Mutation may start slow. It may be imperceptible. But when it starts spreading, it does not stop until we’re utterly transformed.
The Wanderer is a curious exception. He has the uncanny ability to partially control the tentacles of mutation within him. A highly regarded agent of the Resistance, when the first signs of mutation manifested he left the Fortress in the middle of the night and has since lived on its outskirts. Many assume he is an outcast, but his ties to the Resistance are still strong.
