The Alien creature was designed by artist H.R. Giger for the Alien movies.
The Alien was first encountered by the crew of the commercial towing ship Nostromo on the planet LV426 (later known as Archeon). A collections of eggs were found on an derelict alien spaceship, but the origin of the species is unknown. It is rumoured that they may have been created by a Alien race as a form of weapon.
|Laid by the queen the egg contains a facehugger. It opens in response to a victim leaning over it.||Fast and able to leap large distances. It attaches itsef to a victims face. and implants an embryo in the victims stomach.||Emerging from the victims chest the chestburster quickly grows into a soldier by shedding it's skin.||7ft tall tough and extremely vicious. They are armed with razor sharp claws, a paralysing tail stinger and extensible jaws. Can develop into a queen.||The queen is far larger then a soldier but just as deadly. She is usually attached to the egg sac from which eggs are produced.|
The Aliens live in hives constructed inside existing structures from a secreted resign. Within the hive there are many soldiers and one queen that controls them. She resides in the enter of the hive in the egg chamber. The soldiers capture victims for implantation and bring them back to the hive.
This species is extremely dangerous in all its forms. It is tough and bleeds a very corrosive molecular acid. It is highly adaptive and intelligent. It has superb agility and is able to climb any surface. It is also very stealthy being difficult to spot both visually and via infra red. Contact with it should be avoided at all cost.
