Cephalos appears as long, centipede-like parasites with a spiked bone protruding from its spine, which can be used as a weapon.

Cephalo grows larger in size when their host Majini's head has been seriously damaged or destroyed, breaking through the neck to defend the rest of the host body. At this point they take complete control of the body's function, acting as a replacement brain. Unlike the Spanish Plaga, they were based on Type 2 Plaga forms such as Cephalo are more resistant to sunlight and may be encountered outside at daytime.[1][excerpt 1]

Cephalos are incredibly resilient to gunfire. Since most of the body is outside of the host when they come out, further damage to the host body does little to stop it.

  1. Excerpt from kaitaishinsho, p.252:
    "頭部を破壊されるなど、 重大なダメージを受けたマジニの体内でプラーガが突然変異を起こし、 形態を変化させて宿主の頸部から露出した姿。 本来プラーガは光に弱く、 マジニの頭を失えばそのまま死滅するが、 このケファロは自然光にいくばくかの耐性を有し、 失った人間の脳機能をおぎなって宿主の肉体を制御できる。 人体からプラーガが長く伸びた姿が、 アフリカ原産の塊根性植物ケファロペンタンドラを想起させることから、 この呼称がつけられた。"
