CLASS: ZOMBIE SPAWN
These dreadful beings seem to result from a single gene deficiency in the development of an Oovule, having risen from the Corpse Sea on six occasions before the first and only natural Oovule manifestation. Nearly devoid of conscious thought and possessing very little living tissue at any given time, an Abnortis drifts aimlessly in the atmosphere, showering all in its path with its oddly folded prions and viral genes.
All life forms contaminated by an Abnortis exhibit the same rapid cycle of decomposition, regeneration and extreme resilience associated with the "undead," though only specimens of Homo Sapiens complete transformation into viable zombies; without artificial restoration, other biotypes will eventually wear down and collapse into unremarkable, inert heaps of dessicated carrion.
Sapient zombies report hearing "whispers and murmuring" in the presence of an Abnortis, a phenomenon they find deeply disturbing yet "strangely familiar" in ways they are at a loss to explain.
I wanted this to be the most unpleasant looking Zombie Spawn yet, if not one of the most misshapen monsters I've ever done.
Dungeons and Dragons already has a malformed, floating, gigantic undead fetus - the Atropal Scion - or rather, it used to, before more recent editions watered it down into a mature-looking humanoid. I didn't really intend to rip off the idea, but I did my best to make it a quite different design and concept...besides the giant, flying, broken undead fetus part.
I looked at a whole lot of actual "parasitic twins" and teratomas to draw this guy! CLASS: ZOMBIE SPAWN
