Other Notes: Sometimes, a tinsiana lays a clutch of three fist-sized black eggs. There is roughly a 10 percent chance that a summoned scorpion demon will do so in a given year. When bathed in a mortal’s life-blood, an egg hatches to reveal a tiny scarlet scorpion that seeks out a host in the manner of a full-grown tinsiana using Form Reduction Technique. If it successfully hollows out a victim’s soul and breaks free of its flesh, it becomes a full-grown adult scorpion demon.
