Template:Infobox character An Aquamorph, also referred to as a Lake Alien and Aqua Alien, is an alleged species of Xenomorph that generally consists of Soldier and Drone ranks of the hive. Only one hive of the species is known to exist allegedly in a small lake in the state of New Hampshire, hence their nickname of Lake Aliens. The hive has one Queen including a nest of eggs which is located in the very deepest part of the lake, being about 20 ft underwater.
It is unknown how the species arrived on the planet Earth or adapted to breathing underwater. Although, the normal species of Xenomorph has been known to breath on both land and water, while an Aquamorph can only breath on land for an estimated 48 hours before dying.
The species of Aquamorphs has only one known hive which is located allegedly in a small lake in the state of New Hampshire. There is a Queen that has laid a nest of eggs in the center of the hive that spreads around the lake. When the Facehuggers hatch from their eggs, they hide underneath the sand and hide themselves. The Facehuggers have been known to hide beneath the sand of the lake's beach and attack unsuspecting swimmers. A Chestburster will eventually erupt from the chest of a Facehugger host and head for the lake soon after hatching and molt into a mature soldier or drone to act as one of the hive protectors of the Queen.
Strengths and weaknesses
The species has many advantages of living underwater and their most common motive of taking humans to bring to the hive is their habit of knocking over sailboats until they eventually fall over backwards. The Aquamorphs then take the humans back to the hive where they are impregnated by Facehuggers with Chestbursters. The species has only been known to use their violent techniques of taking humans to the hive in their soldier or drone stage while in the Facehugger stage, they simply hide underneath the sand.
The species does, however, have one weakness: due to spending their lives underwater, the Aquamorphs can only breath on land for an estimated 48 hours before needed to return to the lake to breath underwater. It has been rumored that if an Aquamorph is to thrive on land for longer than this, it will dry out and lose its slime-like substance which results in the creature eventually dying.
Soldiers and Drones
The Soldiers and Drones of the species serve the same purpose of any other Xenomorph hive. The Soldiers and Drones guard the Queen's nest which is located in the middle of the hive. They are spawned from humans who have been impregnated by Facehuggers. The Drones of the species are very similar to that of the Genetic Xenomorphs spawned from the Queen cloned along with Ellen Ripley on board the USM Auriga, only the Drones of the Aquamorph species resemble more of the Xenomorphs seen in the crossover film Alien vs. Predator.
One man who claims to work for the summer camp on the lake claims to have taken a picture of a "Aqua Alien" Soldier in the lake using an underwater camera while on a scuba diving trip in the lake (see above). The picture of the Soldier shows an alleged Aquamorph Soldier underwater with its mouth open; allegedly in a state of sleep taken before the picture of the Queen's "egg sack" on the same day. The picture of the Soldier resembles another image which could have been changed using Picasa 3 like that of one of the man's pictures of the Queen which was proven to be a hoax created using exactly that software. However, the picture of the Soldier is still being examined for authentication.
Much of the species' Queen is unknown. There have been no confirmed accounts of close encounters with the Queen as there have been with Facehuggers and Soldiers. One man who claims to be an employee at the summer camp on the lake claims to have taken two pictures of the Queen underwater while scuba diving in the lake in the summer of 2012. The picture of the alleged Queen was proven to be a hoax of another image edited by using Picasa 3 to appear as though it had been taken underwater. Another picture of the Queen the man claims is the Queen's "egg sack" which was taken on the same date of the picture of the alleged Aquamorph Soldier. Although the first picture of the Queen was proven to be a hoax, the picture of the Queen's egg sack is still being examined for authentication. The man who took the picture would only agree for the image to be published if his name was not revealed or used in publication, as well as the name of the summer camp.
The Queen of the species is said to never leave the hive located in the middle of the lake and is always with her nest guarding the eggs that she has laid along with her guards, the Soldiers and Drones that have been spawned from human attendants of the summer camp.
- There was a toy of a Xenomorph called the "Aqua Alien" released in the Alien Resurrection toyline which featured an aqua blue color and shark-like fins released before the alleged aquamorphs were sighted.
- It is unknown for sure if the Aquamorph species even exists in real life since the classic "Alien" creatures created by H. R. Giger were never real in the first place. However, one of the employees at a local summer camp that sits right next to the lake in New Hampshire claims to have taken a picture of an "Aqua Alien" Soldier with an underwater camera while scuba diving in the lake in the summer of 2012. The photographer claims to have also taken a picture of the Aquamorph Queen which was later revealed to be a hoax created using Picasa 3. The picture of the Soldier, however, is still being examined for authentication.
