Barely recognizable as a human descendant, this wormbrain's degenerate host body consists of little more than a digestive sac and a pair of gas bladders, allowing the colony buoyancy even in air, though they may also drift jellyfish-like in stagnant water or sewage. Its worms will spring forth to drain fluids from any creature within reach, leaving behind thousands of eggs in the process. If attacked directly, the host body may violently expel its intestinal gases or even explode, scattering worms in all directions. Proglapse host bodies reproduce by budding.
