Phnx is a secretive group of hackers and tech junkies that raid ships and cities in the Exo to accumulate the most advanced technology in the system. They are feared by Sovereign since Phnx’s technological capabilities often surpasses that of the Sovereign, and Phnx has a history of hacking into highly classified Sovereign databases. Members of Phnx practice cybernetic-synthesis, in which they attempt to become more and more indistinguishable from machine by replacing body parts with enhancement robotic appendages, and installing cerebral implants that improve intelligence and connectivity to everything and anything that is digital or cybernetic.
