Bah, wall of text. Sorry guys! The next page isn't so wordy.

This is a big part of the setting though. AMBROSIA (And by extension VALHALLA, the project Chaz came from) is inspired in part by the mystical Hourai Elixir, which I first remember being mentioned in the Touhou series of videogames.

In Touhou at least, when one sip of the elixir is taken, the drinker stops aging. When a second sip is taken, the drinker can no longer become ill. When a third sip is taken, the drinker becomes completely incapable of dying in any way, although they still feel pain and can still be "killed" for a short while (Critical injuries will heal in a matter of days, for instance)

So in a way, you could say that AMBROSIA is the genetic modification equivalent of two sips of Hourai elixir, and VALHALLA GELFs are genetically engineered beings who've got the equivalent of the full three sips.

I'm a dork, I know. D:
