EPG-8656 was the designation of an Elite Pirate created during the Project Helix venture. Samus Aran never encounters this Pirate during her infiltration of their headquarters on Tallon IV.
Facility Command had requested Elite Pirate security forces, and EPG-8656 as well as EPG-8644 were prepared for field duty there.
