|“||It's everyone for themselves on Hoxxes, and life is cheap. Whatever foul mind dreamt up these things is truly deranged, though. These invasive larvae will burrow into practically anything biological given half a chance, and will multiply aggressively once they do find a nice nest. Take out the carriers and larvae themselves with extreme prejudice. The stories we've heard from our predecessors on Hoxxes are not for children.|
|— Miner's Manual Description|
Carnivorous Larva, also known as Parasites, are hostile creatures found during missions in any region with the Parasites Warning. They appear to burst out when killing medium or larger enemies and flail around, gnashing at the Dwarves.
The HP of the Larva is not linked with its host, meaning overpenetration will not kill the Larvae along with the host.
