Case has been a very good cyberspace-cowboy, so Armitage, who can afford the best doctors, repairs his nervous system in exchange for a job he would do for him in cyberspace. In that operation, Case is also implanted a new pancreas, which makes him unable to absorb drugs like alcohol and pills. In this way Case becomes dependent on Armitage. With his new partner Molly, a physically improved woman with artificial eyes and razor-blades in her fingers, he carries out the two jobs for Armitage.
In the real world of Neuromancer, most of its members are cloned, cryogenetically frozen or have medically altered DNAs.
The fact that these technologies are very expensive shows the incredible richness of the society. Before Armitage was brought into existence the original person in his body was Colonel Willis Corto.
Since the Turing-police, who shall prevent AIs from getting to smart, is too weak to handle Wintermute, the password is the only obstacle for the unification of Wintermute and Neuromancer. Unexpectedly the implanted psyche "Armitage" becomes unstable and Corto more and more regains control over his body.
Consequently Wintermute kills him. From that moment Case and Molly work for Wintermute. Nearly every thinkable technology for that purpose is invented and accessible for the persons who are wealthy enough.
The upgrading of the body is called augmentation and there are augmentations on five different levels.
Starting from simple drugs at the first level, which for example can inhibit pain effectively, the augmentations at the highest level transcend to human body completely.

She fumbled through the contents of the suit's kangaroo pocket and withdrew a sheet of plastic studded with a rainbow of dermadisks. She selected three and thumbed them hard against her left wrist, over the veins.
Six thousand micrograms of endorphin analog came down on the pain like a hammer, shattering it. Her back arched convulsively. Pink waves of warmth lapped up her thighs. She sighed and slowly relaxed. Besides the traditional way of injection, smoking and swallowing the drug, the possibility exists of taking drugs by using plasters called dermadisks or just derms.
Drugs are body augmentations on a first low level. Drugs can be used, to perform actions without caring pain and tiredness. They just influence the awareness and the control of it for a short time. Nearly everyone is cosmetically improved and many people possess natural or technical implants to improve their abilities. Molly for example has movable razor-blades beneath her fingernails and wears fixed glasses, which touch up her vision and display additional information in her field of view.
This operation made it necessary to re-route her tear ducts back into her mouth. That has the slight side effect that she has to spit, when she cries.
At the moment you can regard Dix as a person lock up in a box for shoes or even something smaller. Book Editor s: David Seed Search for more papers by this author.
