"Let me get this shit straight. The regular Locust are fighting the glowin' Locust? I thought they were all on the same side."
Augustus Cole, after seeing Lambent attacking Locust inside Nexus

The Lambent Grenadier was a Locust Grenadier which has endured a prolonged exposure to Imulsion. Despite the horrid mutations, the Grenadier's aggressive instincts and preference fro close-combat remains intact.[1]
