Metabolism Fleshbud is a Bonded Artifact of equipment in Torment: Tides of Numenera.
Description[edit | edit source]
This pod-like lump of Bloom-flesh has the shape and size of a small, hemispherical bit of fruit. That is where the similarities end, as the fleshbud is quivering and still very much alive. A mangle of teeth and tongue-like protrusions appear on one side whenever the lump is anywhere close to living flesh. When applied to bare skin, the fleshbud bites and grafts itself to the host, taking on the texture and appearance of the host's skin. Once attached, it vastly improves the metabolic processes of the host, increasing quick reaction speed.
