A cythnigot.

Cythnigots are small parasitic fungal qlippoth that infest small creatures and reshape their bodies.1


A cythnigot is a 20-inch-long, 10-pound 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.2[citation needed]


Cythnigots are the favourite familiars of the truly mad,1 who infuse an existing familiar of an appropriate size with a cythnigot's spores to gain a new, loyal, and disgusting familiar.2[citation needed]
