A Toon in Cog's Clothing - Chapter 8Dilute was a peculiar creature. A being of chemicals, there were no bones or organs to speak of in him. He was just a strange gelatinous-like mass that could mimic the feeling of certain materials. Like the porcelain of his mask, the plastic of his buttons, the silicone like feeling of his hands and upper body. Even his hat and goggles were made of the same goo he was made up of, they merely mimicked the material of what they were shaped as. Oleander found him intriguing.
