Cooldown: 200 rounds

Defensive Chromatophores is a mutation that activates when the creature's health drops below 15% of their total ♥HP, or when the creature's party leader drops below 15% hitpoints and is visible within a distance of 30 tiles. This mutation is a signature mutation of the Patreon pet, Frillicent.[1]

While the creature is scintillating, they can take no other actions, but they will attempt to confuse all hostile creatures that are visible to them each turn. Each hostile can be confused only once by this effect.[2]
