– Cybersix to herself
Cybersix, alternatively spelt Cyber 6, is the main protagonist of the Cybersix series, and is voiced by Cathy Weseluck. She lives in the South American city of Meridiana, seeking refuge away from her evil creator, Doctor Von Reichter. By day she lives a normal life as a male literature teacher at a local high school, named Adrian Seidelman, and by night she fights against the creations sent by Dr. Von Reichter and his young successor, José.
Cybersix has an athletic build, as she is a natural acrobat. She has short black hair, which she styles differently as her Cybersix and Adrian personas. As her Cybersix persona, she keeps her hair brushed forward. She also wears a black leather suit, complete with a hat, a large red lined cape, high heels and cropped gloves. And in her Adrian persona she dresses for her job as a teacher, with her hair slicked back and donning large eye glasses, her attire consists of an oversized blue suit, which she wears with a white collar shirt, orange tie, and brown shoes. And she sometimes wears a brown trenchcoat outdoors, seemingly without the blue jacket.
Cybersix is usually a cheerful person, trying to look on the positive side of things. However, her emotions sometimes can get the best of her. During class she has a no nonsense attitude towards the antics of Lori Anderson, while conversely, fellow teacher Lucas Amato takes her jokes lightly.
Cybersix is the result of a genetic experiment conducted by Von Reichter some time after World War II. He had created 5000 Cybers in all, and when the children had turned 9 year old, Von Reichter had discovered the children were disobedient due to an error in their genetics, so he had all 4998 Cybers destroyed. Cyber 29's brain was implanted into a panther's body, while Cybersix had been able to escape with the help of a slave. She escaped Von Reichter again and left for the city of Meridiana, and along they way she adopted the identity of a young boy who had died in a car crash, in order to live a normal life in society. She got an education and later got a job as a literature teacher at the local delinquent high school. When her Sustanence supply ran out, she attacked a female Techno in order to survive. She had since then adopted a new identity as a Cyber who stalks the night, so as to protect her everyday identity. By night she fights the creations of her creator, and is soon aided by her surviving brother, now named Data 7.
Cybersix's history is left largely unexplained in the show. When Cybersix was young, she and her brother, Cyber 29, were playing outside at a jungle, and her brother had died from falling off a cliff. Since then, Cybersix had moved to Meridiana when she got a job as a literature teacher.
Cybersix and Lori Anderson only encountered one and other three times throughout the animated series. When Lori finds out where Adrian lives, she overhears a conversation between Cybersix and Data 7. She spies on them through the peephole and because she couldn't see the latter, Lori naturally assumes that the person she is talking to is Adrian and is obviously hurt, developing a bitter jealousy of Cybersix. Cybersix in turn is pretty indifferent to Lori as she worries about worse things. After Jose kidnaps Lori for stumbling on his Drill Tank plans, Cybersix goes in to rescue her. While still bitter at her, for her supposed involvement with Adrian, Lori helps Cybersix in defeating Jose, by sabotaging his Drill Tank's computer program, prompting him to use it manually. Cybersix, then goes as far as setting the Tank on fire with Jose in it. An actions she normally doesn't do directly, showing that Jose thoroughly angered her for harming one of her students from her civilian identity. The third and final time they meet one and other, is before she confronts Dr. Von Reichter. She let's Lori know that Cybersix and Adrian are one and the same and even let's her keep the glasses from her Adrian persona. This proves that on some level, Cybersix does care about Lori. Lori then goes with Luke to try to find Cybersix, only to see Von Reichter's lab blow up. Lori and Lucas are extremely devastated, because Cybersix may have died in the explosion and unlike Lucas, Lori has no hint that Cybersix may still be alive.
Cybersix met Julian through her Adrian Seidelman persona, when Julian stole his wallet. Using her powers and knowledge of the streets, she caught up to him assuring him that she means no harm and even gives him the wallet (only wanting the picture of her and Cyber 29 back.) However feeling guilty Julian returns the wallet which was the first stepping stone, to turning his life around. Cybersix met Julian in her true persona when the latter's boss was involved in a hostile take over, courtesy of Jose and Data 7. It was her rescue of Julian that helped jog Data 7's memory of his previous life as Cyber-29.
Cybersix and Julian's overall relationship is that of surrogate brother and sister. Due to her guilt of failing to save Cyber-29, she sees Julian as her chance to redeem herself. Julian in turn regards her as a best friend. However in recent episodes, their relationship sort of upgrades to Surrogate mother and son, as Cybersix is determined to keep Julian out of harm's way in her later missions. Julian who is forever grateful of his life being saved, risks his own safety to help her out, whether she likes it or not. In Final Confrontation, he was devastated upon witnessing the living bomb's explosion, as he instinctively believed that Cybersix may have died in it.
- Like all of Dr. Von Reichter 's creations, Cybersix needs Sustenance.
