C2 Organs

Creatures 2 diagram showing the different functions of the organs.

Organs are an innovation of C2. They contain different gene functions, and the health of the organ determines how well those genes and bodily functions occur. The natural aging process and disease damages organs, but they can be repaired somewhat by medicines. According to the Genetics Kit, in a Generation 1 Norn there are 20 organs.

CNS - Drive Lobe Support

This connects the drive lobe with the rest of the creature's body. Contains several receptors, emitters, and reactions.

CNS - Concept Lobe Support

This connects the concept lobe with the rest of the creature's body.

CNS - Decision Lobe Support

This connects the decision lobe with the rest of the creature's body.

Time's Arrow

Controls aging.

Environmental Interface

Senses the external environment, such as air quality, light availability, etc. Also senses the species, gender, and kinship of nearby creatures.

Muscle

This regulates energy consumption of muscles during exercise.

Heart

Controls oxidation - glucose and oxygen become heat and dissolved carbon dioxide. ADP becomes ATP. Injured by cyanide.

Lung

There are two separate lung organs. They control breathing.

Liver

When a creature is in peril, the liver converts glycogen into glucose. The liver also detoxifies a creature from alcohol, ammonia, lactate, and cholesterol.

Pancreas Beta Cells (Insulin Activity)

Converts excess glucose into adipose tissue or glycogen.

Pancreas Alpha Cells (Glucagon Activity)

When glucose is too low, converts adipose tissue and glycogen to glucose.

Tummy

Starch, Fat and Protein from food is broken down into glucose, fatty acids, and amino acids.

Kidney

An excretory organ, water and metabolic products are released here, including urea and in some genomes, bile acid.

Bones

Refers to the bone marrow and controls immune function/healing. Often killed by heavy metals.

Spleen

Creates antibodies to fight against antigens.

Skin

Cools the creature by sweating.

Gonad

Contains most of the reproductive genes and produces sex hormones.

Uterus

Present in females. A female needs a uterus to become pregnant and lay an egg. In the original Creatures 2 genome, there was an error where a gene intended for the heart, where excess fat would hurt that organ, instead affected the uterus, causing widespread female infertility. source
