CONCEPT BY AISLING PARAVILI
A mutation of the Streptile. It retains the characteristics of its earliest developmental stages well into adulthood including vestigial jaws, reduced limbs and prominent external gills. Most significant is its simpler internal anatomy, with much more of its total mass devoted to the production of more concentrated antiseptic slime with a more straightforward secretion system. While this physiology benefits smaller, weaker Streptile hatchlings, the mature Larvomorph is consequently incapable of limiting or diluting its output and limited to expelling its entire payload at once. The resulting explosion of pure antimicrobial toxin is immediately detrimental to most living things, and Larvomorphs attracted to bacterially infected subjects do significantly more harm than the typical Streptile.
ANTIBIOBOMB: the monster can unleash a large, highly concentrated eruption of harsh antiseptic enzymes that sterilize other creatures to the point of sickness.
