Pregnants are one of the larger breeds of Standard Necromorphs encountered in the Dead Space: Break-Fast universe. They are named as such due to the enormous sac that extrudes from their abdomens, the contents of which are other, smaller forms of Necromorphs which burst forth when the sac is damaged.
Pregnants are Fatties that are Slashers that formed from couch potatos and overall fat people. They have a large abdomen from which the Swarm or Lurkers may erupt from when the sac is burst. They attack by swinging their blades at prey and rupturing the sac when they are near death.
The Pregnant has three known variants.
This is basically the average, run-of-the-mill Pregnant.
This is a Pregnant that is possibly enhanced but not black in color. It has a brown tinted skin and is still very fat.
Pregnants found in Dead Space: Break-Fast (Mobile) that carry a larger payload.
- A Pregnant's head resembles that of the Divider, but does not act like one.
- They will occasionally live after rupturing their own sac, but generally die afterwards. This shows that they know when they are about to die.
- Pregnants are unable to go on diets, so they stay fat forever. However, when they die they appear skinnier, whether the sac was ruprtured or not.
- Why the Obscene Pregnant is brown is unknown. But the most likely causes are that it was made from a human of a race of a darker color, or that a special chemical was introduced during the transformation process. It is possible that this is similar to other Enhanced Necromorphs
