The Fade is a mysterious, and highly deadly Kharaa subspecies from the Natural Selection Universe. It's is unknown how it became to be called a Fade, though it is considered the most nightmarish and vicious subspecies.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Fades are creatures that appear vaguely humanoid. Unlike other Kharaa, they're capable of walking on two legs, their arms ending in large mantis-like daggers used to cut open their prey.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Blink - A Fade's most notable ability, Fades are capable of turning their bodies from a solid structure into a shadowy mist. This state makes them almost invisible to the naked eye, and they can travel fast distances in a very short amount of time.
- Extra-Dimensional Vortex - A recently discovered, and frightening ability, Fades had been reported to open vortexes into another currently unknown dimension. Any marines or structures that phase into this sub-dimension lose contact with other dimensions entirely. It's impossible to say if this is truly a natural ability or artificial ability of the Fade.
