Choosing a creature, that you can see within range, you summon a ravenous otherworldly parasite into their body. The target must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or be infected with this subdermal leech. The creature can survive inside the body for 24 hours and outside a body for 1 minute. As long as the parasite is alive inside the target’s body, it will leech any healing energy the target has naturally or any it receives. The target will gain no healing benefit from rests, potions, magic, or otherwise. Additionally, the parasite will leech 1 hit points from the target for every round it is in the body.

The parasite creates a visible bump where it is located. If a 2-inch incision is made where the parasite is located, it can be removed. The parasite will adapt to be compatible with any life form, even undead and constructs. It has an AC of 10, 1 Hit Point, and can deal 1 piercing damage with a bite attack (which it makes on your turn and automatically hits if inside the body).
