Polygnomos is a octopus uplift, of a line of octopus uplifts originally created on Stareve but with additional capabilities added on Fiske. Polynomos’ gender is not known to most others (and will be treated as unknown, but masculine pronouns will be used). He can read and write English and Chinese, but his native language is octopus sign-coloration language, usually rendered in written form as a Chinese characters. He has no hearing and cannot speak, but can communicate well using translation devices. He has a limited ability to survive out of water, his gills adapted for breathing air somewhat, though moisture loss remains a problem: he is able to stay out of water for up to 1 hour without harm; beyond that point his constitution deteriorates 1 point per minute. He is skilled at remote operations and can control nearby device remotely through ultrasonic signal utilizing an implanted brain link coupled to an ultrasonic transducer which function in either air or water. He has filter implants in his eyes for laser eye protection.

Polygnomos frequently travels within an non-sentient robot body which resembles a large male human (football lineman physique). The body is armored non-active plasteel, covered by a layer of active pseudo-skin which can change color or become transparent. This robotic body can pass as human to casual observation, but its artificiality becomes obvious with close observation.

Polygnomos spent a significant portion of his life in the military, leaving at the rank of Major to become a partner in Delivery Services. His main function is in operations planning, though he has been known to engage in the field operations when required. His current social status is Upper Middle Class.
