Hellbugs are a mutated insect creatures on Earth in Defiance.

Biology Edit

Mutated from a harmless insect species from the Votanis system, samples of these creatures aboard the Arks mutated during the Arkfall disaster creating a dangerous form of life. The Hellbugs are vicious predators that live in large collective hive, usually within underground caverns on the terraformed Earth.

Hellbugs come in variety of forms:

  • Skitterlings: The smallest; Baby Hellbugs but are nimble and deadly when attacking in swarms.
  • Warriors
  • Archers
  • Monarchs
  • Matron: The Queen of the Hellbug hive.
  • Hellion: A rumored breed of Hellbug that is several stories tall and carries an army of smaller Hellbugs within their own bodies.

Though dangerous creatures, the inhabitants of Earth find them a useful resource. Its seems when the Hellbugs consume gulanite ore as a digestive aid, they excrete shtako (waste product) which contains unrefined petrohol.
