The cetus, named after a mythological sea monster, was designed for deep sea activity and is capable of operating under extreme pressure and cold. It is a favored morph for use in the undersea domains of Ceres and Europa. Capable of moving quickly underwater, the morph can also operate outside of water in the atmospheric portion of habitats. Cetus morphs are slightly smaller than arachnoids.

Ruqinzhe: Pretty sure that was a sabotage campaign by Belt Bot Industries. Guess who they’re backed by?
Pivo: Let me guess. The Hidden Concern?
Ruqinzhe: Spot on.
