Being known as Ammonite, the creature
appears to be extremely
dangerous in any combat situation. Reports from the
battlefield reveal that this creature has the
natural ability to fly and uses
Psi skills commonly. The Ammonites are capable of surviving hits that would easly kill a Viper. Also, it is rumoured
creatures can move items just with
The being has the appearance of nothing more but just a floating robe, with
its weapon just hovering before it. However, they are agile, strong, and have very good reaction time. They are able to ?conduct accurate firepower offences? and are very good at throwing. Their ability to fly allows them
hide on roofs and avoid explosive weapons like rockets.
The Ammonites rely
on their PSI skills to perform all required tasks. While in captivity
at X-Corps base, the being never used its physical skills. Communication with the creature was really easy. It could read our thoughts as easily as we can hear sounds. However, this was very dangerous. The creature couldn't be tricked
, and was able to easily control the minds of scientific staff that was currently working on the lab
The Ammonites are extremely intelligent and appear to be commanders of the Alien Incursion. Even a simple soldier can have many warriors of other races under its command. They seem to be especially close to the
race known as the Morlocks, which apparently act as the
bodyguards of the Ammonites.
We have discovered that
the Ammonites had a very well developed civilization in the past. However, it all has changed now. The Ammonites' religion is to worship the Overmind, and to do whatever the Overmind wants them
to do. If any individual resists the Overmind, then it is ritually sacrificed to the Overmind. All the aliens watch the ceremony to see how the traitors are punished, and to learn the respect to the Overmind.
the reason of making the Ammonites the
commanders of the alien incursion. Their natural ability to read minds gives them
a very important advantage in controlling
other races. The commanders always know what the soldiers think: whether they are afraid, planning to rebel, or lying. However, that doesn't apply to the PSI skilled species like the Ammonites or Grey leaders and commanders, who can protect their minds efficently enough to prevent other individuals from reading their thoughts. To pass through the PSI defences, it is required to have better PSI skill. Since higher ranked Ammonites have better skills than common soldiers, they can easily
control their Ammonite minions just like soldiers of any other species. At the top of Ammonite hierarchy are highly PSI specialized commanders, who have immense control over the alien society, and are responsible to execute all of the Overmind's will.
[Could reveal Ammonites Origin and add new possible research subject "Overmind"]
Isn't there too much information about the Overmind?, I thought it was going to be a "surprise" for the near end of the game.
Alien Goal and Cloak entry will probably need synchronisation
, possible contradiction in sight.
