An adult was an animalistic member of Species M-113, also known as salt vampires. The adult was a mature, combat-ready creature and represented the second-lowest and common rank in their hierarchy. (STO - "Season 7: New Romulus" mission: "Mine Trap")
Appearance and specificationsEdit
The adult did not wear clothing. Its hunched but humanoid body was covered in brown fur, leaving the face and extremities exposed. These parts were scaly and white-skinned. Long, wavy hair extended from the scalp. The adult resembled a hatchling, which was white-furred. (STO - "Season 7: New Romulus" mission: "Mine Trap")
In combat, adults did not carry weapons and instead relied on their claws for melee attacks. For ranged attacks, they weakened their prey by putting them in a hypnotic hold, and draining them of salt. The adult was stronger than the hatchling, and weaker than the Beta. Compared to the forces of the Alpha Quadrant Alliance, its abilities and strength were equivalent to the lieutenant rank.

In 2409, a horde of Species M-113 emerged from the underground in the Hfihar system and began attacking the Romulan Republic colonists of the Hfihar mining colony. While the M-113 creature could not derive salt from Vulcanoids, the revived species had been genetically modified and where a threat to Romulans. An Allied party present at the colony fought the Species M-113 creatures and guided the evacuation of the colonists. (STO - "Season 7: New Romulus" mission: "Mine Trap")
