They after all, mutate with other living creatures like humans, engineers, predators and, er.. This is a pretty far flung and small needle in a universe-sized haystack but hey, that's sci-fi!
During the creative process of Prometheus, all involved that includes Fox and Ridley had a strong desire for this film to launch off in its own way so that by the end, it would not connect directly to the original ALIEN, but instead run parallel to it. This is something that I talked about many, many times in the press burst around the release of the movie.
As you probably remember, there was a lot of interest as to whether Prometheus was a "prequel" - the answer was, "Yes.
Sort of. So this may make Prometheus the non-Alien-canon or may eventually catch up via the random theory I mentioned in point 3. It seems that the stuff used to engineer DNA became unstable, and started to create its unexpected lifeforms as seen in the film - this is my take on the running holo vid of the Engineers evacuating the base when it goes wrong. The engineers had mistakenly create the aliens and had tried to set a plan to wipe them out in place star maps in the bridge of the alien ship - in one novel Ripley meets one of the Engineers who telepathically conveys his hatred of all other life but mostly the hatred and need to destroy the Aliens first so he leaves her for later.
The Prometheus film takes place on a planet covered with bio-weapons. There is no evidence the Xenomorph has any natural relative and could have been made completely from scrap by the Engineers. The ship in Alien has a body in a chair that looks like an Engineer.
From this, it looks like the Xenomorph got lose and destroyed most, if not all, of the Engineer civilization. From a ship similar to this, the Predators could have gained their initial seed stock of Xenomorphs Engineers may be extinct by this point. It does seem that Xenomorphs have a basic genetic code which is not affected by the host and then they take additional code from their hosts.
I do not know if the classic Xenomorph is from several generations of breeding through Engineers. The Xenomorph in Prometheus is simply one of the original specimens that got released and began reproducing. The fact it used an Engineer as a host is probably why it looks so similar to classic Aliens and is causing most confusion.
I think the Predators and Engineers were enemies so the engineers retaliated against the Hish or Yautja or whatever you call the Predators; first by creating humanity, then when humans seemed ineffective, they decided to wipe predators and humans out using a new weapon that could kill, kill, and kill some more, all the while breeding and breeding like nobody's business, instead of wiping out humanity or the Predators, it backfired, wiping out the Engineers as for whether they evolved naturally I think they did, with some help from the Engineers, hence the wicked modifications caused by different hosts.
From AvP, it looks like Predators did not have any trouble convincing humans to hand over a small group of hosts as often as they needed them. Thus, it's possible that Aliens again, in the form we know them can have multiple "origins," one being some Aliens that Predators bred via humans thousands of years ago, and another origin point being the Prometheus' encounter with the Black Goo on the Engineers' planet.
Could it be the the engineers were simply the first species ever to exist, then they created humans and the rest of life on earth as an experiment to show the parameters of their power. Then after a while billions of years the engineers saw that the humans where the superior species and with the help of the engineers assisting human evolution, the humans became smart, even too smart.
The engineers then fealt scared of the human's power. The engineers then wanted to eradicate us, so they created two species of alien, the black and the red, planted them on a planet and where waiting to see which species of alien would be dominant black so they can plant it on earth to eradicate us. The plan obviously failed as the whole planet became a wasteland killing all the surveying engineers bar one the one we see in Prometheus. The engineers needed a force smarter and more elusive than the engineers and created the predators as a result.
For a time the predators may have been loyal to the engineers, but soon realized that they wanted to have their own agenda, thus taking the alien remnants from the planet from Prometheus and taking them to earth.
The humans, expecting the engineers to teach them, found the predators instead, who offered knowledge in exchange for human sacrifice, the humans obliged.
Please see the PHB for the wording. The motivation can be something like one of the members in the party tamed you, through magic or other means, the reason why it has such a low blind vision, is simply that I don't know what the limits for it could be.
ShiroYami talk , 5 May UTC I didn't decide to make it a class on grounds of absorbing traits from other races, I barely even considered adding that feature. It is all to create the perfect predator. It also aids in removing the chance of a player choosing a class that makes no sense with a xenomorph. At 1st level, I'm not actually the xenomorph yet, I'm controlling the "host", which is what your race choice represents.
I'm proficient with "claws, tail and jaws" but not any weapons or armor that my host could use. There's not much to do at 1st level, can't really fight. At 2nd level, I have "natural armor". The Drone is the most basic and common form of Xenomorph found in the Hive.
They serve as both the species' primary assault caste and the gatherers of new hosts for impregnation. They are fast, strong, reasonably tough, and savage combatants.
Even in death, the Drone is dangerous, as its highly pressurized bloodstream will cause it to burst apart when killed and drench nearby enemies in acid. Drones have been known to have both smooth and ridged heads, as well as other minor physical differences such as the presence of prominent blades on the upper forearms. Praetorians are considerably larger than most other adult Xenomorphs, typically around twice the size of a Drone, but are smaller than Queens.
They act as guards to the Queen within the Hive their name taken from the Praetorian Guard, the loyal bodyguards who would protect the Emperor in Ancient Rome. They are easily distinguished by the large, flat crest, like a crown, that extends from the rear of their heads.
It is thought Praetorians may be capable of molting into a Queen if no Queen is present. Praetorians possess much more concentrated acidic blood, and they have been seen to produce a deafening scream that will summon additional Drones to their aid. Xenomorph Queens are generally considered the apex of the species.
Gorman revealed that when they found themselves trapped in the ventilation between advancing aliens coming from both directions, Gorman fired with his pistol on one of them with no effect at all, instead it looks like they bounce off presumably from the head carapace. Vasquez had earlier also held an alien at gun point and fired her pistol at the head, which apparently goes through and the alien rattles away, obviously damaged.
High-caliber firearms, with the explosive rounds of a M41A pulse rifle may cause the creatures to detonate. High-energy beam weapons, such as the plasma weapons used by Yautja, appear to be the best way to kill the Xenomorphs. They are not invulnerable to melee weapons, although such equipment is likely to be destroyed upon contact with their acidic blood, with a few notable exceptions. It also leaves the user in close proximity to the alien's blood, which is in all cases an extremely dangerous venture.
Cocooning is a trait used by Xenomorphs to reproduce quickly. A human, or any other creature, if dragged away, would have a cocoon of saliva and resin placed over them their face left free, perhaps for respirative purposes or for hopefully attracting other would-be victims with their potential moans and cries for help , usually in an area where the Queen has produced a large quantity of eggs, so that the Facehuggers are able to latch onto them easily and deposit a Xenomorph larva in their chest.
This rapid genetic regeneration is also another evolutionary trait of the Xenomorph to ensure its very survival as a species. Praetorians can act as a princess of the hive to become a queen. If this is so, then Hudson is correct with them being like bees. The Xenomorph Queen can lay specialized eggs that are bigger like queen egg cells in bees which are bigger than drone cells that upon hatching can carry on the species through making other hives after the new female cocoons into a queen.
If this is the case though, that a drone can become a queen when no queen is present, then cocooning is also a method of survival for the Xenomorph species and helps prove how difficult it is to actually eradicate a xenomorph infestation. The Xenomorph have been reported. This is because the Xenomorph's form is at least partially affected by its host, so that different species of hosts will create different varieties of Xenomorph. Regularly, Xenomorphs are depicted as tall, slender creatures with a roughly human biomechanical design.
The chest area appears to be rib cage-like in design. However, other groups such as those spawned from the hidden temple in Antarctica and those found many centuries later, they are depicted as being shorter and bulkier organisms, as well as being more quadrupedal. Those Xenomorphs that have been matured for a particularly long period of time will have grown ridges along their cranium , whereas younger members will still have smooth cowls covering their skulls.
These differences is what differentiates the younger Drone and the older Warrior castes. The Drones used as a "worker" caste, instead of mating-capable males have the smooth cowl while the Warriors display the ridges.
The Drones and Warriors have different tasks: warriors defend the hive, and drones hunt potential hosts, while some live only to protect the queen, such as hive warriors or praetorians.
Xenomorphs have six fingers, with the index and middle fingers conjoined into one digit, ring and little fingers also conjoined, and thumbs on both sides. Despite this, those Hadley's Hope individuals only have five fingers, with the second thumb missing. This may be a mutation effect from that particular hive, or may indicate that the lose their second thumb at some point during maturation.
Xenomorphs are normally plantigrade , though Runner Xenomorphs are digitigrade , owing to its quadrupedal host organism. In stark contrast, much later Xenomorphs have similarly digitigrade hind legs set up in a manner that does not conform with the appearance of previously-seen members of the breed.
This is complicated by the fact that these Xenomorphs were spawned by a Queen grown from cells derived from a clone of Ripley, making their genetic heritage muddled at best. This could mean it was a simple huge mutation. The tail is a huge variation between the various hive infestations reported. In some, it was roughly the length of the rest of the body, making up a third of their overall length and possessing a small, almost surgical stinger -like barb on the end; however in other specimens the tail is extended in length and features a large, knife-like blade at the tip.
In some members, the tails have also supported a ridge of spikes right before the blade, which appears to help some breeds swim better. Their tails are known to reach a full body length in and of itself.
Reports exist that indicate that if "stung" by a Xenomorph's stinger, the barb can sometimes remain lodged in the victim. The most notable feature of the Xenomorph species is the elongated, banana -shaped head. Interestingly, a Drone will not kill a host body already infected, or at least when infected with a Queenburster. There has been one detail on an alien's head that may be an eye being so small and the same black as the skin. It is hard to see if these are eyes or an implant on the skin.
Other proposed conjectures include that the eyes are similar to a desert-burrowing lizard's eyes; meaning that they lay under a thin layer of skin, yet are deep enough that they are not visible from the outside. Another idea is that their whole head is one big compound eye, but there is absolutely no proof of this. Despite this, the Xenomorphs could theoretically see. Certain specimens have shown an actual, physical, humanoid skull built under the smooth carapace, with the smooth top working like a one-way visor.
Along the back of most Xenomorphs' bodies are a series of appendages that appear to have no function.naheasontelifa.puttvabwallveponcisolezytofouli.co is about empowering individuals to live their best life. Our holistic programs help you gain vitality, lose weight and reach your health goals.
