#???: Cantagion (cancer + contagion)
Cantagion is one of the Disaster Quartet, legendaries born out of the fear of human-created and cosmic disasters. Cantagion had been seen several times during pandemics and plagues in antiquity, and was captured during the most recent uncontrolled pandemic, when a severe norovirus spread among the Second Crossing population after Second Crossing soldiers and adepts returned to Nalea from Third Crossing-controlled Johto.
There were plans to use it offensively, but the energy-based diseases it can spread are wholly indifferent to factors like "friend", "foe", "handwashing", or "sterilization". Cantagion is kept under heavy containment at [REDACTED].
Design notes: Starfish, skin diseases, gross stuff
