The Hungries are combat light operatives. They belong to a bastard race
found by the EI on some forgotten planet. The difference between Gakis
and Pretas is in the presence of the male, a symbiont parasite hosted at
the base of the skull. This male-symbiont, in order to feed itself,
disrupts the body biochemistry of the female-host (Gaki), accelerating
neuronal connections and giving her a greater intelligence. The
resulting being is a Preta that, even though it will not be completely
rational, will have an improved learning capacity and a greater ability
to manipulate objects. The EI trains them with a trial-reward system,
stimulating artificially their sensations of hunger. That is the reason
for their military designation inside the Combined Army as "The
Hungries". The humans met them on Paradiso and called them Gakis and
Pretas, cannibal phantoms in Japanese and Hindi, for the fierceness of
their attacks and because they like to move in packs. Their main
military use is deterrence and the rupturing of enemy lines. Experience
has taught human troops that it is not wise to allow them to get too
close. The Hungries are trained to be more insidious than intelligent.
They carry close combat weapons as modified arm-claws, and the Pretas,
thanks to the presence of the male-symbiont, can expulse wide sprays of
small calcareous excrescences at great speed with the efficacy of a
shrapnel weapon. The Pretas also posses the capacity to exude globules
loaded with neurotoxins called Bio-mines, an evolutionary advantage
developed to protect their egg laying places. The Hungries prefer to
move in groups, following random patterns simultaneously to provide more
possibilities for victory. They are worse than they appear, the speed
and determination of their attacks turning them into relentless and
terrifying enemies. As is commonly aid about them, they will never
renounce to their pound of flesh.
