Website:His entry at the Appleseed wiki
Briareos is from the Appleseed franchise, and is the property of Masamune Shirow (the author of the manga), and Sony Pictures. He appears here solely for the purpose of role-playing in [community profile] milliways_bar, from which no profit whatsoever is being made.

Canon will center mostly on Appleseed: Alpha at this point, with future stories coming from any future movies and/or the 2004 Appleseed movie, and Appleseed: Ex Machina. Some elements from the original manga may show as well as I read them.

TL;DR: Briareos is a combat cyborg with lots of different things he can do.

Briareos is a cyborg with the majority of his original body having been replaced. He still has an organic brain (now located in his chest), circulatory, and digestive systems (though his cybernetic systems provide the majority of what nutritional needs he still requires; i.e. I can't figure out how he would eat and get rid of the waste).

He stands about 6'5" (1.83 meters) to the top of his head or 7' (2.13 meters) to the top of his "ears". His build is like that of a heavy weight boxer and he is surprisingly agile, despite his size.

He has eight eyes mounted on his head, four in his face (the large sensor in the middle is actually his nose), two at the bases of his "rabbit ear" sensors, facing backward, and two at the tips, which allow him to safely look around corners. They have a variety of functions; from low light, to heat sensor, to magnifying, to shape or facial recognition, and are adaptable with new programing. They also can give him a near 360 degree field of vision.

He has a variety of "hearing" capabilities; including sound, radio signals, digital broadcasts, and the like. As with his optics, new programs can alter or enhance his other sensory capabilities.

His "nose" is capable of detecting chemical weapons, explosives and other scent signatures.

His cybernetics controller, the Hecatonchires system, is named after the hundred-handed giants from Greek mythology. It is capable of controlling dozens of limbs or other cyborg bodies independently from one another, with no additional strain on the user. In the manga, it is pointed out that a cyborg equipped with the Hecatonchires system is able to fully control an entire aircraft carrier on his own.

When his systems are running at their optimal, he can flip an armored Humvee, leap fast enough that a normal human might pass out from the G forces, jump across great distances (at least the width of a New York City street), and move fast enough to dodge a missile fired from a close range.

His body is built with combat in mind. The flexible "skin" is a kevlar weave which can resist most small caliber fire arms, and yet it can still radiate warmth like living skin and has a sense of touch. He also has armored plates that can withstand higher caliber firearms, though not all. The combat field is a crazy place with a wide variety of ammo and not everything can be stopped. I'm thinking of his flexible skin as a police issue kevlar vest, while the armored plates are more like the trauma plates worn by military personal. (Here are a couple of reference images; his front and his back.)

He has also shown a variety of other modifications, which I will update as he gets more access to technology. For instance in Appleseed: Ex Machina, he has a ultrasonic device planted in his elbows with which he used to shatter ballistic glass. He doesn't have this yet, but will in the future.

He has lead a life of conflict and is an exceptional fighter, whether in close quarters combat (CQC), melee (at least with knives, nightsticks, and other more "modern" weapons), or a wide variety of firearms. In addition to all his practical experience, he also has a vast array of combat history and tactics programed into his cybernetic brain, which his organic brain can access.
