Central to the mystery of the powers of the GIFTED. The MAGELLAN cells were mysterious, idiopathic non-cancerous neurons that impart to their hosts the power to perform feats considered scientifically impossible. The higher the concentration of cells in an individual, the greater the power. And thus far, it is known that only unaltered humans can become hosts. MAGELLAN cells have bizzare behavior - moving from host to host without physically moving and triggered by deaths, births and sometimes cataclysm. The data surrounding the migration patterns and previous hosts is kept in a distributed online Blockchain repository: The BENEDICTINE CODEX.
Their discovery was in the early 2030’s on old Earth by a Jesuit, Father Benedict. The events of the MAGELLAN CRISIS will be detailed in “SILENT WAR”.
