The Awakened

An Awakened would have been considered a walking nightmare by a human outsider, while for the Cult they are considered gently blessed by the Dragons. Speeding into the fray on distorted extended or unnaturally muscled legs, with enemy blows and projectiles deflected by rock-hard chitin plates bursting from underneath their skins, the Awakened rip apart flesh with tentacles and claws and tear away armor plates as if they were plastic or paper. The Awakened are the true shock unit of the Cult forces, and presence thereof on a surface of a planet or in a settlement signifies either a pending or recent military campaign, or presence of extremely hostile local wildlife that cannot be pacified by less savage means. Awakened rarely live more than several years after the metamorphosis, due to their bodies slowly eroding from excessive strains of mutation.
