Background

The Earth is bombarded by hundreds of thousands of meteorites a day. Most burn up in the atmosphere, but a few are tough enough make it through and make planet fall. One night in the Everglades, there was a meteor shower. The night sky was a streak of dying pieces of space matter. In a way it was quite beautiful.

Bobby Jo and his girlfriend Bobby Sue sat close to one another in Bobby Jo’s daddy’s swamp boat watching the meteor show, his arm around her shoulders. Bobby Sue was rapped in the spectacle before them. As for Bobby Jo, he wondered if he could get to second base tonight with Bobby Sue.

The boat rocked a little in the breeze, and the sounds of the swamp critters, the frogs, and the alligators practically serenaded the pair. For Bobby Jo, it was a magical night. He was certain to score tonight; now if he could only get Bobby Sue’s attention. However, her attention was on the sky and not on Bobby Jo.

“Wow, would’cha look at that,” gushed Bobby Sue pointing up into the night sky.

“Yeah,” said Bobby Jo, not paying the least bit of attention to what his girl friend had said. He was more interest in how her breasts bunched up when she raised her arm.

“That’er one looks like it’sa comin’ this’er way,” said Bobby Sue, a note of concern in her voice.

“Right,” said Bobby Jo, again oblivious.

It was the sound that brought Bobby Jo out of his fantasies. The swamp critters had gone totally silent, and then came a whistling sound that was getting louder and louder as seconds past. Bobby Jo barely had time to look up, before the meteorite came flying at hundreds of miles a second slammed into his daddy’s swamp boat. Fortunately the meteorite was only about the size of a baseball.

There was a loud explosion as the swamp boat cracked in two. The two teenagers where thrown from the boat. Bobby Sue was the first to break the surface, and she called out to Bobby Jo, but he didn’t answer.

Deep in the muck at the bottom of the swamp, the Collective seethed. Their trip across the stars from their dieing planet has lasted for untold time. Now the Collective sensed new life around itself, life that was just waiting to be conquered and consumed. From the only remaining fragment of their lost home world the Collective reached out. What they found was Bobby Jo. The teenager had died in the collision, but dead or living flesh meant nothing to the Collective. Bobby Jo was brought into the Collective and made one with them.

Bobby Sue had swam to a nearby hummock and tried her best to figure out how to get out of the swamp and get some help. Exhausted and not in a little pain of her own her own; she didn’t at first notice the glow coming from the water. The thing that was Bobby Jo slowly rose from the fetid waters of the swamp. However, other than a vaguely humanoid shape, there was no resemblance to Bobby Jo. Bobby Sue took one look at the thing before screaming. She was to become the second victim to the Collective. There were to be many more.

Floating out of the swamp, the monster the press had later dubbed Miasma set out to conquer the organic creatures that thought they ruled the world. The Collective made no attempt communicate with the bipeds they were here to conquer.

Personality

The Collective is a collective alien intelligence. As such it defies description by human standards. To humans, Miasma seems totally alien and inhuman. The Collective cares little about human life, so long as it can serve the Collective, even the dead are of some use to the Collective.

The goal of the Collective is the collectivization of the Earth. Miasma will stop at nothing to achieve this goal. It’ll throw endless hordes of animated bodies at it’s foes to achieve its end. Defeat is something the Collective has very rarely encountered.

Quote

Miasma makes no attempt to communicate.

Powers

Miasma is a large alien cloud-like collective intelligence. As a gaseous cloud, most attacks have little effect on it, due to Miasma being practically intangible. However, there are times, when Miasma can become completely intangible. These are also usually the time Miasma loses control of it’s animated corpses or its servitors. Because of Miasma’s gaseous nature, the cloud can fly in almost any direction, even underwater. Miasma can also create hundreds of feelers in all directions.

Miasma has only one powerful attack, but it’s extremely powerful. It can turn or “collectivize” anyone it touches with one of its feelers. Those who become possessed by the Collective become one of their servitors and become loyal only to the Collective. Generally the only way to free a victim is to remove it from the Collective, by force, and keep the victim away for some time. Miasma has a secondary attack, but it’s more insidious than the first. The Collective can seize control of any dead organism and animate it by the power of the Collective.

Miasma sees everything around it, and lack of light doesn’t hamper it in the least.

Appearance

In it's more basic form Miasma looks like a gigantic cloud of softly glowing green gas. At times, however, Miasma takes on a vaguely humanoid shape, but essentially it's still a cloud. Why Miasma does this remains unknown because Miasma to date has made no effort to communicate with humans. Those whom become "collectivized", or dead bodies animated by Miasma take on the greenish glow of Miasma.
