Kornephoros was a species of primate-Velociraptor hybrid artificially created by MTHR 248 on-board the colony ship, Ozymandias. Unlike other hybrids, Kornephoros's DNA consisted of genes taken from a variety of Catarrhine primates instead of just humans.
They are tough, intelligent and are able to use their hands. By restricting their evolution to a shape similar to that of primates, dinosaurs with human-like properties were devised. Using the genes of the Catarrhini tribe (humans, monkeys and apes), genetic manipulation was performed on the dinosaur DNA, altering muscles and skeletal framework. As a result, this modified species hunt systematically as a group, and exhibit some of the characteristics of the Catarrhini.[excerpt 1]
Kornephoros take the place of Algol and Rigel in as the standard enemy of the Energy Sector. Kornephoros can usually be killed by sending the player's WASP on them, however, avoiding them might be the best strategy to conserve ammo.
Kornephoros performs seven moves in the game.
