Graftek

A dog-sized translucent box hovers quietly. Four glowing thruster-pods twitch on outstretched gimbals, constantly adjusting for minute eddies in the air. Underneath the box hang a variety of many-tooled tendrils.

Perfect

A Graftek is a creature that can only be found in the strata below the Trembling Dunes. Rather than attacking creatures it is hostile to, a Graftek will seek out creatures around it to graft, giving them various stat bonuses depending on the graft.

A Graftek will actively target other creatures on the map and will apply a graft to them when they are within 1 tile. It will apply grafts indiscriminately, whether the target is hostile, neutral, friendly, or even a companion to the player. It will continue to do so until it has grafted every creature in the current zone that it is able to reach/can be grafted; when it runs out of eligible targets, it will begin to wander around randomly.[1]

A Graftek can't graft creatures that have already been grafted. Additionally, it can't graft inanimate objects, metallic creatures, inorganic creatures, or other Grafteks.[2]

Grafts

A Graftek is able to apply three different grafts to creatures: grafted, cyberized, and chromed. Creatures that have been grafted will become metallicized, have their default color permanently changed depending on the graft, and will have the name of the graft appended to their name.[3]

Player Grafting

Normally, a Graftek will not seek out the player and won't apply a graft if they move close, even if they're friendly to robots. However, it will apply a graft to the player's body so long as they are not in control of it, such as when the player is dominating another creature. This can even be achieved by using a Ganglionic teleprojector.pngganglionic teleprojector on the Graftek itself; however, the player will have difficulty controlling it, as it will move around erratically even while being dominated.

Be wary; grafts are permanent and cannot be removed, and only one graft can be present on a creature at a time. There are also several drawbacks to a metallic body: Pulsed field magnet.pngpulsed field magnets become more of a concern, and the player can also be pulsed by EMP effects, although this currently does nothing.
