Xeodes always must have an Affliction.
When creating one from a MYO, you can only choose from Safe afflictions.
Xeodes are quite rare and can only be created from the soul of those who previously had permanent afflictions. When an Aphex's or Dephx's soul returns to the earth, they have a chance of returning to The Harrow where they form into seeds over time. These eventfully grow into plants, holding not fruit, but a single egg with this new form.
Xeodes are very mysterious, seemingly adapted to survive the dangers of The Harrow, but many leave their nest to explore the vast world. It is rare that a Xeode will remember their past life, but may carry quirks or habits from their old body. Xeodes are often feared by all other lifeforms that do not call The Harrow their homes. It is not confirmed why, but many depict a strange feeling of dread when in proximity to these creatures.
Xeodes have an array of personalities, and often are secluded due to their rarity and method of creation. Xeodes do not understand what they are or where they come from but often seek companionship from those of their old kin. They are incredibly strong, sometimes many are not entirely sure of their limits and can end up breaking things unintentionally.
