what a twist.

Nic's prosthetic hand is one of many "Plug N' Play" prosthetics in the setting. Basically, the person who loses the limb (or is missing it from birth) has a socket installed into the stump. This socket is wired to the nervous system, and when you attach a prosthetic, you have complete control over that prosthetic. And the prosthetics are advanced enough that a realistically-functioning replacement hand is fairly cheap! (A stoner trash collector war vet can afford one.) And there are various designs, Nic goes for the robotic hand because it's cool. (And they're easier to convert to Tesla cannons, no pesky synth flesh to peal away.)

I don't know if it's realistic or not, but I'm writing a story where the main character generates electricity and his best friend shoots eye lasers. So if it's not realistic technology, who gives a poop.

That's a big OOF from me. Imagine that your ally is the reason you lost your arm.

That IS rough.
