Mysterious Death



Ah, life is cruel.  Dancing happily to the pianola one minute (courtesy of injecting and then removing the cave flies - leaving the purple mountain alcohol behind), then you become a woman at the ripe old age of one hour and twenty minutes old... and promptly keel over dead.  


The norn autopsy (courtesy of CrEd32) suggested Sudden Import Death Syndrome, which didn't make sense, because I hadn't imported her:  
  • NFP 151
  • Hunger 254
  • Tiredness 110
  • Sleepiness 45
  • Loneliness 1
  • Boredom 255
  • Sex Drive 99
  • Hunger-- 3
  • Reinforcement 2
  • Reward Echo 4
  • Ageing 193
  • Glucose 233
  • Glycogen 185
  • Oestrogen 111
  • Purple Mountain Norn Alcohol 150
  • IV Cough Medicine 255
  • Antibody 0, 1, 2 and 3: 228
  • Antibody 4: 69
So I delved into her genes.  While there were several genes that had mutated slightly, these ones have surprised me:


Child Moniker: 4YOG

Gene 01 00 03 has mutated:
       Mask:          **            
      Child: 01 05 02 02 00 00 FF 00
    Parents: 01 05 02 03 00 00 FF 00

      Child: 03 E - Mut/Dup/Del Creature : Drive : Hunger. Need for Pleasure binds to receptor. Threshold level=00 Nominal Output=00 Gain=FF Output=Neither
    Parents: 03 E - Mut/Dup/Del Creature : Drive : Hunger. Hunger binds to receptor. Threshold level=00 Nominal Output=00 Gain=FF Output=Neither

- does NFP now drive her hunger?

Gene 01 01 01 has mutated:
       Mask: **                     
      Child: 01 08 01 34 00 01 FF 01
    Parents: 00 08 01 34 00 01 FF 01

      Child: 01 E - Mut/Dup/Del Creature : Unknown Tissue (8) : . conASH released from emitter. Threshold level=00 Sample Rate=01 Gain=FF Emitter type= Analog (o/p = (signal - threshold) * Gain) (Clear Source after reading)
    Parents: 01 E - Mut/Dup/Del Brain : Lobe 8 : # Loose dens/cells type 0. conASH released from emitter. Threshold level=00 Sample Rate=01 Gain=FF Emitter type= Analog (o/p = (signal - threshold) * Gain) (Clear Source after reading)

- What's an unknown tissue, and what did this gene do originally?

Gene 01 00 14 has mutated:
       Mask:    **                  
      Child: 01 03 00 3F 00 00 FF 00
    Parents: 01 02 00 3F 00 00 FF 00

      Child: 14 Y F Mut/Dup/Del Creature : Immune : Die of Non-Zero!. Oestrogen binds to receptor. Threshold level=00 Nominal Output=00 Gain=FF Output=Neither
    Parents: 14 Y F Mut/Dup/Del Creature : Reproductive : Become fertile if high. Oestrogen binds to receptor. Threshold level=00 Nominal Output=00 Gain=FF Output=Neither

- Did she die because she started menstruating?

Gene 01 02 26 has mutated:
       Mask: **                        
      Child: 00 FB 04 3A 01 F3 01 05 50
    Parents: 02 FB 04 3A 01 F3 01 05 50

      Child: 26 E - Mut/Dup/Del 0 Antigen 3 + 4 Glucose -> 1 Antibody 3 + 1 Hotness, Rate=80
    Parents: 26 E - Mut/Dup/Del 2 Antigen 3 + 4 Glucose -> 1 Antibody 3 + 1 Hotness, Rate=80

- So, pretty much constant antibody 3, in exchange for a permanent drain on glucose?

Gene 02 05 11 has mutated:
       Mask:                      **   
      Child: 03 0B 00 00 00 00 0B 39 FF
    Parents: 03 0B 00 00 00 00 0B 31 FF

      Child: 11 C - Mut/Dup/Del If the following is present: Verb | Travel East, - and if you ::Travel East:: (Chemical 57 is released) - Level 255
    Parents: 11 C - Mut/Dup/Del If the following is present: Verb | Travel East, - and if you ::Travel East::  you get a reward of 255

- So if someone says 'left' and you travel left, you get a really big meal out of it???

Could she have died from starting menstruation?  Looking at her father's genome, all of his female-related genes look fine - so it must have just been a spontaneous mutation at birth.  

If anyone would like to investigate her genome further, it's available for download below:
