An Officer using Absorb gathers all nearby Darwinians, and 'absorbs' them - creating a shield around itself. For each Darwinian the Officer 'absorbs', you'll see a green soul circling it, and it can now take x amount of damage per DG absorbed in this manner. As the Officer takes damage, its DG soul shield will thin out and eventually dissipate proportionate to the amount of damage taken, and the number of DGs absorbed in the first place.

Whats the point though? Doesn't it just waste DGs?

Heh... You obviously haven't played Insurrection...

The DG shield not only prevents the officer from taking damage, but it deals damage to any unit that does "melee" damage -- spiders, virii, &c. Load up an officer with the absorb command, and he can take out a patch of virii, or a sould destroyer. It does not have a lot of use in the main campaign, but has been put to use by a couple of modders.

...Yeah, I left that part out. Kind of an important part, too. I really need to learn to proofread. Especially when I write something, then click 'Post' half an hour later. :oops:

I'll be releasing an update to the tournament mod (otherwise known as "war" on the modlist) - it'll have some new levels.
