A nonliving, nonsentient structure that grew from a meteorite, this inanimate "monster" forever obeys the whims of the first sentient being it comes into contact with. Though immobile, its tentacular "arms" can extend hundreds of feet, draining heat, electricity or radiation from anything they come into contact with. It can store a tremendous amount of power in its armored core, and "vents" excess energy as highly destructive beams.
Anything striking the surface of the Ziafel produces a distinct echo, regardless of surroundings. Its tubes twitch in the presence of an energy source.
Third and final of the killer meteors. This one was inspired by the Ultraman monster "Bullton," but came out looking like a simultaneous ripoff of an R-Type boss. Ah well...it's not quite severe enough to worry me.
