The Charybdis Brood's faction color was turquoise.
The Charybdis Brood was known for its superior tracking abilities and was often called upon to hunt down escaped breeders and wayward enemies of the Dark Swarm across wild terrain or through the endless void of space. Although the numbers of this Brood were few, it carried out its pursuit with merciless precision and cunning. Their primary role, however, was to find new races and genetic strains that would benefit the Swarm through absorption. Once an acceptable race was found, the Charybis Brood would hound it until it had been either assimilated by the New Overmind or eradicated completely. They would also systematically hunt down and eliminate opponents of the Dark Swarm. The creatures of this brood were known for their formidable tracking skills and their deadly efficiency.
