Node  C +14 - Brain Fish,  1813

It's 1813, and the world has an issue.  Brain fish have begun a take over.

Brain fish: In larval form, these look like creepy goldfish.  They are semi-sentient

They invade by crawling into the mouth of their prey.  Once inside their cartilaginous skeleton dis-articulates - the fish can insert itself inside the system of the victim, where it wriggles up to the brain and wraps itself arounf the brain and brain stem. This process is exceedingly unpleasant for the host.

Once seated, the brainfish combined with the victims brain in such a way as the brainfish has access to all the memories and skills of the host - survivors describe this as being a passenger inside their own body.

The brainfish consider themselves the most advanced and wonderful species in existence; while other people are not really people.

Without a host, brain fish swim in the water and eat bugs and tiny fish. they find this life somewhere between horrible and unsatisfying. 

Brain fish prefer sentient beings as prey, but they settle for any sizable mammal.  

No brainfish is ever fringeworthy. No person infected by a brainfish is fringeworthy, even if they were before being ridden by a brain fish.  Once a Fringeowrthy is free of the brainfish, he resumes being fringeworthy.

it is really difficult to remove a brain  fish by surgery. However, the Brainfish can be removed fairly simply.  the Brainfish will try to bail out if it's host is in severe danger. If the host experiences extreme pain, then the brainfish will have an instinctual reaction to bail out. This is more effective if it's a surprise to the subject. A brainfish warned of the tactic will be able to marshal it's will to avoid this effect.  For a while.  Under prolonged torture the brainfish will always bail out and try to find a host in a better situation.

The Brain fish, once outside the host body can flee, looking disturbingly like an exploded brain/spider/fish. It has about 5 minutes to find water before it suffocates. 

Brain fish can breathe in either fresh or saltwater. 

As FW enter this world, the brainfish have taken over the United States government.  This has short circuited the war of 1812, as Brain Fish in Power would find a war too damaging of their hijacked power structure.

Emmisaries of the hijacked US Government are travelling to europe and China in the hopes of infected high evel ministers of the Qing dynasty and Napoleon's court. 

Brain fish can mate while riding hosts - this looks like the hosts having a long necking session.  The Brain fish laying eggs looks like the host vomiting. 

Larval brainfish must swim as fish before they mature enough to start looking for a suitable host.  Taken subject often develop a fondess for fish ponds.

These Brain Fish have hatched from a hidden cache.  They have lost all brainfish culture and are relearning everything from the knowledge of the men and women they have taken.
