Elohim Embryo Chamber
Elohim Embryo Chamber
– A small sized egg shaped device that contains the genetic matrix of a thousand Elohims. The device is then placed in a pool of lava or fire and then it activates allowing the embryos to reach maturity in 30 days. It was one of the more powerful inventions of the Elohim Empire using elemental magic and technology E-Tech.
For the Embryo Chamber to function it also needed a number of humanoids host that will be possessed by the energy beings. The Elohims will mature inside their host and absorb the corporal mass of the host changing it into an Elohim.
The second important information on the data crystal found that was unknown to the public is that the Elohims develop the elemental technology to create the Elohim Embryo Chamber and to be able to multiply in great numbers using a volcanic planet. What is more secret is that they used a thousand living humanoids in the same place were the Elohim Embryo Chamber was activated, during the process, the energy form of the Elohims will enter humanoids bodies and grow to full maturity in 30 days. In short terms, they multiply rapidly using other races as hosts.

Zee Egghead 827: " What the Elohims have been able to create with this device is to create full grown and sentient clones of themselves in only 30 days using the bodies of the hosts as Cloning Tank, the DNA on the vials as Brain Pattern Transfer and transforming the heat and vapors on energy for the complete conversion. This device is a genuine work of art that could be considered PL9 per se. The only problem is that only works with the elemental nature of the Elohims. "
Mar’IigniaS’irthiz: " Patients Irymer and Zyx’Pon’Fed’khan have been isolated. Their bodies are in a constant monitor process. Trying to remove the embryo from the host surgically makes the embryo attack the host, using energy drain. Keeping the subjects (or hosts) within a heat providing environment maintains the normal ratio of reproduction of the embryo to 30 days. "
Shuvers Aellyez: " Studying the Elohim Embryos we have discovered that they are designed to try to survive even if the host health is compromise. A host without a direct source of heat will accelerate the process from 30 days to half that. If exposed to cold to try to kill the Embryo, the creature will drain the host of life to extend their own life, killing the host in less than 7 days (energy drain). An Embryo outside a host only survives for 2 to 5 minutes. An Embryo outside a host is automatically killed by exposure to cold damage. "
