The '''Ravener Alpha''' is a member of the [[Ravener]] genus of [[Tyranid]], engineered for fast surprise assaults and the leading of the surrounding swarm.

Greater in strength, resilience and intelligence than its more common counterpart the [[Ravener]], it's main purpose is tunneling under enemy lines to open up strategic tunnels for other elements of the swarm to use.<sup>1</sup> With biomorphs almost rivaling those of the larger [[Synapse creature|Synapse creatures]],<sup>2</sup> it fulfills a battlefield role similar to the [Tyranid Prime]. It is also the only variant of the Ravener capable of [[Synapse|Synaptic support]].<sup>3</sup>
