Adriana Yue Oncehuman, a postbiont who retained a physical body for many centuries.
An organic lifeform that has attained S1 or higher. May be an ascended former modosophont Biont, or even an ordinary pre-sapient organism that was somehow infected with or modified by a godseed.

The term is generally used to refer to those individuals that have retained a (however modified) carbon-based organic body.
