Sheb-Teth is a kind of "xenomorph god" that many xenomorph cults worship. While most cults think of Sheb-Teth as an actual, material being, the Brotherhood of Obsidian thinks of Sheb-Teth as the hive mind that connects all xenomorphs. They claim it is composed of the memories and personalities of everyone and everything that ever hosted a chestburster, all merged into a grand, supreme consciousness. The term "consciousness" is used very loosely; the BoO asserts that Sheb-Teth and all xenomorphs use their unconscious minds to preform the tasks that are usually preformed by the conscious mind, making them philosophical zombies.
