|A geth platform from Mass Effect.|
In Mass Effect lore, the geth are a collective consciousness of millions upon millions of sentient programs downloaded into mobile "platforms", or bodies, which they use to interact with biological species. Mass Effect 2 introduced a unique geth named Legion who could exist apart from the geth collective and retain his higher cognitive functions, an "individual" even though he was comprised of a staggering amount of software cooperating as a whole. In Pathfinder, we're presenting the geth individual as a geth without the unique geth subtype, thereby depriving geth players of a dependency on their hive mind networking. While the geth are a powerful PC race (the construct type affords a plethora of immunities) they represent a fun and unique thematic opportunity to explore with a willing GM.
Maybe your geth in Iron Gods could be a stow-away from the now crashed Silver Mount, awakening in a scrap heap in Numeria without memory of where it came from and needing to become an adventurer to uncover the truth about their origins.
