The Luminoth Sentinel may be one of the more obscure characters, but he's a potent ally of Samus who appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes.

The New Terror

Logbook entry

“In time, the Ing began to possess Luminoth as well as creatures.”

Twilight

Logbook entry

“What few remained gathered in the Great Temple. There, all but U-Mos, the last Sentinel of Aether, entered into life-preserving stasis. There they would remain, to be released once the Ing were destroyed… or to sleep forever. His people safe, U-Mos prepared for the last, terrible assault. In the silence of the Great Temple, he prayed for salvation, for deliverance from the terror of the Ing.”

The Ing were able to control Luminoth and were trying to take over the Great Temple, seeing as how creatures inside the Great Temple were taken over by the Ing. However, the Ing did not ever take over U-Mos. This is similar to the Sentinel of Torvus, whose scan data indicates:

Scan data

“Bioscan complete.

Subject Luminoth has been dead for 1.2 decacycles. In addition to heavy combat damage, subject shows signs of numerous Ing possession attempts – all failed. Resisting these assaults would require incredible stamina and psychic durability.”

Thus, U-Mos should have significant levels of stamina and mental durability.

Sensory Abilities:

Sentinel Crystal

Temporary scan

“Xenotech: Luminoth Sentinel Crystal

Used to monitor key sites.

Used by Luminoth soldiers to observe tactical areas during the war. Most are still broadcasting to U-Mos.”

Logbook entry

“During the war, the Luminoth used the Sentinel Crystals to monitor key areas and installations. They are incredibly durable resisting all but the most powerful of Ing attacks. U-Mos still uses the remaining Sentinel Crystals to keep a watch for Ing activity.”

Dark Sentinel Crystal

Temporary scan

“Xenotech: Dark Sentinel Crystal

Monitor system designed for use on Dark Aether.

Used by Luminoth soldiers to monitor critical areas throughout Dark Aether. Few remain; those that do broadcast data to U-Mos of Aether.”

From Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

U-Mos can receive and process information from the Sentinel Crystals.
