The Afflicted, are the beings that The Abstracts corrupted into monsters, either mistakenly or purposefully. These creatures were once human beings, and quite often retain a good deal of their human intellect and emotions even if they exhibit monstrous behavior. The altercations are different for each person and cause the person to become a humanoid abomination, sometimes causing their humanity to be removed in the process. As such, they are much stronger than a human being is, and much more dangerous.
The Affllicted have varying degrees of power, and may or may not human servents, while others prefer to work on their own. Some of them have escaped from their Absrtact's hold (if once servents to it), or are outright hiding from them. Their basic interaction with the Abstracts and other Affllicted depend on the Afflicted - some coexist with some (or all) of these parties rather neutrally, while others are bitter enemies. Similarly, some Afflicted view humans as prey, some view them as relatively neutral, and still others view them as potential servants.
Unless stated so in the forum's open source characters thread, the Afflicted on this list are not open source.
