RPC-355-1 contained in Site-031-1. Note exudation of infected sap from photographed branch.

Containment Protocols: Parts of RPC-355-1 are currently contained at Site-008 in a standard pathogen vault at Section Alpha in a category one refrigerator with a level 4 hermetic seal equipped with an industrial grade air filter. To avoid an on-site containment breach, RPC-355-1's containment zone should be equipped with several liquid nitrogen dispensers installed into the main chamber. The entrance to RPC-355-1 containment area must be guarded with personnel armed with standard ballistic and incendiary munitions.

In the event of a containment breach, Site-008 must execute contingency plan 355-λ, designation “Fire Curtain”. Authority personnel who become infected are to be terminated and their bodies incinerated are to be sent to Site-031-2 for further testing and containment.

Instances of RPC-355-2 are to be contained in standard humanoid containment cells at Site-031-2, with access to purified water and artificial sunlight. Instances are allowed limited socialization privileges for no more than four (4) hours per day, in groups no larger than six (6). In the event of an RPC-355-2 instance reaching the end of its natural lifespan, its corpse is to be buried in Sub-Level 5 of Site 031-2.

Trees infected with RPC-355-1 are to be incinerated and their seeds taken to Site-031-1 for study. Only one tree infected with RPC-355-1 is to be planted in Site-031-1 at any given time. In the event of an RPC-355-1 instance being spotted outside of containment or in an event related to the Group of Interest “The Descendants of Yggdrasil”, contingency plan 355-η designation “Californian Wildfire” must be activated to prevent an epidemic.

Description: RPC-355-1 is a category A viral pathogen1 found in the Xylem sap of trees that produce human edible tree sap. Most notably Boxelder trees2 being the main victims of RPC-355-1 spread.

The main means of contagion of RPC-355-1 is direct consumption of the unrefined sap with an index of 97% of secure infection, other means include consumption of the tree's leaves, contact with the tree’s roots and ingestion of refined sap from heavily infected trees.

RPC-355-1 begins its anomalous process of infection when a human contracts RPC-355-1. The individual now designated as RPC-355-2, begins phasing through several stages of transformation, changing its DNA sequence in the first week of infection to undergo full transformation into a hybrid of human and plant, named Homo plantae sapiens.3

The type of plant RPC-355-2 will evolve into will be directly related to the area of birth, e.g. a subject who was born in a humid and rich environment relating to the soil and water, will evolve to possess characteristics of plants in those regions, whilst a subject born in a cold and frigid environment will correspondingly adopt traits of plants from that region.

Infected subjects can take up to 3 recorded years to show any symptoms related to RPC-355-1. Only RPC-355-1 is capable of infecting humans, while instances of RPC-355-2 are non-infectious towards other humans. Cures for RPC-355-1 and early stages of RPC-355-2 are undergoing development within Site-008.
