A Neophyte hybrid is a third or fourth generation Genestealer hybrid. Appearing more human than most hybrids, particularly those of the fourth generation that can be considered fully human, they often serve as the Genestealer Cults' primary infiltration forces.
They infiltrate planetary infrastructure organizations, local militia and enforcer squads, and even the regiments of the Astra Militarum. Neophyte hybrids also serve as their cult's primary infantry troops, making up the bulk of the cult's troops, including their squadrons of armored vehicles.
An Astra Militarum regiment stationed on a Genestealer-infested world is slowly being populated by cultists, and sometimes completely taken over. Such infected military organs strive to remain incognito until the day of the uprising, after which they reveal their true allegiance and launch deadly surprise attacks on their fellow regiments before joining the main body of the cult.
It is common for the neophyte hybrids of a Gen-Sect's later breeding cycles to infiltrate their world's garrison forces, or even those Astra Militarum regiments drawn from their populace. There, they work with the infected humans who fathered the cult's hybrids, which are part of his Broodmind - yet appear normal - to ensure the cult continues to expand. These men and women are referred to as "brood brothers" within the cult.
Within an armed force that recruits such diverse breeds of humans as Ratlings and Ogryns, slight variations in appearance, such as those found in fourth-generation hybrids, are often overlooked -- especially when the cadets in question are so efficient and obedient -- and im As the generations pass, it is common for the infiltrating members of this world's infestation to be grouped in the same trains.
