SGG Chapter 63: NWB New Wraith BreedsThe growing number of new Wraith casts and classes, as well as overall new structures of buildings and vehicles was categorized by the Genii as so called New Wraith Breeds (NWB; Novus Irae Genus) overall and could come in various shapes and forms. Not all still existing hives had all of them and some clearly copied from one another, leading to similar models and ideas with varying results. While some Spiculum Wraith had become so called Super-Warriors capable to also shoot bone-like darts out of their feeding holes as a form of protection, as well as long-range attack of pray and enemy alike, others found different means to serve their hive. So called Parasitus Wraith managed to assault their enemies with a small parasite, part of their body that directly linked them to the Wraith Hive Mind and allowed them to puppet control them, so they would no longer run, hide, or fight them, not even during culling. While earliest models still were in need of connecting the parasite to themselves as well as the targets nervous system trough a sort of nerve-tentacle, later models could use it like telepathic Wraith mind linking from a distance once the small parasite hit the target and connected with itís nervous system, making them a whole new danger of infiltration and taking over. Some even hid themselves to then sneakily attack whole Genii patrols or groups at once and lead them back to were other Wraith were hiding and waiting. Unlike the tentacle ones that could partly burrow a few meters trough the ground and then launch and connect to unsuspected victims, the longer-range spike-parasite shooting ones needed a more direct line of sight and attack. At the same time the neural link with the Wraith Hive even worked when the original Wraith was killed of, but the parasite still inside the host, meaning that the Genii soon tested if their soldiers could infiltrate the hive link, by implementing some of this creatures to their nervous system willingly and that way retrieve vital intelligence about the Wraith enemies of various rivaling Hives. Doing so wasnít without danger, as only the strongest minds could resist the calling of the Hive and not be overpowered by his mental call and suggestions themselves. Other new types of Wraith were Raptum, which came in two forms, one more tank like, burrowed in the ground and one flying one like a Dart. Both were piloted and could grab unsuspected victims with their tentacles, up to ten in total and drain their life energy simultaneously, to later give it to Wraith who would feed upon it, feed their pilot directly, or simply take the Culling target with them to the hideout or location were the rest of their Hive were gathered. Because of that they were called Culler Upductors by the Genii Confederation and itís Military.Quit bulky vehicles, that like Darts could take a couple of shots and actually would use captured individuals as living shields, later versions of them would be upgraded to have the Wraith transport technology inside their tentacle-like insect claws or legs to take even more people with them even faster. Their Wraith Dart likey flying version was called the Capto Wraith and much more agile, faster and dangerous then the Darts or Raptum themselves. While as large as a Dart it could fly and use itís tentacles and beams to abduct whole villages and small towns in an instant to quickly leave with them for Culling by Wraith waiting elsewhere, often so fast the Genii were unable to even react in such speed. Another new type of Wraith unit were the Cepitus, similar to Darts and artillery ships of the Wraith, but serving more like a bomber role like the Tauíri used them or even the Goaíuld in Alíkesh. Like the bigger long-range artillery ship they looked more manta-ray-like, even if they were much smaller and could fire Wraith canon-like energy out of what Genii soldiers often referred to as their forward mouth. They were a clear answer of the Wraith to heavily fortified underground bunker positions of the Genii Confederation, to crack them open and engage the humans inside to cull them. At the same time they had so thick muscle, bone and outer skin armor, that regular Genii anti-air weapons beside rockets had quit a hard time damaging them, let alone bringing them down without own heavy air support by Genii fighters, bombers and even (Traveler) space ships of their own. The Genii assumption was partly right as the Wraith, much like their larger artillery-ships also used it to fight other Cruiser and Hive Ships of rivaling Wraith Hives.
