Cursed with a degenerative disease after delving into the forbidden secrets of alchemy, the Mordesh (Second Human Empire name Hamo Co'lpmor Oikk'looi) have come to Nexus to find a cure for any kind of Outbreak. Being a space zombie can be complicated. Unleashing dark and deadly disciplines on the Axis and Coalition? Much simpler.
Before the Fall, Mordesh were presumed to have had skin colours, and hair very similar to humans. They were also very elf-like, being very tall, thin and elegant, with pointed ears. A picture of Dr. Victor Lazarin before the contagion shows him with light skin and black hair.
After the Fall and the ravages of the Contagion, Mordesh have a variety of sickly, pale, rotting skin, from blues, purples, greens, and even pinks. What little hair they have left is sparse, or replaced completely with mechanical decorations. Some Mordesh retain their original eyes, though most now have optic replacements; both take on the colour of their Vitalus serum.
One of the most striking features of the Mordesh are their mechanical body parts, usually filled with Vitalus serum or replacing a section that has completely rotted away. Though facial decorations may differ, a Mordesh will always have robotic parts at: their necks, shoulders forearms, the outside of their thighs, and the upper chest.
As a result of their rotting internals, all Mordesh speak with a gravely voice filtered through a voice modulator. They sound very similar to the Mechari.
