The Aludran Reptiloids are a reoccuring species encountered throughout the Serious Sam series.
Overview[edit | edit source]
Aludran Reptiloids are a primitive race of large, four-armed reptilian creatures from the Aludran System, of Alpha Canis Majoris. They evolved from a strange hexapodal branch of reptiles, which has resulted in them having four arms. Their evolutionary origins also provided them with tough scales, which can enable them to sustain a certain amount of damage in a firefight.
Their skin color varies on the type of Reptiloid; the common species has greenish skin, male Highlanders have brown skin, and the females have greyish skin.
Variants[edit | edit source]
On their home planet, many species or subspecies of Reptiloids are known to exist, such as the Common Aludran Reptiloid, which is by the far the most common variant encountered in the series. The common variant inhabits plains, while the larger variants, the Highlander Aludran Reptiloids, are found in more mountaineous areas. The female Highlanders, known as the Highlander's Bride, is the largest known Reptiloid, and is far more aggressve than the males due to their all year-round PMS.
Behavior and skills[edit | edit source]
All species of Aludran Reptiloids have the ability to summon magic fireballs. This ability was given to them by Mental in exchange for joining his army. Their projectiles have homing abilites, but they can be shot down mid-air by gunfire or explosivse. They will launch these projectiles at a target from medium to far range, though if the target gets too close to them, the Reptiloid will whack them with one of their arms.
A larger version of the Common Aludran Reptiloid, Tetrachoke the Wizard, has telekinetic powers, which enables him to use objects within the environment around him against his target. He can also cast multiple green fireballs in succession, both homing and non-homing ones.
Technology[edit | edit source]
Despite their appearance, Reptiloids are not very intelligent creatures, much like many other creatures included as part of Mental's forces. Thus, it is not known if they have advanced technology, or if they are just part of the wildlife found on their planet.
