Cythnigots are a race of small parasitic fungal qlippoth that infest small creatures and reshape their bodies.[1]


The cythnigot is a 20-inch-long, 10-pound-heavy fibrous stalk that grows out of its host and ends in a surprisingly strong jaw. It transforms the host corpse in hideous ways, adding appendages or rearranging features. Without a host, a cythnigot looks like a foul-smelling fist-sized puffball.[1][2]


Cythnigots are the favourite familiars of the truly mad, who can infuse their existing familiar (of an appropriate size) with a cythnigot's spores to gain a new, loyal, disgusting familiar.[1]
