The sorix is one of the best documented of the unreleased strains, with notes from a nearly intact Module 2 entry accessible via certain public directories.
As these texts infer, it generated in the wake of the sor, following silently in its shadow and dropping its own scaled-down duplicates as it did so. As a substrain of a suffixless stranger, the sorix did not share its parent strain's ability to replicate human forms. The copies it created were, in fact, generated via the nearby sor, whose abilities evidently exceeded its physical bounds when given apparatus for such projection.
Due to the substrain's small size, the replicas broadcast through it were no larger than dolls. And, following their discovery and incorporation into an early sensitive museum, the question of how to treat these "imposter dolls" became a hotly-contested issue for a number of weeks. Most erred on the side of caution, even lapsing into superstition. Others derived numerical systems by which to handle destruction – breaking the arms of every fourth one, or crushing every fifth beneath their boot in the hopes of more actively drawing good favor in their direction.
These speculations, however, proved fruitless, as the sorix was encountered only once – leading to the pillaging of the sensitive museum once the scarcity of the imposter dummies became evident.
In all other ways save for size and markings, the sorix displayed few differences from its parent strain. While notes allude to a link between the sorix and the presence of a pale bruise beneath the left eye, such details cannot be corroborated.
