Android

Androids are technologically advanced machines modeled after the human form. Originally mindless servants thought of as no more than tools, over time they have developed sentience. They were once considered property, so androids face backlash from flesh-and-blood races who would deny them the rights others enjoy.

Traits

Ability Score Increase. Two different ability scores of your choice increase by 1.

Age. An android activates as an adult. Android bodies can last thousands of years.

Alignment. Androids are rebels, preferring freedom and individual expression over the logical strictures common among sapient machines. Most androids are neutral or chaotic neutral.

Rarity. Rare.

Size. An android is between 5 and 6 feet tall. Your size is Medium.

Speed. Your base walking speed is 30 feet.

Darkvision. You can see in dim light within 60 feet of you as if it were bright light, and in darkness within the same range as if it were dim light. Absent even dim light, this vision is monochromatic.

Living Construct. You are a humanoid, but your constructed nature gives you the following traits.

  • You are immune to disease and have resistance to poison damage. Also, you can add your proficiency bonus to saving throws against being poisoned. If you have proficiency in such a saving throw, your proficiency bonus is doubled against being poisoned.
  • You need not eat, drink, or breathe.
  • You need not sleep, and you don’t suffer the effects of exhaustion from lack of rest. Magic can’t put you to sleep.
  • During a long rest, which you still need, you remain conscious and aware.

Machine Interface. You can communicate with a high-tech machine capable of receiving such communication as if you had telepathy with a range of 20 feet. How the machine responds depends on its capabilities.

Programming. You have proficiency in one skill and one tool.

Tool Integration. You can have two tool sets or one light weapon and one tool set integrated with your limbs, so you cannot drop them and they are always with you. In addition, you add your proficiency bonus to Sleight of Hand attempts you make to hide these objects on you. If you have proficiency in Sleight of Hand, your proficiency bonus is doubled for these purposes.

Languages. You speak, read, and write Common and Code, including its Binary dialect. Androids also like to learn Technobabble.
