Leviathan

Info
Other name(s): WAU Shark, Abyss Worm
Location: Abyss, Site Alpha
Gender: N/A

The Leviathan is the largest enemy encountered in SOMA. The Leviathan appears to be a Giant Squid that is heavily mutated by the Structure Gel.

The Leviathan makes several harmless appearances throughout the Abyss before becoming a threat near the game's ending.

Description

The Leviathan, according to a log, is a Giant Squid that has undergone heavily a WAU mutation by structure gel leaks. The creature no longer resembles its former self, but looks like a giant worm.

Its mantle and tentacles are covered with plated growths, and it has many glowing blue WAU receptors on its body. In addition, where there once were only fins, the creature's front has now grown large mandibles. The creature has a single glowing red eye in the middle of its mouth.

Its body appears to be covered in human faces, locked in screaming poses, possibly due to the fact they were its previous victims and were fused with the creature, growing its size.

Behavior

The Leviathan follows Simon Jarrett all the way to the Omega Space Gun, swimming in close proximity to wherever Simon goes. It attempts to attack Simon if he wanders too far from any light sources. If caught, Simon is grabbed and brought back to a designated distance, sustaining a small amount of damage. Like the other mutated deep-sea creatures, the Leviathan avoids any light sources.

Though Simon is safe near many light sources, it is recommended to hide behind objects as Simon nears the space gun. When Simon nears the space gun, the Leviathan will attack regardless of illumination/proximity. Simon can charge all the way to the space gun, using WAU connection spots found through the journey to recover if attacked.

The Leviathan makes several appearances in the Abyss, first just swimming past Simon and ignoring him, but later it attacks a robot helper Simon activates for light. Later, when Johan Ross tries to kill Simon in the heart of the WAU, the Leviathan breaks through the floor of the WAU facility and devours Ross before pursuing Simon to the Omega Space Gun, where it eventually breaks off its pursuit.
