CYTHE-R (pronounced Cyther) is a PTA RADP platform Paradigm created by Dr. Akira Akimari (Aia), as a means to defend herself and others from the threat of various animals, and even people. Explicitly CYTHE-R was designed around the Nekomata, and carries an onboard sensory, and nanobe manipulator that is designed to adjust its user to their physiology and ethology in real-time. This gives Aia the strength, speed, durability and predatory traits, of an ancestral panther from which the nekomata evolved. This platform is very useful in a one-on-one combat scenario with nekomata; as well as fleeing from it’s pack-mates should they intervene.
The CYTHE-R platform is only a prototype but the specs have already earned the attention of many scholars and scientist who study big cats like the nekomata. The problem with CYTHE-R is that not just anyone can use it; CYTHE-R boasts impressive capabilities; but also places a great deal of physiological strain on it’s user to maintain those capabilities. If CYTHE-R were mass produced it’s users would need a large calorie regimen followed by intense exercise and mental training. The user of CYTHE-R would need to gorge themselves, eating eight pounds of food one day, fasting for four lather rinse repeat. In respect to this, Aia consumes 28000 calories a business week; this is not for the faint of heart, as not everyone can eat this much. The system is designed around her calorie intake, weight height and stamina, and is self-adjusting. With this said, the profound calorie intake is not only for added energy, but also offset the tremendous strain CYTHE-R places on the paradigm. The added intake takes an estimated 75% of pressure off the nanobes, allowing Aia to maintain the form for five days out of a seven day week; though she is required to rest for two days to avoid overexertion.
CYTHE-R is outfitted with razor sharp nano-thin claws that wrap over curled digits, a tail carrying RTA-real time analysis- systems and one of the only armored paradigms, it’s ideal for rescues and diversionary tactics. CYTHE-R possesses a first of it’s kind BTQ Biped to Quadruped stance ever seen in a paradigm; giving Aia the ability to run on all fours at speeds of thirty five miles-per-hour. CYTHE-R gives Aia a keen sense of smell and a field of vision of 130 degrees, along with excellent depth perception and panoramic view; though this isn‘t a trait found in panthers. CYTHE-R completely changes it’s user, both physically and psychologically, giving Aia short Panther-like hind-legs; and if not for Aia’s resolve and intellect she’d be an irate slobbering beast. CYTHE-R is a valuable though not necessarily viable tool to scientist and corporate pioneers alike, but it’s many requirements, and restrictive uses mean it’s a whole roads away as far as mainstream use is concerned. With this said Aia and her fellow scholars at NITHP are the only group known to have CYTHE-R , with Aia possessing the only prototype in Japan and possibly the world.
