Rigel is the larval stage of a human-Giganotosaurus hybrid created artificially by MTHR 248, the AI custodian of the U.N. Ozymandias. They were created as one of numerous efforts to create a replacement to the ship's deceased human crew resistant to cosmic radiation.
Physical description Edit
Rigel were part a complex life cycle. An organism known as the Rigel Domain was the mother of the species. Rigel, the larvae, then grew up to the adult Cebalrai. As larvae, Rigel had rather simplistic bodies, lacking working legs with the only two limbs being largely useless. The species was however capable of consuming significant amounts of meat, and packs of Rigel are known to have felled and eaten an Australis from the inside. Rigel did not have any pack instinct; though they regularly attacked in groups this was instead due to the species' acute senses leading dozens to the prey.[excerpt 1]
- It is named after the star Rigel, otherwise known as Beta Orionis.
- Rigel's manner of killing Australis is similar to the hunting method used by the real-life parasitic fish of the Amazon River called the Candiru-Acù.

"肉体の剛性的に究極の生物といえるゲバルライの幼生。 一匹一匹はさほど強くないが、 一度のふ化で生まれる数百の幼生が、 数を頼りに獲物を襲う。 群れで狩りを行うわけではないが、 鋭な感覚器官で獲物を感知し、 一斉に襲いかかる習生を持つ。"
