 It should be noted that Clothblades are not a proprietary technology, and have many producers and styles of weapon. Corporate designs produced by megacorporations such as [[Solan Starworks|Solan]] are common fare for government agent-provocateurs, while collectors and private citizens may prefer artisan weapons produced in specialized workshops. They are produced in light (daggers and shortswords), medium (one-handed long blades) and heavy (two-handed sword) variants, with certain varieties behind more popular in certain regions or among certain agencies. The [[VIA]] is known to prefer the short style for their supreme concealability. It should be noted that Clothblades are not a proprietary technology, and have many producers and styles of weapon.

-The material is harvested from a genetically engineered variety of barnacle-like cephalopod known as the Hlaraian Arma. This species is renowned for its incredible durability compared to even space-age composites, ability to metabolize metals and integrate them in its construction and usage of electrical fields to harden its outer shell. Among other things, the various properties of this species were later used in the development of [[aerudirn]], the [[omde compound|OMDE compound]] and the [[civw_system|CIVWS]] employed by many VANDR-type craft. The first of these devices however, were the unique belt-blades made by [[planet:hlarai|Hlraraian]] weaponsmiths and geneticists, significant in being the first truly organic weaponry developed by the [[people]] race as a whole.+The material is harvested from a genetically engineered variety of barnacle-like cephalopod known as the Hlaraian Arma.

-Clothblades are unique in that they are partially living weapon systems with the ability to emphatically read the intent and neural impulses of their user. This is incredibly easy for 'naturally' empathic or telepathic species such as the [[people]], though other races may need symbiotic or cybernetic implants to increase their brainwave emissions to levels that can be picked up by the blade. +Clothblades are unique in that they are partially living weapon systems with the ability to emphatically read the intent and neural impulses of their user.

 They are often jokingly referred to as better judges of character than most people because of the means by which they are operated. The system is not entirely controlled by thought, instead driven by the will and intentions of the wielder, following the flow of their voluntary muscles and their more unrestrained instinctive and subconscious desires. The blade would only harden if the swordsman struck with the intent to use it as a blade, and would not do so if they wished to strike but did not wish to cut their target. A person unfettered by strong emotional turmoil (or who is not distracted by other matters) will generally have an easier attempt of controlling such a weapon outside of swordfights. They are often jokingly referred to as better judges of character than most people because of the means by which they are operated.
