|Behind the Scenes|
|Universe||Natural Selection Universe|
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.
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.
- 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.
