If you haven't guessed it by now, Briareos used to be a human, but is now embodied as a cyborg, with only a quarter of his original biological body intact. Originally a native of Old Earth, Malcolm Davies grew up in New York's historic Harlem residential neighborhood. As a youth, Malcolm always had aspirations of becoming one of NYC's finest, and eventually a first class detective.
For the most part he was successful in achieving his childhood dreams, entering the police force at the age of 20, eventually advancing to the rank of lieutenant in just 4 years, he was well on the path of becoming a top-class detective until the events that transpired in Manhattan's grand central station.
An IED bomb was set to detonate on a tanker outside the grand central station. Malcolm was successfully able to locate the bomb and evacuate the area, however he was unable to disarm the bomb which ultimately claimed much of his body in the impending explosion. Malcolm's actions were soon recognized by the media and he was heralded as an American hero. At the same time, the united states government was looking into cybernetic implant programs for wounded vets and police officers. Naturally, Malcolm was at the top of the list of candidates for this type of program. He was re-made stronger, faster, better and given a new name Briareos, after the heavily-armed giant Briareus the Vigorous
of greek mythos. The rest is history.
Luckily, much of his brain and other "valued" parts were preserved following the explosions. Currently:
Lawman, Jack-of-All TradesDescription /Abilities:
Briareos is a prime example of cybernetic technology in Appleseed. Although his body is almost completely artificial, he suffers little loss in humanity. His outer skin is elastic, capable of feeling sensation, and the temperature can be adjusted to the cyborg's preferences. Appearance-wise. Malcolm is a rather tall and muscular African-American male with short black hair and brown eyes.
