Is Flood biomass truly rotten or simply gelatinous? I am asking, because Flood hives seem too robust to be composed of rotten organic matter? I believe the coloration of Flood forms is simply aesthetic, among other things. Or maybe the host's skin decays to allow the biomass to expand into a Flood form. Any other perspectives. - BusterGundam (talk) 04:40, January 2, 2019 (UTC)
