The Warrior Caste is the 'grunt' of the Arachnids, and primarily used as fodder and protection for the more specialized of its species. 6 feet long, their pattern will change to match their environment. Able to be mass produced, these aliens use their massive front mandibles to crush any and everything in their way.
The size of a house, these bugs basically acted as massive flamethrower tanks. Heavily armored, they would spray a flammable and corrosive stream of fuel to incinerate their enemies. A highly specialized caste, Tankers were seen a lot less than warriors, a trend with every special type.
Smaller and lighter armored than their counterparts, these winged warriors employed hit and run tactics and picked off their enemies one by one. A lot of times they would use the pincer on their tail to decapitate their prey.
Perhaps the smallest of the arachnids, bombardiers are small organisms fired from an unknown source that, like a grenade, will after a short moment explode killing anything nearby.
Control bugs are parasitic organisms, which enter a host through the mouth and slowly eat away at their brain. Whilst consuming their host they alter the hosts mind, to think and act for the arachnid hive.
These bugs act as a sort of radio antenna for the Arachnid hive. Entirely defenseless, these bulbous bugs brought biddings from the queen. Acting as a general, they telepathically led the less intelligent members of its species in battle. It has the ability to steal the knowledge of an organism via a sharp proboscis, which it can use to penetrate a skull and consume the victims brain.
As with most species, the queen was the biggest and baddest of the Arachnids. Smarter than a brain bug and infinitely more deadly, the queen knew how to play her cards right. This being said, the arachnids did all they could to keep the queen a secret. Should the queen be found, she was to attempt suicide and/or have warriors kill her to hide the hives secrets.
The God Bug
Otherwise known as behemecoatyl, the god bug is the ultimate life form of the arachnid caste system. Infinitely wise, and the size of half a planet, the god bug was able to absorb the knowledge of anything that came within its gaping maw. Without the god bugs guidance, the arachnids would be lost and primal. The only way to kill a God Bug is to destroy the entire planet it is resting inside.
A Message From Harls:
Hey y'all, I'll be going back to school soon and that means the monster comps are going to be even MORE inconsistent and randomly timed than usual. They'll still come, but most likely slower. Love ya. **in the mean time, ask me any question and I'll answer it eventually!
