The Flood - conceived in 1995?
Longtime b.orger (wait, what?) Mikey-san noticed something the rest of us didn't notice; he went digging through the Marathon Infinity source code Bungie released last week, and found, buried in the 'narrative' document inside the 'notes' folder of the marathon2 section, a pair of 'Natives' that were never used:

Fungus Pfhor. Drags staff. Shoots spores, reincarnates after dying.
Fungus Sucker. Shoots spores, reincarnates after dying.

The section for Kill Your Television contains this description:

Human scouts in this area reported Pfhor herders infected with a strange native fungus. The S'pht tell me that this fungus attacks and eventually replaces the nervous system of it's host, reanimating the corpse and using it to search for and infect other victims.

Anyone who's played through the KYT level knows that we never encountered these... at that time. Sure seems like the concept was reused later, though! (Louis Wu 17:04:46 UTC)
