Worker Splinters are a breed of Splinter that is bred for service, not combat. Samus Aran encountered them on Aether. They spend their time collecting food and material for the hive. They are found in the tunnel systems as opposed to the surface of Aether. Worker Splinters can spin a tensile webbing for use in storing food and constructing edifices for the Splinter hive.
Worker Splinters are insubstantial, spindly and almost transparent. They have pale bodies with a weak carapace, and a cluster of eyes that is less pronounced than that of the predatory Splinter (possibly as a side effect of evolving to thrive in a subterranean environment).
