This Discord is very new: the first reported case of
it was in 1938 AD, as part of one of the most drastic
incidents of Word-shift in the history of the War
(Eugenics, a Trivial Word formerly held by a Mercurian
of Stone as a way to encourage the voluntary
improvement of the species by selective breeding, a la
Robert Heinlein's Howard Families. The sudden shift
of said Word to a euphemism for genocide was
unexpected, and very painful: you can still see the
crack in the Council floor where the poor bastard
pounded his head while begging them to make the agony
_stop_). It's cropped up from time to time since.
Those with the Discord find their physical form to be very plastic: too plastic, in fact. Facial features in particular will shift and adapt to fit whatever long-term mood the unfortunate individual is experiencing - and, seeing as the condition is painful, this usually means that the person's expression will end up being unpleasant.
At level/1, this shift can't really be seen with the naked eye, unless one wishes to watch unblinking for an hour or so: at level/6, anyone afflicted by this had better wear a mask and very loose clothing. Total mass remains unchanged. Also, at level/3 and above anyone afflicted with this Discord will take 1 hit of damage per day.
Reaction modifier: -2 per level, for levels 1 through 3; -3 for each level above 3.
