Delving through O.T’s top-secret files reveals X-dog Einen 8 to be of a similar design to Bryce 7, with the same physiological prowess, albeit in a slimmer, wilder Husker package. Weighing in at a stone lighter than Bryce 7, Einen has less muscular oomph, but is all chest and arms – a real gymnast. He’s equally at home spinning on the rings and high bar in the gym as he is kicking in the heads of Mold-infected automatons. His metabolic rate is reduced compared to his predecessor, so he doesn’t exhibit the same overheating problems as Bryce, though nor does he mend as quickly.
Einen’s creator Sasuke thinks (although he would never dream of saying so to his face) that the eighth X-dog is perhaps the pinnacle of the project’s achievements so far. Strong, stable, brave and skilled, Einen 08 has no obvious flaws or quirks to point to, and fulfils his function as a Mold-hunter extraordinaire.
On a more relatable note, Einen is addicted to sports, hologames and (incongruently to some) classical music. He bores easy, doesn’t like being told what to do and mistrusts strangers. Though proud he has little concept of vanity, hardly noticing what he looks like in the mirror despite his striking appearance. In a similar vein, perhaps, he also hates bath time.
