I will give it a try with another example from Perry Rhodan:
The symbiosis with the plants kept Bardioc alive and slowly he began to gain control of the plants. He developed psi abilities and started to expand. Over the course of five thousand years, the brain covered an area of ten square meters, and it grew faster and faster. When a cerebrum accidentally fell on a small animal and controlled it, Bardioc learned to control the animals of the planet . He used them to transport brain parts and soon the brain covered the whole continent.
Now BARDIOC began to expand his influence. First he captured a single Hulkoos spaceship that happened to be near Parföx-Par . Finally, he brought the entire Hulkoos people under his control and made them his auxiliaries . Bardioc made offshoots, the Little Majesties spread by the Hulkoos, each of which could mentally dominate an entire planet .
This whole development was driven by Bardioc's dream, in which Bardioc still felt threatened by his brothers. In order to gain mobility, BARDIOC developed his incarnations : CLERMAC , SHERNOC and VERNOC . These had much stronger mental abilities than the Little Majesties and were absolutely obedient to him.
