Mortasheen Race II- Sectilian by scythemantis Mortasheen Race II- Sectilian by scythemantis
Created by the same process as Arthropoid-class monsters, Sectilians are humans and insects that appear to have "swapped" some of their anatomical plan rather than fusing into a perfect new species, though inside what resembles a giant termite's head or a scorpion's tail is still human bone and muscle. Sectilians are nowhere near as powerful as a true Arthropoid, yet leaps and bounds superior to normal Homo sapiens while retaining more intelligence and free will than a complete fusion, making them ideal candidates for the monster keeper lifestyle.

Webster from my flash cartoons doesn't really exist in Mortasheen continuity, but still works as an example of a possible Sectilian character. Keep in mind, their insect features aren't at all as powerful as Arthropoid monsters and mostly superficial; they don't get any cool powers, they're just tough to kill and funny looking.

The scariest part is picturing Webster with that human head. He'd look like some Serial killer XD.

Anywho. This is TOTALLY what I would want to play as! Maybe some manner of Earwig or Cicada wearing a nice suit....

I see, so let's say a spider Sectilian wouldn't be able to produce web nor have a venomous bite? I like that actually, I love bug-people they're so much fun to draw and design.

I have a question, though, are all sectilians linked to a smaller bug-human counterpart?

Yep! Their bug-human will follow them around unless they were to get rid of it or eat it or maybe transfer its consciousness into some other monster (making a pretty obedient minion of limited intellect, one of the best kind!)

I figure Sectilians may sometimes be able to produce webbing or venom, but it's no more effective than any tools or weapons a character could carry around anyway...gaining spinnerets is like having some decent rope on you all the time.

Decent rope is still pretty handy, especially if you wouldn't have to devote inventory space to it. Sorta what TV Tropes would call "Boring, But Practical."

Wait, only insects? No arachnids, myriapods, crustaceans?
Then what's my Yeti Crab 'sectilian' count as?

QUESTIONS ALERT

Er, how does a scorpion's tail switch with a corresponding hman component? Does it switch to the tip of human tailbone?

It's impossible to be born a Sectilian, correct? But if they have the proper reproductive organs, can they still bear human children? If so, a Sectilian would be compelled to turn their children into Sectilians?

Speaking of the children thing, I assume in Mortasheen there are as broad an outlook on the subject of parenting as anything else, correct? There would be the people who would throw themselves into the path of an Esophagulet, and those who'd just as soon turn them into Larvaeform Arthropoids, yes? Actually, I can imagine Sectilians doing that if they can reproduce...

So are the little bugs flying around with human pieces Sectilians, too? Like, is it intelligent, and can you play as it?
I'd likelypick the Gill Men, though.

You play as both at the same time. The human with bug parts and bug with human parts are mentally linked forever.

finally some people to look up to :)

I'd be really tempted to play as a Webster-like character, though.
