The Broodlings of Eihort are a race of gestalt beings each of which consists of millions of Eihort's white spidery brood. Each of the broodlings appears like a deathly pale human, one without a single strand of hair. With a little disguise Broodlinsgs can go amongst men undetected, having the ability to speak. Any damage inflicted on their body results in bits falling as globby chunks of the spidery brood. Inflict enough damage and it melts into millions of white spiders wriggling and creeping away.
