One of several new demon species introduced in id Software's 2004 DOOM 3 video game. These hell-spawn, and their brethren, gained entry into our plane of existance as a direct result of UAC (Union Aerospace Corporation) experiments into teleportation, led by scientist Malcolm Betruger. The most notable aspect of these creatures in their grotesque appearance--sporting twin heads, a pair of barbed hunchbacks, and five mismatched limbs, Maggots aren't likely to be mistaken for anything else. While they prefer crawling about on all fours . . . er . . . fives, Maggots are also capable of walking/running in an upright manner, like a human, when they choose. Fast and agile, Maggots rush their victims and tear them apart with their claws. They are also proficient leapers and climbers; one will often find them clinging to walls and/or ceilings, waiting to ambush the unwary. The reason for their namesake is unknown, as they are not worm/grub-like in appearance. It's possible the moniker refers to their pale skin coloring, an appetite for carrion, or an unseen adolescent state that does in some fashion resemble the traditional fly larva.
(In no particular order of importance.)
