The term relapse refers to the loss of sentience, turning Gestalts hostile and aggressive, leading them to even attack Replicants. This phenomenon is caused when a Replicant becomes more and more self-aware, along with a genetic instability within the original Gestalt. Presumably, this effect can occur due to a technological defect during the Gestalt transformation process, used in Project Gestalt. When a Gestalt relapses it also affects its corresponding Replicant in the form of the Black Scrawl.
