Abyss Mystics claim, “the Abyss exists within those who enter it.” They’re not just being poetic. An infantile bezoar is a living growth that occasions to manifest on the insides of any entity who consumes food or liquid in the Abyss. The bezoar starts insignificantly enough; a vampire foolish enough to drink from one of the rancid pools of blood or pillars of obsidian flesh stacked high in the Abyss may notice a tiny weight on her heart as the tumor grows. As each night passes, the bezoar gets larger. It continues to grow until it renders the heart an empty husk — draining all blood from it and then burrowing out through the vampire’s ribcage.
Abyss Mystics have studied the bezoar in attempts to find out what happens after it escapes its host, but are still to discover its adult form. Vampires in the know are sure to carve Bezoars from their hearts before succumbing to torpor.
