Fire ants are mutated giant ants that have recently swarmed over the settlement of Grayditch. They were accidentally created by a scientist named Doctor Weston Lesko. He was attempting to return giant ants to their normal size through genetic manipulation, making the ants exponentially smaller over generations, but as he reasons, one small tweak of an error has left the ants with a completely different mutation. The fact that he used F.E.V. in his experiments in order to produce a quicker result may also help explain the "error". This error, as their name suggests, allows them to project fire from their mouth, what Lesko calls pyrosis.
