    How do you imagine in your head that the little symbiomate creates a total immunity ARM9/BTS9 one-use field around a unit even against like an exploding rocket, etc.

    I like to think that the symbiomates either have some element of psionic power that burns out the creature or that they rapidly convert and expand their entire body into a shield of one-use symbioarmor that quickly covers the body of the fired-upon tohaa operative.

    There was some fluff written for them in the Kaeltar's blurb on the old store, but now it's lost, I guess. The only fluff we have now is in the books

    In my headcanon, they normally look like those Pokemon critters, but basically are a Venom type of a symbiote, enhancing the Symbiont Armor's current capabilities. Once used up, the creature has to separate from the user and flee.

    For you :D

    Note on Vaarso Battlespeak: In the Tohaa Trident, certain support units which employ specific technologies that lie outside the normal realm of tactical operations require designations with double enumeration. According to Neebab Numerology, the number 2 represent dominion, boldness coupled with self-control, and the ability to exert influence. However, the number 10 always reflects difficult situations of ruin and personal loss. Therefore, the meaning of the numerical combination of the Kaeltar (10-2) is dominion, control, and the handling of chaotic situations which have suddenly turned dangerous.

    The Kaeltar Specialists make up the difficult situations unit of the Tohaa Trident. They have been trained in the complex Corahtar discipline to control the SymbioMates who provide vital support by improving units which use symbiotic gear and who are expected to face particularly hostile and bloody resistance. Their primary task is to use their pheromonic tools and abilities to contain and reduce enemy aggression. Meanwhile, with their terrible SymbioBombs, they can increase the offensive potential of troops wearing symbiotic armor. However, the Kaeltar Specialists’ tactical acumen goes beyond this. Because of their highly technical specialization and their particular profile, always intervening in high risk operations, all Kaeltar are high ranking non-commissioned officers with ample experience in the field. For this reason, the Kaeltar always keep a cool head in the midst of chaos and are capable of taking command when the team leader falls and the situation becomes impossible. In a unit such as the Kaeltar Specialists, the question is not whether the mission they’ve been given will go to hell, but rather when it will go to hell and how much it will hurt. It is in this moment that they show what they’re worth. Crammed into their uniforms and surrounded by all that esoteric pheromonic gear, the Kaeltar exude tranquility, a vibrant tranquility, as though beneath there were a latent fire within, a fire which needs only the kindling of disaster in order to overflow and take control.

    I think it's not exactly the thing I had in mind, for in the text I remember there was some reference to cute little creatures Tohaa use as SymbioMates and how they were expendable.

    Dear Melkiah,

    That is so nicely written.
    I love it.
    Can actually see Kaeltar being cool headed specialist calculating risks and waiting for moment his Symbio Mates will be most efficient to use.
