Race: Human

A Synthetic, or Artificial Person, as they prefer to be called, is a synthetically manufactured human being, made of computer components and various artificial organs. In the past, the Geneva Convention prohibited synthetics from being equipped with weapons or uninhibited combat abilities. With the discovery of the parasitic xenomorphs and the attacks by the predatory Yautja alien, this has changed, and synthetics have played a more important role in combat.

The modern synthetic is a highly complex machine: stronger, faster and better co-ordinated than an average human. Despite these differences, military synthetics are also made to be virtually indistinguishable in appearance from a human.

Like the humans, most synthetics are affiliated with the Colonial Marine Corps (CMC) and the Colonial Marine Airborne Regiments (CMAR), which supplies most of their equipment.

Being stronger and faster than humans, they are able to fight in hand to hand combat better. They are also able to withstand more damage before reaching a non-functional state, and they are not affected by pain. However, being artificial constructs, and lacking living body tissue, they have no regenerative process, and are therefore unable to heal.
