GR: It's been a while since I finished Gears of War 3. I liked it and everything but I was majorly bummed that it never revealed why the Locust Queen looks like a human. It was one thing that I really wanted to know. Needed to know. How the hell could developer Epic be so cruel and leave a loose end hanging like that? It's a question that still burns me like a urinary infection.
So in the absence of actual official canon clarification (or anything better to do), I thought I would knock together a few possible but not all entirely probable explanations as to why Gears of War's Locust Queen looks like a human and nothing at all like a Locust. Here we go.
