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.
The Pteraxii come in two variants:
- Sterylizors: Honed for aggression and armed with Phosphor Torches.
- Skystalkers: Seek out the best vantage points from which to pick off targets with their Flechette Carbines.
