The Races

This is a little description of the creatures you will be fighting in the nameless planet. There are ten known races. The first five.

Switchers: They look like humans, but they aren't zombies. Switchers are actually parasitic plants that take over any other alien species body. The plants grow at the side of the cheek and look like a rosebud that hasn't bloomed yet. They usually change the aliens main body into odd mutations.
Their main bodies are small and look like young children and there are boys and girls.
Their "body" portion has skin that looks cracked and rough. Their skin seems to bleed in small cracks, they have long nails, and usually all have dark black hair. They have this human child quality to them, but they aren't human.
In combat: These buggers are fast. You can barely see them with the naked eye as they swoop you up to be their next meal. They are immune to most stab wounds and can usually be killed by fire. After all they are parasitic plants. Though you can kill them fire, its pretty hard to trap one of these buggers and you have hypothesized that these plants may have the capability of mutating a humans body.

Colonel: Another pretty odd named creature. The colonel is one of the many alien beast you will fight. These are big mean and nasty. They have dark brown skin that has this dog skin quality to it. Their faces are long and narrow like a dogs face, but unlike a dogs face this face curves in creating this odd oval shape. They have nasty claws and nasty teeth. But what makes colonels so special is that on his abdomen he carries an odd mutation that looks like a gun on its abdomen. Though these creatures don't shoot bullets at you.
In combat: Though not as fast as the switches Colonels are pretty nasty and pretty fast. You better not allow them to cut you with their claws or their teeth. They can be killed by any normal means, but kill them fast before they release a heavy arsenal on you with their Gatling gun abdomen.

Divers: Don't the Divers sound so friendly. The divers are worm like creatures, they are thin, black, and have a peculiar swordfish look to them since they have a long sword coming from their front. These creatures live with the Colonel when they are a baby. They live in the gun and these creatures will tear you up.
They are two forms of the Divers.
Form 1-The thin, long, black worm with a sword as its front.
Form 2-Big, I mean real big its like a giant leech in those horror movies. They have poisonous bards alongside their body, their skin is black with this thick acidic ooze coming off it. If you were able to walk up to it you would see its smooth and shiny skin is not fleshy, but scaly.
In combat:
Form 1-They live in the Colonel's gun, but when they are shot out of the gun they make a quick dash to whatever body they can find. If they have hit the target the Colonel wanted to hit, they just bury themselves in.
These are quick eaters and in thirty seconds your body will be bone dry and these things will go into their adult stage.
Form 2-Is the adult stage and these buggers are nasty. They have poisonous bards, which they can shoot out at people. Better be quick when these bards are shot, the bards can quickly grow back.
Their ooze that covers their body is acidic so don't get to close.
But the good news is that they can die by normal means. Just hit them in the nerve tendril that comes out when the bard comes out.

Juicers: No they don't want to make you some fresh morning orange juice. The Juicers may be the worse of them all.
They are skinny with a rusty red color skin and four arms, yes four arms.Their skin has this leather look to them and their faces are this odd mutated pointed oval shape, they have four eyes on their face. Like Marge Simpson they have this tower on top of their head, unlike Marge its not blue and its not exactly bush shaped. Its another flower bud looking tower and when the Juicers open this strange bud you see many little teeth, and a nice little razor in the middle. You may not want to know what happens next.
In combat: You'll never know when these buggers are here until the last minute. And the last minute may be when they grab you with their strong four arms. They don't take bullets very well, their skin is so tough it doesn't bother them.
You'll have to find another means to kill them. And no these creatures don't just hold you until you die together, they open their heads and begin to spin the razors. And like a blender these guys pick you up and allow you to have a ride on their blades.

Wiggles:These guys are probably the gross of the gross. They are really tall and have long thin wiry bodies. They are this licorice red color and really big round heads. They have one eye like a cyclops and seem to walk almost like a slinky.
In combat: You know how bees work, they sting you and die. Well the Wiggles are probably the weakest beast, they walk up to you throw up on you and die. Just like that.
But don't just that vomit, it will seep quickly into your pours and becomes an attraction to other aliens. Basically a vomit tracker.
