The Xenomorph XX121better known just as Xenomorph (which literally translates to “strange form” from Greek ξενος, xenos=strange and morphe=form) or the “Alien“, are an extraterrestrial, endoparasitoid species with multiple life cycles, possibly originating from the planet Proteus (also known as Xenomorph Prime). One of the deadliest of all known alien species, these creatures need a host organism in order to reproduce. The appearance of the Xenomorph varies depending on its host.
The human phenotype is generally around 7–8 feet, and roughly 136.0 to 181.4 kilograms in weight, with a long, muscular tail and large, curved, oblong head. The Queen of this species is generally twice as large (they can grow even larger, some even up to 100 feet tall, and stronger if given time) and possesses superior speed, strength and intelligence. The term Xenomorph is derived from the Greek words xeno (“stranger”, “alien”, and “foreigner”) and morphe (“form”, “shape”). Another fact about Xenomorphs, is that as they peel back their outer lips to reveal the inner jaw, a terrible stench like rotting meat ensues, possibly due to their diet, or maybe just part of their natural make up.
