Since I’d rather not bracket in an IC thread, putting this here.
EVE Source specifies that warclones always have access to backups, because warclones, unlike capsuleers, have a primary personality file on a central databank that is always saved and kept up to date. As this information is behind a paywall due to having to buy EVE Source, it’s easily and understandably missed, so sharing here for you.
“A supersoldier who is accidentally abandoned on a planet for five years is in dire circumstances, because the life span of a mercenary clone’s body is apparently no longer than that. He will die and lose five years of his life. Still, he will return, because his core personality data is held in the vast databanks of his corporation’s infrastructure. He may even have been assumed killed in action and reanimated into a new clone the day after being marooned, a rather undesirable eventuality that would end up essentially creating a second copy of the individual soldier.”
