The most notable feature of Canoptek Wraiths is its dimensional destabilisation matrix, which was originally intended to be used to reach into machines and repair them without removing their casing and components. However, these matrixes can also be used to great effect when dealing with the upstart life forms of the galaxy. When in combat, these matrixes allow the wraith to phase its claws and tendrils into the opponent, completely wrecking him from inside. In a battlefield, canoptek wraiths can also use their matrixes to move across any kind of terrain without pausing by phasing out.

This probe mechanoids are programmed to report back to their Canoptek Spyder controllers via interstitial interface, and when orders are received, the Wraith carries them out without delay. Be it commanded to strike against an intruder, or conduct repairs in the heart of a collapsing tomb, the Wraith will follow instructions to completion, or to the termination of its function. Though their primary function is to watch over their sleeping masters, Wraiths are often drafted into armies to serve as advance scouts.

However, these matrixes can also be used to great effect when dealing with the upstart life forms of the galaxy.
