Powers: As well as having the standard powers of Brood, A Brood Queen has the following powers:
Embryonic Infection: Brood Queens have the Mn(75) abiliy to infect a host with a brood egg (DNA packet). Within a time frame equal to 10 turns x the rank number of the queen's psyche, the egg completely assimilates and/or rewrites the host's DNA and RNA.This process effectively destroys the host as a viable living being. Any genetically based powers and/or abilities that the host had are now assimilated into the newly "hatched" Brood. 10% of these Brood will have the Mn(75) ability to shapeshift into their hosts original likeness and form (and may even share the hosts mind and personality). There is a 5% chance that a Brood hatchling is a queen; 10% for a Royal; 20% for a Scientist; 65% for a Warrior.

Contacts: Brood hive that the individual Brood belongs to(Ex(20) Resources).
