[casually drops thsi here] so anyways,
a take on a half shifted form for adri, very close to what other mimics look like. the thing is that when he (or other mimics) transform into their “”true”” forms, the skeleton goes through explosive change, and the rest of the body cant keep up with it so they look tattered and torn for a while until the growth stops, and the body can start to repair and build itself over the frame.
also that excessively shiny thing inside adris chest is his core. which is kinda broken, so it leaks light even through the protective wrap around it
