Cryptosporidium (Crypto) is a Furon warrior and the main, anti-hero protagonist of the entire Destroy All Humans! series.
Crypto looks similar to a Grey but with pointed teeth. His eyes are reflective like all Furons. Crypto wears a space suit with pieces of armor throughout the years.
Crypto's most obvious trait is his taste for destruction, making him an effective soldier for the Furon Empire. Needless to say, he is very sadistic, taking pleasure in torturing human beings. He speaks with a very slow and emotionless Texas accent.
While he started out by hating all things human, he mellows out when the game sequels come out, no doubt due to spending years mingling with humanity. In the first game, he shows a mild perverted side when he's about to probe Miss Rockwell, but said perversion is exaggerated during later games, though this is probably due to him having acquired genitalia.
When with others, enemies and allies alike, Crypto is very rude. Between being very sarcastic, mocking, or simply threatening people, Crypto has few moments of honesty, usually when he's in serious trouble. He often speaks with a variety of wise-cracking remarks. Crypto is often inclined to killing those who he simply doesn't like unless ordered against such urges due to mission requirements.
Despite his sociopathic traits, he does show that he cares about his allies. He freaks out when Natalya dies on the moon and when Orthopox was almost destroyed in Fantasy Atoll. He even mourns the Master when he fakes his death.
Despite his barbaric, destructive personality, Crypto has an advanced intellect like all Furons. He has at least some knowledge of how to build and understand his race's technology, he just doesn't show it much.
He is also known to be an alcoholic, tomboy, gambler, smoker, and many other personalities of the sort.
Abilities, Weapons, and EquipmentEdit
Crypto, being a soldier is efficient with most weaponry, He prefers an all-out offensive and has little regard for subtlety or stealth, though he is capable of such a strategy. He is also a capable pilot with his Saucer, having crashed only twice. The first when it was hit with a tesla coil and the second when he was "drunk" flying in Las Paradiso.
Crypto has mental abilities like all Furons. Crypto's mental abilities are very advanced, due to being upgraded by Orthopox on a regular basis and training under the Master.
He has an unlimited supply of clones that will take his place if he dies on a mission, all of which have the same personality, but an increasing number appended to their name (Crypto 137, Crypto 138, Crypto 139, and so on). This makes Crypto virtually immortal like every Furon.
- Crypto resembles the Martians from the popular 1996 film Mars Attacks.
