Mindwyrm Familiar

Mindwyrm Familiars are a variant of Genestealer Familiar.[1]

Sired by a Patriarch for a very specific task, the Mindwyrm Familiar is used to create and then direct a Abominant bioform. The Familiar implants the selected Aberrant with a portion of the Patriarch's own biomass with an organ similar to a Genestealer's Kiss. Once the injected mutagen is implanted into the chosen Aberrant, the creature is reshaped over a long and agonizing process. Its already robust frame grows even larger and more powerful, while its bones break and are reformed into a more powerful skeletal structure. It gains new potent regenerative abilities that help it survive this process as well as endure in battle. The Mindwyrm Familiar does not depart after this strange gift is given, but continues to exert the will of the Patriarch on the Abominant.[1]
