In Response To: Re: What ARE Simulacrums? (Alric)

: I recall the cyborg copy explanation from both Marathon 1 and 2. However,
: there was a throwaway line by Durandal back in the M1 manual and in M1
: proper (I believe) that mentions Pfhor "neural parasites" as
: well as the M1 strategy guide mentioning that the "assimilated
: BoBs" were unfortunate humans who had been infested with a Pfhor
: parasite turning them into infiltrators/living explosives. Seems like this
: explanation was retconned by M2 though, in addition with the change of
: term from "assimilated human" to "simulacrum."

"neural parasites"? News to me.
Assimilated Bobs aren't mentioned in the M1 manual.
Bungie never used the term "assimilated human" in M1. They used the term "simulacrum". See the Simulacrums section on the Story page.
