Sawback centers most thought around control. If he is not in a controlled environment, what factors are controlled? What can he control? What is out of his control? Who or what controls what he does not? What does he need to control? How can he control it? After control comes security. Once Sawback has a situation where he wants it, how does he maintain it? Even while relaxing, Sawback constantly considers the maintenance of the environment he is around. However, the environment he is in can not always be a controlled factor, thus Sawback also is constantly analyzing the individuals in an environment as well as the environment itself. Often, he will disregard all of an environment and seek to control one person due to their influence. Sometimes, it is not so easy. Sawback must often make judgement calls regarding what he has prioritized, thus adding to the quick-paced depth of his thought. Although all of this seems like a rendition of his skills, it is indeed an explanation of his persona. Due to his training in espionage and interrogation, Sawback does not have a core personality, instead creating one for whatever situation he is in and uses the aforementioned criteria to do so.
Sawback was created by a PMC stationed in France. Their goal was to create a 'super soldier' (as is the goal of most PMC's) with a special nanocyte interface. The DNA of each experiment was constructed from scratch to create individuals with no physical defaults that could perform at maximum human capabilities. Furthermore, vestigial organs and body functions, such as the appendix, were altered to allow the body to host a symbiotic synthesized nanocyte (SSN). The nanocytes created a biosynthetic cybernetic interface (BCI) within the individual that replaced the altered organs and bodily functions to meld itself perfectly with the body. The new system was called Project GREYMATTER and the French PMC hoped it would immediately outmode all systems in use today. Sawback was one of the first successful experiments involved in Project GREYMATTER; only six of the two-hundred subjects survived the SSN injections. Sawback was never given a name, only called CC023 in reference to being the 23rd out of two-hundred. He was raised to be a prototype alongside his brethren - an example of what this experiment could lead to. Although the success rate was low, the results were incredible. In sixteen years of training, Sawback was leaner and stronger than French Spec OP's Commandos. He spoke nine language and had mastered all virtual training sessions regarding espionage. He was an excellent combat strategist, but most impressive of all was his ability to understand the human mind, which most of his skill (including strategy) derived from. Before their debut, however, the second half of the experiment was shown. The six were split up and surgically altered. Sawback had his entire right arm removed and replaced with a biosynthetic arm that uplinked with his BCI to make the most out of his half-cybernetic nature. The six reunited afterwards and plotted their escape. While in the middle of a training session, CC072 uplinked himself with all six of his brothers, disconnected their BCI's from the host network and then the six fought their way out of the complex. To his knowledge, Sawback lost two brothers in the escape that day, but gained his freedom. Afterwards, Sawback worked as a mercenary where he specialized in espionage and bladed weaponry. His weapon of choice was often a simple sawback machete due to its utility. The oddity of this choice earned him his nickname, Sawback.
Sawback often uses little-to-no equipment in general. For several missions, he has used nothing but disposable plastic handguns and tuxedos. This go around, Integra has providedhim a little more than his regular armament. Sawback has been given three major sets of equipment in addition to his tuxedo. The first is a full-body Octosuit underneath his tuxedo. By default, the suit covers his face and skin, but is set to mimic their regular texture. Integra also went an extra step in providing a special interactive octocamo glove for Sawback's right forearm. In conjunction with the octocamo suit, Sawback's has been given a tuxedo using similar Octocamo technology that can replicate almost any suit and a mask that can replicate the physical appearance of anyone that Sawback has seen using his BCI. The tuxedo is not a full octocamo suit as microkelvar enhancements and infrared pathers reduced its adaptability. The second set of equipment is a full-plastic combat system located on his back below his shoulders form-fit to his lumbar and concealed by special tailoring of his tuxedo. Sawback has two identical bullpup handguns that can either be fired as pistols or submachine guns. These guns can use almost any common handgun ammunition by scanning it and modifying the chamber and barrel to the appropriate sizes. The default ammunition for these weapons are hollow-point, hardened plastics designed almost identically to a 5.7×28mm cartridge. The process of the scan and modification takes roughly five seconds, meaning that in an combat situation, it is paramount that he attempts to use the same ammunition. Lastly, this array of plastics comes with a set amount of potent plastic explosive with remote detonator. The amount of explosive is highly limited, but a huge asset. Lastly, Sawback has been given a concealed utility belt featuring small smoke bombs, flashbangs and thin sheets of acid that are activated by aqueous solution. A personal item added is a telescoping machete designed with metal substitutes and, of course, a sawback.
More notably is the exoskeleton and combat system that Sawback possessed prior his escape from France. The exoskeleton itself is a highly advanced nano-level microweave of enhanced kelvar materials and titanium-dipped plates. Additionally, the cloth beneath the outer layer of armor hardens into an extremely rigid state when an electrical current of a specific voltage is passed through it. Such a case would be if a blade passed through a plate as the armor is designed to harden to prevent the stab. Furthermore, the armor itself is designed for full flexibility by impeding agility, however, due to the nature of Sawback's training, the reduction to agility only hinders him slightly. The most outer layer of his stealth suit is designed to prevent common types of detection from seeing him, such as radar, sonar and infared, however, the suit does not made him perfectly invisible. The combat system granted by the suit also gives a set of three guns on his back that withdraw to a more compact form. Each gun is capable of using munition of different calibers that are common for its purpose; this capabilities was added due to the personal limitations of munitions carried on the person for the rifles. Each rifle is effectively of a similar design aesthetically, but sized down. The larger rifle fires most types of large shells used for long-range combat and armor piercing. The medium-sized rifle uses an extended-stock design and fires automatic or semi-automatic munitions meant for assault rifles. The smallest gun is a bullpup designed handgun that can house up to two different munitions simultaneously and has two barrels capable of firing the widest variety of munitions. The top barrel is designed for smaller munitions and is meant to be fired as a submachine gun whereas the underbarrel is designed for larger caliber rounds to be fired as single shots. Each gun scans the bullet it is firing, measuring its size, determining its caliber and adjusting the barrel to fit it before firing. This process takes roughly five seconds, thus even though the rifle may use almost any time of common munition, it is best they use the same type consecutively if possible. Lastly, the suit has extendable claws using razor-sharp diamond-edged blades.

As part of Project GREYMATTER, one could claim that Sawback is half cybernetic. His right arm is an entire biosynthetic appendage regulated by the nanocytes in his blood. Almost every system and organ in his body is melded with nanocytes performing different roles. The appendix acts as the central brain for the nanocytes, similar to the relationship the brain stem has with the central nervous system. Nanocytes are biosynthesized meaning that Sawback makes them using proteins, however, they do not deteriorate or replicate like regular cells. Instead, the nanocytes periodically charge at nodes throughout the body using the appendix as a biochemical battery where glucose is converted into usable energy. Whereas red blood cells, erythrocytes, are used to carry oxygen to muscle tissue, specialized nanocytes are used for the same purpose in his right arm. The skin growing over hi right arm is the most biosynthetic part of his body; nanocytes designed to replicate the functions of skin and actual skin connect perfectly and separate when needed. All of his hand is a large, synthetic skin that retracts for the use of tools (such as access ports) from his fingers. His hand also acts as a rail gun, capable of firing a single blast of kinetic energy at the cost of the 97% of his internal battery. Furthermore, his hand is also a kind of multi-tool, not unlike a leatherman. All of his functions are controlled by his brain and altered appendix in tandem due to a perfect merger of his central nervous system and BCI. The true extent of this is unknown.

-Sawback can eat and digest massive amounts of food to build up energy for his nanocytes.
-Sawback can create one-time-use nanocytes from his right arm that will accelerate the cell division of other cells it comes in contact with until it runs out of energy, afterwards it breaks down into an amino acid and enzyme solution that most bodies can tolerate.
-Sawback can use his nanocytes to manipulate his pheromone levels, which he has used to his advantage during espionage.
