Very interesting. Looking forwards to seeing where this goes.

Either one of you can post now, btw.

Question: can the symbiotes tap into a human's brain while they're asleep and steal knowledge/memories without actually merging with them?  (I.E. host is unsuitable, but the symbiote needs their knowledge before moving to a new host.)

Yes. That's what tylers symboiant did to him before thy merged. But they have to be outside of a human host to do so. Nerve-covered sharp legs straight into the spinal cord. Due to the syboyants.... let's say venom, the wounds heal in about 4 hours.

Or they can do a weak mental probe. But that's not that effective and only works on weak minded individuals. They're really more empaths than telepaths.

One last question: how long can a symbiote live outside the host?  The backstory requires the symbiont draining knowledge from two different individuals, and mentally probing a third (this is all distant past).  One is a scientist who was working on [REDACTED], possibly the one who killed the previous host after the mental probing of the third person, and the second one is a politician who has been arrested and sentenced to execution for sparking a series of incidents that led to a horrific massacre.  I need to know if it happened during one period between hosts or across two different such periods.  (I.E. Mental probe of Person 3, death, Knowledge probe Person 1, Knowledge probe person 2, new host vs. Mental probe of Person 3, death, Knowledge probe Person 1, new host, death, knowledge probe person 2, new host)

they can live almost indefinitely outside a human host but they are very physically vulnerable. after about a month in normal conditions their exoskeletons and nerve'd claws start to shrivel, unless they stay moist (the human body is plenty moist enough) or in water. they prefer freshwater especially swamps, though saltwater or even a bathtub will do.

OK, profile is ready.  I'm still working on some backstory, but I think I'm ready to start.

Flipz:
Species: Symbiotic Hybrid
Name: Regulus
Human Name: Amarus Zagrene
Profession: theoretical physicist, nobleman.
Appearance: Pale-skinned,  just over six feet tall, with messy brown hair and an omnipresent smirk, Zagrene's other features are fairly nondescript.  Whether this is due to actual bland appearance or Regulus' tendency to vanish from others' memories remains to be seen.
Style: The most stylish dark crimson body armor chestplate money can buy.  Regulus has made modern armor fashionable--a good thing, considering the high lethal turnover rate for personnel at his facility.  He wears sleek, dark blue slacks, with his I.D. and a few other implements hanging from his belt.
Bio: For decades, perhaps centuries, Regulus has been pursuing perhaps the most dangerous and insane scientific goal ever known to intelligent life.  For the past six generations, however, he slowed his research, and chose to remain within the male line of a single noble family, one he named "Regulus" in honor of himself.  When his most recent host was killed, his son was still too young to safely join, so instead Regulus selected his former host's closest friend, a writer by the name of Amarus Zagrene.  As guardian of young Arthur (and as specified in the late Lord Regulus' will), Zagrene is considered a full-fledged member of the noble family and retains the title of Lord Regulus.

I'm not normally one to toot my own horn, but I have to say I am VERY pleased with my reply to Viktor in the RPG just now.  Especially considering I still have no idea of the actual answer to that question. XD Tongue

Btw, temporary hosts are plenty possible, but disconnecting before a merege is complete really disorients a syboyant. They usually choose to kill the temp hosts as they'd go crazy, and know too much otherwise.

Yeah, but I need Dr. Allen later. Tongue  But in-character, Regulus couldn't afford for Dr. Allen to go missing, the wrong people would notice and he wouldn't have time to get to the surface.

Next time it'll be worse, he'll be less prepared for the situation, so he won't be able to do as well.  Fortunately for Regulus, the next subject's gonna die anyway, which is why he has to rush things.

OOC: that was awesome.

Which part, the Wikipedia article, or the flashback? Grin

I spent the better part of an hour on the WP article, the flashback was basically writing by the seat of my pants. Tongue

 Grin Grin Grin

I waded through a lot of WP template pages and copied the text from the relevant pages.  I would have done the "notice" boxes completely accurately, but I couldn't figure out the BBCode to do that, and the images for those boxes are maunally resized on-page, which I don't know how to do here, either.

Also, in case anyone's wondering, the Duke of Regulus was created, secretly, just before the Duke of Sutherland, meaning it is second ranked among all the dukes in the peerage of the U.K., but below the royal dukes, the dukes of England, Scotland, Great Britain, and Ireland (with the exception of the Duke of Abercorn, which it outranks).

Actually, it's a sort of behind-the-scenes power.  Sure, the average commoner won't take particular notice of a duke, but in the political arena they're the ones who everyone owes favors of one kind or another to.  It's a sort of covert, hidden society that exists even in the U.S., but in the U.S. it's linked more directly to either low-publicity high-power government bureaucracy positions or to corporate high-rollers.
