- "People are quick to project human features onto things they don't understand. The Typhon kill us without hesitation. But it's not because they're evil. It's because they can't do otherwise."

Early History Edit
The Typhons were discovered on Vorona I satellite launched by Soviets in 1958. The satellite was orbiting moon until the Soviets lost communication with it. They then send manned mission to investigate. The repair team didn't find any external issues so Soviet leadership ordered the cosmonauts breach the satellite. In the moments that followed, the cosmonauts encountered a non-terrestrial life form, which killed all members of the mission. After two years of silence, the Soviets contacted the US and pleaded for help with containing the threat. Kennedy agreed and in 1963, the US-Soviet collaboration resulted in Kletka program. A permanent installation was built to contain the non-terrestrials. After failed Kennedy assassination, US seize control of the program and started to study the non-terrestrials, but were unable to harness their enigmatic abilities for military or commercial applications. After a containment failure lead to the death of entire research team, the US abandoned the station. Eventually Transtar corporation secured the derelict station and transformed it into Talos-1, a cutting edge innovation center. In just five short years, the team aboard Talos-1, achieved a greater understanding of Typhon organism and started to apply their research to humans.
Prey (2017) Edit
During the events of Prey (2017), Typhons manage to breach the containment and overrun the station, killing most of the crew in the process.
