Because the strains already mutated, it jumps directly to the phase of conquering the body. If the body resists, the subject will awake became in a Blessed or in Blessed Type 2.
The parasite-fungus is active inside of their bodies but do not control them and they cannot control it either. However, they have some benefits, like regeneration. The Blessed do not have diseases or getting old, also their bodies have more strength and resistance. The disadvantage is that if they are exposed to heat sources, even if it is the sun, they get dry, like a leaf on the ground. So they need to be well hydrated all the time. The Blessed have between 50% and 70% of their tissues replaced with the fungus mycelia. Their characteristics marks are the deformed pupil, swollen veins in the face, arms, legs or abdomen, the women can have also in the breast. Last, they have mushrooms in the head replaced parts of the hair. Their blood is contagious.
BLESSED TYPE 2
These ones are like Type 1 except for the body marks. The Blessed Type 2 don have any of the characteristics of the Blessed Type 1. They usually have a discoloration in their skin (making it white), in their eyes (if they were brown, they will be yellow or if they were blue, they will be almost white) and in their hair (if it was black, now will be grey). For the rest, they are the same.
