The Lambent Drone was a Drone which has endured a prolonged exposure to Imulsion. It is unknown how long the Lambent Drone existed but they were discovered within the first two days of Frost by the Serans while fighting the Locust Horde in Nexus.
Civil War and Hollow StormEdit
By 15 A.E, the Locust Horde was in a midst of a civil war between the Lambent and Horde. After the Lightmass Offensive by the Serans, the Locust Horde was forced to take drastic measures by launching a major offensive in hoping to destroy the last human city, Jacinto and flood the Hollow with ocean water in hopes of drowning the Lambent.
"Let me get this shit straight. The regular Locust are fighting the glowin' Locust? I thought they were all on the same side".
By Frost the Lambent were laying siege to the Nexus, the Horde's capital. Entering deep into the city, the Lambent was able to overcome many of the Horde's defenses. By chance the COG invaded the Inner Hollow and was caught in a potential three-way war. COG forces were able to penetrate into Nexus defenses and bypass dozens of dead Lambent Drones. But a group of Lambent Drones engage in a one-way small arms fire with Delta-One leading to a death of one of the drones. These events lead to the Sinking of Jacinto and the flooding of the Hollow, which wiped out all Hordes and Lambent forces that were still inside Nexus.
Eighteen months after the sinking of Jacinto, the Lambent Infection spread onto the surface, threatening the remnant of the feral Horde and Seran people. The Lambent Drones fought alongside Drudges and other Lambent creatures. Several Lambent Drones were seen fighting outside fort Anvil Gate. Some were killed by the retreating Delta Squad while the rest were killed by a blast from the Hammer of Dawn. During the Second Battle of Azura, thousands of Lambent, including Drones, attacked Azura in an attempt to stop Adam Fenix from firing his Imulsion Countermeasure Weapon. The Lambent forces failed and the weapon fired, destroying all Imulsion, Locust and Lambent, including all living Drones.
