Perpetuals are a vestigial side-branch of humanity born with many gifts.[8] Naturally or artificially created, their most notable gift is their effective immortality which is sustained through rapid cellular regeneration. Perpetuals are capable of surviving dismemberment, suffocation, and even decapitation, eventually regenerating each time.[1a] The only known way of killing a perpetual is with a mysterious artifact known as the Fulgurite.[1b]

Humans can either be born as a Perpetual naturally, or become one through alien technology. The Cabal is capable of artificially producing human Perpetuals.[2] However, the exact origin of natural Perpetuals remains unknown, with some such as Alivia Sureka existing since Terra's ancient times.[7]
