They travel through Soma by repeatedly launching grappling hooks at unsuspecting holdfasts to propel themselves
Lords who wield the Lacta Mace. To protect himself, Amoxicillin allied himself with legendary armorer Clavulanate, in order to design a living shield that could effectively block the Lacta Mace. Armed and ready, Amoxicillin returned to battle stronger than ever.

Like his mother, he captures Pestilence agents and prevents them from building the structures they need to spread and thrive— then watches them die slowly. Because of their similar fighting styles,
