 Ceres is a German Sheppard and Wolf mix breed that has been cyberneticly enhanced and has extensive muscle and bone weaves for strength and speed.  Ceres is female but infertile.  She suffered traumatic injuries from an incident with a vehicle whereupon she lost her right forelimb at the shoulder and the right side of the skull was severely damaged resulting in the loss her eye and socket. Due to her rapid recovery from emergency surgery, Ceres appeared healthy and alert despite the disfiguring injuries. Unclaimed, she remained in a kennel that was unwilling to put the intelligent seeming animal down.    Jason Fox, leader of an Elite Combat unit for Elysian called “The Wolfpack”, discovered her on a mission while spending time covertly back on Earth.  He took Ceres in and had Elysian’s cyber-doctors build a new leg and eye for her.  Initially the eye was a security camera feed but later they were able to tie it back to Ceres’s optic nerve and retrain her on seeing with the new piece.  Muscle and Bone lacing nicknamed “Weaves” were introduced to increase Ceres’s strength to compensate for the new limb.  A side benefit of these weaves was increased speed as well. There is a weapon hardpoint on the exposed metal shoulder and another one was integrated into the body on the opposing shoulder to account for balance issues if equipment were added.   Ceres took to training well and moved from being a common pet to a Combat K9 and later having the weapons attached at control of Ceres’s impulses. She has an automated “Kennel” that arms and reloads her. Ceres is not a remote control Cyberpred and freely roams wherever she chooses. Often she can be found where-ever Jason presently calls “Home” or where he has chosen her to guard.   Ceres is not the only pet taken in by the Wolfpack, nor the only animal they have seen cyberneticly enhanced.
