Among the multifarious castes within the Necrophage hierarchy, none are as mysterious or grotesque as the maggot-like "Innocent Lamb". While they resemble what one would expect a larval Necrophage to look like, of what little is known about the nature of these insectiod aberrations, it is well understood that they are incapable of breeding naturally, instead reproducing by the unspeakable process of transforming converts into Mori. (Nymphal Necrophages that, in time, molt into 'adult' members of The Faith.) Owing to this fact, it is unknown to those outside The Faith from whence Innocent Lambs originate, and into what, if anything, they grow.
Attempts by those brave or foolish enough to glean these creatures' origins, in an effort to better understand the nature of The Faith and its horrific adherents, are most often met with deadly resistance. Innocent Lambs are fervently defended by all castes of Necrophage, and raised by the Prophets of Decay with a surprising degree of care and compassion.
If one is pressed to attack, an Innocent Lamb defends itself with flaying claws and necrotic bile, but harming one presents the far more dire threat of drawing the ire of their guardians. Prophets of Decay proclaim these creatures to be the true children of God, and forgive no attempt to slay one.
