ConceptThe player character's situation is similar to fetus in fetu, a rare phenomenon in which a mass of tissue resembling a fetus is found inside the body. Though there are multiple explanations for how this can happen, one scenario is that the fetus in fetu is a twin that was absorbed by its host in the womb, as is the case in Covetous. Fortunately, although the condition can potentially pose a serious health risk, its outcome is not as gruesome as in the game, and it may be treated by surgically removing the growth.
