Bio-androids are artificially created or enhanced organic lifeforms, in counterpoint to their robotic brethren. They are usually intended to improve upon an existing species or provide a chimeric appropriation of many desired traits, creating warriors conventionally more powerful than their naturally-born brethren.
Name Pun Theme(s):
Some Bio-androids follow names based on genetic/biological terms (Cell, Bio* etc) while others follow name puns more closely related to their base race group.
|Starting Planet: Anywhere||Starter Power Level: 800-2200|
Appearance: Often share characteristics of their their biological constituents (whichever races these may be), though insectoid characteristics are also a common enhancements utilized in their creation designs.
|Background: Like the natural organic life it imitates, the Bio-android progresses through stages of growth during its lifetime, and these stages of growth are often (but not always) accompanied by the need to absorb or digest others in order to survive or grow. Some Bio-androids are created deliberately by governments, corporations, or renegade laboratories, while others are accidents of science, nature, or even magic. Many have a natural distrust or fear of these creations, as their proliferation is not as widespread as their mechanical cousins, and they are often used at the forefront of experimental and sometimes illicit weapons projects. Many Bio-androids seek to downplay their differences and live in harmony with the Universe, while others revel in their place as the ultimate intersection of biological life and technology.|
Bio-androids have various characteristics, either emulated or directly inherited from other races. Some examples might include Namekian regeneration, durability, zenkai, or other beneficial traits. These act as 'hybridized' traits, slightly weaker than a pure species would be, but still very useful. Player picks up to three, cannot include Majin.
|Absorption||When absorbing for their two major transformations, they may take 33% of their targets base PL (up to 33,000) and add it to their own. Absorbing a player character prior to the requirements of their two major transformations will fill Bio-Metabolize to x8 immediately! If your absorption would boost your Base Power Level to within range of either of your major transformations you'll instead unlock it! (Absorptions may happen mid-thread)|
An empowered state which can be enhanced through absorption either of other player characters, or by the much less efficient method of spending a technique point on it the Bio-android metabolizing the excess energies into a wicked aura and intense strength, channeling it alongside their natural proficiency. Each use will digest this excess energy and reduce the multiplier back towards it's minimum by -2x, so Bio-androids must use it tactically to secure key objectives.
|Catalyst or Cocoon|
At 120,000 PL the Bio-android faces a challenge. Their evolution reaches a biological ceiling, and they must either absorb an enemy to ascend to great new heights, or form into a cocoon and concentrate their energies to progress. The Catalyst option is stronger and faster, but requires two player absorptions.* The Cocoon option is slower and weaker, but no player absorption is required. Whether or not the Catalyst or Cocoon is chosen has an irreversable effect on the Bio-android's overall PL progression, as shown below.
*Absorptions for the Catalyst path do not need to be done while at the required Power Level for the transformations. For instance, if you absorb someone while at 5,000 Power Level and do not absorb again until 120,000, then you can still unlock the Semi-Perfect form.
