Martyr Dead Space, 1B. Martyr is a science fiction novel by B. The story revolves around geophysicist Michael Altman as he investigates the source of a mysterious signal and uncovers a strange alien artifact.
Michael Altman never truly believed in the promise of the Marker and was murdered by Craig Markoff and Stevenswho used his death and several of his broadcasts to establish Unitology as a rising religious movement under their control.
Moreover, despite the tensions between the church and the Earth Government, the Unitology founders were really government researchers and staff from the Chicxulub Crater Facility who became psychotic due to prolonged exposure to the Black Marker carrier wave.
Their psychosis appears to have led them away from logic and science. The founders believed the Necromorphs were a defect. The Church retained some live specimens and did not unleash them. However, they believed the reanimation process was evidence the Marker "created life" and could bring eternal life if used correctly.
The cryptic commercial logo of the Church of Unitology. The Church believed the Marker held the key to the next step in human evolution and that they were entrusted to ensure this evolution comes to pass.
They believed the psychosis caused by the Marker was revelatory and that the horrors of the Marker are merely the result of humans being too weak-minded and materialistic to understand the workings of God described as an alien intelligence behind the Marker and humanity itself.
Unitology theology was written to blind its adherents to any conceivable horror and willfully submit to the power of the Marker even if infection proved to be the only form of eternal life it provided. The Church was founded to prepare humanity for the coming of another Marker that would allow them to bring about the evolution.
The Marker Edit It would be years before a colonist would decipher the meaning of the Black Marker: While these revelations are extraordinarily important to show the truth behind the church, both incidents where this critical information was discovered resulted in the virus escaping and the Necromorphs killing everyone.
Necromorphic organic matter into a single approximately Moon-sized sentient being known as a Brethren Moon, an interstellar apex predator with immense telepathic and telekinetic powers.
These beliefs regarding reincarnation are vindicated in Dead Space 3: Awakened, where it is mentioned by a Brethren Moon that for every race that manages to achieve convergence on their world, a new brother [Moon] joins the cluster.
The Unitologists were right all along about everything in a manner of speaking. Formation of a Brethren Moon Edit The life cycle of a Brethren Moon begins with the seeding of a Marker into a conducive environment for life to grow.
The Marker contains all the genetic information necessary to replicate the entire Moon. It is presumed that upon fulfilling the requirements of an unknown nutrient threshold and within the presence of a compatible organic vector such as the organism known as Isaac Clarkethe Marker begins to germinate via a chain of processes documented by the pioneering Church of Unitology scholars as Rebirth and culminates in Convergence.
Upon completion of Convergence, the physical body of a Brethren Moon is made manifest; although sentience is observed to manifest prior to the actual physical birth. It can be observed that the consummation of a Brethren Moon coincides with the congress of other Moons, though the purpose of this ritual is as of yet unknown, since Dead Space 3 verifies that a Moon is able to become whole by itself without the aid of other Moons, and that the large majority of primed organic matter must logically be consumed by the newly formed Moon itself to achieve its massive size.
It is unknown if Brethren Moons are able to reproduce by any other means. Faith in Convergence Edit Unitologists have used the Necromorphs as validation of their beliefs. The true founders of Unitology were fully aware of the Necromorphs, and believed they were proof of the power of the Marker to bring eternal life.
Although they believed Necromorphs were divine instruments, the founders also originally theorized they were defective, produced by the "broken" Black Marker; their founding theory was that either another Marker would be found or a new one would be created and fulfill the promise of Convergence.
The Church founders possessed live Necromorph specimens one was used to kill Altman but did not release them. Their original intent was indeed to use Markers for eternal life, rather than infection.
Unitologists such as Challus Mercer take refuge in the Necromorph infection as the proof their religion was right. The Church now also believes this, as evidenced in the commitment of Daina Le Guin that the infection is glorious and must be spread.
This does not mean to say that they know of all the horror that will be unleashed, but that they are prepared to accept it because it comes from the Marker.
Role in the Storyline Edit The role of Unitologists in Dead Space is largely antagonistic, often serving as a counterweight to the repressive power of EarthGov. As unbelievable fanatics who want to push humanity into mass suicide, members of their fold have consistently made any given situation worse for groups and individual who oppose them: Challus Mercer created the Hunter in his desire to further the infection.
He also intended to take frozen Necromorphs from the USG Ishimura to release them on Earth in order to end mankind believing this would bring about the Unitologist paradise. It is not known if he was in a high enough rank to know the full detail of the Unitologist purpose to spread the infection, or if the psychosis simply made him believe the Necromorphs were divine in the same way it convinced the Unitology founders.
There is also evidence that Daina was also briefed thoroughly by the Church and mentioned her duty to spread the infection. A select group within Unitology, however, sometimes displays less extremist and hard-lined behavior, more often exhibiting the critical thinking skills unwelcome within the religion.Unitology Alphabet Translator - Dead Space 2 wiki | nationwidesecretarial.com Visit.
