Unnatural Fecundity Fortification
Requires Great Mother’s Wame, Blight Internalization Transcendence
The Yozi’s bodies are landscapes, capable of supporting all manner of unnatural life. But why limit it to just the Yozi? An Infernal with this charm renders their very flesh breeding grounds for all manner of strange things. Algae, plant life, parasites of all kinds, and other corrupted or demonic living things can grow from the Infernal’s body as though they were a viable source of nutrition or fertility. This never causes the Infernal any penalty aside from the obvious nature of having all manner of corrupt and infernal plants and organisms sprouting from/crawling along their flesh. Additionally, this relationship is symbiotic, for the most part: the Infernal does not need to eat as long as they are able to receive the photosynthetic radiation of Ligier (or in a pinch, the light of Ignis Divine, though this is uncomfortable for many Infernals, if only due to the implications).
At Essence 4+, even their veins and internal organs are capable of sustaining horrifying life. Any time the Infernal is exposed to a nonmagical disease, they automatically become infected. However, they are completely immune to the effects of the disease and only suffer from it by manner of spreading it to others. While thus infected, the Infernal can still activate Blight Internalization Transcendence without killing their diseases. In fact, the radiation makes them stronger, and as such they are considered magical diseases for all effects not relating to this host as long as that charm is active.
At Essence 6+, this also affects magical diseases, though it has no effect on the Great Contagion (if the character can even be infected at this point). That product of the Void has no place in the Infernal’s internal world of life.

The Yozi strain at the borders of Creation, with no room to spread, but their Princes may freely walk and spread their power in accordance with their masters’ desires. The Infernal may create an area ripe with life, transforming the landscape into a fertile grove home to all the vegetation, disease, and parasitic life that plays host to her body. This area is consecrated to the Infernal and benefits thus from charms in the Verdant Emptiness Endowment/Penitents Like Scattered Grains charm tree. With VEE or As You Wish, those who enter the grove can avoid being infected with all manner of disease and parasite with the Infernal’s good graces. The Infernal may use this area to rest and recover from injury quickly by incorporating herself into the land temporarily and entering a comatose state for half the normal recovery time.
