Tears of the Dragon
The Tears of the Dragon are a type of artificially created psycho-viral infection that is made by the Adeptus Mechanicus of the Imperium. Through the so called meme-viruses, the Adeptus Mechanicus use these viral strains to condition the mind of their servants in order to prepare them for future hardships. The Tears of the Dragon are one of the most rare and hazardrous of these creations and are most often used on the elite members of the Skitarii Centurions. After a subject has been infected, they fall into a deathly feverish state where they are assailed by pre-recorded visions and sense-recorded perceptions of the worst horrors that the Cult Mechanicus has encountered in its long history. Those that survive the meme-virus fever with their sanity intact find themselves having conquered fear and the frailities of human sanity.
