Reptires are parasitic reptilians that leap onto the cranium of a mercenary host and lays an egg into their brains.
This egg hatches and starts to slowly grow inside of the hosts brain until it is large enough to start devouring the host, leaving nothing but the features viewable on the outside.
These creatures avoid sunlight due to the fact that it will burn the hosts skin off revealing the scales underneath.
The creature will then slaughter a larger creature (Usually a heavydile or sniperdile) and lay eggs in there abdomen.
These eggs will hatch into the small impregnating variants and the cycle continues.
Due to the second stage after impregnation, there are many different variants, although only 3 have been
These creatures, although coming in many different colours, share the same goal: Find and impregnate a host.
Once the host is impregnated the creature will attempt to impregnate another host until it eventually dies.
