Description: The Facehugger has one purpose, and one purpose only; to deposit a drone egg inside of a host. They accomplish this by "hugging" the host's head with their long, finger-like appendages, and then wrapping their prehensile tail around the victim's neck. They then insert an ovipositor down the throat, laying the egg. After completing this task, she dies.

Description: After hatching from the drone egg and feeding on their meaty home for some time, the Chestburster finally emerges from the victim in a dramatic fashion. Still fragile, the precious infants will flee from conflict if possible until their carapace hardens. They are surprisingly fast, and will grow into a Drone quickly if able to secure enough food.

Description: The drone is the fundamental caste of the Xenomorphs, which require hosts (like humans; something bigger than a house cat) to propagate the species. They are capable of turning hosts into Xenomorph Eggs to reproduce even in the absence of a Queen; however, they prefer to entrap them for future drone-egg insertion by Facehuggers if their Eggs are already available (as this uses only one host to make a drone instead of two). Drones have a thick exoskeleton and deadly claws and tail. They also have a nasty bite, with an even grosser projectile tongue biter.

Description: Here the Xenomorph was seen to exhibit a different exoskeleton once the colony was well established and the drone has matured; this is called the soldier caste. Humans invaded and attempted to terraform one of their worlds, with unpleasant results for all concerned. The Xenomorphs appear to be considerably less cautious once a Queen has taken the throne.

Description: Hosted by a large dog, this Xenomorph displayed a different quadruped anatomy; it was perhaps less intelligent than an alien hosted by a human, but just as predatory and relentless. Also, the runner life cycle is different than that of those hosted by a human; they skip the Chestburster phase, emerging from their host as a miniature version of the adult form.

Description: This rather unfortunate result of scientific experimentation combined attributes of Homo sapiens and Internecivus raptus; she more than made up for her lack of alien offensive accoutrements with brute strength. Tainted by her human motivations, this is the only Xenomorph variety thus far to not identify with the hive.

Description: The Xenomorph Queen is always the largest and most intelligent female of the hive, and the only one that can make Xenomorph Eggs without a host. She is a ferocious opponent that will detach herself from the enormous egg-laying sack to defend her brood. She has four arms instead of the usual two; the extra pair of arms could be the vestigial remains of the absorbed Hive male, a coupling similar to that of Earth's angler fish.
