Strong on the outside

His personality – even his psyche – seemed to present itself in an “exoskeleton” kind of way.

His armored exterior was formed with a substance that prevented “dessication” and a “sensory interface with the environment” (Rf. wikipedia), and while he looked calm and controlled on the outside – evidenced by hair that was tightly in place with gel, a tie whose knot did not move from the Adam’s apple, and a smile whose presence was unrelated to circumstance – his insides were soft and mushy, susceptible to corruption and even deterioration were it not for his exterior shield. He lacked any internal structure for formation and definition, and he was underdeveloped, given his close relation to the invertebrates and the phylum of arthropods.
