Similar to Corruption itself, Parasite Kings and Queens (as well as Echoes) give birth to Parasite eggs. However, Echoes are different in that they can birth fully-grown Parasites from any part of their body. They are the heads of the branches in the Hive Mind and are connected to Xenon Naginata, so much so that the virus itself seeps into their conscience. Echoes are directly infected with the virus’s pure essence and soul and as a result, assume his identity in their own unique way (i.e. Jason Cunningham). Their auras are black in color.
