Sbot's are Security Robots are recognised by their blue colour. When it embarked on its mission, Beagle had hundreds of security robots designed to keep internal order during emergencies. Most sbots were destroyed during the mutiny, but about 80 remain. All are identical. They look like powerful, seven-foot tall metal-armoured men, but their blued metal surface is actually a thick sheath of duralloy armour stretched over a sturdy duralloy frame. Its interior is tightly packed with shock-cushioned components. Sbots are generally found only within the City of the Gods. They only heed programming in alien battle language.

All sbots have an arsenal of built-in weapons, including a hand blaster, a riot stick, and a needler. Unless they are attacked with weapons capable of doing them damage, sbots do not normally try to kill. Instead, they use their riot sticks to get their opponent to obey instructions. Most sbots will have weapon related feats for the riot stick. If an opponent fails to heed the riot stick, they use their needlers. Only if their own existence is threatened or they have special programming will they use their blasters.

Damage Reduction (Su): A sbot has damage reduction of 20/magic.
