NAME ORIGIN
    Giga is a metric prefix denoting one billion, in contrast to the Mega Parasite enemy. The word derives from the Greek gigas meaning "giant". A parasite is an organism that grows, feeds and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host. The word comes from the Greek parasitos meaning "person who eats at someone else's table".
