Body Thief (11): When an intellect devourer overcomes a lone victim, it consumes the victim’s brain and enters the skull. As a one-minute ritual, the devourer can merge its form with that of a helpless or recently dead creature with SM-2 or larger. This requires a successful Quick Contest of Will against the victim’s HT (if he’s alive). The devourer cannot merge its body with that of a creature with no brain.
When an intellect devourer completes its merging, it psionically consumes the brain of the victim (which kills it if it is not already dead). The devourer can exit the body at any time as a standard action, bursting the victim’s skull and resuming its normal form.
After consuming its victim’s brain, an intellect devourer can instead choose to animate the body for up to seven days as if it were the victim’s original brain. Treat this as the Possession advantage with full memory access.
