Deacons

The Deacon features in Ridley Scott’s 2012 film Prometheus. The Deacon is an extraterrestrial creature that evolved from the impregnation of the Last Engineer by the Trilobite, a large, octopus-like alien creature. The Deacon grew inside the Last Engineer and then burst through the Engineer’s chest, ripping it apart. Like all Xenomorphs, the Deacon’s characteristics are dependent on the host organism. The Deacon has a sharp cone pointed head, plantigrade legs and pale blue skin. It has two sets of jaws. It is incredibly strong and fast which makes it a dangerous predator.

Deacons have an upright height between 8’–10’ (2.44–3.05 m), but are often seen crouching or bent over.

Hammerpedes
Size comparison drawings of Hammerpedes comparing the heights of other related characters from the Alien franchise

The Hammerpede is an extraterrestrial being. When the crew of USCSS Prometheus discovered a temple on the moon LV-233, they disturbed a container of chemical A0-3959X.91 – 15, which then leaked and infected several worms. The worms mutated into large, serpent like creatures with pale grey skin. Hammerpedes have a distinctive sharp toothed mouthed hidden under crested skin, which can unfold at will. They have superior strength, move at lightning speed, and can spit acid. They can regenerate themselves in a matter of seconds, making them incredibly difficult to destroy.

Hammerpedes have upright heights between 2’–3’ (61–91.4 cm) and overall body lengths between 4’–5’ (1.22–1.52 m).

Ovomorphs
Scaled height comparison illustrations of Ovomorphs in relation to other creatures in the Alien universe

Ovomorphs, are the egg-like vessels that enclose a Facehugger, an alien species, and are the first stage of the life cycle of the species Xenomorph XX121 featured in the Alien movie franchise. Physically, Ovomorphs have a leather-like brown-black exterior surface. Ovomorphs are highly durable and their own individual organism. Ovomorphs are laid by a Queen, but can also be produced through the transformation of a captured victim. Ovomorphs are considered lifeless by some, but they can detect when a potential host is approaching them. Each Ovomorph contains 1 Facehugger, but some have been known to carry up to 4.

Ovomorphs have a typical height of 3’3” (100 cm) and diameter of 30” (76.2 cm).

Facehuggers
Scaled height comparison illustrations of Facehuggers in relation to other creatures in the Alien universe

A Facehugger is the second life stage of the Xenomorph, an extraterrestrial creature that finds its way onto the ship Nostromo. The Facehugger evolves from an Ovomorph, which waits until a host organism is sensed nearby. It attaches itself to the host, and implants a Chestburster, which later bursts out of the host’s chest and develops to a fully formed Xenomorph. The Facehuggers spit acid in order to gain access to a host, making them vulnerable for implantation. After implantation occurs, a Facehugger’s purpose is complete, and they die.

Facehuggers have an upright height of 2’9” (83.8 cm), overall length of 4’11” (149.8 cm), and open width of 2’4” (71.1 cm).
