With Halloween just past, this month's Featured Article concerns the artificial parasitic lifeform known as Sample Shoggoth.
Named after a type of protoplasmic monster from the Cthulhu Mythos, Sample Shoggoth is an amorphous black mass with colored bubbles that are not quite eyes or suckers, capable of swiftly shifting, extending and hardening into various shapes. It dissolves the body fats of its host and slips into the vacant space, taking over the functions normally carried out by the fat such as the distribution and storage of nutrients, effectively holding the host's life in its tentacles. Though it isn't contagious and won't usually leave its host completely, it will partially emerge in order to attack potential threats. Attempting to extract it risks it lashing out and tearing its host apart, or leaving them a skin-and-bones shell close to death.
