Quickness, The
A pandemic clade of beings who've optimized themselves for maximal reaction time and physical speed and are loosely organized at best. They are often found as a subculture in large urban or arcological developments, working as physical and/or secure couriers for material. There are several subsets, with various goals - speed in human form, speed in visibly augmented human form, raw speed, a balance between speed and carrying capacity, speed and only electronic media transfer, etc.

They are often found spending minimal effort on non-augment capability (cleanliness, nutrition, etc beyond the minimums needed for optimal function), instead focusing almost exclusively on their speed fetishes and goals to support it - upgrading neural links, mapping new areas looking for optimal routes, etc.
