Note: living insect swarm; acts on pure instinct
Hyve was first seen on the Earth that Exile member Nocturne originates from. Hyve was a living swarm of ravenous black insects which can swarm victims and devour their flesh to the bone. Hyve joined Cyclops in an assault on the X-Men of an alternative timeline. Lucien destroyed Hyve.
Hyve was later portrayed as a "member" (if the word can be used for it) of the Exiles of the future (or, in at least one possible future). Hyve worked closely with Cyclops. None of the future Exiles knew anything about Hyve's origin or purpose. Hyve instintually assisted them. There was no real way to communicate with the swarm.
