Nox and Lilith Flesher

Alastor’s youngest son, Nox Flesher, was an exceptional child, always designing and creating gadgets for the family home. He was considerably younger than his siblings and spent a great deal of time on his own as a boy. Many called him peculiar, sullen and said he lived in his own world. As a young adult he became more withdrawn, and began focusing his resourcefulness on mastering the skills of his forefathers. Nox attended university and excelled in the sciences. He immersed himself in the study of biology, chemistry, physics and anatomy. While at school he met his longtime partner Lilith.

The two adolescents fend for themselves, while Nox and Lilith continue their pursuit of finding a sustainable food source.

Lilith, working with her plants, dispensed apothecary to Nox to “inoculate” his specimens. She has mixed countless failed potions and destroyed many inferior plant hybrids. Nox invents crossbreeds as well, although his conceptions deviate from the horticultural arena Lilith endeavors to work in. His mongrels were born from animal, plant or humanoid composites. These hideous, pitiful creations suffered horribly during their short lives.

Collectively their experiments have grown more sinister, after hundreds of failed potions, concoctions, transfusions and transplants Lilith and Nox Flesher finally created the ultimate abomination…
