Book Text

First attempt at grafting subject to main assembly.

During the spinal puncture at the base of the skull the subject began screaming uncontrollably.
The frequency of the screams shifted up in pitch by 20 Hz during the procedure.
Curious to know if this is an unintended side effect of the grafting.
This process is quite time consuming and delicate, after suffering through the subject screaming for an hour we resorted to severing the vocal cords.
Removal of the vocal cords required close attention to the facial expressions of the subject as our primary means of feedback during the procedure.

Fifth attempt at skeletal grafting.

The subject began to resist the laceration of flesh from the localized area. It was decided that appendage prosthesis was the solution.
Interestingly, as the arms and legs were removed, the subject fell into a strange dreamlike state.
Must note this for a potential side project in the future.
Upon waking, the subject vomited into the main assembly.
Rather than sterilize the assembly, we opted to go forward with the procedure.

Third attempt at binding the organs to the harness.

The initial subject for this procedure was rejected after the incision was made.
Opposition to having the abdominal cavity exposed is not conducive to this process.
The following subject did much better, with the exception of profuse crying caused by the extreme discomfort of having their organs removed while awake.
It is advised that the subject be unconscious during this phase of grafting.

Regarding optical grafting and enucleation.

Several methods were attempted to remove the eyes of a myriad of test subjects:
Searing out the eyes only cauterized the ocular sockets, making them unusable.
Vacuum ended up removing most of the nerves, preventing interface with the harness.
Evisceration with a blade requires too steady of a hand and leaves too great of a margin for error and socket damage.
It has been deemed that the superior method involves striking the base of the subject’s skull forcefully with a blunt object, separating them cleanly from the sockets.

Twentieth attempt at flushing the circulatory system.

It should be noted that almost all of the subjects that survived the first few minutes reported sensations of extreme burning from within.
The only surviving subject calmed after the sensation subsided, but began to lose fluid from their pores. Anima fluid began to pool and flow from the surface of the skin. Suggest a much more viscous formula for the fluid.

After hundreds of useless subjects, we’ve finally had one survive the entire grafting procedure!
This is wonderful indeed!
General Blythe will be quite pleased with these results.
Soon, we’ll be able to begin streamlined grafting on a much larger scale.
