    Name: Nameless Pink Slime Honey Drop
    Age: 1, Mental maturity has reached to 20
    Birthday: Unknown
    Gender: Genderless, preference changes with the people she's around, but usually female.
    Species: Slime
    Category: Student
    Grade: Remedial
    Appearance Description: Just a pink, amorphous blob that freely changes shape. Features are however mostly humanoid as that is the form it sees a lot of, though the lower half transitions into a puddle most of the time, but is fully capable of using two legs to move around, but keeping its balance is a problem. Size, viscosity and transparency also vary on how much matter it has, and how much water is in its body.

    Personality Description: The slime is a creature of instinct at the start. It goes where it can find warmth and food and is enticed by sweet treats, most notably honey. When its small, it tends to hide itself away. It changes its taste and aroma to draw out prey, capturing them, and then consuming them. However it only does that if it needs to as fighting anything that's alive takes a toll on its energy.

    When it feels that food is plentiful, it will often stockpile its own slime in a safe place in case it needs it when the food sources dwindle. It doesn't have much of a personality at the moment.

    Honey Drop, over the course of almost a year, learned to be more adventurous and can understand people, being able to find her own way of talking by mimicking how people did it. She mostly remains cautious, but is often unaware of anything that she can't see or hear, and as she doesn't have anything like a nervous system, she is often not aware of anything that isn't inside her or touching her, but even then, she may remain oblivious.

    Species Abilities: This amorphous slime shows properties of an amoeba in that it is selective in what it allows into its body. The mass would soon break down its food into nutrients and add to its mass with the use of strong acids. Liquids are absorbed much faster in comparison to solid food. The rate at which the food is broken down varies on how strong of an acid the slime creates, however the stronger the acid, the more unusable byproducts it creates, thus leading to mass that provides no purpose, but is great for emergencies and as a form of subduing attackers and struggling prey as these acids can be shot out from the slime. But since this acid takes away from the mass, constant use may lead to great shrinkage. This production of acid is consciously controlled by the slime however, which may lead to situations where its food is still floating around its body due to it forgetting about it.

    It is also capable of changing how its body tastes, and can concentrate nutrients into parts of itself before separating them from its body, but it can rearrange its molecules to mimic many chemical solutions, given it has 'tasted' them before. This means it can mimic the taste of roasted turkey or ice cream, the effects of alcohol and drugs but they would all take the same form of a pink blob. Though this may change if the slime figures out how to give its droppings different textures.

    It is also capable of burning its mass to generate heat, up to 50 degrees centigrade to keep itself from freezing. It can conserve its mass if it has an external source of heat however. It doesn't need much, just enough not to freeze. Too much heat however and it starts to evaporate, filling the air with whatever chemical and scent its body is mimicking.

    Aside from being able to freely change its shape, it can change how rigid its surface is, which allows it to take a more solid form. Usually this is done to better interact with the surroundings and as a form of defense. It may also climb up walls and ceilings, provided there is enough friction to allow itself to do so. On smooth surfaces, the slime may use suction cups to move around. It may also compress itself to make itself smaller and denser, but can only shrink to half its size, though the weight remains the same and it becomes slower.

    In terms of senses, it can form eyes to see, ears to hear, a nose to smell with but it generally tastes and feels with its whole body, but the sensation of feeling is dull and not as acute as with other creatures.

    It's also found that it learns much faster the more mass it has, up to the average mass of a fully-grown adult male. The rate at which it understands things scales with its size and the equivalent average age of a human. When its mass shrinks, either through its natural processes or because it was attacked, it retains all its memories as well as everything it learned.

    However, it cannot divide itself and have a second sentient copy. The separated mass will simply serve as a nutrient storage, or when it discovers bioluminescence, as a source of light. This means that if the slime was broken up into many different pieces, its sentient piece will have to manually collect its lost mass by reassimilating it. Its consciousness travels quickly, given that its point of origin and destination are connected by slime, it can be in either point in an instant.

    Known Weaknesses:

    Strong electrical currents immobilizes the slime. As this usually generates heat, a small amount of its mass is lost through evaporation. If it is sustained, it could dry up.

    Strong, constant vibrations through the air, ground, and applied directly to its body also hinder its ability to take and retain its shape, as well as hindering movement on the ground, walls and ceilings.

    While it can't be killed through physical means, it can be scattered and its sentient piece captured.

    When exposed to heat that's enough to boil water (or when dropped into boiling water), the affected parts crystallizes and becomes unusable, but also heat-resistant. In instances where the entire surface of the slime is subjected to extreme heat, the outer surface is turned into a crystallized shell to protect the remaining slime trapped inside. It works similarly when the temperature extremes are on the opposite end of the scale, although the biggest difference is that the frozen shell can immediately be used again when it thaws out, whereas the crystallized slime through heat will need to be consumed and broken down. And yes, the crystallized slime is edible.

    It uses more energy the bigger it is, leading to faster loss of mass. If its mass surpasses the mass of a fully-grown elephant, its ability to shapeshift is hindered, making it harder to do finer appendages like fingers.

    Biography:
    The origin of this pink slime is unknown, however the first sighting of this particular one was in the Strip, picking up scraps of food on the street. It is known to favor sweets and has been successfully lured out with treats. Brave individuals also report it to have a honey-like taste, and a sweet aroma. It is unknown if more of this pink slime is out there, but due to the rarity of the sightings, it is difficult to determine.

    The slime had been named 'Honey Drop' by Kendi, a naga who brought the slime home and made into a pet. As the slime was fed and sneaked off to find some food for itself while Kendi was gone, it began to grow and developed mentally, soon being able to understand spoken words, and eventually managing to figure out how to make sound which lead to it learning how to speak. After almost a year, Honey Drop could hold a conversation, albeit broken, she can communicate and possess the capacity to think beyond her instincts and begin to understand concepts in society.

    Name: Honey Drop Apparent Age: ?? Gender: ??? Species: Pink Slime Height: 2 feet, usually (Varies) Build: ... jelly (Varies) Notable Features: It's a pink slime. For now its just about small enough to fit snugly inside a large coffee mug. It's translucent, it's opacity changing by how dense it is and how much water its holding in. It has rudimentary eyes and mouth, however these might not be seen all too clearly. Physical Quirks: It's a slime. It feels like jelly. Its bouncy. It grows bigger the more it eats. Its body is reminiscent of amoebas. Normally tastes like honey and gives off a sweet aroma. Power Summary: Can change its shape freely, and its density as well, but retains the mass it has. It produces acids that can be used defensively and offensively, and also to break down food. It is selective of what it lets into its body, so it won't immediately swell up if it was trapped in a gallon of water, or not at all. Can focus nutrients into certain parts of itself and can change its slime's taste, as well as replicate chemicals and solutions (i.e. candy, drugs, or alcohol) it has "tasted". Can learn faster the bigger it is, and doesn't lose knowledge gained when it shrinks. Consciousness can be transferred immediately to any adjacent smile of its making. Crystallizes when enough heat to boil water is applied, but this makes it heat-resistant, which means it's somewhat safe when its thrown into a boiling cauldron. Reputation: People will soon know that this slime, while sentient, relies mostly on instinct, and will not hesitate to steal unguarded sweets. It also likes warmth a lot. It will climb on people. Has been taken away by the police in a plastic bag after it was found stealing food from the vending machine. Misc Information:
