Dream Peddler Template Graft

These fleshy creatures bond to a host’s back and sink fine filaments into the host’s brain to trigger its pleasure centers, “sweetening” their meal and triggering psychic abilities. Their hosts enjoy a mild euphoria, but they also become less motivated and more risk-averse, making this symbiend unpopular outside of drug dens and religious communes.
