Creature Name: Leviathan Infant
Leviathans are the children of Phaaze. They are bioforms that begin life deep within the planet, inside the base of a serpentine organ that serves as a womb. The Leviathan will remain here, feeding on an endless supply of Phazon until it has developed its Phazon core.
The developed core marks the Leviathans transition into adolescence and its departure from the womb. The serpentine organ moves the adolescent from deep inside Phaaze and releases it closer to the planets surface. Here the bioform will continue to grow and mature beneath its older siblings. As time passes the older ones are launched into space the Leviathan will slowly make its way to the planets surface. It is here that the Leviathan will reach full maturity. Once Phaaze has found a planetary target to corrupt it will launch the Leviathan into space.
The Leviathan is capable of interstellar travel, creating wormholes in space to expedite the journey. Instinctively it homes in on its planetary target. Shortly after impact the bioform dies, leaving its armored shell to protect the Phazon core. Before it dies the Leviathan often attracts and enthralls a local large predator. After mutating it through intense Phazon exposure, it compels the creature to protect the core. The core then begins to seep into the planet, replacing the local ecosystem with one based on Phazon.
