An Augment is a cybernetically-enhanced human and a type of cyborg. However, the risk of the surgery that augments a person is high. Augment technology is utilized by the Resistance in the Dark Fate timeline.
An Augment possesses superhuman strength and agility.
An Augment is powered by a thorium reactor. Under his/her skin, there is a secondary artificial skin that acts as armor, protecting the bones and vital organs. He/she can withstand shock from collision, including falling from a certain altitude, such as from a bridge to the ground.
An Augment is able to connect and even access data from an electronic device, such as a cellphone, simply via direct touch to its inner circuit board.
An Augment's metabolism makes him/her need to take medical injections with a specific formula when "overheated" after intense battle for a few minutes to recover their strength and energy, otherwise they will "crash", "burn up", and die. In addition, water and ice can cool off their bodies during overheating periods.
When "overheating", an Augment needs a special injection composed of anti-compulsive medication, sodium polystyrene sulfonate, insulin, benzodiazepine, and possibly other drugs with a specific formula and it should be injected in the lower back or thigh.
