I saw that in the annoucement notes that the Mankind Female will be redrawn, so I am wondering will Syntis be redrawn too (and not to mention perhaps the other races also).
Right now, Syntis looks more like Bastion from Overwatch.
So, I am thinking: Syntis is a combo word that is short for “Synthetic Tissue”.
If anyone has seen the movie iRobot, then that is more or less how I’d imagine Syntis to be - whereby they look like robots with a humanoid face. Whereby in StarCraft II, the robot that you interact with is like the ones in iRobot except it has synthetic skin on the face area.
