hi guys i think this is a fantastic idea so i will start to add mine on. it may take a while though i have had quite a few in my time so some i will have to remake.
Race:manufactured genetic hybrid (silicon based helix rather than the normal carbon, to allow the crossing of so many DNA structures without being unstable.) hybrid:feline (black-cat), reptile (bearded dragon ), Draconian(unknown species, possibly extraterrestrial) aka Scarens
Appearance:For the most part Mendel stays in the nude or short shorts due to his clothes constantly getting burned off. He is slender partially feline looking, however scales can clearly be seen in an elongated hair like shape, upon close inspection the scales appear to be transparent but appear to change color in stress or at will.(big changes in color cause extreme pain if done too quickly. further more complex patterns are not easy and will cause much discomfort to hold.) 4 small horns can be clearly seen studded on his forehead, his tail long, thin and prehensile with a sharp scaly flair at the tip. and claws long, retractable, and incredibly dense and sharp.

Personality:while being perfectly sound of mind Mendel maintains a pre-programmed thought process with excellent multitasking skills which allows him to veer slightly from his objectives and perform more adequately (organic/electrical mapping of the brain during developement were added to allow for addaptive and hidden behavioral patterns and technical skills, however he must have first learned and performed the task to get a full grasp of it, this also keeps him from having an information overload and becoming a drooling infantile creature or worse vegetable), he will more than likely come across as inquisitive and somewhat detached, but do not be fooled he is just taking it all in for the time being. Otherwise he acts like a normal person, however provoking him is quite ill-advised. As per his programming he takes orders very well.(he rarely blinks, and continuously scans the room he is in.)
Combat:That all depends on how well fed he is. if fed well his higher brain functions make him a formidable opponent in both close-range and at a distance, for example he will throw molten rocks and metal to keep his enemy at bay, so he can get close enough to subdue them with his heat glands. however when starved he is arguably more dangerous. often times resorting to camouflage disorientation and pure carnage, Mendel will get in close and very easily rip his prey to shreds and ,in most cases when starved, will proceed to eat the remains bones and all. Did i mention he can also go subterranean.
physiology:Though all of the augmentations are quite impressive, Mendel can be damaged just as easily as anyone else. His skin can easily be penetrated by sharp implements, his blood clots like all others, and he can most definitely receive concussions. His beneficial traits include, highly flexible/durable bones, horns, teeth and nails(very dense for cutting) as well as quite durable muscle tissue (both from being silicon based, and this only means his muscles can't get pulled as easily.) Heat glands are located in his chest, on each side, which enable him to project and focus massive amounts of heat through his palms(draconian side, highest recorded temp. was about 1605 degrees C from previous failed clones. If conditions are right his physiology hints that he could very-well make it over 2000 C, and of course he is fireproof.) This unfortunately requires a large amount of protein, calcium, iron and magnesium which are portioned out into a sort of health protein bar, without it he can still cause severe heat exhaustion if provoked. And as an added bonus to being silicon based he is able to walk in the vacuum of space for about 30 minutes or so.(he most definitely does not like the cold in space though) Luckily he will suffocate before he freezes for sure. However this does not mean he can't be cut or receive injury he is only a little sturdier.
i'll try and get more up soon will have to go hunting to find my old ones
