Prey (2017)

Mimic also known as Typhon Cacoplasmus by its scientific name is a hostile Typhon encountered on Talos-1 during Prey (2017).

Overview Edit

Mimic is small, arachnid Typhon, which can camouflage itself to look like ordinary objects in the environment be it office chair or garbage can. Mimics are very agile, capable to quickly jump from wall to wall. They kill their victims by tightly wrapping its appendages around the body and then ramming one of the appendages down the victim's throat, rapidly devouring all of their flesh and then using said biomass to undergo fission, splitting into four new Mimics. Morgan can obtain Mimics mimicking power through neuromods.

Design Edit

Mimic looks like four legged arachnid, made entirely of black smoke-like substance.

Strategy Edit

The Mimic's strategy revolves around ambush and strength in numbers, as the most numerous type of Typhon organism it's not uncommon to find several Mimic's in a single area. In the absence of a viable target they prefer to assume the form of a inanimate object for the purpose of lying in wait for one to appear. The first thing that Morgan needs to remember is that Mimics can only assume the form of a object that is already present, so if they see more than one of the same object in a odd place then their best option is to try to eliminate both objects at once.

The Mimic will attempt to scare Morgan, causing them to waste valuable ammunition or stamina in a panic but if they're able to remain calm then they aren't much of a threat. Mimic's require a living organism to reproduce, so if one such organism is nearby then it might be best to eliminate that organism first, or at the very least keep any Mimics in the area away from them, in order to prevent them from being able to reproduce.

Trivia Edit

  • Mimic is the first Typhon discovered by humans.
  • Mimic has some resemblance to Mimics from Edge of Tomorrow (2014).
  • Mimics resemble headcrabs from the Half-Life series.
