Ambassador - Hydra
Tyrannicus Exemplum Annexus
The Tyrannicus Exemplum Annexus made its first appearance during the fights for Galamathar VI, though it is highly douptfull that imperial intelligence ever actually "saw" this creature.
The Hive Mind of Hive Fleet Hydra originally created this specimen for fast information transfer to the Nornqueens. These informations are of biological origin. DNA and memory of fallen enemies are broadcasted via synapse to the hive ships.
This seems to skip the normal progress of harvesting the biomass, but enables the Fleet and the Nornqueen to react faster to possible threats and use the DNA of their enemies for their advantage.
In the battle for Galamthar VI this specimen gained a new name. The Members of the wide spread Genestealer Cults embraced their apperance and named the "Ambassadors". Members that carried important strategic informations were brought forth, for the Ambassadors to embrace their knowlegde and direct it to the fleet.
This unique interaction between Cults and Tyranids seems to be an reaction to the "burned earth" policy the Imperial Guard is fighting the Tyrannic Invasions with. The Tyranids have learned that infiltration and disorder can be more efficent than a full assault and that exisiting Cults often are faster successfull in their task than the mathematical possibility that a single Genestealer is successfull.
