An Egyptian figthing off An "Ant" The Ants were a race of ant-like robots. Michael encountered them in the 30th century, Matt Sears encountered them in Egypt and Katerina encountered them in post-Revolutionary France. They used their pincers, claws, & hid weapons like blades and guns in themselves when attacking. Their antennae could pick up command signals. They also had sharp and/or hard spines running along their arms for protection. They were intelligent scavengers linked in some way to The Ship. They were attracted to rifts in space/time, and had Michael captured in order to gain information.
They possibly originated from Jovoy and where machines built by the Authority because several were in encountered in Brano & Maria's adventure with the Callas.
