The Aschere morph template is derived from the Menton morph; it is however designed to be more resilient and capable of ‘fieldwork’, drawing on the Fury genome and other toughness-increasing biomods. Mental architecture modifications allow individual Aschere morphs to specialize in snap intuitive judgements over deliberate thinking, something that is often invaluable for a scientist or thinker operating in the field.
Designed by Cipher Anaphylaxis, as part of a project to allow the EA’s intellectuals and scientists to confront challenges ‘in the flesh’, so to speak.
