The Nervine demon
This demon - known as a Nervine - thrives in violently irritated nerves, eating its host's pain for food. In an odd symbiotic relationship, having this parasitic demon can be both good and bad. There's no way to know if one lives with you - while in a host, it looks like any other nerve in your body, except that it slithers around freely.
In rare cases, when the host organism dies the demon takes over the creature's mind and reawakens it as its own vessel. Only in this instance is the Nervine's true appearance revealed. In order to continue living, they extend the decaying organism's nerves outward, distort the skeletal structure, and use its newfound mobility to seek out other creatures and find more pain to eat.
