The Cybermen are a race of cyborgs, they are humans who have been 'upgraded', and wear a suit of armour. They have no emotions and their only human organ is the brain inside the helmet. They can comunicate with each other through a wireless communication system, and transfer fills from the Cyber-Leader to another appointed Leader. Cybermen believe that humans are inperfect, and therefore need to be "upgraded". Most of them have no emotions but in Doomsday, Yvonne Hartman leader of Torchwood had been upgraded to Cyberform, but held her emotions, and can be seen crying as she trys to right her wrongs, this could be proof that the cyberman technology cannot wipe out all emotions. In Torchwood Episode four, it is stated that they wiped out all of the cybermen, although there was the cyberwoman still active in their basement at the time.
Cybermen are robotic bodies, silver in colour, with no showing human parts, like some Cyborgs would have. The human brain is within thier Hemlet, they have solid black looking eyes, and limited movement because of their robotic shape. The Cyberwomans appearance is similiar, but not completely metal, has more flesh showing, with a little less on the limited movements also.
Cybermen have a number of weapons, most often used one is the Wrist Blasters. These are retractable weapons within the forearm of all cybermen, it fires a red particle discharge that kills humans instantly, but they cannot used against Daleks because of thier forcefields. Another weapon was the Electric attack cybermen could do when touching someone, this was a blue electric looking attack that killed humans instantly.
Other weapons, which havent been seen recently are Cyber-bomb, which ahere capable of destroying a planet, and was seen in episodes during The Fifth Doctor's term.
See: Main ArticleEpisode Four of Torchwood was the first showing of a female looking Cyberman, which got called a Cyberwoman. Other females which got changed into cybermen was called Cybermen. This Cyberwoman was Lisa Hallet, 26 years of age and she was Ianto's Ex Girlfriend who used to work in Torchwood one before the downfall of it. At first she is seen hooked up to machines that seem to be keeping her alive, and she is only a partial conversion, with skin areas still showing.
