Consists of scissored thighs, shock-absorbing A-rod skeletal assembly, repeated external B-plates and feet. Designed like most parts of the Rhys, to be split in two using structol based fluid locking systems.
Able to shift from the function of bipedal leg, to arm, engine pod, quadrapedal leg and even reverse-joint leg, making it a truly multi-role system without the need for complex mechanisms and joints thanks to the application of very simple 'unlocked' joints and Structol musculature which sits in these joint pools, powering their motion as both a kind of rotary joint and as an extended muscle or tendon, meaning this complexity is actually surprisingly simple and rugged in application.
Primary functions include the plasma based propulsion system in the rod-skeletal assembly, which also double as shock-absorbency due to their unique layout. They can also 'condense' along with a shift of the hip joints and shift posture, allowing the Rhys to fit into spaces typically impossible for powered-frames or drastically reduce its vertical profile.
In addition, when curled up as a shoulder, it can 'unfurl' responding with whatever equipment is mounted into the two Manus manipulators in the foot without the secondary limb (hanging beneath as an arm) ceasing its current operation, allowing the unit to multi-task.
B-Plates include an integrated C3R assembly across each unit which can be partially ejected for emergency rectification or ejected entirely in case of emergency. Said B-plates also include mounting points for heavier external outer-plating or specialised mission equipment.
