The Second Worst Thing from Bastion's Underground

Every child in Bastion has their own stories about the Underground, but they all know of the Maggot Children. The legend claims that babies thrown into the sewers grow into monstrous abominations. This particular urban myth is based on a truth even more horrible. 

Maggot Child
STR 7, DEX 12, WIL 10, 6hp, Bite (1d6).
These abominations act and speak as you would expect from any street urchin, right up until they're in biting range. On Critical Damage they inflict the target with their foul condition. The target immediately starts to secrete a white liquid from their skin, forming a cocoon. Within 24 hours the victim emerges as a Maggot Child. Any attempt to disturb the metamorphosis will cause the victim to lose d12 STR. If they survive this, they will retain their (mostly) human form.
