A bio-engineered deadly bacteria created by The Combine, he is the initial carrier of the Z-Kron virus, which is hidden within his bacterial genes.

Because she must destroy infected BioWarriors as often as she does bacteria and viruses, her appearance is greeted not with celebration by her allies, but fear and respect.
Once, she was just a harmless eColi bacteria named Bacter. Her tribe was peaceful, seeking only a home in which to grow and strive—and thought they’d found paradise upon first entering the BioCosmic Universe through a cut in Alex’s hand. When the Macrophages wiped them out, Bacter barely escaped—and was found by Raze, who used Conjugation to mutate her into something far more menacing to the health of the BioCosmos. Now, she’s bigger, stronger, and can use her spiked talons and poisonous spikes to tear apart BioWarriors. She has a special hatred for Scathe.
