A holoparasite, also known by its magic variant as a guardian spirit, is a special being that is bound to the single person that summoned it. It is summoned through either a deck of tarot cards for the magic version or a parasitic nanomachine injector for the machine version. The nanomachine injector can be purchased by traitors.

The only difference between the magic and tech versions are their summon methods and appearance. They both have access to the same abilities. This means that traitors can get an ally that Wizards are also able to get!

Overview

A holoparasite is a special ghost-like being that lives inside of its master. It can communicate with its master telepathically (and the master can communicate back), as well as emerge from and retreat back into its master at will. If the Holoparasite tries to escape its master and moves too far away, it will automatically be moved back to them. The Holoparasite itself is technically invincible on its own, but upon taking damage, the damage is transferred to its master, albeit at a lower amount. If the master dies, the spirit dies, as well. When the user dies, their body is instantly consumed and dusted by the Holoparasite's need for their life energy, preventing cloning. This means that the master and the spirit will have to watch out for each other to ensure the survival of both.

Types of Holoparasites

Before summoning, the summoner can choose a guardian's stats (from A to F), a major ability, and minor abilities using 15 points in the guardian creator's menu. Increasing a stat costs 1 point per rank, while abilities have different costs generally scaling with their practicality.

The guardian can be set to "Ranged" for 3 points, giving it a ranged projectile attack.

Attack: Increases the guardian's damage by 5 per rank, at A rank the guardian can smash walls. If the guardian is ranged, it will instead increase their projectile damage by 2.5 per rank.

Defense: Decreases the guardian's damage transfer by 20% per rank down to 25%.

Speed: Increases the guardian's attack speed.

Potential: Increases the power, length, or decreases the cooldown of the guardian's major ability.

Range: Increases the guardian's range by 2 tiles per rank. At F rank the guardian cannot move on its own and will stay "behind" its summoner.

The Holoparasite can select a Battle Cry that they will automatically shout on attacking. This is limited to six letters. For instance, putting in "ORA" for the battle cry will make you shout "ORA!!"
