Chrysacids are the spiny limb-like growths that sprout from those infected with the chrynalus strain of the exsur- gent virus (p. 174). Infected biomorphs always express chrysacid polyps, though they are also known to grow from infected synthmorphs and sometimes other devices and structures to which the nanoplague has spread.

Adjust stats, enhancements, and gear as appropriate for morph/NPC. At the GM’s discretion, exsurgents in this stage of infection may retain enough intelligence to use complex weapons and tools, such as guns.
