-Positive & Negative Traits / Advantages & Disadvantages-

Hyper Linguist: +10 to interpret unknown languages, 1/3 time and XP needed to learn any language.

Eidetic Memory: Much like a computer, the character has perfect memory recall. They can remember anything they have sensed, often even from a single glance.

Math Boost: +30 to any rolls involving complex calculations.

Rapid Healer: Halves healing times.

-Implants / Enhancements / Customizations-

Biotech Implants

Echolocation: Blindsight out to 20 meters in air, 100 in water. (low)

Enhanced Sight: +20 to perception tests involving vision. (low)

Adrenal Boost: Ignores -10 modifier from 1 wound and boosts Ref by +10 when active. Endocrine control means it can be activated and deactivated at will. (high)

Bioweave Armor (Light): Provides armor of 2 energy/3 kinetic without changing appearance, texture or sensitivity of skin. Can be worn with all other armor without penalty. (low)

Circadian Regulation: Can operate normally under only 2 hours of sleep per 24. Can operate for 44 hours with only 4 hours of sleep at will. (Moderate)

Clean Metabolism: Immune to infections, cavities, bad breath, no bad odors, etc. Generally stays clean. (Moderate)

Endocrine Control: This augmentation modifies the morph’s endocrine system, giving the character control over their hormone output. This allows the character to completely control their appetite and emotions and to regulate pain. They receive a +30 modifier against the effects of hunger, fear, and any forms of emotional manipulation, such as the Drive Emotion sleight. This augmentation also allows character to lie with perfect conviction and to completely fool all methods of lie detection that do not rely on the target’s neural output; apply a +20 modifer to Deception Tests. It also allows the character to remain awake for 48 hours without penalty, but after this time the character begins experiencing normal fatigue. Finally, the ability to regulate pain reception allows the character to ignore the –10 modifier from 1 wound. [High]

Enhanced Respiration: By boosting both lung efficiency and the blood’s oxygen-carrying capacity, the character can live comfortably in both high and low pressure environments, from 0.2 atmospheres to 5 atmospheres, with no dizziness or need for gradual decompression. In addition, the character can hold their breath for up to 30 minutes when performing minimal activity or for up to 10 minutes while performing highly strenuous activity. [Low]

Temperature Tolerance: The morph’s temperature regulation and circulation are both substantially enhanced allowing the character to survive in temperatures as low as –30 degrees Celsius and as high as 60 degrees Celsius without discomfort or ill effects. [Low]

Toxin Filters: Total immunity to any biological or chemical toxicity. Does not protect against concentrated acid or nanotech attacks. (Moderate)

Cyberware Implants

Multitasking: Can sustain multiple simultaneous short-term mental forks for a maximum of 4 hours each. They can only perform purely mental or on-line interactions. Offers 2 additional complex actions per action phase for mental or on-line actions. (High)

Medichines: Ignores the effects of 1 wound, prevents diseases, drugs and toxins from doing more than half duration or minor harm, puts character in medical stasis if sustaining more than 5 wounds at once, or 6 in an hour. (low)

Skillware: Allows installation of skillsofts, can handle 100 points of skillsofts at a time. (High)

Nanophages: Provides immunity against nanodrugs and nanotoxins. Can be commanded to stand down. (moderate)

Skinlink: Creates a wired connection with any touched device or person. (Moderate)

Wrist-Mounted Tools: Produces tools, fiberoptics and claw weapons. Grants +20 to repair, modify, lockpicking, disarming and first aid rolls. (Moderate)
