The surprising number of transhumans who chose to sleeve in Titan-adapted hulder morphs encouraged designers on Profunda to develop a Titan-adapted ﬂyer. While the sturdy hulder morph is designed for nomadic herders, the ariel morph is designed by people who wish to survive by hunting. Individuals sleeved in the ariel morph can hunt and eat Titanian caribou, but they most often eat the smaller rabbit-like creatures that Profunda designers have also recently designed to live on Titan. Ariel morphs have exotic-looking heads similar to those of hulder morphs, but they also possess sleek and streamlined humanoid bodies with four limbs and a pair of bat-like wings.
These morphs have also been used by a few daring transhumans to explore the upper cloud layers of both Saturn and Uranus.

Scent.In.Hell: Here’s your Extreme Camping Morph, or at least the Flying Carnivore variant model. Who the Hell gets wet about roughing it on Titan, anyway?
Psychscaper: Some people want to experience everything, or maybe they want to feel like they’ve conquered anything nature can throw at them?
Sava: Yeah, I know some exhumans that talk that way. I told ‘em to call me when they conquered the surface of the sun.
Skinwalker: While this was one of the weirder sleeving experiences I’ve had, it was certainly interesting. Flying through Titan’s methane clouds, living in the hydrocarbon wilds … it wasn’t right, but the morph felt so smooth that it wasn’t wrong either. Tearing hunks out of cryorabbits to survive actually just felt appropriate. Those Profundan genehackers know what they’re doing.
