Mārroplex’s followers are bizarre loners who prefer the company of vermin like insects, spiders, worms, or rodents. They gain the hardiness of a hive complex at the cost their minds. Lesser followers gain the Feed Us trait. The most dedicated devotees of the Devil of Pestilence may retain their mind and gain the We Are Many trait.
