|Maverick Hunter X, one of the most famous Reploids of all time.|
where from 5 to 10 feet tall and weigh anywhere from 150 to 2,000 pounds depending on their design. Reploids have no means of sexual reproduction and artificially produce "offspring". Reploids can identify as either male, female, or nothing at all. Interestingly, all Reploids share two physical characteristics; armor plating on the entire body below the head, and audio-sensory panels where ears would normally be on a human. As they are artifical being, their skin can be any color they have the dye or paint for. The same could be said for their hair, if they happen to have any.
Form and Function
In the early stages of their creation, Reploids were solely built for singular tasks with their designs reflecting that purpose. For instance; a Reploid constructed for heavy lifting may look wildly different than one built for nursing, maritime tasks, etc... The resulting variety of design options proved just how capable a Reploid could be if designed right. As time went on, many Reploids were made simply to live life as they see fit. They would usually opt for more human appearances, in stark contrast to their more mechanical or beastly numbers.
The Story So Far
Reploids were made as both a replacement to their robotic predecessors and as the next evolution of the human race. Many issues arose from this, causing decades of almost Earth ending wars. As it stands today, Reploids are simply one race trying to coexist with everyone else, though there are notable extremist groups.
War, Peace, etc...
Reploids bear even greater resembelance to their creators than was once thought. Just as a human might become a danger to themselves or others, so do Reploids. A dangerous Reploid is called a "Maverick". A Reploid could become a Maverick for a number of reasons, whether is being viruses, errors, reprogramming or their own free will. A common trait among Mavericks is their desire to prove their superiority over other races through incredibly harmful acts. Some go so far as to wage war and try to exterminate other races to this end. With Mavericks comes Maverick Hunters, altruistic Reploids dedicated to disposing of Mavericks and keeping the peace. Maverick Hunters tend to excel in combat, having access to weapons and equipment a normal Reploid wouldn't.
A Reploid can name themselves just about anything they want, but traditional naming conventions do exist in Reploid Society.
Humanoid Reploids tend to have only a single name and stick to the theme of music.
Humanoid: Rock, Roll, Bass, Treble, Alouette, Riff, Scale, Jam, Noodle, Jazz, Blues, Drum, etc...
Non-Humanoid Reploids they tend to choose a descriptor followed by the name of the being they were based on.
Non-Humanoid: Chill Penguin, Aztec Falcon, Armored Armadillo, Magma Dragoon, Jet Stingray, Neon Tiger, Blast Hornet, Tech Kraken, etc...
