Theos are a type of animal found in Aeternis.
Background[edit | edit source]
Theos appear to be velociraptors mutated by exposure to grailstone, retaining their eyes and pigmentation. Exposure additionally resulted in their skin evolving the chameleon-like ability to change colour to match the surrounding brickwork. Thus they blend into the background, waiting for prey to come past them – then they attack suddenly and violently, seemingly coming from nowhere.
This method of attack makes them extremely dangerous to a player, for the MS-2 helmet relies primarily on movement for detection, and thus there is no prior warning of their presence. A keen-eyed player will sometimes be able to see them in advance however, lying flush and motionless against a wall, and will easily see them off with a shot or two. The player must therefore learn not just to rely on technology, but use their eyes as well. An adult Theo stands about two metres high. They occur on Levels One, Two and Three and rely on surprise and speed for the kill.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- Theos can pack a punch, but they are only encountered two times: Once in the theo chamber (where it can be crushed or released, depending on which pillar you choose) and then in the Grail hallway, sleeping. They take two shots to put down.
