Nemetrix Alien Specterminator by TheWalrusclown Nemetrix Alien Specterminator by TheWalrusclown
Ben 10 fan-reboot team
Reboot folder:…


Species: Ectodenian

Home World: Anur Phaetos

Prey: Ectonurite (Ghostfreak's species)

Powers/abilities: Specterminator has extendable, chain-like claws that it can use to lash out and ensnare targets, rendering the density-altering protoplasm of Ectonurites heavy enough to prevent them from phasing through matter or turning invisible. The enormous middle claw on their hands is capable of splitting the atoms of an object, allowing them to easily pass through walls like a phantom in pursuit of their prey.

Ectodenians hunt by using cryography, which allows them to detect the freezing temperatures that their prey's bodies give off. Their own body is ridged, bone-like scutes that enable them to sense sudden drops in the surrounding temperature, which also alerts them to the presence of prey.

Upon swallowing an Ectonurite - alive and whole - an Ectodenian's body becomes extremely dense and impossible to phase out of, trapping the helpless victim in its chest captivity where it is slowly consumed and digested. This process can take up to hours or even days to complete and the process has been described as extremely painful by the few victims that have managed to escape to tell the tale.

Specterminator is quite literally mindless and possesses little to no nervous tissue, or at least not enough for an Ectonurite to posses them. 

Weaknesses: Like their prey, Ectodenians are vulnerable to sunlight and explode into fine, white dust upon being exposed to a concentrated source. Unlike Ectonurites however, they are immune to the effects of fire, radiation, or lasers and can only be affected by pure sunlight.

Being quite literally mindless, Specterminator is easily tricked. Despite this, they are incredibly persistent and won't stop pursuing a target until they've either caught it or one of them has been defeated/killed.

Etymology: Specterminator is a portmanteau of the words "specter" and the Terminator franchise.

Trivia: The species name derives from the word "ectodomain", the domain of a membrane protein that extends into the extracelluar space (the space outside a cell).

Specterminator draws some inspiration the League of Legends champion, Thresh, as well as the Hellraiser franchise.

Ectodenians have been described as one of the galaxy's most disturbing life forms, due to their unsettling behaviors. This includes dragging their knuckles against the ground when they walk to produces a sound not unlike that of rattling chains - as if purposely alerting prey to its presence - and 'cackling' when it has finally captured a target. Perhaps the most alarming aspect of its behavior is that - despite its less than average intelligence - it seems to take a child-like glee in its hunting and in fact will relentlessly pursue Ectonurites whether or not it actually requires food.

Ectodenians have been witnessed actively entering settlements where Ectonurites live and wandering about in plain sight, often with recently caught victims stowed away in its chest cavity. As if that weren't enough, they have also been observed regurgitating their prey at times to either begin the hunt all over again or 'play' with them, which has been described as "a torture unlike anything the universe has ever seen".

These alarming behaviors have earned them the nickname "The Wandering Warden of Lost Souls".

Now I feel kind of bad for forcing ghostfreak to endure the agony of digestion.  The picture looks great though, thanks man.
