Vortigaunt from halflife is hotter than weird vampire lady (/r/ladydimitrescu)

Vorticock size is 10 inches


Vortigaunts are highly intelligent and social creatures. Throughout the series, they can often be seen in pairs or groups, and information is spread among them through low grade telepathy.[\[6\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-HL2.2com-6) In appearance, a Vortigaunt is roughly humanoid with two legs and two arms with an additional arm protruding from its chest. This extra vestigial limb is a physical trait also found in other bipedal, sapient species from [Xen](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Xen), including the [Alien Grunt](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Alien_Grunt) and the [Nihilanth](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Nihilanth). Vortigaunts have [mottled](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mottle) green-brown skin, sharp teeth, and clawed hands. They have a slightly hunched posture, and their faces are dominated by a large, single eye with a maroon [sclera](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sclera) and a [heterochromic](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heterochromia) red-yellow iris with a yellow pupil surrounded by five smaller eyes in the original game and only three in the sequel. They have two noses on each side of their head visible as small tubes.[\[a\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-7) They were given a smoother, shinier, and slug-like appearance in [*Episode Two*](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Half-Life_2:_Episode_Two).[\[b\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-8) In [*Half-Life: Alyx*](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Half-Life:_Alyx), they have rough skin, darker eyes, three fingers on each hand (as opposed to two in previous games), and three-toed feet (unlike the previous hoof-like appearance).

Brief glimpses into the Vortigaunt culture can be gained from their occasional spoken monologues. Based on their comments, it seems that the species has endured slavery for many generations,[\[7\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-9) and enforced servitude appears to have formed the bedrock of Vortigaunt history and culture up to the events of the first *Half-Life*. They have many traditions, including an apparent oral tradition of passing down poetry,[\[8\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-10) songs,[\[9\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-11) and philosophical statements[\[10\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-12) from generation to generation. Unlike other aliens, they don’t eat human corpses. However, they demonstrate themselves as meat eaters as they are seen cooking [Headcrabs](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Headcrab) in *Half-Life 2*, first in a cave over a fire and later in a kitchen at [Black Mesa East](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Black_Mesa_East), and again in *Half-Life: Alyx* with [Gary](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Gary) prominently declaring them as a form of “sustenance.”

In *Half-Life 2*, Vortigaunts now demonstrate the ability to vocalize in human languages. However, their use of English is slightly strange, as they often use verbose sentence structures and cryptic phrasings. Vortigaunts also tend to refer to characters by adding the definite article “the” before their name, such as “the [Freeman](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Gordon_Freeman)” or “the [Alyx Vance](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Alyx_Vance).” Vortigaunts usually refer to themselves in the third person.

Vortigaunts possess their own native form of vocal communication which is referred to as [Vortigese](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigese). This method of speaking is described as “flux shifting” and can be heard in rare instances, such as their battle cries during combat or when two Vortigaunts are engaged in conversation. According to the Vortigaunts, flux shifting cannot be understood by “those whose Vortal inputs are impaired.”[\[11\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-HL2-13)

Vortigaunts believe in a binding life-force which they call the “Vortessence.”[\[12\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-14) While the exact nature of this concept is left unclear, the Vortigaunts describe it as the fabric of the universe which connects everything living.[\[13\]](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Vortigaunt#cite_note-15) When Alyx is resuscitated in *Episode Two*, the Vortigaunts remark that, while they were the ones who physically healed her mortal wounds, it was Gordon who retrieved her Vortessence. In [*Half-Life: Alyx*](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Half-Life:_Alyx), the formerly imprisoned Vortigaunt [Gary](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Gary) mentions that the [Combine](https://combineoverwiki.net/wiki/Combine) had drilled into his brain to forcefully sever his connection from the Vortessence. This procedure has broken his telepathic communication with other Vortigaunts and impaired his perception of time, leaving him unable to distinguish which events have already occured and what is still yet to happen.
