Challenge #01760-D299: Walking Wounded

“‘‘Tis but a flesh wound!”

“It’s really... not...” -- TheDragonsFlame

This human had been through a great amount of trouble to get there. They had multiples of disturbing injuries. Bruises. Cuts. Scrapes, even some breaks in their seemingly unbreakable bones. The last of these, the human had splinted with available material. The twin orifii in the middle of their face was leaking blood. The evident scabbing indicated that this had been going on for some time.

And, most disturbing to the attending Thrak'ik'su, they had been pierced through the thorax. That wound, too, had been bandaged, and the human could still sit up as the Mediks swarmed.

"I'm fine. I'm fine. Move your abdomens over to Delvin City. We really need your help over there. This lot's minor." The human tried to struggle, but not enough to harm the Thrak'ik'su Mediks. "This is just a flesh wound."
