Skinwalker: My biggest issue with this morph was getting used to swallowing things whole, without chewing them.
Cymascopist: Look for the price tag on these morphs to shoot up soon. Somatek has seen steadily declining proﬁts on it since roll-out, and there’s just not a large enough population of uplifted belugas to make it worth their while to develop new iterations.
Pivo: There’s a group of neo-beluga uplifts looking to buy out Somatek’s genetic IP just to open source it all.
