Muscle Strapping adds layer upon layer of rack-grown muscle. These muscles are farmed in shops and buildings where they are pumped up on electrodes and fed with synthetic blood and PIM. After a few years of perfecting the straps, it became popular to splice fingers together forming a “claw” to support the heavier hand muscle. This led to replacing bone with metal alloys, which made super-claws.
Claws became a dying fad and are now seen as passé, mostly sported by the old-school thugs and lifers recently released from jail due to the city budget crisis.
