Abyssal parasites are Beast of burden Summoning familiars and have 7 slots for unnoted rune essence and Pure essence. As they are also Abyssal creatures, they are one of only three familiars able to hold essence, the others being the abyssal lurker and abyssal titan.

It prevents the 'full-prayer' drain usually caused when entering the Abyss, but players will still lose 10 prayer points per ~5–10 seconds when in the abyss.

The Abyssal Parasite looks similar to an Abyssal leech, but hovers slightly above the ground.
