"It can enter any hole of your body."
- The Naked Nest's entry

The Naked Nest (O-02-74) is a spherical Abnormality, similar to a rock, covered in a strange brownish substance, has multiple holes of different sizes on its surface, and seems attached to the floor. It acts as a hive or nest, and while in work, worms of the same color come out of the holes.

Ability Edit

Its ability triggers upon ending a work. When finishing a work, the containment room will be covered by a screen effect similar to the surface of the Abnormality for a few moments. Afterwards, the work will end normally. During that moment, the employee might get infected and present symptoms after getting out. The chance of getting infected is increased when the employee has lower HPIcon HP and has received damage in the work. However, this is not activated if the result of the work is Good MoodGood.

At first, there are no initial effects, but as time passes, the employee will begin to show symptoms, namely a green cloud around the employee, their skin turning green, and a much slower MovementSpeedIcon Movement Speed. If an infected employee is near another non-infected employees, the infection might spread to the closer employees. After presenting symptoms for some time, the employee will transform into a minion of The Naked Nest.

The transformed employee will have a new appearance, similar to a humanoid version of the nest. The uncontrollable employee will discard their weapons and attack employees with their bare hands, inflicting RedDamageTypeIcon Red Damage and having a possibility of infecting additional employees. Infected employees will not be targets of the transformed ones and will not attack the transformed ones, but they will attack the infected ones if they are trying to suppress them. In case the attacking employee is transformed while being attack by other transformed employees, they will continue to attack that target for some time until leaving the area.

The transformed employees are considered 'Out of Control' and can still be HPHealingMPHealing healed by the Main Rooms.

Origin Edit

Its origin is currently unknown.

Details Edit

The Naked Nest responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Instinct Instinct; Repression Repression; Attachment Attachment; Insight Insight.

Like all Abnormalities, its energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.

The Naked Nest's emotional state is divided into 3 sections: Bad MoodBad, Normal MoodNormal, and Good MoodGood. Completing 0-8 E Boxes will cause it to feel Bad MoodDistressed, completing 9-14 will cause it to feel Normal MoodNormal, and 15-22 will make its mood result Good MoodHappy. Its usual waiting time after a task is around 10 seconds.

Story Edit

TheNakedNestPortrait

The Naked Nest's encyclopedia portrait

  • "When you spot any employee whose face is turning a dark green, please report them to the Sephirah of each department immediately. Please be advised to verify that the cause of the discoloration is not just a simple stomachache. When advised to visit the medical ward, those with a stomachache would agree, but an infected employee would try to act like nothing was wrong. If so, don’t alert the employee that anything is out of the ordinary. When the host becomes agitated, the infection will speed up. If the skin begins to change, then 30% of the brain has already been consumed. Any conversation at this point will be done by the Abnormality, so don’t pay it any mind."
  • "The Abnormality that is residing inside the host’s frontal lobe and the host will not feel any physical sensations. You can try stabbing the employee with something sharp, feigning as a mistake, but this is not recommended. As mentioned before, the host is already part of the Abnormality, around 30%, so conversing will be impossible."
  • "The Naked Serpent” can enter any hole of your body."
  • "This doesn’t mean covering up your orifices will impede it from entering."
  • "But it will help ease your mind if you cover up as much as possible."
  • "The Naked Serpent’s final destination is your frontal lobe."
  • "You will become the serpent’s nest, attacking anything in sight."
  • "Please understand, if you become a nest, we will be forced to shoot you on sight and burn your corpse."

Flavour Text Edit

  • "<Name>'s nest appears to form a wet and sleek sphere. It is not unreasonable to mistake The Naked Nest's brain as a nest"
  • "When The Naked Nest's skin becomes hideously green, it's already too late."

Trivia Edit

  • Its ability is similar to Queen Bee except that possessed employees can infect while attacking and don't need to kill the target. Also possessed employees doesn't count as minions, so they can be killed by Execution bullets.
