Aries are demolitions specialists. What they cannot do with explosives isn’t worth talking about. Highly adaptable, they are designed to be able to seek out and use components around them as well as packaged explosives, and to use their surroundings to maximize any blasts they set. They are masters of precision explosions, able to bend their abilities to assassination using micro-charges should they wish. On the ground in combat, they are often paired with the normally female Virgo classes, and used as backup to the heavier Leo classes.
As was common with the last models from the Zodiac project, the Aries class are built on the Garrison Inc. mark II combat chassis, bone mounts and what remains of the organic skeletal system laced with duerineium alloy. Their joints are replaced with heavy-duty cybernetic constructs and, giving the nature of the class, their organs, arterial pathways and nerve clusters are protected by a subdermal synthmesh to absorb any knocks, blows or to give them protection against any accidental blast injuries.
Johnny, the hero of Aries Revealed, is an Aries class. Like the rest of his class, he is highly adaptable, a fact the fleet did not consider when they made them, and then tried to kill them. Easily avoiding termination, Johnny and another member of his squad escaped, and have been living among the human population for years, where Johnny has discovered a surprising aptitude and ability for dancing and taking his clothes off…
Johnny makes a living on the strip circuits. His most popular routine? The Aries 7000. Bronzed and oiled, he pretends to be the scourge of the universe, one of the deadly and outlawed zodiac cyborgs. But Johnny isn’t really a stripper playing a cyborg. He’s a cyborg playing a stripper.
Milly, a freighter captain, has had a thing for the sexy stripper for months. But when Johnny, the subject of many of her hottest fantasies, asks her out to dinner, she runs. All is not lost, however; a chance encounter yields an Aries 7000 sexbot, hers for a weekend of pleasure.
It seems too good to be true. Sex with the man of her dreams without risking her heart. But Milly’s bot has some secrets…secrets that could save her life when the past returns to haunt her.
