Background

Dedicated mecha-geneticists, the Kumotail Bioengineers are the intellectual aristocracy of the Tohaa Trident. Tohaa technology inexorably combines mechanics and biomedicine, and the Kumotail are the undisputed masters of this synthesised discipline, able to repair anything, or for that matter, anyone.

A deeply spiritual corps of military scientists, they consider the pursuit of bioengineering as the only true path to enlightenment, that to create—and improve upon—nature is a fundamentally virtuous endeavour. Their obsessive sense of purpose drives the Kumotail on; life is a series of challenges to be met. Nothing is trivial, anything is possible.

The Kumotail believe that adversity breeds excellence, so their ranks are forged in the crucible of crisis. Whether on the battlefields of Paradiso, supporting clandestine actions in the Human Sphere, or pursuing their own agendas regardless of where they might lead, Kumotail spend significantly more time in the field than the lab.


Vaarso Battlespeak Notation: In the Tohaa Trident, those corps fulfilling special functions get numeric denominators in the thousands. In the case of the Kumotail, unit 2450, the thousand is completed with two numbers whose symbolism refers to the troop’s special abilities. First is the number 400 which, according to Neebab Numerology, refers to the achievement ofthe perfect structural order. The second is the number 50, symbolizing healing or reparation of objects and people.

Profile: Kumotail Bioengineers are the intellectual aristocracy inside the Tohaa Trident; hyper-qualified technical field operatives, magicians able to repair anything or anyone. Tohaa have united technology and biomedicine in a way so inextricably linked that only a Kumotail is able to face the challenge of a technical-medical intervention in combat. Kumotail Bioengineers are devoted mecha-genetists. They contemplate the study of bioengineering as the highest vocation possible, the only possible path to spirituality, as its purpose is creation and the improvement of Nature. This concentration, obsessive focus of capabilities, forces them to excel, to always make the maximum effort. There is no trivial issue, no irrelevant malfunction, no patient past recovery and this is something every soldier appreciates. Because where Kumotail have acquired their prestige is in the crucible of combat, working side by side with their fellows in the Tohaa Trident. Kumotail Bioengineers are not laboratory rats but combat operatives with true military experience. Their work is developed as much on the frontline as it is in the rearguard. Wherever they are needed, there they go, as they are soldiers at the same time as technicians. For them, the real challenge is to perform their work amidst action, as members of a tactical Triad, under enemy fire, in the worst possible conditions by which they can prove their mastery of the Tohaa fundamental sciences.


In many cultures, spirituality, mechanical engineering, and the aristocracy are radically distinct groups. But in the Tohaa Trident, one group synthesizes all three. Unit designation 2450, the perfect healers. Kumotail Bioengineers. While their aloof and detached nature often leaves a bad taste in other Tohaa’s PheroBlossoms, their mastery of biotechnology is undisputed. Combining medicine, mechanics, and programming into a single discipline, the Kumotail are able to repair anything or anyone, under incredibly adverse conditions. They believe that the one true path to enlightenment is Saatara, to understand, create, and finally improve upon the natural world. Thus, they see the bioengineering as an intrinsically virtuous pursuit, a worthy goal, if anything truly is. As a corps of military scientists, they believe that adversity breeds excellence, and excellence is the only acceptable result. Thus, you won’t often find Kumotail in their labs. They’re out in the field, where the challenge is greatest, and the possibilities limitless.
