33-S boomer killed while trying to escape from space station Genaros.

Body part which, for the heroes of BGC, is specially strengthened and can resist hammer-blow punches from boomers, whiplash injury from falls, penetration by battlemover claws and even bullets.

21st century military bloc comprising Japan, the nations of the EU and the United States.
Cerebral implants that when used in conjunction with special drugs allow human minds to interface directly with computer networks. Fashionable during the cyborgisation craze of the 2020s, they fell out of favour by the early 2030s, not least because they rendered the user vulnerable to illegal (but lethal) intrusion countermeasures electronics. More advanced user interfaces meant that non-augmented hackers (good ones, anyway) could operate just as effectively with much less risk and without the need for narcotics.

Or 'police' to the man on the street. The 'N' stands for 'normal' - regular cops are understandably reluctant to use this term. There is a certain amount of rivalry between N Police and the ADP, the former feeling that the latter get more than their fair share of funding and media attention. Plus they get to fire off weapons and destroy property with impunity. No fair!
ADP officer. Part of Leon's team in the assault on the Genom Building in 2028.
