Some ability cards refer to friendly figure such as "MHD-19: Bacta Radiator" and "Loku: Combat Spotter." Does friendly figure apply to the character with the ability, i.e. MHD-19 and Loku in my two examples. Does MHD-19 get healed and can Loku shoot without regard for figures in the way of line of sight?

What I'm asking is in contrast to a card that says "another friendly figure" where it is clear it doesn't include the owner of the ability.

Here's the definition from the RRG:

RRG - Friendly Figure wrote:
All figures belonging to a player are friendly toward one another.
• A figure is friendly to itself.
• During a campaign, all <Rebel>
figures are friendly toward one
another. In addition, all <Imperial> figures and
<Mercenary> figures are friendly
toward one another.
• Players cannot target friendly figures with attacks.


So according to your called out abilities:

Bacta Radiator: "Each friendly figure within 2 spaces..."

MHD-19 is indeed within 2 spaces and is Friendly to himself, so it counts.

Combat Spotter: "Friendly figures may..."

And this thus does apply to Loku too.

A figure is always friendly to itself.

Damn. Yet another question polluting the boards where the answer is clearly explained in the RRG

Thanks though for looking it up for me and reminding me to check the book in future

The wording is relatively new on the cards (even though it was forseen in the core box). So don't beat yourself up too much about it.

Worth reminding that MHD-19 cannot be affected by the abilities of Medical Cards so, in fact, No, MHD-19 cannot use Bacta Radiator but for different reasons

Bacta Radiator is not a medical card, it is a class card. (It's MHD-19's own class card to boot.)

Thematically it may sound like a medical effect, but the card is for all game mechanic (sorry, couldn't help myself) purposes not a medical card as it is one of his upgrade cards.

And Bacta Radiator does not have Medical written anywhere on it.
