An android is a human-seeming creature created, not born. On Golarion, they rise from strange, alien forges that dot the ruins of Numeria.[1]

Appearance

Androids, also called "tattooed children of the stars" by Numeria's Kellid tribes, are most prominently visually distinguishable from humans by the circuits carved into their skin. The average android is 6 feet tall and weighs about 200 pounds. Their eyes carry a metallic quality, and their bodies are made of artificial oils, polymers, and nanites that mimic blood, flesh, bone, organs, and other organic systems.[citation needed]

Unlike constructs, androids have souls which leave their complex, undecaying artificial bodies about once a century, their shells lying dormant until a new soul enters.[citation needed]

Personality

Androids carry no memories of their creation and have problems understanding emotions.[2]

Nanite Surge

Every 24 hours, an android can cause the nanites within her body to surge and greatly enhance her natural abilities for a very short period of time. When this happens, an android's circuitry-tattoos glow as brightly as a torch.[1]

Paizo has published two major articles on androids: "Ecology of the Android" in Fires of Creation, and "Androids" in People of the Stars.
