    Johnny has a tentacled creature bursting forth from his solar plexus. This creature has a life of its own, with its own nervous system, and can move its arms of its own free will, its ability to talk has never been shown though it has never been explained to be mute. He sometimes takes to calling it "the freak". When Johnny enters a small object containing a person's DNA into the creature's mouth, it proceeds to spit out a Voodoo doll of that person. This term is used in his description many times, although actual Voodoo has never used dolls to control peoples actions, this was taken from European legend and belief.
