Discovery NotesCollected @ night time across from an old garden, below a tree and above where many of my childhood pets are buried. About 39 degrees F. Light brown, dry soil with a small amount of plant matter.
Naming NotesIt was named for Vash: the Humanoid Typhoon from the series Trigun. This was due to the clear round plaques my phage was able to produce, similar to how he turned an entire town into a round crater as well as blasting a large crater into the moon. He tends to get into trouble often, but with little effort, everything ends up working out pretty well for him. This reminds me of how little effort I seemed to have to put into my phage in order to get it to work out so well.
