GEMeni Synthetic Sketches by Zaeta-K GEMeni Synthetic Sketches by Zaeta-K
*Edit: Swapped out the VSS head*

Sketches of some of GEMeni's elite cybernetic / artificial soldiers. You guys might remember them as two characters at the bottom of my giant "innawoods" compilation sheet : o Might rework their designs a little but I felt this is a good starting point XD

Taking much of the groundwork already established by Etledyne, makers of the popular EOS line of synthetics ( [link] ), GEMeni recovered data lost by the company to create their own agents of destruction.

Both models are fully capable of going toe-to-toe with Runlar's Sojourners. The "Beleth" model is the more specialized variant, made of a hybrid of dmargo, ferrithian, and tsudayin DNA and usually operating under two different combat principles. The first "phase" includes a very heavily armed, flash and smoke grenade-laden assault; Beleths are masters of diversionary tactics. Entire teams of Runlar and ARC troopers alike often report falsely that they're under attack from at least three different enemy squads, when in reality it is only one Beleth causing all the mayhem. Their primary weapon is a large-magazine bullpup LMG. The second "phase" of combat begins when a Beleth comes under too much fire or has used the majority of their explosives. Their entire suit and gear are manufactured with emergency quick-release straps (think "party pants" you can just rip off P: ), so they can quickly remove all garments. A Beleth is covered nearly entirely in a photo-reflective "down feather" coating - when activated, it renders them nearly invisible. Though their gear won't "vanish" with them, it certainly makes them a much harder target to hit, especially when their extreme agility is taken into consideration. Their eyes are their largest give-away; one of the few things not to be covered in the "photoptic fur."

The VSS synthetics are much more versatile, and cheaper to manufacture. Created with dmargo and human DNA, VSS synthetics are just as fast as a Beleth, but lack the ability to cloak themselves. They are much more keen to working together in pairs or small teams, and have a direct link to GEMeni databases cataloging nearly everything known to them, from weapons, planets, and personnel. Their half-cybernetic brains are also able to wirelessly hack a number of different systems, from TA mechs to door locks.

You know that they are alien, right, you can make alien edition anything. With a Humanised version that carries attributes of what is otherwise known of another species attack.

These are cool. I like how you design uniforms and armor for different races and make it look like a company ad.

There's something really creepy about artificial soldiers, y'know? Mostly the fact that they look like familiar living things, but they lack the sort of emotions and conscience that most do because they are built as weapons. A bit off-topic but vaguely related, but I just woke up from a dream where there were weaponized AIs against us, but I ended up capturing some (somehow?) and one of them was friendly towards us and I ended the dream having a nice little conversation with him.

GEMeni is bad news bears man. The only opponent who can fight with Neo Runlar and win most of the time.

are the synthetics used as regular foot soldiers? or just used for spec ops missions like the sojourners?

They're more common than a Sojourner, but not exactly their common infantry.

These things aren't sentient are they? I've got to ask because you know how iffy the shareholders are on the risk that one of them has as existential crisis or something, you know.

Depends on how sophisticated / unlocked their programming is, but for the most part, they're semi-sentient in terms of figuring out the best way to accomplish objectives.

No, I mean't the synthetic soldier part, I think it was Halo or Star Wars/Star Trek. Either way,I'm guessing these guys become very bad, right?

Probably, the idea goes very far back P:

They're bad already because they're GEMeni haha
