Not really a species, just using this place holder

Felled Bile is a thick, black, slimy liquid secreted from the live and/or gall bladder of a Felldrinker Bat (found only on the planet Xodus, as so far known). It is then infused with the saliva of the same animal and becomes an extremely poisonous substance. It is anticholinergic in nature- meaning that the poison targets the central and peripheral nervous systems, messing around with parasympathetic nerve impulses.

Political Importance[]

Felled Bile is only found on Xodus and is thus highly valued. Because of its unique chemical composition, Felled Bile is able to become a solute for many other substances. It has been used, most notably, on Scrudua Elira in an attempt to "dispose" of her for political reasons. It will most certainly be a crucial part of Xodus's economy once the inhabitants thereof begin to communicate with outside systems. 

Symptoms and Reversible Agents[]

There are very few reversible agents for the poison Felled Bile. Folklore on its planet of origin suggests an herbal remedy made from the yellow flower Kookomesha- which is found only in planets of the Jaezath System. Kookomesha, however, has its own drawbacks and is only used as a last resort. Nicotine and Caffiene will also counteract symptoms for some time, but do not actually reverse the poison at its root. They moreso delay, suppress or hide symptoms.

Possible symptoms of Felled Bile include:

  • Loss of voluntary muscle coordination
  • Decreased mucus production- consequent dry, sore throat
  • Dry mouth
  • Tooth pain and excessive cavities if poison is survived
  • No persipiration- consequent warm, dry, red, blotchy skin
  • Increased body temperature
  • Pupil dialation- consequent sensitivity to bright light
  • Loss of focusing ability, blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Increased heart rate
  • Shaking
  • High fluid pressure in the eyes
  • Respiratory Depression
  • Sudden drop in blood pressure
  • Delerium- Confusion, distorientation, agitation, swings of euphoria and dysphoria, memory problems, inability to concentrate, incoherent speech, sensitivity to sudden sounds, illogical thinking, phobia of light, visual disturbances, vivid hallucinations.
  • Possible seizures or muscle twitching
  • Possible coma
  • Death a 96% chance within one hour if left untreated
