Felinoid (Biomorph) Originally a very obvious hack by early Genehackers and biosculptors, the Felinoid became its own robust morph-line, an alternative to the Bouncer for those who prefer not to deal with microgravity or prehensile feet. The full felinoid has enhanced genetics for hyperflexibility, enhanced senses, the tail and grip pads in the hands and feet to grip almost any surface, but retains the oxygen supply of the Bouncer. Felinoids also come with the appropriate features, with slim, lithe builds, cosmetically furred and enlarged ears (which are still on the side of the head), claws, pointed teeth and eyes with slit pupils. They also contain the genetics to purr from the Pleasure Pod. Users of Felinoids usually report an increase in inquisitiveness, impulse to react to fast moving objects and to work their claws into soft materials. A common upgrade to the Felinoid called the "Tigress" works as a cheap security/infiltration upgrade, adding armor, chameleon skin and upgrades to cyberclaws - as well as any number of other appropriate enhancements. Numerous cosmetic variants which display different ears and tails also exist. Implants: Basic Biomods, Basic Mesh Inserts, Claws, Cortical Stack, Enhanced Hearing, Enhanced Smell, Enhanced Vision, Grip Pads, Oxygen Reserve, Prehensile Tail Movement Rate: Walker (4/20) Aptitude Maximum: 30 Durability: 35 Wound Threshold: 7 Advantages: +5 COO, +5 REF, Limber (1) trait CP Cost: 30 Credit Cost: Expensive

(This was one of the first morphs I designed using Transhuman's morph creation rules. Feature creep is an obvious issue with this sort of thing, so I wanted to make a simple design goal. To that end, the idea that some genehackers would obviously design the optimal catgirl/kemonomimi morph made for a very simple idea. After some work, and commentary, Oxygen Reserve was added because it doesn't change the end-cost of the morph, and then more clearly makes it an alternative to the micro-grav oriented Bouncer for people who prefer to climb on things rather than be free-floating)
