Hacromula disease is a metamorphic disease transmitted through the bite of a Licarus worm, at least that’s what most of the people and some of the “experts” think. Symptoms can include skin rash, joint inflammation, fever, headache, fatigue, and muscle pain at early stages. Hacromula disease is also called Ri’Poalda Yabli in the language of the true offspring.
Despite the Hacromula disease is classified by many as a metamorphic, systemic disease, meaning that it affects multiple body systems, it’s not in fact a disease at all. Although signs of Hacromula disease have been reported for more than 100 years, the disease was not recognized as a real threat until now, when a cluster of unusual cases of chronic deformities, lost of self control and unnatural aggressive behavior in all the surrounding areas of Gilgarem, Marzaks, led local techquimists to discover that town residents living near heavily wooded areas were severely affected by a rare case of Hacromula attach to other new and unexpected symptoms. Licarus worm bites were then linked to the cause of the deformity cases. The spiral-shaped bite, left by the Licarus worm, called an Akmilurue, that causes Hacromula disease, was found to be substituted now, by the worm itself , in 1415 A.R.O. by Edabor Burgdulak of Simri.
Although Hacromula disease was, in the early days, easily treated, with the appearance of this new symptoms, now is considered a very dangerous, highly contagious, and barley treatable disease. If not treated immediately and properly, Hacromula disease can have long-term and disabling effects. In its early stages, Hacromula disease affects the skin and produces flu-like symptoms; once the disease spreads to the joints and nerves system, the symptoms will escalate to auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking; until it reach the point of causing chronic deformities, complete lost of self control, unnatural aggressive behavior and death in its later stages.
Hacromula disease was considered a moyde-borne disease, meaning that it is transmitted from one host to another by a carrier—called a moyde—that transmits but does not become infected with the disease. At least that was what they thought at the moment. New studies about this increasing menace, have provide more insights into this matter. The so called Hacromula disease is not a disease, in fact there is no Hacromula disease at all, it is a parasite. The Licarus doesn’t transmit a disease, it is the root of the symptoms.
In the early days, the Licarus, affected the host while feeding on blood. Licarus worms were most likely to remain attached and feeding for two days at most. In which time the host suffer from skin rash, joint inflammation, fever, headache, fatigue, and muscle pain. After which the Licarus worm leaves the host (leaving the notable Akmilurue) to lay eggs and close its reproductive cycle by dying to provide food for the unborn offspring. In most areas, Licarus worms are most active during “The Falls Season”, but in milder climates, Licarus worms may bite year-round.
Nowadays Licarus worms feed on an alarming number of creatures, and it doesn’t leave the host until the host is dead. During this period, the worm lay eggs inside the host, which consume the host at an accelerated rate until they reach maturity. At this stage, the attach engender secretes a substance that move through the bloodstream quickly. Only half a day after entering the bloodstream, this substance can be found in cerebrospinal fluid (which means it can affect the nervous system). The result is, total control of the host by the Licarus worm. It most commonly manifests as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking. The host also may be largely mute, remain motionless in bizarre postures, or exhibit purposeless agitation, followed by chronic deformities, lost of self control and unnatural aggressive behavior. Until final stages where the host lose its fur, skin turns emerald black, holes start to appear sprouting incandescent light emanated from the growing Licari inside the organs, and finally bones start to show up as the new mature Licari begin to leave the now inert body in an attempt to find a new host. At the stage in which the Licarus worm gain control of the host the “Hacromula disease” can be transmitted directly from one person to another or from any infected creature to any person by a simple bite full of vicious immature Licari seeking new host .
Changes in behavior of the Licarus worm and the precise cause of this new symptoms are unknown at the moment. But, I will conduct more experiments to bring you further information.
Hacromula disease was a moyde-borne disease found in the floating layer of Marzaks, near 1300 A.R.O. But, at this moment a considerable amount of Hacromula cases are appearing out of Marzaks, and are spreading rapidly to nearby Layers.
There is no real treatment for this. If an attached Licarus worm is found that is engorged with blood and no signs of rash around the area (usually indicating attachment for no more than an hours) you still in time, but you have to act quickly. Remove the Licarus worm with haste, using anything that can give you a firm grip of the worm, like some kind of pincers, and pull with all your might. Remember, there’s no time to be gentle. Immediately burn the Licarus worm to assure its extermination. After removing the worm, clean the small affected area with any flammable spirit and with out drying it, set it on fire for no more than a few seconds, to eliminate any possibility of eggs left behind.
If, in 2 hours, there is no sign of any skin rash (not associated with the burning flesh), it means that there are no traces of Licari or Licarus eggs in the body. But, if the rash appear, you’ll have to amputate the area if it’s possible, and burn the open wound. If not possible, there’s nothing you can do. At the moment you notice that, it’s a matter of hours for the infected to become aggressive and try to infect others. And the outcome of this situation will depend on what you think is the best solution for all the uninfected that surround you. And it’s not always an easy solution.
