Description (Healing Blade Lore)
Imipenem and Cilastatin are a commanding Pestilence-fighting duo. Imipenem is a powerful sorcerer that can kill a variety of Pestilence agents, while Cilastatin is an efficient body guard that protects Imipenem while he works his magic. Imipenem thwarts the Lords’ abilities to multiply their armies by preventing them from growing new skin. Without his guardian Cilastatin, however, the filtration system of Soma would quickly seize Imipenem’s powers and inhibit his spells. To be effective, Imipenem and Cilastatin are always released as a pair, and together, they can defend Soma against attacks in Respiro Forest, the boundary wall, the Southern Dam, and other vulnerable Soman cities and towns.
When called to action, Imipenem and Cilastatin appear in Soma’s main waterways, or in the countryside where they follow the streams and rivers to the site of attack. The duo is related to the great Penicillin clan, but they are less likely to damage the regions of the land that are sensitive to Penicillin’s attacks. On rare occasions, however, Imipenem’s spells and Cilastatin’s protective measures can result in potentially destructive earthquakes. They can also cause disturbances to the aqueduct’s normal ebb and flow, irritation to the inhabitants surrounding the land where they first appear, and unrest in Respiro Forest. As a result, the Apothecary duo are typically called in only as a last ditch effort when Soma’s Noble Sentry and other Apothecary efforts have failed to rid the land of an attacking Pestilence army.
