An Exotic Catgirl

"Exotics" is a form of fashion and biosculpting which creates physical forms that range from animal-like in appearance, to something that may look entirely inhuman.[1][2] The Bioexotics® line by Biotechnica is the most popular form of exotics.[3]

Exotic Fashion[]

Bodysculpt jobs that emphasize the alien or inhuman are known as "Exotics." Vat-grown tails, furred skins, hooves, animal-like faces and ears, cats eyes and other semi-human features are the highlights of this style. Exotic fashion is incredibly expensive, time consuming and usually a hobby among only the very rich and very bored. Prices are based on the individual enhancements.

Facial Sculpts combine vat-grown parts such as muzzles, whiskers, animal-like ears, manes and cat eyes with the patient's normal features. There are entire booster gangs based around various animal motifs of this type. Cost: 5,000eb

Tails are grown in vats, using gene bank tissue. They can be furred, tinted, scaled or bare skin. The tail is grafted to the base of the spine and linked to the nervous system by nanotech nerve threaders. Tails are relatively weak, but are still capable of lifting light loads. Cost: 3,000eb.

Hooves, claws and paws can be grafted to replace normal feet and hands. They are not as dexterous as normal digits (-2 to REF), but are occasionally included as part of an Exotic bodysculpt. Cost: 8,000eb.

Skin alteration uses transform DNA to change the structure of the patient's skin. Using tailored DNA, the skin can be induced to grow patterned fur, light scales, or exotic skin colors. The big drawback is a 1 in 10 chance that the graft will mutate and develop into skin cancer. You get to pick the number. Cost: 10,000eb.

Playbeings modify themselves to experience greater sexual pleasure, to say the least.[1]



  • Exotic Animal bodysculpting exists in Cyberpunk because it was entertaining to make someone who disliked furries draw them.[5]
