physical appearance
The svurodroni /ˈsvʊəroʊdroʊni/ is a white, crescent-shaped stranger which lacks all tangible substance, and appears, instead, to be constructed of pure light. Its hologram-like body casts a dim, steady glow, and cannot be moved or interacted with, as all matter passes through its body without affecting or distorting its appearance.

Its voice is silent.

environment and generation
The svurodroni appears above a small percentage of sensitives who remain in a prone position for more than one week. The likelihood of a svurodroni's appearance becomes incrementally greater the longer an individual remains in this state.Ҿ It is most common in hospitals and nursing homes, but also appears above bedridden or otherwise ailing individuals.

Ҿ It floated around his head, and made a halo of itself.
When the svurodroni appears, it fades into view over a period of hours.
It appears over empty beds 4.6% of the time. A victimless svurodroni flickers in and out of view within an instant, like the brief arc of electricity in a lightbulb's death, and leaves behind a faint but lingering burning smell.

behaviour
The svurodroni's temperament is patient above all else, and it does not move or interact with the world in any way. Despite this lack of action, however, its presence appears to dispel other strangers; even the most aggressive of predatory strangers will refrain from attacking a sensitive accompanied by a svurodroni.
interactions with sensitives
Proximity to the svurodroni induces deep calm and contentment, as well as side-effects resembling those of a strong analgesic, such as morphine, at intermittent times. When touched, overlap with the svurodroni's shape causes a "pins and needles" sensation accompanied by a crisp sizzling sound, although no bodily damage occurs.
there's no time to doubt
they won't let you into the hospital?
is there something they don't want you to see? find out if they're putting something into the medicines, look for the secret poison and you might be entitled to a dream vacation from this one secret legal loophole they'd rather lose their licen$es than tell it, but we're here now...!

aging and death
The svurodroni fades out at the end of its life, or once the person beneath it dies. Some svurodroni fade out over the course of several months, while others disappear in the blink of an eye.
Following the death of a svurodroni, all sensitives within a half-mile radius experience a sudden sense of peace, followed by a profound loneliness.
