The power to use the abilities of parasites. Variation of Symbiote Physiology.

Also Called

  • Parasite Mimicry
  • Parasitic Nature/Mimicry/Physiology
  • Parasitism
  • Phlebotomized Biology


The user either is or can mimic/transform into parasites - while strictly speaking a parasite tries to keep a host alive and indeed depends on them to exist some variants (known as parasitoids) actively kill their host: in fiction there is not often a distinction made between parasite or parasitoid and thus fictional parasites tend towards being more deadly by default.





  • May become unable to gain sustenance without a host.
  • May not be able to survive for long without a host.
