- "The Aebea nest taught me to repress the pheromonic bond; I can hold it for a little while."
- ―Vector Hyllus
Aebea was a Killik hive. They were about a meter long, and were used during the Swarm War as airborne fighters. During the Cold War, the Human Joiner Vector Hyllus was taught by the Aebea how to suppress the pheromonic Joiner bond, allowing him to temporarily separate himself from the Colony hivemind.
