[Elaboration on Calypso's body]
Abnormal Physiology -
Calypso was certainly a being that was born… Very different. Caly’s body is not a typical body grown from cells and a genetic code, but rather an energy-based body. In reality, Caly’s body is gigantic, but as of this time, she is unable to stabilize even a quarter of it in the real world; It requires too much energy to do so, and thus has to store majority of her body in her Conceptual World. She is able to summon more of her body into the real world, via the branch off point that is her eyes. Her eyes, in actuality, are containers for her soul, in which her body is pulled from. How her body moves and shapes is dictated by her thoughts; aside from instinctual movements, all of Calypso’s bodily actions are voluntary.
How her body forms has shown to be very strongly tied to her thoughts, for this is the reason why she possesses a human form, with features similar to those of her family, and has taken specifically a female shape; She’s used to the idea of females, and her family. This isn’t just skin deep, however. Aside from the veins that pump liquid energy from her incorporeal body, stemming from her eyes, and through her body to sustain herself, Caly doesn’t really need most organs, though she feels she needs a heart, lungs, a form of stomach cavity, and sexual organs.
How her body reacts to the world is very similar to nerves, still being able to feel pain and suffering, hot and cold, like any other being, which is why she doesn’t need it, her incorporeal mind that stretches the entirety of her body can easily be described as her “brain”, she just absorbs the entirety of anything she physically eats, eliminating the need for majority of her digestive system as she doesn’t produce waste, and she doesn’t have bones because her body can hold itself together just fine with her mind and stability in check.
Because of this total autonomy over her flesh, she is able to physically reject anything she feels she doesn’t wish to welcome into her body, effectively acting as her own immune system, however, it isn’t like she really has cells that diseases can destroy, or most organs that they afflict, so this more or less applies to harmful substances over tiny body destroyers.
In terms of improvement of physiology, Caly’s body is much like anyone else’s. If she wanted to strengthen herself, she would have to go through the same hurdles anyone else had to; she can’t tighten her muscles and instantly be able to chuck a building. Anything like that would be purely cosmetic and wouldn’t actually strengthen her, if anything it could prove to be more painful than helpful considering the strain required. Same thing applies to stamina, speed, etc. Her mind isn’t completely over her matter.
Calypso’s regeneration abilities are pretty straightforward for the most part; Her body typically closes her wounds first, and then works down into healing them just to prevent loss of fluid. Though, she is still able to feel the pain of the wound for some time, even if it’s gone. Be it remnants of the pain shining too strongly in her memories, or her body actually being a retainer of pain for longer than normal beings, is something she isn’t too sure of.» Why:
This isn't really a power upgrade, it's more an elaboration on how Caly's body functions that I feel should be added to her profile. Just posting this here so I know got everything straight.» Extra:
Anyone else smell copper?
