One day, a survivor awoke to find their face stolen by the Oblivion Mosquito. Even their own family looked straight into their eyes but did not see them. Dejected, overcome with loss the survivor drifted from their home to the indifferent stares of their comrades and loved ones.
Some time ago, the Oblivion Mosquitos had flitted near. Its bite was painless, saliva filled with enzymes rendering its bite just a warm wet pressure like a kiss on the ear. Mixed in the saliva, tiny eggs, aggressive and growing quickly in the nutrient rich fibers of a survivor's brain.
In the saliva, there is also a harmless virus that passes easily from survivor to survivor. The infected begin to lose sight of the eggs' host, their face disappearing. The virus will erase the face of the survivor as the eggs mature in their brain.
When the eggs are ready to hatch they disrupt the neurotransmitters of their host, dragging them into a pit of despair. In this state they wander out into the darkness following the invisible trail of pheromones that will lead them back to the mosquito that laid the eggs.
As the survivor wanders alone, the eggs begin to hatch. The strongest larva will devour the rest, leaving it to feast on the survivor's brain matter, leaving a lurching husk.
When the larva pupates it will detach the survivor's head from its body. Wearing the head like a shell, the toothsome pupa will drag the remaining corpse through its slimy trail back to its mother.
When they finally meet, they share their first and last meal of the survivor's remains. Bathed in the hormones of its mother's saliva, the pupa matures, sprouting wings and flying off to live its own lonesome existence.
