- Abnormality Log
Yang (O-07-103) is a WAW Tool Abnormality taking the form of a white pendant, the half part of a sphere with a small black dot on its more spherical part.
Its counterpart is Yin, its other dark half of the complete pendant.
Yang's main ability is that the employee wearing the tool will receive constant healing of their SP and their White Defense will change to 0.1 (Resistant). This effect will not occur if Yin is not in the facility already. If Yin was previously picked, Yang will be the only abnormality you are able to select the next day.
When Yang is equipped for 30 or more seconds, Yin's Qliphoth Counter will drop by 1. Unlike other tools, when Yin breaches, Yang will transform in its counterpart and breach along it, removing itself from the equipped employee.
When breaching, Yang will take the form of a white fish-like creature with a single light blue eye. It possesses 800 HP and moves slowly across the facility. When an employee passes by, it will let out a small short-ranged wave around itself that heals a portion of HP and SP of the employees in the area. When Yang takes damage from an attack, it will deal the same amount of damage back to the attacker in form of White Damage. Its defenses are Normal (1.0) against all the damage types. The Abnormality will try to reach for its other half, Yin, trying to touch it. Yang is easy to suppress but will turn into its pendant form for a while after its HP is depleted, unable to be attacked, and will transform back into its fish form, back with full HP, and will continue to do so until Yin is suppressed as well.
Upon meeting with Yin, they will unite and form the Yin Yang symbol. Soon after, a gigantic Eastern dragon-like creature will appear from the top of the facility, moving across it at fast speed, with its direction indicated by the Yin-Yang symbol. It will reverse the percentage of all the entities' HP (and SP as well if the entity is an employee) on its way, in form of Black Damage, and will reverse the Qliphoth Counter of all the Abnormalities in its way too. Soon after, both Abnormalities will return to their containment units. If an Agent is wearing Yang and enters the containment unit of Yin, this effect will occur immediately and will also kill the wearer.
It is important to note that the combined ability of Yin and Yang will not work on the following Abnormalities once breached:
Yang's basic information takes 30 seconds of using to unlock, the information gained is:
- Name of the Abnormality
- Subject classification
- Risk Level ( WAW)
- Type of Abnormality (Mounting Type)
The origin of Yang started with their story, along with its counterpart, Yin, speaking of how their effects only work because they were made to be like that, that their creator made them together and that both entities question their existence without having their other half. Called sometimes the 'Pendant of Good' by employees, the two fragments were intended to be together. They were initially together in their past and the story tells of how the 2 carps or fragments meet, finally uniting.
How the pendant fragments arrived into the facility are unknown.
Log and Method
"Half of a pair that is missing each other."
"Yang’s wearer gains resistance to WHITE damage. However, when O-05-102 could not be found in the facility, no benefits were transferred."
"It reduces the mental damage the wearer has to bear. Because of this, it is called “The Angel’s Pendant.” "
"Yang periodically healed its wearer’s SP."
"Those who came near it yearned for its energy; they said it cleared their minds, and gave warmth to their hearts. However, they feared the black pendant.
“I sure wish every Abnormality was helpful like this one.” they would say, sighing.
Yet, it didn’t understand. It never intended to help others, that was simply what it did."
"<Caution> Ensure that you do not place Yang’s wearer in the Containment Unit of O-05-102."
"However, the world is more than simply warmth and light. The sky exists, for so does the land; darkness exists, for so does light; life exists for so does death; hope exists for so does despair."
"<Caution> Please note that when O-05-102 escapes, Yang will also escape. (We have confirmed that the same problem will occur even when an employee is wearing it.)"
"The black carp swims towards harmony. The white carp swims towards chaos. What will happen when the two fish meet?"
- Yang is based from one of the halves of the 'Yin and Yang' from the Chinese philosophy, of how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
- Yang and Yin are abnormalities contributed by the Chinese Translation Team of the game, as well the second Abnormalities to have counterparts, the first ones being Little Red and Big Bad Wolf.
- Unlike other tools, Yang is the first tool Abnormality to possess other and only type in its subject number (07). This might be a 'Conditional Tool' or 'Breaching Tool', due to also being the first tool that is forced to get after getting Yin and able to breach along the mentioned Abnormality.
