The Corruptor’s tentacles consist of elongated muscle fibers laden with cancerous growths. As said growths increase in size, consuming the surrounding tissues in the process, they generate a powerful electromagnetic field that warps gravity around the creature, granting it flight. If the Corruptor does not regulate the growths, they are more than capable of completely consuming its tentacles.
The bulbous protrusions on the top and the sides of the creature constitute its raw brain mass, which also functions as a disposable protective measure. When something hits it with enough force, the tissue becomes a foamy substance that absorbs and redirects the kinetic energy of the impact. The damaged brain tissue is then discarded and regenerated.
These thick organs produce and store parasite spores, an ink-like substance that disrupts matter at a molecular level
. Any vehicles or personnel doused with this vile compound will become very vulnerable, as the atomic chains that keep them together turn brittle. The Corruptor also circulates the spores through the capillaries of its tentacles from time to time, and it seems to inhibit—and even regress—the development of its ever-present cancerous growths. It is assumed that the creature does this to adjust its flight capabilities to new atmospheres, and to prevent the cancerous cells from consuming its tentacles.
This pear-shaped gland contains a solid, mineralized mass that floats in a low-density liquid. Its walls are coated in an impermeable substance of variable viscosity, and lined with small filaments. When the mineral core inside the gland shifts due to movement or orientation changes, the liquid and the filaments provide instant feedback to the Corruptor, allowing it to maintain its balance and navigate both in atmospheric conditions and deep space.
