The power to gain powers by hosting a composite being in one’s body. Variation of Symbiosis.
- Collective Symbiosis
- Compound Symbiosis
- Gestalt Symbiosis
- Hybridized Symbiosis
The user is able to become a host to a composite being that lives in or on their body, granting them enhanced condition and new abilities. The gestalt symbiote has the combined features of its individual parts (albeit, in a new form) and passes those collective powers and characteristics onto the host. Though the combined strength can be advantageous, as with most forms of Symbiosis, it can come with a price.
