Designed to perpetuate brain-flukes at high efficiency, this omnivorous wormbrain feeds on any available organic matter while constantly replicating itself in a repetitive chain of clone bodies, each packed with tens of thousands of worm larvae. Though short lived, a detached clone moves quickly and can burst in a splash of infected fluids and tissues.
I worry these guys might be getting repetitive in function, but whereas Pestare generates hypnotic, roving explosive eyes, Troglottid generates a steadier chain of smaller, weaker worm-bombs without the added hypnotism/psychic sensory field. Different niches! I swear!
