Cyberpunk 2077 is based on a tabletop RPG called Cyberpunk 2020, and while there are plenty of differences, the somewhat ambiguous ‘Cool’ stat was taken straight from the source material.

“Most gun fights end because someone loses it and can't keep it together,” Pondsmith said, which he learned from speaking with a friend in the Rangers. “I wanted to get that sense of you project that you're together, you can keep it together.”
