Special Abilities

Ballistic Proficiency (Ex): When using their wrist-mounted machine guns, they gain +2 to damage, and any critical hit has the DC increased by +2.

Hatred (Ex): The Cylon robots have a built-in hatred for all biological creatures, and as such, they gain a +2 to hit, and +2 damage.

Instill terror (Ex): This model of cylon is intimidating to anyone seeing it. If the unit is engaged in combat, it can choose its current target and attempt to instil stark-raving terror on it. As a swift action, the Cylon is allowed an intimidate check. If the check succeeds, then the target is automatically shaken for 1 round. If the Cylon rolls a natural 20, then the effect will last for 1d4+1 rounds.

Wireless communication (Ex): All of the later model Cylons come with built-in communication gear, which allows them to keep in constant contact with all other Cylons in a 1000 mile radius. They are fully capable of using this link to call for reinforcements or for simple data transfer. This can be jammed, as it is a technological feature.


Created as the ‘next’ generation of Cylon robots, the newer models have a larger chassis and are far more intimidating than the older centurion models. Furthermore, they are also stronger, more agile and far tougher than their predecessors.

They are fully sentient, and are capable of speech, but most of the time they communicate wirelessly with other Cylons, preferring that over synthesized speech. They are also less prone to emotions, although their hatred and anger towards biological life is always simmering just below the surface.

It is very difficult to get these units to engage in dialog. Typically they are out to destroy life, although on the rare occasion they are tasked by commanders and IL units to perform other tasks or missions, which can sometimes require them to speak to the very creatures they despise. Still, they will follow the orders they are programmed to obey.

For the most part, they ignore the older model centurions, although they will work alongside what they consider to be inferior models. They will follow the orders of Commander and IL series units, however.

Being designed for heavy combat, these units are fully capable of using any weapon at hand – although they come with the capability to turn their hands into deadly claws, and they have a wrist-mounted machine gun. Although it is small, it packs a deadly punch.

They are also capable pilots and can run without difficulty, although they are occasionally hampered by rugged or rough terrain. They do not tire, they do not require food or sleep, and their internal power cells can keep them going for hundreds of years without needing to be replaced or recharged.
