The most common CyberGenus, Scanners develop special receptors that allow them to perceive and interpret brainwaves, effectively reading thoughts and emotions. Their nervous systems are also hardwired, granting them the ability to boost their reflexes, and even to release an electrical “static wave attack” through their hands.
