Virruuur, the Pathogen Overlord
Bio: 10 million years before the Darkspore invasion, when sentience was just emerging on Verdanth, a virus emerged with it. This virus fed on the types of electricity found in sentient brains. It also promoted the growth of new brain cells, resulting in more intelligence and more food for the virus. This continued until the sentients developed gene-splicing technology, and of course they first tried to exterminate the virus that stalked among their neurons. However, it was impossible to defeat, and then to everyone's shock, one of the specimens of the now-named Iratta unbeatabilis, under a microscope spelled out "Stop trying to kill us". This shocked everyone, as the virus was now known to be sentient. The virus then explained that it intentionally altered the Verdanthi to be more sentient, assisting its growth.
A few years prior to the Darkspore invasion, a group of Iratta formed a body of their own, which they named Virruuur. It was a swarm of them, and because the Iratta could brainwash nearby pathogens, Virruuur nearly cured the world of all diseases. When the Darkspore came, it turned out that Orcus's theory of "Biomolecular Ascendance" was in fact correct, but only for one known species: Irratta unbeatabilis. When the Darkspore arrived, the various genetic heroes fought bravely, but when it seemed they would fail, Virruuur used its natural abilities to command every pathogen on the planet to simultaneously to attack E-DNA. This halted the invasion but soon afterward Crogenitor Xylan sent a weapon to wipe out all unicellular life. It almost succeeded, but before it could, Virruuur copied down all the DNA into its own system and began to regrow the organisms after the weapon had hit. Afterward, Crogenitor Astra transacted Virruuur with E-DNA and it used its powers to command all forms of diseases to battle the Darkspore.
