Male Stories
Key to symbols:
living statue/mannequinLiving Statue/ Living Mannequin: The body retains its normal texture and (usually) colour and may be malleable, even though the person is incapable of moving voluntarily.
solid statueSolid Statue: The body takes on the appearance of stone, metal, ice or wood, becoming totally rigid and immovable. There is usually no discernible breathing or other sign of life, and the person can be mistaken for a statue even though he may be fully conscious.
roboticRobotic: The body is entirely under someone else’s control. Its owner is incapable of moving of his own free will. (Infrequent.)
