Dr. Jackal then smirked at Cronk and replied, "You are to kind Mr. Cronk. Do you have any plans after you eat?"

Cronk grinned, then lifted the bottle. He was aware as well of having to go to headquarters as security for the team. But, food and drink would come before then.

“Before headquarters,” Cronk replied sheepishly. Then, Cronk bounded toward the kitchen.

Dr. Jackal bid the orc farewell as he waved to him. Then he went back inside and checked his refrigerator to see the orc's blood. He was impressed that he was able to secure it and have it properly labeled. Then he looked at the time and began to prep his lab for studying the orc's blood for details. Dr. Jackal knew that blood is a specialized body fluid. It has four main components: plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets, platelets, and contains fats, sugar, carbohydrates, proteins, hormones, and salts. Blood also has many different functions, including transporting oxygen and nutrients to the lungs and tissues. There are four main types of blood. However, they are distinguished into 8 types of blood or blood groups based on the presence and absence of antibodies and inherited antigenic substances from the parents such as group A, group B, group O, and group AB. All four of these groups have either a positive or negative attribute which makes it hard to mix. This often led to failure in childbirth since combining negative and positive bloods caused complications. Also unknown to many outside the field of science, there are five different colors of blood depending upon the animal’s presence and absence of pigment. The blood colors are red, blue, green, yellow and orange. Dr. Jackal took his time preparing his slides with a drop of orc blood on it and a stabilizing agent to allow him time to study its properties.

After documenting his findings he concluded that the orc blood was lacking a certain protein found in humans for brain development, which explained a lot about orc development compared to humans. Orcs were seen as a lesser intelligent species by others due to their slow thinking and learning compared to other races. Ironically the orcs also had an abundance of proteins that were needed to muscle development compared to other races. This may have been a way for nature to balance out the lack of intelligence in orcs. So he documented his findings and planned to continue his work with more blood samples of other races once they came in from the Order. He then began to make a series of graphs to show his blood information compared to other races in different colors to make it easier for the team to see the differences and commonalities. It was a bit eye opening to see why Dr. Lemaire's results were off the charts since the serum affected the certain protein based on quantity and quality.
