Part of a project for university. This was a finalised creature design.
The Terror-Mites (Human Nickname) are a race of insect like life forms that inhabited A world with a high oxygen atmosphere, allowing for large insect creatures. They are fairly primitive but possess an unusual technology that allows them to re design DNA and effectively create/grow biological tools.
It was this ability that the "Saucer Men" found interesting and the reason why they decided to concur the planet that the Terror-Mites inhabited. Now the Terror-Mites are effectively slaves, forced to create biological weapons and vehicles for the saucer men. On rare occasions Terror-Mites have been deployed like shock troops against areas of Human resistance.Though naturally not too aggressive the Terror-Mites have been pain conditioned to attack and do so without mercy.
