the illuminid


 The Illuminid is synthetic. It is the most highly tuned and featherlight of mechanisms tooled by human hand. Within its smooth metallic shell you will find cunning clockwork spiders, gears of emerald, and springs of glimmering mercury. It is akin to a beautiful flower - yet is criminally evil. Its smile is reassuring, but its handshake is bitterly cold. As a courier of hope, it ferries disease on the high winds. In the breaking of droughts, it saturates the land with souring chemicals. The Illuminid is thought by some to be the crowning achievement of science - by others to be the hand- weapon of the devil.
