Genestealers- ok, so a Genestealer is capable of using an ovipositor to infect/impregnate the host with its own DNA, which results in the host being implanted with a parasitic Genestealer hybrid that the host is psychically compelled to care for, and eventually "gives birth" to, for lack of a better term. Is that correct? If so, how exactly does this "birth" take place? Does the ovipositor have to strike a specific place on the host? Where exactly on the host does the parasitic hybrid develop? How, exactly, does it emerge? More importantly what happens to the host?
Enslavers- It seems to be stated that a psyker "infected" by an Enslaver will undergo startling physical changes until they eventually become a host for an active warp portal that other Enslavers can emerge through. So, I'm having some trouble imagining how exactly this would appear to an observer. Does the "portal" literally overlap with the victim's body in some kind of Phantom Zone kind of paradox? Where on the victim does the portal emerge? Does the victim survive this process and/or remain conscious once the portal has developed?
Any help is appreciated! I'm looking forward to treating my players to these horrific Xeno threats and I want to make sure that my information is correct.
