Role in story
The alien arrived on Earth, just when Mr. Snippy had uncovered a plot to kill the Captain, that involved the mug. Snippy refused to return the potential dangerous mug to the Captain and was thus targetted by the Arbitrator, who seems to have only a very rough description of the Captain's appearance.
Since it wasn't able to locate any other sentient bipedal being in the vicinity and Snippy was holding the Captain's mug the Arbitrator is convinced that the Captain is nothing more than a split personality of Mr. Snippy.
It is planning to kidnap the sniper and take him into custody and destroying the Earth.
Aliens' reason to destroy the Earth
While the aliens first thought the dead Earth would be perfect for colonializing, the Arbitrator now has orders to destroy it. It seems the high amount of radioactive dust in the atmosphere shielded the still operating ANNET-system from discovery until the Biomass found out about it while scanning Mr. Snippy's memories. The aliens fear the ANNET as they see it as an anorganic parasite that feeds on the thoughts of sentient beings. They are ready to rather destroy the Earth than have the ANNET take over more worlds.
The Biomass explained to Snippy, that the Earth is contaminated with the ANNET's Grid from far underground till high up in the troposphere (the part of the atmosphere weather phenomenons take place in, ends at altitude of ~10km). this could be a hint that the hostile snowflakes encountered by the squad are indeed probes sent by the ANNET.
