.

Stage II begins within a month after exposure, and cannot be identified without the use of X-rays. The subject's bone matter will disintegrate and be reabsorbed by the body. However, the subject experiences no mobility issues, as muscles now adhere to the dermis, which has become thick and strong enough to act as an exoskeleton. In fact, the subject now exhibits increased strength and speed due to their lack of bones.

Stage III occurs the instant the entire skeleton has been reabsorbed. The virus will then attack the frontal lobe, the hippocampus, and the amygdala, causing memory loss, psychosis, and violent behavior. This stage is non-fatal, and will continue until the subject's death.
