OriginEdit

When not administrating sermons to parishioners, Johann Dzierzon fiddled with beekeeping. To make removing honey, Dzierzon modified existing beehive models to create a version with individual frames that could be removed without damaging the colony; his design is now standard.

Continual observation also led Dzierzon to discover the worker drones were actually born from unfertilized eggs, and not from sexual reproduction. Later called parthenogenesis, this process allows species to forego males for breeding, essentially creating partial and whole clones from the mother alone.

Dzierzon was widely praised for his work until he questioned the Papacy’s ability to make errors. The Roman Catholic Church forced him into retirement from priesthood and excommunicated him for entering politics. Both parties reconciled a year before Dzierzon’s death.

EffectsEdit

Vibrating the partition will propagate a swarm of bees controlled by the user. They will move in any direction desired, but will avoid water at all costs. Furthermore, the swarm can congeal together and smother itself around any target. After a minute of buzzing around the surface, they will leave, regroup elsewhere and duplicate the object down to the tiniest detail. Made entirely of beeswax, it will copy most physical properties such as texture and weight to a very high standard.

Every duplicated object causes more drones to be released from the frame and join the colony. Any damage of changes to the original object will immediately reflect upon the replicas. Proximity to religious items and events will disrupt the swarm’s coordination, causing the bees to disperse too much for reformation.
