In the second season anime, Bernardo gives Beatrice a towel before she breaks through a brick wall (to find explosives). This indicates to me that the girls are susceptible to "bloody knuckles" (or palm in this case) when hitting a hard, abrasive surface.

CI78, I didn't know you were a teacher, cool .
Anyway, Provided the needle point was sharp enough, a lot of force wouldn't be required. Test it for yourself. Get the blunt end of a sqrewdriver (handle) and and push it on your hand, get the sharp end of same screwdriver and push it into your hand also using equall force. Which end hurt more? The pointy. This is because the blunt end has a greater surface are to spread the force over, while the sharp end has a very small surface area by comparison, so the force is more concertrated (HAHA! I knew there was a reason I'm taking physics!). I agree with Anninell that the needle could go through, since it has a very, very small surface area over which rto spread the force, making it superconcentrate.

All this stuff's got me wondering, are there some injuries that the cyborgs would be able to get fixed by a regular docrtor? Thier injuries only being able to be reapaired back at the Agency, which is in Rome, seems like a design flaw. What if they are in a neighboring country, they would have to get flown all the way back to rome. Dunno, just seems a bit inconveniant and inpractical.

I dunno mate, mean: do you really want to send the multi-million Euro piece of top-secret, deep-black clandestine technology, the discovery of which could probably get Italy black-listed by most of the westernized world or at least cause a major foreign-policy issue to a regular, foreign GP? I mean really?

I know my own take on the SWA tends to be one of the more paranoid ones going, but I doubt you'd ever see Monty walk into a regular doctor's practice, even if they could help her.

I guess what I'm saying is that, all things considered, only being able to fix them back in Rome probably isn't a major issue. There are other constraints which would prevent them going to a regular doctor anyway.

I was thinking more on the situation where there's an an all out war or something, maybe they're somehwere like the middle east, and having them flown all the way back to Italy would be a bit of a waste of resources, however, the injury still lowers thier combat effectiveness. Or perhaps in an army base that already knows that they are cyborgs (Like the Foereign Legion in one of my Fics), so that they can get fixed there. Saves time, money, and possibly lives.
I wasn't thinking that one of 'em scraped thier knee or something and the local GP is closer than the Agency. Just that is it possible for some injuries to be repaired with the tools that the GP, or even a hospitol would have avalible, rather than going back to Rome.
And besides, they could just kill the doc after anyway. Jean seems to have no issues with killing blokes that could give the Agency away, Roballo is proof of that, I mean, he was Jean's frined for Christ's sake, and... BANG! (Maybe not that dramatic, but you get the point)

Within my universe, the SWA does have field medics. When Kara was shot in the gut on a mission, the field medic on hand (Licia Cerutti) was able to keep her stable until she could be airlifted back to Rome.

That would most definately solve the problem. I kinda portray the cyborgs in my Fics as Machine god like death machines. When I had the cyborgs in Iraq, Victoria got shot in the chest by an AP round (The stock of her rifle and Kevlar vest slowed it enough to be non-leathal) shot a few times with an MG, had a lenthy piece of tank stuck in her leg after being to close to a Javelin strike, a mild concusion from same Javelin strike, got bandaged up, shot some more with an assault rifle, and then she blacked out on the way back to base from blood loss. She only awoke three days later in a hospitol bed at the Agency, with some 'heavy duty' limbs. And she's only a Second Gen, think of the carnage the First's can go through. I think I may be over stating thier abilities .

Again, though it's not something I'd use in my own writings (I tend to take the view that there's no such thing as a "friend" in the international community, meerly countries you happen to be nice to as their adgenda currently coincides with yours), that's certainly a more plausible. I that situation though, I'd be inclined to go with Kisk's idea that the SWA would dispatch field medics with its personnel and cyborg-assets.

You wouldn't happen to read Schlock Mercenary would you? Seriously, that's almost exactly like the maxim "The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy, nothing more".

But how long would these medics take to arrive if they can arrive, is what my problem is with that. I'm not saying it's a bad idea, 'cause it's actually a pretty good one. I'm also not saying that the problem can be permanantly fixed without the Agency's equipment. What I'm getting at is temporary repairs, not replacing damaged organs. Just enough to tide the cyborg over till medics can arrive.

I shipped the girls out to Iraq in one of my stories. My narrative implies that certain elements of the Coalition forces were aware of their presence, and possessed the facilities to provide them with aid and support. Take note, however, that the events of my stories occur in a world where the SWA is but one of several nations who operate cyborgs, with most of these nations working in concert.

I dunno, I guess a regular doctor/medic could do a blood transfusion (keeping in mind previous conversation), patch a bullet wound in muscle, maybe fix a dislocated limb, that sort of thing. Hell, I've had Jethro superglue Monty closed before now. Administering drugs of any form may be a bit more dubious... if only because the girls are already pumped up on God knows what; adding something else without prior knowledge may not be such a good plan, particularly as concentrated doses of the conditioning compound seem to be used in the place of morphine (which would suggest the latter either doesn't react well to the conditioning drug or is rendered ineffective).

I concur with Nacht. In my universe all first world nations have cybernetic technologies, mostly use in secret. But some nations want to steal such technologies from other nations to see where they are in the technologies. Its a given though that the first world nations have cybernetic systems, it is not that they are the same or even compatible. Even in Japan, different companies have different designs in cybernetics.

I've just left cyborgs to Italy, but they do or rather, will (as I am yet to write it) work with various other nations who have thier own little dirty secrets; Robots, Arteficial intelegences, Gauss/Rail weapons, Nano technology, Mechs, etc. And everyone sort of knows about the cyborgs anyway, same way as teh Padania do, probably some intern on Facebook or Twitter.

Super glue? I take it there wasn't any duct tape handy, that shit fixes everything.

Well they were on a Russian transport plane at the time, so superglue and duct tape are part of the standard maintinence kit... however duct would have been to visible and I think Monty may have objected. Also, one of the early roles of superglue/CA glue was as a surgical glue used to tak things in place or hold a wound shut untill it could be attended to properly. Why do you think it's so damn good at sticking human body parts to things? Using industrial-grade glue probably isn't a fantastic solution but if the situation requires... hell, I've superglued myself up once or twice. Stings like crazy mind.

Field medics sound cool. The SWA helps the general public with their prosthetics which I magine are an inferior version of what the girls use. I guess those are only repair/replace, but when Jean smacked Rico, I wonder if the blood stopped on it's own like in a healing process or did she have to get repaired even after what is relativey minor damage?

Almost exactly like the Ernesto/Pia story.

As for Padania know, they dont know. Only Christiano and his minions know because they observed what was in the feild and took action against them. If Christaino told Dante that the government was using bullet proof child super soldiers to go after them, Dante's response would be, "Bullet proof? Hmmmm... Let see them stand up to anti-aircraft fire!" (insert evil cackle here)

Beatrice wasn't that bullet proof then, not even able to stop a measly 20mm explosive round designed primarily to shoot tanks and choppers with naught but her chest muscles . I am much disapointed in her. If it had been a 40mm Depleted Urainium round (or several hundred considering they are fired out of gattling guns), I would have understood. But to beatrice's credit, she did carry a missile all by herself.
Sarcasm aside, are regular humans too soft a target for an explosive round to, you know, explode on?

I don't see any issue with international travel either... and lets be honest: I'd be being a little hypocritical if I did Razz... just so long as the logistical issues are taken care of as well, whether that be by sending a large team with support, short duration deployments (go, get the job done and get out, before any cyborg tics become an issue), or through a means like I have with J+M... whatever works.

As to what nations get which toys, in my own head (and thereby in my own fanfiction universe) I tend to view Italy as being particularly advanced down the cyborg/bio-engineering route; an oddity in an otherwise relatively normal world. Sure, the States has their nano-tech, etc. but the Italians are the only ones who have managed to get all the bits working in one system... and I'm sure there's plenty willing to have a stab at stealing said system. That's how I tend to play it anyway.

I don't doubt that people want to stell things, even within my own 'verse. Hell, I've got a whole mercenary army based around that fact that they can steel every ones dirty little secrets, they got the lot, but do not sell any of it so as to maintain a monopoly on the global mercenary market. They also have the hate of every 'advanced' nation out there, at least for a while. I actually have the SWA doing some of the thieving, since each model (merc 'borg/SWA 'borg/ whoever else has stolen the tech/ 'borg) has it's advantages and disadvanteges
And I'd given the Americans Rail/Gauss tech instead of nano. I haven't decided who gets nano yet, maybe the Germans?
And you guys got me on the whole medic thing, I can't find anymore holes. I surrender.

Guys, becauseof some actual thoughts i want to turn this here to slightly different direction.

In the manga I've seen Triela enjoying a glass of wine. Now my question is, how do our cyborgs react on alcohol?

In my vision I see Triela convincing Emilie on a trip to taste a glass of red wine and Emi on the next morning has headache after she was lightly drunken the evening before because of that new experience (she never before tasted any littlest drop alcohol).

Well, in my own fiction I tend to take the view that they process alcohol in approximately the same manner as a regular human, with the associated varying tolerances for the stuff. Monty's certainly not adverse to a drink or two, and since she drinks resonably regularly presumably her tollerance is higher than a cyborg who doesn't.

I don't have any good medical backing for this, it's just how I like to play my stories. Razz

That said: I guess it would probably depend on how the liver was treated during the girls' conversion to cyborgs. If they still have a biological liver I assume the processing of alcohol is similar to that of a human (key word here: assume. I've not done much reading into how the body processes alcohol... bar the usual practical research Razz ). If its an artificial liver then it might be different, and if the liver were artificial then it would make sense to have it process toxins (including alcohol) as quickly as possible, faster than a normal human liver if possible.

Personally I tend to keep the girls' cyborg advantages to the basics: strength, motorskills/reactions/speed, bullet resistence, vision, hearing... maybe smell (not so much Monty), so the liver operates as per human-normal. However that's just because I like to make their lives more difficult in the interests of the story. Others will probably have different views and play it differently.

I took the artificial route in regards to their liver and the girls process alcohol, drugs, and other substances very fast. So they can still get drunk they just need to have a lot of alcohol in a short period of time.

On two occasions we see Triela drinking wine;

being that Hillshire is not exactly a reckless guy I'm sure he's consulted the cyborg engineers before allowing her to have it.

Personally, I don't subscribe to the notion that the cyborgs have any greater tolerance to intoxicants than a normal 10-17 year old.

Even an artificial liver likely has it's limits and I expect the Medical Branch did not have alcohol processing in mind as the primary function.

i actually based the idea of faster alcohol metabolism on the thought that the doctors would want certain substances processed faster than normal and those substances are also broken down in the same way that alcohol is. So it was more of an after thought than part of the design process.

Exactly.

The doctors belatedly discover the unconsidered alcohol-related effects when Triela drinks several SWA employees under the table on a dare, but are unable to do anything to rectify this without undoing their intended end-results with regards to poisoning negation.

In my universe cyborgs still have their liver since its an organ that is yet to be made artificial yet. So they process alcohol like any other person.

But in my universe, we have RU-22, the government version of RU-21 pills, which actually absorbs alcohol and helps the body recover from its poisons. Unlike the public version which only eases a hangover.

I'd never really thought about the how of how the cyborgs get
drunk. I do have one of my OCs, Mercedes as an alcoholic, and she
basically drinks that often that she almost has a natural imunity to
whiskey. S'pose she would probably have an arteficial liver (or a
regular one that's on the verge of death). With my other OC, Victoria,
it's a given that her liver would be arteficial since everything from
her chest below had to be reconstructed, though she still gets drunk
normally.
Basically what I'm trying to say and that I only just
figured out now, is that they have arteficial livers that process
alcohol like a reular liver. Don't know if it will be any help though.
P.S. Red wine tastes like puke.

Isn't that becuase as people get older, thier taste buds change so that bitter tastes are more... appetising (for lack of a better word). That's how old poeple can stand blue vein cheese. You may want to verify this with a reputable source; I am known to be wrong at times.

No you are correct we do lose the ability to taste and smell some what as we age. However there are also psycological and rational factors involved as well when we stop drinking like a bunch of frat boys.

Since I am (very) late to this party. I swill state that many of these questions arose with me and with others I asked around again and in a bout of creative( or careless from another point of view) I went with discerning the technologies in the SWA as being either of techno-organic origin or the more realistic bio-synthetic models. It even sparked a fic in me that I have yet to finish. sweat

With further information listed in the OC Wiki it basically boils down to...

Techno-organic= A substance or process meant to seamlessly repair and/or replace natural biologic function.

Bio-synthetic= A substance or process meant to emulate a biologic function requiring repair and/or replacement.

Another primary difference between the two being that the techno-organic process is a one-time process assimilating the body's own natural repair and maintenance mechanisms and possibly improving them as well. Bio-synthetic on the other hand would be something similar too, but not quite organic meaning that the organ(s) would need repair, maintenance, and eventual periodic replacement.

To toss my two cents into this cool conversation, I imagine that budgets dictate a lot therefore if it's more feasible to develop a pill for alcohol control than to create a complex organ, then the Agency will do what is more economically expedient. (of course to do that means the SWA expects the girls to drink at some point on their missions, I guess?) Hmm...

I swill state that many of these questions arose with me and with others I asked around again and in a bout of creative( or careless from another point of view) I went with discerning the technologies in the SWA as being either of techno-organic origin or the more realistic bio-synthetic models. It even sparked a fic in me that I have yet to finish.

With further information listed in the OC Wiki it basically boils down to...

Techno-organic= A substance or process meant to seamlessly repair and/or replace natural biologic function.

Bio-synthetic= A substance or process meant to emulate a biologic function requiring repair and/or replacement.

Another primary difference between the two being that the techno-organic process is a one-time process assimilating the body's own natural repair and maintenance mechanisms and possibly improving them as well. Bio-synthetic on the other hand would be something similar too, but not quite organic meaning that the organ(s) would need repair, maintenance, and eventual periodic replacement.

But also, I believe (and I could be wrong... it's happened before Razz ) fortunatley one of the easier organs to transplant.
You are correct on that, Alfisti.

It also helps that the liver regenerates it self so a full sized transplant is not needed. This also allows live donors even though we only have 1

Correct. It takes a couple of months for a liver to regrow to its original size. But during this time, one cant take alcohol. A friend of mine had cancer on one of his liver lobes, so it was cut out, and the rest grew back without incident. But he was a heavy drinker and when the liver 80% regrown, he took one too many drinks. He died the way he wanted: sitting down watching TV with a beer in his hand (and 9 empties on the floor, after having returned from bar hopping and who knows how many drinks he had then...). Joe, you're being missed by a lot of friends.

I remember some schlock diet doctor professing about eating in a certain way. His more famous quote, "You are what you eat. But who wants to grow up a wiener? Or a Twinkie?" He died about 2 years later in his late 30s. In seeing this, I'll stay with my high cholesterol, high caffeine, moderate alcohol, wiener and Twinkie diet. I'm seem to be doing fine with it.

No. Unless the problems lies in that inside her limbs still contain her original bones. It is in the long bones of the body (and in the Pelvis) that contains the bone marrow and the source of her Leukemia.

But where are several solutions of cures for that cancer. Which one they take is on them.

Chapter 95 is a good example how much normal human the 2nd gens really are.
I think with the 1st gens there aren't such issues since they are alot more artificial.
