Bodysnatchers



Appearance:

Before beginning the process of transforming into a person, bodysnatchers appear to be nothing more than ordinary reflective puddles of water. Simply by observing closely, however, there are ways to tell whether a puddle is simply a puddle or a bodysnatcher lying in wait. The first clue is that bodysnatchers always produce perfect reflections, regardless of the weather. The second clue is that, unlike a normal puddle, a bodysnatcher will not evaporate or be absorbed by sponges. The third and final clue is to see if the puddle is in a location where a puddle could be formed. During their transformation stage, bodysnatchers appear as a bubbling puddle, rather than a still reflective one.

Weaknesses:

During Stages 1 and 2 of their lives, bodysnatchers have no way to defend themselves, and are extremely flammable. Even a tiny flame is enough to set them alight and kill them. During the early months of Stage 3 bodysnatchers do not have any of the resistances their victim may have, leaving them vulnerable to just about everything. As Stage 3 progresses, bodysnatchers will gain the resistances their victim has, but to a lesser degree. At Stage 4, bodysnatchers are exact copies of their victim, thus being able to be killed in the same ways.


Behavior:

Stage 1 - Puddle:
Before acquiring a victim, bodysnatchers remain mostly stationary. The only times they move is when they are in danger or when they need to find a location with more people passing through. When they move, they are only able to do so very slowly.

Stage 2 - Transformation:
Once an individual has stepped in its puddle, a bodysnatcher will begin to slowly move to find safe location where it can begin turning into a copy of the victim. Bodysnatchers are unable to do anything but complete the transformation once it has begun, leaving them completely vulnerable. After two weeks, the transformation completes.

Stage 3 - Growth:
When transformation is complete, bodysnatchers appear to be exact doubles of their victims. However, a newly transformed bodysnatcher is very weak and the only thought on its mind is to avoid being killed. After a couple months of sapping their victim’s life energy to become stronger, a bodysnatcher will begin to develop the same personality as their victim. As more time passes, a bodysnatcher will become bolder and venture out into public spaces.


Stage 4 - Takeover:
Should a bodysnatcher not be killed within a year and a half of beginning its growth stage, it will successfully steal all of its victim’s energy and takeover their life. At this point, a bodysnatcher will have gained all of its victim’s memories, powers, and knowledge up until the point they first made contact. As for the victim, they will die and turn into a Stage 1 bodysnatcher.

Seems like a perfectly reasonable response

Oh right that episode. I sorta see the similarity I guess, but I didn't have it in mind when writing this.

It is engine fluid, and it found and absorbed the girl with the star in her eye. Later it comes back when bill is at her worst. Also this mostly resembles the Mushi from Mushishi the "Mirror lake" It starts out as a puddle and slowly absorbs the reflection and energy of it's host till it turns into a full organism. it takes awhile before it comes and fully absorbs the host, to defeat it you have to show the mushi's reflection. They become exact copies if they succesfully copy the host. this whole lore pretty much describes their life cycle.

The dr who episode with bill has to be the most disappointing series, with the rest of Peter Capaldi's Dr Who being the most boring 3 seasons ever.
