 All [[countries]] share a basic foundation of medical knowledge. Each country pursues its own cutting-edge research, then shares the findings with others. Experimental new procedures or medications will often be pioneered in one or two countries before spreading to the rest. All [[countries]] share a basic foundation of medical knowledge.

 +Several years before the start of the comic, [[Sonheim|Sønheim]] had an outbreak of a new brumavirus, which wasn't anticipated in the regular vaccine and caused unusually severe, long-lasting illness. [[https://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​quarantine-with-the-vampire-part-2-7-16/​|In the early months, its spread was contained]] to the region North of the Mountains.

-Some humans grow them. They can appear at any stage of development between early teens and late 60's, but most typically in the early 20's, and develop over the course of about a week with very little warning beforehandOnce grown in, they behave as [[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​sword-dancers-2123/​|fully functional limbs]], although they aren't large enough to fly with. The feathers are almost always white, with rare exceptions that are black or patterned. +Some humans grow them. Cause unknown, but presumably magicalSee [[Wings]].

-[[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​level-up-10-14/​|Signs of impending wing growth]] include unusual protein and mineral cravings, back and shoulder aches, itching, and fatigue. A person should seek treatment if these symptoms persist for more than 52 hours (2 days). During the growth period they'​ll need to eat well, manage the pain (magically and/or chemically),​ and avoid injury to the back, which will be especially tender and slow to heal from any extra damage. Bed rest is recommended. +
- +
-Wings don't start growing in anyone too malnourished to survive the process, although in borderline cases they can leave a person with vitamin deficiencies. As long as the body is getting enough nutrients, the development of wings isn't correlated with any other known factor, including race, sex, diet, magical powers, or environment. +

-In [[countries#​Sønheim]] they'​re seen as a sign of the favor of Queen Szélanya.+
