In the world of PSO, each of the twelve character types is one of three species: Human, Newman, or Android. With a profession of either Hunter, Ranger, or Force. While members of each profession start out with the same equipment, the attributes of each character vary according to their species.
Humans - Balanced race, with strong potential in power, accuracy, and techniques. Humans are unable to naturally regenerate HP or TP, and cannot use traps.
Newmans - Genetically modified race evolved from humans. Newmans excel at casting techniques rather than engaging in melee or ranged combat. They naturally regenerate TP.
Androids - Unable to use techniques, but can use traps. In Ultimate difficulty, Androids receive a 30% bonus to Blizzard, Arrest, Chaos, and King's series weapons. Devil's and Demon's weapons reduce enemy HP by 25% and 45% respectively, instead of by 50% and 75%. They naturally regenerate HP.
