Spawn of the Scorned One

The old gods, the Scorned One and his children, were said to be masters of many blasphemous sciences but one of the most notable of them was the ability to create life. Not any kind of life that modern Tairos would recognize though. Their alien minds delighted in crafting horrific and impossible living organisms to serve their every whim. These spawn were cursed to an immortality of endless servitude and suffering that would only end when their gods needed to recycle their flesh to bring to light a new abomination.   When Nuriel and his angelic host broke the connection the Scorned One had to Tairos many of his creations were left behind untended to. Some were killed off by mortal champions in the eons to come. Others became beasts of legend or slipped into an eternal slumber in the dark places beneath the land or sea. Some bred with each other creating new and terrible life forms.   One of the most insidious forms of life left behind by the Scorned One was the Hybrid Virus, a lurking sickness that festered inside many of creations. This virus has the ability to convert a living host into a terrible cross between mortal and nightmare spawn. It erodes the mind of its host as well, slowly connect their thoughts into the hive network of the spawn themselves. The virus is often contained in venom-like sacs in the mouth or infects the sex organs of the host.
