Though it never achieved some of the mainstream fascination as other unreleased strains, the kineticontouri did prove notable due to its role as one of the "jammed" strangers whose data was not lost solely due to the flood, but was also damaged by zealous, post-future hijackers in an attempt to break free of the so-called dogmatic dependence upon on an era that did not incur such a cataclysm without reason. Despite the volume of material that has been created about the seizure-induring pirate "death debug" signal sent out in the kineticontouri's name, however, details about the strain itself remain sparse. The few remaining collections of primary documents consist of a smattering of images: the kineticontouri's whirling dance, its child-like and zyclomusical voice, and, if the remaining few sentences can be assumed to be unaltered, an ebullient and drastic flourish in the hours immediately before the flood.
Tragically, its effect is known only through these historical allusions; though allegedly vivid and unique, no concrete data remains.
Of more modern note, the kineticontouri's role as a low-level enemy in a certain well-known online game has also earned it some level of notoriety, with players and enthusiasts referring to the strain as "kineticrud"; a half-insult, half-endearment whose memetic popularity owes itself to, but far exceeds the strain's jammed notability. Such sentiment can be attested to in the keychains and t-shirts sold on the streets near Rey Crud's apartment and grave, which see renewed traffic and flowerfall with each anniversary of the assassination (and, by proxy, the game's release), the kineticontouri's "interest numbers" only growing in turn.
