Cartridges are specialized packages made at Ido Front from the flesh and essence of humans who are the easiest to transport and won't be missed.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

They are used to sustain energy by combating the Curse of the Abyss. For portability, only the brain and vital organs of children are used.[2]

The Curse is deflected away from Bondrewd and onto the child in the cartridge instead. A cocktail of drugs is also used to induce a state of ecstasy and terror in the cartridge to boost the curse-combating efficiency.[3]

When Prushka's Cartridge is used, Bondrewd is able to avoid the loss of humanity from ascending in the 6th layer and instead receives the Blessing of the Abyss.[4]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • According to Nanachi, only the brain, part of the spine and enough guts to live for a few days until the expiration date of the respective Cartridge, and wrapped in skin and flesh after all has been thoroughly scraped off, is used to make them.[5]
