Umbra Adrenal Pump
The Adrenal Pump is a small bio-gland grafted onto the suprarenal gland above the kidneys. Throughout the day, the Adrenal Pump soaks up corticosteroids. When the right combination of stress and excitement triggers the Adrenal Pump, it floods the system with the built-up hormones. Operating at such elevated levels is taxing, and take caution, as anything that elevates the heart-rate has a chance of setting the pump off…
Statistics: +2 Initiative (Wetware, -20% Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%) 6; +2 Striking ST (Wetware, -20% Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%) 6; +1 Lifting ST (Wetware, -20% Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%) 2; High Pain Threshold (Wetware, -20% Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%) 6; Hair Trigger: Any situation where the character is especially excited or stressed (GM’s call), he/she must make a Will Roll to NOT activate the pump. A failed Bad Temper or Berserk roll automatically triggers the pump. [-10];
Rossum Reflex Enhancers
Reflex Enhancers uses cutting-edge neural-science to create a short-cut in brain-to-body synaptic exchange, allowing for faster reactions and better hand-eye-coordination. Although expensive, the Reflex Enhancers are still popular among high-end security forces and sponsored athletes.
BioMai Response-Pathway Accelerators
Response-Pathway Accelerators are designed to greatly increase the speed of emergency-action decisions in fighter-pilots, combat troops and other people who operate in environments where a half of a second of response time could mean the difference between life and death.
Want a little more Bang for your Buck than our competition offers and avoid “hulking out” at in-opportune moments? Try the Bio-Booster! Rather than depending on emotional stress to trigger, the Bio-Booster is a self-activated trigger for releasing several different emergency response hormones into the bloodstream. Warning: Extended use of the Bio-Booster is recommended only for those in good physical health.
Statistics: Basic Speed +1.00 (Wetware, -20%; Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%; Cardiac Stress, every minute, -30%) 6; Lifting ST +3 (Wetware, -20%; Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%; Cardiac Stress, every minute, -30%) 3; and Striking ST +3 (Wetware, -20%; Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%; Cardiac Stress, every minute, -30%) 5.
Umbra Super Thyroid
This procedure replaces the thyroid with a vat-grown surrogate that optimizes the break down and conversions of starches and sugars into energy. The boosted metabolism effectively super-charges the recipient, at the cost increasing his/her food requirements. The constant breaking process of anabolism is endothermic – meaning the recipient gives off more body heat than a normal human, and recipients of a Super Thyroid tend to be hyperactive.
BioMai Wonder Cartilage
Need a little extra flexibility in your line of work? Wonder Cartilage just might be the edge you need, whether you’re an acrobat, exotic dancer, or something more exotic. This extensive procedure replaces the recipients cartilage with a more flexible, shock-absorbing material.
Rossum Decentralized Heart
They heart is one of the most vital, fragile, organs in human body, so why keep it all in the same place? With the Decentralized Heart, the heart is replaced with several smaller blood-pumps that splits up the workload into a diffuse system. Worrying about heart attacks and heart-shots are a thing of the past! Disclaimer: The Rossum Decentralized Heart only replaces the heart, all other chest-cavity vital organs remain intact – heart or no heart, it is not advised that clients try taking a projectile to the chest, as this may still be fatal in many cases.
Kerser Pacesetter Sports Heart
Run faster, play longer: the Sports Heart is a cardiovascular overhaul for the athletically minded. This high-performance bio-upgrade has a mentally activated trigger that boosts endurance and athletic performance to epic new levels! Warning: The Kerser Sports Heart is intended for short bursts of athletic superiority, not prolonged “marathon” sports sessions; extended use can lead to dizziness, confusion, and on rare occasions in subjects that were not physically fit, cardiac arrest.
Statistics: +3 HT (Wetware, -20% Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%) 18; +1 Basic Speed (Wetware, -20% Costs 1 FP/10 Seconds, -20%) 12; Note: the Sports Heart is incompatible with any other heart-replacement, but IS fully compatible with the Bio-Booster – both benefits AND drawbacks stack.
Aegis Genetics Boosted Liver
Party longer with the new Replitech Boosted Liver! The new organ not only filters out 98% of alcohol before it reaches the bloodstream, but it works wonders on ingested toxins as well. So whether your night out includes a whiskey binger, taste testing for a diplomat, or eating from a questionable falafel stand, the Boosted Liver has you covered!
Statistics: Resistant to Toxins +8 (Bio-Organ, -10%) 13; Alcohol Tolerance (Bio-Organ, -10%) 1

Statistics: Universal Digestion (Cellulose only, -40%; Bio Replacement -10%) 4;
Umbra Enhanced Lungs
Run farther, dive longer with Umbra’s Enhanced Lungs! The Human lungs are not particularly efficient: utilizing only 17% of inhaled oxygen at any given time, and that’s BEFORE modern toxic air wrecks them! The Enhanced Lungs not only filter out some of the air’s toxins, but increased oxygen exchange improves stamina and lung capacity like never before!
Kevorkian Circulatory Sphincters
The latest in life-saving biotech from Kevorkian, when ever there is a significant drop in blood-pressure to an area, nanoscopic muscles clamp the veins shut and re-route the blood around the affected area. Any flesh below the the wound is cut off from the blood flow, and must be surgically removed and replaced, but the system eliminates shock, blood-poisoning and further blood loss.
Statistics: Temporarily statted up at 5CP; Love the concept, still unsure of how to stat it…
Aegis Genetics Auxiliary Stomach
Looking for a solution to food logistics that doesn’t involve eating hedge-trimmings and tree bark? The Auxiliary Stomach just may be what your looking for! The Axillary Stomach allows you to spend a few hours over-eating high calorie foods, and stores the excess meal in secondary “gut”, releasing it slowly over a week long period. Guess what unit has the higher morale: the guys eating lichen and moss for a week, or the troops that binge on chili-cheese fries before a long mission?
Statistics: Reduced Consumption 4 (Mitigator: Requires Calorie Binge -50%; Bio-Organ -10%) 5
Umbra Bioluminescent Patch
Taking inspiration from one of natures great wonders, the Bioluminescent Patch is a small piece of bioluminescent tissue woven sub-dermally into the body, giving off a soft, non-glare light equivalent to a glowstick.

Want to enjoy a good synth-whiskey but still avoid the affects of curare? No problem, most of our Toxin Screeners are grown to be alcohol tolerant, unless the client personally asks for otherwise!
Statistics: Resistant to Toxins +8 (Wetware -20%) 12
Aegis Genetics Ileocecal Filter
Solved your food logistics but worried about water? We’ve got you covered: the Ileocecal Filter is an artificial organ that coils around the large intestines and removes up to 80% of water from the body’s solid waste products. Go longer without water than ever before! Disclaimer: Many older-model commodes might not be able to dispose of the rock-like pellets produced, Aegis recommends breaking it up with a stick like tool before flushing in most home commodes. Aegis also recommends a soothing ointment available over the counter at most pharmacies to deal with chaffing for the first few months.
Statistics: Reduced Consumption 3 (Water Only, -50%; Bio-Organ, -10%) 4
Umbra “Cat’s Eye” Replacement Eyes
While not as advanced or as subtle as cybereyes, Umbra’s Cat’s Eye replacement eyes are a cheap biological alternative. Made popular with iconic sensie star Kitty Katsumi, Umbra’s Genetics Cat’s Eye replacement eyes are not actual cat’s eyes, but genetically engineered, vat-grown eyes with the striking appearance of a cat’s eye, as well as remarkable night vision. Note: due to the replication of a cat’s ambient light collecting eyes, the Cat’s Eye replacement eyes produce a “back-shine” effect when light is shined directly into them.
Statistics: Night Vision 9 (Bio-organ -10%) 8; Unnatural Feature: Cat-like Eyes (-1)
Kevorkian Trauma Damper
Life is Pain, but that doesn’t mean you just have to accept it! With the new Kevorkian Trauma Damper, specialized nerve clusters implanted at the base of the thalamus help regulate endorphiunes and enkephalins to keep the pain at a more tolerable level.
