Akatas are strange, alien creatures that dwell in a larval state inside of asteroids. When the larvae come into contact with an atmosphere, the creatures quickly spawn into large, deadly monsters.

Once grown, Akatas appear as hairless creatures with shimmering, flourescent bodies, large black eyes, and thin bony appendages.

Fully grown, a typical akata stands 3-1/2 feet tall and weighs up to 400 pounds.

It is believed that Akatas hail from a strange, distant planet that long ago succumbed to a cataclysmic end. Countless Akatas clung to fragments of the dead planet, entering hibernation and riding these asteroids until they eventually crashed upon a new planet.

These creatures cocoon themselves to protected them from the impact, bit soon after contact with an atmosphere, the creatures awaken and immediately seek out suitable hosts to spawn their young.

Any human bitten by one of these creatures has the chance of being infected, and transforming into a Void Zombie within 4-8 hours.

Left un-attended, an Akata scourge can quickly grow into a significant threat.
