While the PoisonVerse does have normal bonds that function similarly to many omegaverses, it also has two additional bond types. Packs with the bonds below cannot bond additional omegas into the pack.
Princess Bonds* [Open]
'A bond of reverence'
An omega dominated bond. A bond that places the omega in a position of high authority within the pack. This bond can only form between scent-matched mates. If rejected, the omega becomes a duchess (see below), and the rejected pack does not get another scent-matched mate. It's a high-risk bond for alphas to offer.
Dark Bonds* [Open]
'A bond of control'
An alpha dominated bond. A dark bond is a bond of ultimate control of an alpha over an omega. It can be claimed by a bite, even without consent. Omegas in a dark bond must follow all commands given to them. Resisting commands leaves them in pain. In the PoisonVerse, it is illegal to dark bond an omega unless they are gold pack or give consent for the bond.
In the PoisonVerse it is illegal to dark bond an omega unless they are gold pack, or unless they give consent for the bond.
Gold Pack Omegas [Closed]
[PoisonVerse exclusive] Outcast omegas.
Gold pack omegas are omegas who choose not to go to the Institute within a year of perfuming. Without the injection the Institute offers, their eyes turn gold, marking them as outcasts and a threat to society's safety. Alpha children birthed by gold packs are Rogues—alphas who are not constrained by laws that keep the population safe. Gold pack omegas are forbidden from having children and are unprotected by many laws designed to keep omegas safe.
Duchesses and Dukes* [Open]
Omegas who have rejected princess bonds (or rejected their own mates).
They are desired, and their scents are particularly alluring. Rich packs like to have duchesses on their arms for the status they bring. They are usually well-off and have their pick of suitors while they remain packless.
Beta companions to packs of alphas who don't have omegas and need alternative forms of balancing.
