Constructive Torpor Catalyst (Essence 7): Nullspace links and internalized vats components enable the Colossus to perform limited self-reconfiguration without the aid of a proper vats facility. While in the torpor provided by his Biofunction Inhibitor, the Alchemical may reconfigure his Charms as if he were spending time in a vats complex. This process takes one week for every day or portion thereof normally required for the Charm installations selected. This submodule also allows the Colossus to build the reconstructive framework required to increase his Essence from seven to eight, making it a common choice for Alchemicals seeking to ascend to Metropolis status.
