The "space-bug-zompire thing" was the term Spike used to refer the end result of one of his bug demon crewmates being sired by a zompire, creating a unique demon life-form . Due to the destruction of the Seed of Wonder, the bug mutated into a monstrous, vampiric beast with insectoid attributes and a secondary mouth inside its jaws. Nonetheless, they retained vampire weaknesses and limitations such as sunlight.
The first, and so far only, example of a "space-bug-zompire thing" was Irene.
Behind the scenes
- The space-bug-zompire thing is actually a Xenomorph from the Alien film franchise. Aliens had previously been alluded to in the Angel episode "Harm's Way", which established Weyland-Yutani as a top client of Wolfram & Hart.
- A Predator made an appearance in City of Despair.
- This is the only instance of a non-human life form being sired.
