Variante are a race of artificially created myths, that were made by the M.C.C.P to serve hunters/predators against other mythological creatures.
Variantes are sentient symbiote-like beings that derive their strength from negative emotions, such as anger and depression. They usually have no specific form, but usually like very other mythological creature would incorporate in a human form. Some (if not most) would stay in their Variente default form, which is a black , eyeless humanoid being with a skeletal face.
The Variante also have to unique ability to have complete control over their own physiology. Both Variante and Variante-Hybrids can complete control of their physiology by assuming various forms that hold more reserved power (though this requires to have absorbed power from another being). Another ability that Variante all have is Mythic Compatibility. The Variante can attach themselves to any mythological creature aswell as hybrids (though this requires them to overwrite the less dominant physiology of said hybrid). Once the Variante is attached its being to a myth, The myth can freely use its abilities as much as they want, thought the downside to this is that the Variante becomes the subconscious of the host it's attached itself too. When the host comes to a negative action or reaction, the Variante can influence the host. The more the host listens, the sooner they delve into the Variante's darkness and become a merged consciousness, which the host cannot comeback from. They host may also gain a mental attachment to the Variante and acknowledges it, making the host dependent on the Variante.
Another unique ability they have is their natural ability to go undetected by anything whether it be radar, tracking, senses, spiritually, or nature itself. This makes them all the more deadly as they can swing by without having to make a sound and by the time you do hear them, the victim would be dead.

- Variante are susceptible to vibrating sounds. Vibrating noise makes them rage in agony, while vibrating harmony entrances them and can act as a drug to them.
