  • Prior to the fall of the Patriots in 2014, 31 individuals, including Raiden, ended up undergoing cybernetic surgeries, which resulted in their left forearms being made into memory drives, as part of cyborg-related experiments by the group. Raiden himself would go on to aid in taking out the Patriots, while the other thirty would join the PMCs World Marshal and Desperado. The content was stored on a 3D state drive, which could render images and data from various cyborgs into 3D holograms via light impacting it in a specific way. This resulted in a much faster processing speed and an increased storage capacity than regular solid-state-drives, to the extent that the standard 3D holographic storage, a 2-inch square cube of lithium niobate crystal can store 4-terabytes of data, and was highly resilient to damage due to 3D state drives uploading its bit data via an optical diffractor spread across the medium rather than localizing it in one spot. The drive itself, however, will sometimes end up wiped prior to a cyborg's self-destruct protocol being initiated if killed during combat situations in order to ensure that the enemy couldn't retrieve their data, in case the left arm survived both the resulting explosion itself and the shockwave, as the cyborgs themselves often contained classified data that suppliers wanted to keep classified, and damage will sometimes result in the data contained inside to be corrupted, requiring a quarantine and retrieval upwards of several weeks. The short list of information that could be stored in the cyborgs left hands included energy consumption, damage level, intracranial and blood pressure, blood sugar, other vitals, GPS history, speed and acceleration data, radio and optical readings, recorded computations from the internal expert battle-support system, time-stamped readings of distortion and accelerations gauges whenever the body was impacted, stresses applied to the CNT muscle fibers in all four limbs, as well as any localized breakdowns, power consumption rates, remaining battery charges type and amount of weaponry used, Codec logs and wavelengths, voice transcripts, encryption methods, and more. The cyborgs IDs were also located inside the arm, which also allowed them to act as effectively ID cards for entry and exit from secure locations. In this case, the arms also allow a certain amount of clearance depending on the clearance level of the pre-loaded ID. Their arms could also be uploaded as videologs for the purposes of downloading the data into Unmanned Gears, and their left arms also possessed a USB cable for this purpose. The arm's storage memory data was directly connected to the cranial nerves, which was required for the cyborg to record everything that they saw, heard, and the like. As such, when removed, the cyborg's hippocampus was stimulated, resulting in unpleasant effects such as memory loss and intense flashbacks, thus making it inadvisable for the cyborg to voluntarily remove their left arms unless it is deemed absolutely necessary. Accessibility was largely the reason why the left arm was chosen to be a memory drive, as the arm could be removed voluntarily or can be procured easily in the event that it was forcibly removed by an enemy. Besides memory storage, the left arms can also be used to transfer duties to another soldier when changing shifts. The interior of the left arms vary: Generally, cyborg left hands have two clasps inside that allow it to plug in to the rest of the body. In Raiden's standard cyborg body's case in 2018, however, the arm interior was largely biomechanical in nature, due to his having a human-like cyborg body underneath.
