MICROFORM: Leprosore infection is marked by a multitude of colorful, cripplingly sensitive boils, the slightest pressure setting off an explosion of vibrant, infectious pus and debilitating agony. As the boils multiply, the afflicted feel increasingly sullen, pessimistic and self conscious, convinced that they are worthless and their situation hopeless.
REPRODUCTION: Rather than split into many independent offspring, a Leprosore reproduces by constructing one large body swollen with many pus-filled "eggs." It may brood its young in its shell for many months, dragging small organisms inside for consumption.
PERSONALITY: the Leprosore is a grumpy, antisocial Fectoid, disliking any significant excitement and sometimes unleashing its infectious phase purely to enjoy the subsequent peace and quiet. It is nonetheless humble and apologetic towards its hosts; it means nothing personal, but sometimes, everyone else is being far too loud.
