"One single Flood spore can destroy a species."
Rtas Vadum

Flood Spores are the most basic of Flood forms that are crucial in the formation of Flood hives. Spores are also used as methods of suffocating future hosts and clearing the area of uninfected hostiles. It is not known if spores take a specific form or if they are just any type of floating Flood biomass. Spores linger through the air clogging air filtration systems and making it easier to infect hosts. If a spore lands in an area that can support it, it will form Flood Growth Pods. If the area does not have enough biomass to support a Flood Growth Pod, the spore will spread over floors and walls until it covers as much as it can. It is possible that if a non-infected host inhales or becomes covered with these spores, then the host may be infected through lysogenic replication, or the body will be dissolved into the necessary nutrients demanded for the Flood to create the various forms needed at the time.

Trivia

  • You can see Flood spores in Halo 2 and Halo 3 on levels where there is massive Flood infection, such as Quarantine Zone and Cortana.
  • The Special Operations Elite Kusovai was horribly infected when he inhaled too many Flood spores.
  • In Halo Wars they are referred to as "spore clouds", and they only appear after a Flood Growth Pod has been destroyed, or a Flood Launcher fires flood biomass at your units and when it strikes the ground it will sometimes release spore cloud. Marines that stay in spore clouds for too long will die and become Human Combat Forms.
  • It is of note that when SPARTAN-117 and the Arbiter were held captive by the Gravemind, the Arbiter would have most likely inhaled many spores, due to the fact that the Gravemind was exhaling them. SPARTAN-117's helmet would have filtered them out of any air that his armor took in. It is possible, but very unlikely, that the Arbiter's Armor or shields protected him. The Gravemind may have also made sure not to infect the Arbiter, since he needed him for the Index.

Era(s)
"About four hundred years ago, my people took their experiments too far. Using the genes of the vesuvague tree and the Bafforrs, along with some other things, they created a new form of life. Like the vesuvague, this creation snared its victims in its tentacle like vines. It also had a group mind like the Bafforr trees. However, unlike the wise Bafforrs, its mind was evil."
Fandomar Nadon

Spore was an ancient entity imprisoned 400 years before the Galactic Civil War in an asteroid by the Ithorians.

Contents

Genesis

A genetic construct created by Ithorian botanists, who had hoped to merge the DNA of a Vesuvague tree and a bafforr tree with other material to create a sentient plant. Instead, they created an evil creature which needed more minds to expand its thoughts and work its damage. The entity used the minds of almost any living creature to augment its own power. It was thought that Spore could control several thousand minds at one time.

Capture

The crisis began in the year 439 BBY (404BrS:4:11). With the help of the Jedi Knights, it still took over 100 years for the Ithorians to capture and neutralize Spore, entombing the entity in an asteroid where it was forced into dormancy by the hard vacuum of space.

The Ithorians refused to kill Spore, owing to their strict adherence to the Law of Life. When Mining Station Alpha was established on the asteroid to collect minerals, the Ithorians carefully monitored their progress, lest they discovered Spore's tomb. Unfortunately, the tomb was discovered by Hodge and his team shortly after the Battle of Yavin.

Release

Spore was released, and the ripples of evil permeated the Force. Emperor Palpatine sent the Dark Jedi Jerec to capture Spore, but the entity had already escaped its prison and hidden itself in the body of the mining chief Hodge. Ithorian Fandomar was livid with fear, and rushed to escape the asteroid before Spore could infect anyone, but she was too late.

She brought Hodge - and Spore - back to Ithor, and Spore attacked the rescue party that came to find them. Black vines snaked out from Hodge's mouth and eyes, entwining the Ithorians and eventually capturing the Shi'ido Mammon Hoole and Zak Arranda. Each vine that touched a being, infected it immediately. Spore was patient and knew it would eventually infect any Ithorian herdship. Imperial shuttle with Jerec intercepted Spore on Ithor, and offered it the chance to get off the planet if it would infect the crew of the Vengeance and make them his slaves. Spore first attacked Jerec, but Jerec with the Dark side of the Force easily deflected Spore's vines, Spore then agreed, but had no intentions of helping Jerec for very long. Spore tried to capture Tash Arranda and Fandomar Nadon, but they led Spore into asteroid belt infested with space slugs. Space slugs attacked and destroyed the Vengeance deflector shields. Crushing asteroids then made holes in it large enough to expose Vengeance to the vacuum of space.

Defeat

Exposure to the vacuum of space caused Spore to disintegrate, neutralizing the creature, leaving only a small dark object floating in the void.
