Personally, I don't trust the typo in skraeling's quote.
Then you must not trust the typo in the game either.

goran wrote:Ok let us be reasonable. Pfhor are not insects and pfhor are not humans. They are what they are. If we look at the pfhor species as a whole many of them are human like, but there are also other qualities to them, qualities I refer to as insect-like.
Pfhor are found in eggs as we see in M1. The alien inside is most similar to a fighter among the pfhor we know of. Many species on earth lay eggs. Among them are fish, birds, and insects.
Pfhor got three or more eyes and none of them got pupils. Insects got eyes like these.
Pfhor blood is for the most part yellow. Insects got yellow blood.
Many pfhor species have an insect like look. Wasps, lookers, m1_hunters, the unreleased hound (found together with hunter in m1 manual), the spider (also unreleased).
Durandal and Tycho both made comments on pfhor+bugs in infinity.
I hope you understand why I have come to think of them as being inspired by insects.
I do not know what advice I could give to Envy that would be most helpful. As it is, his pfhor got too much of a human physique and not at all the light-weight grim look of marathon pfhor. His skin is too loose. Many limbs are too thick. The head lacks the "skull look". I still think insects is the right approach for inspiration. How to make the thin look work. Look tough and evil, yet thin.

According to the page, J. Reginald Dujour of Bungie points out that the Pfhor eggs are in fact "incubation bubbles". The implication here is that they are not eggs. Otherwise why not call them Pfhor eggs? As for why they are incubating and to what extent, that's another mystery. Maybe these bubbles are what they put injured Pfhor into to heal them. Or maybe they're incubation pods for clones that are genetically manufactured to quickly increase their number of soldiers.
