Elder Parasite.jpg
Once, Elder Parasites were borne upon a plaguewind that swept out from the lost cities of the Ancients, bringing a time of madness and butchery to mankind. Now they are quite rare, but ironically prized-the vampirism and Berzerker strength they impart are valuable to those fighting for dominance of Newerth.
