Lavan species abound within Boromite enclaves, kept, bred, and made use of as part of mining operations and to some extent simply as pets. Lavan creatures are ﬁtted with technological implants that allow the Boromites to monitor them and control them to a degree...
Lavan hatchlings are the first hatch stage of the Lavan creature. As the hatchling grows it moults its stony exterior shell and from it emerges a new, larger and sometimes quite different secondary stage juvenile. Most hatchlings mature into lavamites, moulting and shedding their outer shell several times during the process. Some just keep growing and gradually become creatures of vast size and awesome appearance. Hatchlings are tiny when they first emerge but quickly expand until they are ready for their first moult. This means hatchlings can be various sizes all mixed up together.
Quite how many make a swarm is anyone’s guess and depends upon the size and maturity of the hatchlings as much as anything. As mere babies hatchlings have a lower resist (Res) than adult lavamites, but what they otherwise lack as individuals they make up for in terms of sheer mass.
