|Scarface, formerly a dishonored unblooded predator|
|Subordinate To:||Young Blood|
|Next Rank:||Young Blood|
Unblooded Predators are usually young inexperienced hunters that fall behind even a Young Blood in rank. They are not yet experienced enough to participate in a Xenomorph Hunt. That is, in fact, forbidden according to AVP: Prey.
GeneralEditUnblooded are denied certain privileges that other, higher-ranked predators have. They are limited to a certain amount of weapons and, if the Youngbloods are anything to go by, those weapons lack the acid-resistance generally found in hunting tools. They also cannot challenge anyone to a death-match, only claw-challenges.
Aliens vs. Predator: Prey shows the unblooded predators as violent, restless, formless and eager, even describing them as "raw" and "unseasoned", a stark contrast to the silent, methodical hunters usually seen.
Female hunters being uncommon, most unblooded are male and train in groups of about 15 or 20. However, groups of 40 sometimes occur.
Promotion to Young BloodEditBlooded rank or higher. The neophyte Predator is expected to attack the seasoned predator armed with nothing but their bare hands, Cloak, Bio-Mask, and Wrist Blades. Presumably, they are to keep training until their teacher is satisfied with their progress. Not all Unblooded Predators make it out of this stage alive; training can be deadly to unqualified and inexperienced youngsters and it is implied that a teacher who feels their charge is not improving can kill the student with impunity. After hand-to-hand training is complete, Unblooded hunters are transported, in groups of 12 to 40, to planets which are intentionally seeded with Xenomorphs. Given an assortment of armaments which they must fight over, they follow the lead of a Blooded or Higher ranked predator, usually a Clan Leader, and become blooded Predators.
Falling from GraceEdit
Not all Unblooded Predators are young and inexperienced. If a Predator of high rank humiliates itself seriously enough to warrant a punishment less extreme than death, they will be exiled instead for up to century, perhaps longer. Likely at the discretion of the Clan Leader, this Predator will be allowed to return to the Clan but will have to atone for the mistakes of its past. When they return, they are demoted, stripped of their honor and equipment, and given the tools of an inexperienced hunter, expected to redeem themselves by starting all over again.
According to Concrete Jungle, inexperienced hunters are allotted the following hunting tools:
Notable Unblooded PredatorsEdit
- Scarface was a high ranked predator that was demoted to an unblooded predator for revealing the existence of it's kind to it's prey and leaving it's technology for them to dissect.
- Tichinde was an unblooded predator who turned Bad Blood as soon as he wasn't supervised.
- Shorty was an unusually small Yautja who was rivals with Machiko Noguchi.
- An unblooded warrior rank has never been seen.
- The wrist blades provided for an unblooded are far shorter than one most other Predators. All other ranks tend to have far more impressive blades, indicating their higher position.
