Cavava in the tower

Cavava at the spinning wheel, making armor


Cavava, when Dylan Hunt first met her, was a beautiful young woman imprisoned in a fairy-tale tower, spinning bio-armor. Extended acquaintance, however, proves this was just a disguise, with the creature's true form being rather more monstrous, and the bio-armor her 'children', an army designed to spread throughout the stars. When Dylan attempted to imprison Cavava and her 'offspring' in the cargo hold of the Andromeda, she attacked him, and he had the AI freeze the area (whilst he took refuge in a Lancer Drop Pod), thus killing the creature, and severing the psychic link with the bio-armor, which was rendered useless.


  • Dylan's remembered tale, of the old woman in the tower whose true desire was chaos, makes Cavava sound much like Eris, the goddess of discord in Greek mythology, and the one who threw the Apple of Discord into the meeting of the gods, thus creating the strife which led to the Trojan War.
  • The story has similarities to the "Rapunzel", "Rumpelstiltskin", and "The Lady of Shalott".
