WELCOME TO THE SECOND WAVE!
DESPITE OUR SLOW PROGRESS, WE ARE STILL MAKING SIGNIFICANT HEADWAY IN THE INVASION EFFORT!
ALTHOUGH WE HAVE FACED HARDSHIPS ON ALL SIDES, EVEN ENEMIES FROM WITHIN IN THE FORM OF ROGUE MIGNYANS...
WE ARE STILL DEDICATED INVADERS! TOTAL CONTROL OF THIS PLANET IS WITHIN OUR GRASP... AND EVEN PLANETS BEYOND!
OUR NUMBERS ARE ALWAYS GROWING! KEEP YOUR EYESTALKS UP, YE DOWNTRODDEN CRABS-
THERE IS HOPE YET!

NEW TO THE INVASION? HERE'S THE BASICS:

Mignyans are a race of alien crabs originating from an unknown source. Their sole goal seems to be invading other planets, replacing its inhabitants with more of their own through infection. The crab enters the body through any orifice, most commonly the mouth, and makes its way into the brain, killing the host and using their body for their own. As the infection spreads, parts of the body are replaced with the crab's own flesh, most often referred to as "meat." Most often, these parts are the ears and tail, but limbs and other parts of the body can be replaced as well! They are capable of disguising these parts as normal kemonomimi/humanoid features in public, to blend in with the uninfected population. If a Mignyan's host sustains an injury resulting in the loss of a limb after infection, the Mignyan can regenerate said limb at the cost of not being able to disguise it.

To avoid suspicion, most Mignyans will try and imitate the host's behavior. However, some choose not to for reasons of their own. Mignyans can infect anything with ease as long as it has a brain and blood- even corpses! They just prefer not to. They're stinky. Mignyan crabs are tiny and weak without a host, but once they find the host that's right for them, the possibilities are endless! The host-finding process can be rough, though. Once a Mignyan is in a host, exiting the host can be tough! The head and any infected, meaty parts of the body explode, ejecting the Mignyan crab and leaving the host body useless to any other invaders. Mignyans often aim for the top of the social ladder when it comes to infection, trying to infect hosts with lots of power and influence such as businessmen, politicians, or celebrities. Some prefer a slower lifestyle- crabs aren't a hivemind, and each of them can have different personalities and goals! Mignyans are capable of sensing other Mignyans, even when disguised, both to help collaborate with the invasion and to avoid infecting someone already infected!

Even though their main goal is to invade planets, it's not clear just why they're invading. Maybe it's for the galactic spice trade! Maybe it's just because they want to make more of themselves! Maybe exploring other planets is really cool! It varies from crab to crab, so you're never going to get a straight answer.
