Mortasheen - Vaccuthax by scythemantis Mortasheen - Vaccuthax by scythemantis
"Vampire Hunter"

CLASS: VAMPIRIC?

Though it displays all the usual properties of a vampire, the Vaccuthax is actually a silicon-based organism lacking DNA or any recognizable equivalent. Its bite does not merely drain blood, but robs living things of some unknown property until they are little more than crumbling ash, one of the few processes that can truly annihilate its preferred prey - other vampires.

The Vaccuthax does not replicate via a mutagenic virus, but must implant an embryo into a vampiric host. The parasite reaches maturity in under seven days, ultimately burning its way out in a burst of heated plasma.

Also, on Mortasheen I thought you said it had quad-helix DNA. Did you change that or do I have the wrong monster?

Is it quite possible that ts saliva contains he unformed embryo, which causes the burning, and once the vampire is reduced to ash, then the embryo would form?

I definitely want this guy on my team.

He kind of reminds me of metroids, both are energy sucking parasites from outer space with highly unusual DNA (metroids can't be cloned normally and are resistant to all diseases and most energy weapons)

Being the video game fanatic I am, the description instantly reminded me of metroid.
