Lore & Information about races within the multiverse will go here.

Grineer
Image
Scorpions are female Grineer units that wield Machetes. Notorious for their brutality with said Machetes, they also possess grappling hooks that they can use to knock down enemies and drag them. The fast hooks, knockdowns and possibility of continuous hooks by multiple Scorpions can make them a highly deadly adversary, especially when backed up by other units.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Butchers are issued with single "Cleavers". Looks just like the Machete, down to the superheated edge. They lack the armor and ranged firepower other Grineer units possess, leaving them somewhat more vulnerable. In exchange, they possess quick movement and significant damage with their Cleavers. In the split-second when a Butcher has wound up his attack, a dodge or block may be possible.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Flameblades are similar to Butchers in combat style and visually identical to them except for their weapon. They have the ability to teleport short distances, and their batons deal Heat damage.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Powerfists are similar to Butchers, but use a single "Furax" instead. Like Flameblades, they tend to take cover until an enemy is close, which can allow them to launch ambushes. This is further aided by their fast sprint speed. Upon closing on enemies, Powerfists will utilize power strikes to charge their melee and inflict massive damage, and then follow it up with a combo of faster attacks. Powerfists have a much longer charge time than Butchers, but after their long charge they will attack like normal.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Shield Lancers are defensive Grineer soldiers that carry large shields in one hand and "Viper" machine pistols in the other. Tactics include slowly pressing forward while firing over their shields. Nearby Grineer can and often will use them as mobile cover to variable effectiveness. Shield Lancers will also use their shields as impromptu battering rams to knock enemies off their feet, often doing so when one comes too close. Shield Lancers often will not charge enemies while providing cover for allies, but will charge when the units behind them die, or move away.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Ballistas are female Grineer soldiers that utilize a "Vulkar" for long range support. While they have a slower fire rate than other Grineer, Ballistas considerably deal more damage and are smaller targets.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Lancers are the most basic and prevalent form of Grineer infantry. They wield "Grakatas" (Assault Rifles) and occasionally possess Plasma Grenades. Although mostly inaccurate with their grenade throws, they can easily down an enemy caught in the blast. Their armor is blue-green in color.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Seekers are tactical Grineer units with yellow-green armor and darker markings. Aside from using "Kraken" pistols, they will also deploy "Latchers". Upgraded durability above regular Grineer Lancers, these can be versatile opponents.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Heavy Gunners are cybernetically-enhanced female Grineer heavy infantry armed with Gorgon machine-guns. Identified by their taller, thinner frame and female voice, Heavy Gunners are capable of laying down suppressing fire to support their teammates. If left unchecked, they can tear through enemies' shields and health very quickly, especially on enemies with lighter armor.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[FILE PHOTO UNAVAILABLE]
Scorches are Grineer soldiers with red and yellow armor. Scorches wield an "Ignis" (Flamethrower), dealing tremendous continuous damage in short range as long as the victim is in reach. They can deal continuous damage and also set the victim on fire, making them incredibly lethal in a successful ambush or when working with units such as Scorpions and Rollers that can inhibit enemy movement.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Hellions are mid-armored Grineer units which are equipped with personal jet-packs that allow them to jet-jump across terrain quickly, as well as hover high in the air, giving them mobility even greater than that of light units.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[FILE PHOTO UNAVAILABLE]
Eviscerators are Grineer soldiers with stronger armor and sturdier constitutions than the regular Lancers. The Eviscerator is equipped with a "Miter", a weapon that fires large sawblade projectiles, (acting much like the Chakram when thrown). The sawblades bounce off surfaces and can be blocked and deflected by melee swings, being destroyed after bouncing a certain amount of times.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Commanders have much greater constitutions than regular Lancers. They also possess an ability to Switch Teleport a targeted victim; often, a Commander will teleport the victim into the middle of a group of Grineer, causing major disorientation and imminent death in the process. A Commander's Switch Teleport can work through walls and doors and has a long stun duration.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ING:
We arent -exactly- sure of how their creation came to be, but we know its directly related to what something called "The Phazon Mother" did to Aether in conjunction with an action the planets inhabitants did with themselves. The ING were trapped in the outer regions of space, unable to expand from that region because of downed 'Relay Networks' created by ancient cetrans. They were closed down for this very reason. They have a 'hive mind' mentality and feed off the spirutal heart of others.
When the Dimensional Warriors were lost in space, we came across these 'relay networks,' activating them to jump around. In doing so, we unwittingly opened the gateway for the ING to travel into other regions of space.
Their wish is expansion; negotiation with the ING is difficult as their very existence corrupts and destroys our own. While not their fault, it is impossible to come to true terms.
Status: Currently neutral and possibly an ally; however, easily an enemy at any moment of disagreement. (See Mission Lists)
X Parasite
The X-Parasite is considered one of the most dangerous creatures in the galaxy. Its native home world is the planet SR-388, in which it has molded its own survivability to withstand extreme temperatures and near-void conditions. Apparently, it accomplishes this task via the analysis of DNA...and generally this consumes the host in the process, although an incomplete analysis has also proven possible via simple observation. It spreads at any and all expense, and is thus considered malevolent, though this can simply be its nature.

Its only known predator is the Metroid, a creature engineered by the Chozo with recombinant DNA that the X-Parasite cannot assimilate.
