This bizarre monster begins its existence as a spontaneous parasitic teratoma in the innards of a zombie, growing and feeding until large enough to "hatch" and gnaw its way out of its "parent." While it need never touch the ground, a lesion dislikes freely floating and can propel itself only weakly through the air, sometimes finding itself at the mercy of strong winds. Instead, it keeps itself anchored by at least one appendage at a time, swiftly pulling itself along solid surfaces.
While a lesion can subsist on almost any organic matter, it particularly craves fresh brains, and may spin a web of its own pus to ensnare living prey. When several lesion meet, they may even dig a pit and form a "glue trap" from their own mushy bodies.
Lesion emit a rather pitiful selection of gasps, whimpers, sighs and brief, shuddering moans. What sounds like disgust, however, is usually pure excitement as the monster catches scent of fresh food. With its soft, slimy form, it may even squeeze itself completely inside the corpse of fresh prey, wallowing in its meal with sheer delight.
