Pteraxii are winged Skitarii that are capable of flight and serve as ideal support units for their brethren in battle. They are the cousins of Sicarian Skitarii.[1]

Overview

One of the many specialized castes of Skitarii available to the Mechanicum, the Pteraxii are optimized for instinctive reacion and agility. Their reflexes are accentuated by paring back elements of cognition that impede their primary function. Implanted with additional lumb-stumps known as scapuli superior on their backs, a flight pack of thrusters and reactive life surfaces is connected to them. The flight packs become part of the Pteraxii, who serve in several roles.[4]

The Pteraxii come in two variants:

Pteraxii can also be equipped with Pteraxii Talons.[3]
