THE CYLONS

The cylons are a robotic race whose aim is to annihalate the life form known as man. The cylons originally were the robotic servants of a reptilian race. But the cylons defeated their former masters in a great civil uprising. From then on out robotic cylon life was to spread. The cylon's soul purpose is to colonize and control the entire universe; eradicating any other life forms that get in their path. Man seems to be the sole lifeform that has been able to resist the cylons thus far.

Cylon Society fairly much follows the typical leader/follower model. The cylon centurian is the backbone of the Cylon war machine. They not only can pilot the various cylon ships in space; they also are quite adapt at handling all the menial tasks that all society's need to have done. There are two types of Cylon Centurian. The standard silver centurian is the lowest in stature in the Cylon society because of its less sophisitcated intellectual systems. Another centurian type known as the Gold Centurian or leader centurian is the most common field commander of all low level operations. Gold Centurians lead Cylon Raider attack ship crews which consist of two of the lesser Silver Centurians and one of the more advanced gold centurians. The gold centurians can be distinguished from the silver by their deeper synthesized voice in addition to their color.

The IL Series is a much more advanced Cylon in terms of intellectual ability. It lacks the physical strength and endurance of the Centurians however. The IL serie are most often serve in advisory roles to higher commanders. Lucifer serves as the IL series advisor to Baltar in the Battlestar Galactica epic. Lucifer illustrates clearly the free initiative nature of the IL's intelligence; this makes the IL series more a group of plotters and opportunists.

The Cylon Supreme Commander is the most advanced Cylon being in existance. It appears more animal like than robotic. This apperance is meant to pay some sort of homage to the cylon's former creators it is believed.
