The Deacons fate?4,529 Views5 RepliesAdd A Reply
So at the end of prometheus we see the deacon emerge from the body of the dead engineer. I am curious as to what happens to it? Does it become a queen (or a king), or does it just die? I really hope that it's gonna get used later because it seemed like an important thing. Feel free to discuss
In the film it's unknown what happened to it.
In dark horse comics Prometheus: fire and stone, it is speculated that it mutated into a living mountain (yeah I know weird). Earlier in the comics if I remember correctly (It's been a while since I read the comics), one of the survivors who was studying the pathogen settled on the mountain, and he noticed that the mountain is growing bigger and bigger and that for some reason xenomorphs are avoiding it. At the end of fire and stone when survivors dug into the mountain in search of the beacon, they found out it's a living organism.
Yeah thats HOW the Comics had Shown it.... does-not make a lot of Sense though ;)
The Concept Works for Prometheus had Indicated the Deacon would Venture Out onto the Surface... but then its FATE is Unknown.
It seemed the Deacon took like 5 Days to Gestate.... by which TIME we see that David and Dr Shaw had LEFT the Moon.....
What Becomes of it is OPEN for Debate....
*HOW LONG can the Deacon Live for?
*Can the Deacon Procreate and HOW?
*WOULD its Off-Spring require a HOST to Gestate?
If we look at the Deacon it seems to be a Human Hybrid and so maybe it does NOT have to LAY EGGS... maybe it can Procreate on its Own (Asexual Reproduction) and so it may Give Birth to Live Young, that can Grow and then Procreate themselves....
IF SO then anyone who Returns to LV-223 will be in Store to Discover Many such Creatures.
I had taken the Size of the New Born Deacon before and classed it as a Mammal and then looked at a Mammals Birth Size to Adult and we would have been in for a 12ft Deacon.
Looking at Fire and Stone it indicated they would be 10ft thats NOT something to be Messed with.

Having it turned into a mountain is weird but I'm OK with not knowing. By not showing what happened you allow people to make up their own stories, a bit like the mysteries that we were given in Alien. Comics is one thing movies is another so I hope that they never let that happen in the official time-line.
Oh so that's what happened to the deacon
