    Three-Mile, one of the example Zeky in Night Horrors: the Tormented, has cables and tubes making up most of her throat, and tubes running out of and back into her body — most of her skin used to be an experimental hazmat suit. The rest of the section she's mentioned in likewise discusses how the Nuclear Prometheans can be biomechanical horrors — the Thin Man has a wrist-mounted cannon, and Arclight has lighting coils coming out of their body.

    It's a long-established thing that Prometheans can be made from corpses with nonliving materials filling in the gaps, and the Unfleshed becoming a mainstream lineage in 2e further blurs the line, albeit usually not to the degree of explicit horror as the Zeky live with.

    • Assuming a Centimanus has access to Vitriol and wants to restart their Pilgrimage, can they Calcify Flux Alembics? Or is that not something they can do because the Refinement of Flux has no Roles?

        I dont think "calcify" and flux are compatable. But I could see a sort of Jovian cousin Athanor.

          On the one hand, Centimani who'd changed their bodies with Pandoran Transmutations retained them in 1e. On the other hand, 2e models that with the Mutation Alembic's Persistent effect, which explicitly doesn't require you to retain the use of the Alembic to keep those changes.

          On the one hand, the entropic tilt of Flux is such that it would make sense for it to be possible for an adherent to the philosophy of the force that mutates things into uselessness to be able to permanently dedicate part of their metaphysical nature to powers built to serve that force's non-purposes. On the other hand, the easiest way to retain powers useful for Centimani is by remaining a Centimanus, particularly since instead of Role mastery Flux Alembics are gained as a function of time spend in the Refinement.

          I'd lean no, if only because there's no listed drawbacks of using Flux Alembics while not being a Centimanus and the one example of retaining an effect past the abandoning of the Refinement marks the permanent acquisition of entropic Transmutations as a step backwards for characters that normally have stopped tracking steps on the Pilgrimage.
