WK Parasite
Parasite / Vampire shown from Volume 9 of the Light Novels

Paranormal Parasites (パラサイト), otherwise known as "Vampires" or "Demons", are otherworldly beings that infest human beings and turn them into inhuman creatures known as Vampires. Michaela Hongou is one such individual who was infested by a parasite.

Background & HistoryEdit

Introduced in the Volume 9 of the Light Novels, these Parasites are one of main antagonists in the third arc of the series, bringing about new characters such as the Stars, the Maximilien Device people, and many others.

They first appeared through the Micro-Black Hole experiment conducted by the USNA in the attempt to understand the method behind the Matter-to-Energy conversion of the Strategic Class Magic, "Material Burst", used in the Korean peninsula. They then traveled inside USNA soldiers and others to Japan where they searched for the perfect hosts who possessed strong desires of their own.

In their pursuit of the perfect host, they killed several Magicians, including those related or from the Saegusa Family, attracting the attention of Saegusa Family ( cooperate with them and get involved in order to stop the attacks on Magicians), USNA and later on Chiba Family (the Yoshida Family ally with them and get involved) along with Tatsuya's help factions.

Peculiarities / FeaturesEdit

Even though, they are named Vampires, they don't drink blood, but are using blood to reproduce and implant one of them into a new host. During such a process the blood is used and converted, making it seem like a Vampire attack. What they usually use is the person's (host candidate's) spiritual energy. If the process fails, then the reproduced parasite returns to the host from the host candidate, leaving the latter dead and with a blood loss.

ParasitesEdit

They possess psychic ability; able to cast magic just by thinking it but their lack of imagination makes their attacks very simplistic. Their bodies consist of a Pushion core surrounded by Psion as armor or coating over it. They have a consciousness, but do not carry the memories of their previous host. 

Tatsuya was unable to destroy the parasites at first because their forms are undetected by normal sense, but he later creates a magic to defeat them with Miyuki's help.

Parasite HostsEdit

The people who get infected by a parasite, develop an abnormal structure within their brain, between the left and right parts of the brain which also links the two together, giving them many new abilities (which are as of yet not researched or studied by the scientist).

The newly gained abilities include

  • to cast magic without the need to use a CAD - the activation speed of magic for the host increases as they do not need to use a CAD hence cutting down on the number of processes for casting Magic.
  • to telepathically contact other Vampires (parasite/parasite hosts) - the host/parasites consider themselves as individuals while at the same time share the same consciousness.

To possess any host and remain stable inside it, the host must have strong desires or emotions.

Ancient Magic DefinitionEdit

The Ancient Magic has also globalized and International conferences have been hosted in London (England) with the aim to standardize terms and concepts and refine them.

“Parasite is also one of the acknowledged terms. Monsters, evil spirits, djinns, demons, of all the various entities in the different countries, we call the magical beings that infest human beings and turn them into inhuman creatures as parasites. Even if Ancient Magic has become globalized, that still doesn’t change the fact that they keep their secrets to themselves, so it’s not surprising that everyone here with a modern magic background doesn’t know about it.”

Discussion Between Yakumo and TatsuyaEdit

Yakumo & Tatsuya Talk About Spirits
Yakumo informs Tatsuya (after Tatsuya manages to break through the technique), that 'Mirage Cloak' is a technique originally designed to shield against "Eyes that are not of this World". He doesn't tell Tatsuya the design but lets him figure it out himself.
Yakumo & Tatsuya Discussing About Parasites & Demons
With that Tatsuya asks about things that are out of this world. He tells that the enemies are not restricted to just humans and it isn’t rare for some of them to strike a deal with forces beyond this world. When Tatsuya conveys Mikihiko’s opinion about Ancient Magic’s claims that encounters with actual spirits being rare. Yakumo verifies that Tatsuya’s friend refers to a Yoshida clan member. He implies that –
Actual run-ins with bona fide spirits are extremely rare, but incursions because someone else provided the impetus are not that infrequent.

—Tatsuya verifying his understanding with Yakumo’s Explanation

Upon Tatsuya’s understanding only this part Yakumo is not completely satisfied and further explains that Spiritual Beings (SB) are legitimately “creatures from another world”, telling Tatsuya that he should have an encounter or two with them.
Ah, conscious thought and self-awareness are both secondary. Bacteria does not have consciousness or self-awareness, but it is able to enter the human body and affect the operations of the human body enough to impact health. In addition, they even have the incomplete ability to self-replicate. However, even if they don’t fulfill the requirements of a “living creature” at the intellectual level, that’s not enough to deny that they are “living creatures” with the ability to infect the human body.” “You are saying that Spiritual Beings – nothing more than isolated spirit bodies removed from physical phenomena also qualify as “creatures not of this world”?” “Strictly speaking, they are more like creatures who do not possess a physical body. In addition, has anyone proven that spirits do not possess thought of their own?” “……It is true that no one has done that. On the other hand, I know of one person who might.

—Tatsuya discussing with Yakumo about “creatures from another world”

They further discuss the current theory of spiritual magic, and turn the subject to Paranormal Parasites –
“Modern magic believes that a Spiritual Being is an information body isolated within the information dimension from its natural phenomena. Since it originated from natural phenomena, it is possible to use Magic Sequences to recreate the original effect. This is the current theory behind Spiritual Magic.”

—Tatsuya stating the Modern Magic Theory/View Point of Spiritual Magic

Tatsuya asks about their origins which Yakumo also doesn’t know but suggests that they may have the same origin like a human spirit.
I believe, regardless of whether the monster comes in humanoid or beast form, the only thing that can cause the living creatures of this world to alter in such a fashion must come from demons originating from spirit information bodies. Afterwards, just as how the physical manifestation of these spirits have one step in our world and the alternate shadow of this world, demons originating from the spirit also straddle the mental landscape and the aether. The reason that spiritual encounters are infrequent is not because they don’t exist, but because we are not equipped with the ability to observe the human spirit. While this line of thinking would definitely be heresy in the eyes of London, these are my true feelings on the matter.
