This Cylon model may wield her drop-dead looks as a weapon, but she also shows true affection for others and is powerfully devoted to the Cylons' singular deity. Beyond that, her numerous physical bodies each possess varying personalities and roles. One was Caprica Six — whose seduction of Baltar enabled the Cylon destruction of the 12 Colonies.
Sharon believed she was a well-liked Raptor pilot (callsign "Boomer") until her true identity as a Cylon infiltrator was revealed. That copy of Sharon was killed on the Galactica (and resurrected on Caprica).
Although a Cavil once posed as a member of the Colonial clergy, this Cylon model actually tends to show little respect for religion. Instead, the Cavils are ruthlessly pragmatic, cynical and even sadistic. They also have a dark sense of humor.
Leoben speaks the language of fate, destiny and prophecy — sometimes with eerie accuracy — but he has also been established to be an expert liar and manipulator.
Sleek and deadly, the Raider is the primary Interceptor of the Cylon fleet, designed to use its speed and agility to perform rapid strikes and chase down slower, less maneuverable targets. Like all Cylon vessels, it is a biomechanical construct commanded by a 'pilot mind' that literally becomes the ship.
As an Interceptor, the Raider can be equipped with more engine systems than other strike craft, increasing its already impressive performance.
A support and communications craft capable of processing vast quantities of tactical data and disrupting enemy systems with combinations of viral attack and jamming, the Heavy Raider's oversized hull can also transport several Centurions or humanoid Cylons.
As a Command ship, the Heavy Raider can be equipped with more computer systems than other strike craft, increasing its electronic warfare and support capabilities.
A heavy strike craft hull recovered from the base of the mysterious Cylons who abandoned this sector at some point in the past. Although some delicate reconfiguration is required for full compatibility, the Marauder's high density hull materials provide far greater protection than standard Cylon strike craft.
As an Assault ship, the Marauder can be equipped with more hull systems than other strike craft, further increasing its toughness and defensive capabilities.
The first of three abandoned escort designs that the Cylon fleet has so far managed to recover and return to active status, the Banshee is a fast attack ship built for speed and maneuverability, capable of supporting friendly strike craft or rapid response to enemy attacks.
As an Interceptor, the Banshee can be equipped with more engine systems than other escorts, increasing its already impressive performance.
Only a small number of Spectre escort hulls have been recovered by the Cylon Fleet, and bringing them back into active service requires complex recoding and interface configuration to make full use of their advanced processing and emitter nexuses. The result, however, is a powerful electronic warfare and support platform.
As a Command ship, the Spectre can be equipped with more computer systems than other escorts, increasing its electronic warfare and support capabilities.
Angular and bulky, the recovered Wraith hulls appear to have been influenced by human design principles in what may have been some form of experimental project. High density hull plating and structural reinforcements make it extremely effective in close escort and guard duties.
As an Assault ship, the Wraith can be equipped with more hull systems than other escorts, further increasing its toughness and defensive capabilities.
Recently discovered in a code-locked section of the 47 Tartalon base, the Liche appears to have been a further evolution of the design principles of the Spectre. Instead of focusing on electronic support and warfare, however, this fast and powerful ship is capable of being configured for a variety of tactical applications.
As a Multi-role attack ship, the Liche can be equipped with a more balanced selection of Hull, Engine and Computer systems than other escorts.
Incredibly swift for a ship of its size, the recovered Fenrir hulls have proved to be among the most complex and advanced designs left behind by the mysterious Cylons who abandoned this sector at some point in the past. Returning them to active service requires a massive investment of time and resources, but the Fenrir's combination of speed and firepower is highly effective.
As a Heavy Interceptor, the Fenrir can be equipped with more engine systems than other line ships, increasing its already impressive performance.
Obviously intended for use as a battlefield command and control platform, the recovered Hel class hulls are honeycombed with data processing, sensor and emitter plexuses that rival the capabilities of a Basestar hybrid.
As a Heavy Command vessel, the Hel can be equipped with more computer systems than other line ships, increasing its electronic warfare and support capabilities.
The largest ship class so far recovered by the Cylon Fleet, the Jormung's massive wedge-shaped hull is thickly armored and heavily braced, offering superior protection from enemy fire and allowing the ship to act as a mobile fortress on both offensive and defensive operations.
As a Heavy Assault vessel, the Jormung can be equipped with more hull systems than other line ships, further increasing its toughness and defensive capabilities.
The few Nidhogg class hulls so far recovered have all suffered extensive damage in what appears to have been the last major engagement in this sector before it was abandoned. Although they require massive investment to bring back into service, these formidable warships are capable of being configured for a variety of tactical applications and have few weaknesses.
As a Multi-role heavy attack vessel, the Nidhogg can be equipped with a more balanced selection of Hull, Engine and Computer systems than other line ships.
