Automaton (自動人形) is one of the heteromorphic races in YGGDRASIL.

Appearance

Automatons appear to have the body of a machine.[1] According to Ainz, Automatons were programmed not to display even the slightest hint of emotions from their face and eyes.

Abilities

Automatons were a race who are immune to poison as part of their racial immunities. Among the kind of weapons they can be equipped in battle, Automatons like CZ2128 possessed the capabilities of using firearms and firing it at their foes from afar. They could even manipulate parts of their machine body for other miscellaneous purposes.
