A Basic Cybernetic Arm is a Cyberware device.

  • It is a replacement for an organic limb.
  • The exact size and dimensions of the leg are tailored to match the physical characteristics of the recipient.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

A battery powered cybernetic limb constructed from strong lightweight materials that includes a Basic Cybernetic Foot as standard. It closely matches the strength and capabilities of an organic leg.

  • A Basic Cybernetic Leg replaces approximately 20% of the body in humans. In other sophonts, a leg may represent a greater or lesser percentage of the body.
  • It may have a pseudobio appearance, with synthetic skin, silent operation and species-normal body temperatures.
  • Some individuals prefer a colorful or bizarre finish or leave the internal mechanics of the leg exposed.
  • It may be multi-jointed, allowing for greater articulation and range of movement.

The Basic Cybernetic Leg directly connects to the individual's nervous system, allowing it to be controlled as though it were a natural limb, and provides sensory feedback such as touch, pressure, texture and temperature.

  • The leg provides feedback about its power levels and functionality.
  • Exceeding the legs design specifications may cause it to malfunction or in extreme cases cause injury to the individual or tear away from their body.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The Basic Cybernetic Leg is a life-like prosthesis designed to replace an organic limb. It is knitted into the body around the hip (for a full leg replacement) or the knee (for a lower leg replacement). Note that lower leg replacements have less volume and as such are generally cheaper and lighter.

Similar devices have been in use since the days of the First Imperium. They reached their modern form through Terran medical advances achieved during the Interstellar Wars period.


The leg may not be fitted with modifications.

  • Armor: the leg may be fitted with armor, either as an integral feature or as external plates.
