Mechanics Implants Trait gives the following Augments:

    The character is a servant of the Machine-God, and
    has access to implants beyond other characters.
    The Electro-graft is a small port that is grafted into the
    nervous system. Once a recipient has been properly trained,
    this allows him to interface with machine data ports and
    certain types of data nets. Electro-grafts can take many
    forms, such as skull shunts, finger probes, or spine jacks.
    Electoo Inductors are palm-sized metal skin grafts
    that appear much like tattoos to the uninitiated. The
    electoos are wired into the nervous system, where they
    derive power from the bio-electrical emanations of the
    flesh and the sacred mysteries of the Potenia Coil. They
    can be used to emit or siphon power in many ways.
    A Respirator Unit implant involves tubes, wires, voxgrills,
    or other augmetic parts replacing the neck and
    upper chest. The unit purifies the air supply, granting a
    +20 bonus to resist airborne toxins and gas weapons.
    The respirator unit also contains a vox-synthesiser
    capable of transmitting the voice in a variety of ways.
    The Cyber-mantle is a framework of metal, wires, and
    impulse transmitters bolted onto the spine and lower
    ribcage. As the initiate gains further implants, this
    mantle acts as a sub-dermal anchorage point. Amongst
    some servants of the Omnissiah, this cyber-mantle is
    often referred to as “the true flesh.”
    Cradled within the cyber-mantle is a power unit known as
    the Potentia Coil. This mass can store energy and produce
    various types of fields. Coils come in many types, from
    small crystal stack affairs to bulky electrical galvinators.
    Cranial circuitry is a series of linked processors,
    implants, and cortical circuits that enhances mental
    capacities. Most sit within housing bolted onto the
    skull, whilst others nestle within the brain itself.

Work in progress~ Needs to be re-done.

Horuus is one of the few free thinkers not marked for heresy thanks to growing up a loner. He is introverted, and not likely to be forward with information of any kind, understanding, to the point of paranoia, that letting on that you know to much is dangerous around these blind fanatics. He is alone.

Being born on a Forge-world has given Horuus many opportunities for greater understanding, wile shielding him from thought patterns, of true fanatics, most commonly propagated by the Ecclesiarchy.

His desire to seek knowledge, stems from his disgust of the people around him, and their willing complacency in the face of understanding that brings the potential for incredible self improvement and knowledge that could bring one closer to the heights of the Machine God, and return humanity to the peak it once was. For this, he would be labeled a Malatek, should anyone become aware of his true understanding of things.

Having only a moderate station in life did not bring with it the access to information he desired. His learning stunted, he began to seek alternative methods to learn knowledge that is forbidden to him. The very idea of forbidden knowledge begs the question of why it is forbidden, as knowledge alone is not harmful, only the feelings one has of such knowledge has that power. And if feelings are the reason behind willful ignorance, then there is no sane reason to prevent the momentum of science and discovery. It gnaws at ones mind, like the final ingredient for a godly ambrosia. Still, understanding is a tightly held secret on Forge-worlds, and with it follows either power or fear and contempt. Gaining such information is nigh impossible through conventional means. This pressed Horuus to put great effort into knowing as much about the people around him as possible, lest something of interest was to become known to someone…. anyone.

Horuus is a rather large and stocky wall of muscle and machine. Rather than rely on his natural body, Horuus believes it is more efficient to simply replace the body with superior parts, rather than put the effort in too routinely exercise for substandard gains. There are more important uses for ones time.
