These cyber creatures appear sluggish and passive as they cling to their masters or clamber around on them. Much of their energy actually goes into the force field generators replacing most of their innards. Their cortical arrays are specifically conditioned to continually control and manipulate these generators’ output, greatly enhancing the protective devices effectiveness.
