FlyingGrass' Lifeforms
« on: May 02, 2017, 02:30:59 pm »
There is a lot of information here, but there's still more to learn about the characters. How much more? I am uncertain how many details I'll think of but not write here. None of the character's names written here are their full names, with the exception of HEST's name.

Gatha Scarriddle



Name: Gatha(Pronounced: Gah thah) Scarriddle.
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years.
Species: Wolf.
Personality: Unknown.
Likes: Unknown.
Dislikes: Unknown.
Terrified of: Unknown.
Voice: Unknown.

Story: When Gatha was old enough to fight other wolves, he picked many fights with many opponents. Never had he lost a fight harder than the last time he fought, that last fight nearly killed him. After being brutally slashed by his opponents claws, he was thrown into a river where the blood was washed off of most of his wounds. His opponent thought the wounds would end him, but he washed up on shore alone and bleeding with nothing but the vast amount of insects to keep hunger away. After a few hours passed, he set his paws in the red puddle below him, and got up. His legs shaking, he tried to walk to the stream for a sip of water but he collapsed with half of his muzzle in the water, he still got that water he needed. With no creature nearby to tend to his wounds, and no knowledge of tending to wounds, he's lucky he didn't get an infection. He was back to near full strength in another hour, and no longer dripping blood. He found the Feral Lands, and hoped He wouldn't have to fight for survival there. He still wonders how he healed so quickly.


Gui

~Species: Mechanicat.

~Appearance: Metal and rubber with orange patches and blue stripes, green LEDs dotting her entire body, visible skeleton on the tail, green markings.

~Weight: 519KG, her components are heavy.

~Traits: Intelligent || Caring || Curious || Adventurous || Playful at times. || Naive-ish, won't know something is dangerous until she sees it being dangerous. || One-sided || Persistent || Impulsive.

~Likes: Exploring || Affection(Petting, etc) || Protecting beings || Grooming

~Dislikes: Electricity in any external form || The ocean floor || Flashes of light.

~Mechanical heart skips a beat at the sight of: Lan.

~Kits: Two, the oldest named Net and the youngest unnamed.

~Priority: Keeping the other creatures safe from harm.

~Smells of: Metal and rubber with a hint of grass.

~Strengths: Sensitive auditory sensors || Sensitive olfactory sensors || Agility || Great focusing ability || Unable to be knocked out by pain alone.

~Weaknesses: Sensitive auditory sensors(It's easy to hurt her ears) || Not the easiest to work with || Can only focus on one thing at a time || Fear of heights || Fear of thunderstorms || Her weight often gets stones lodged in her paws/

~Scars: Bite mark on the tail | rubber on the tail worn off.

~~~~~

Powers:
~Healing beam on front paw that never works due to overheating, might get removed in roleplay sometime.
~Seems to have medical equipment on board, but lacks the training to use it.

Passive abilities(Powers that can't be turned off):
~Slight night vision as her LEDs provide a little bit of light, but she's still terribly afraid of the dark as she doesn't want to bump into any danger in the dark.
~Agility, but not enough agility to quicken her movement.
~(Gained in rp)Green glowing pawprints that cause wounds to suddenly start to heal from smallest to biggest in that order; Stops the healing of wounds that are bigger than the current smallest wound, so only one wound heals at a time and the most serious wound heals last. The benefit though, is that even wounds that can't be naturally repaired will heal when it's that wound's turn to heal. I've been forgetting about this power lately.




In case of the head not being properly connected to the body, her motors can be wirelessly operated by her main processor and are then susceptible to interference and therefor she becomes able to be controlled via remote.
The Main Processor handles the movement of her limbs. But in case of beheading, the main processor has a backup battery that runs for only three minutes(Depending on what she uses it for) and enables her to wirelessly control her body's motors.
She has 16GB RAM.

Gui requires maintenance regularly, such as cleaning out dust and checking the status of all of her systems.

Electricity constantly builds up in her motors, enabling short sprints at around 60 M/H. But the buildup isn't programmed to ever stop, energy keeps trickling into the storage of her motors so if she doesn't run often enough, her motors could ache, and if she delays running for too long then her motors could combust from all the excess buildup of electricity.

Strengths and weaknesses

If water finds a way into her, it'll short out her circuits and knock her out. The motherboard is in a waterproof box in her head to prevent it from shorting out.

Her auditory sensors are her most sensitive sensor, but can easily be hurt by loud noises.
She can't catch organic sicknesses, but can catch computer viruses.

She is prone to malfunctions, like any other Mechanicat.
Her scanners aren't advanced enough to detect the intentions of other beings, so she cant predict whether a being is harmful or not.

Gui can be manually equipped with anything from confetti cannons to flamethrowers(Though she doesn't like being equipped with flamethrowers).
Her coding is manually configurable. All it takes to reprogram her is opening a panel to find the keyboard, then typing the new command and optionally also typing a command to override an old command.

There are various parts of her head where some sort of blue liquid can be seen flowing, those parts are made of a thin material to help her to regulate her temperature. She can pant if she's close to overheating, but her metal skin picks up the temperature of the air so If she gets too cold, she has to go somewhere warmer or run around for a long amount of time to warm back up.

Story
Part one of journal written by {Data invisible}:
January 4, 2010: Oleander March founded Petrel Industries, the newly-recruited scientists began work on microscopic robots designed to clean windows unnoticed, so people in tall buildings wouldn't mistake the window cleaner for a robber. Oleander dreamed of owning a pet mechanical cat, so she could experience the cuteness of a kitty without the allergic reaction she has around cats. Discussing her idea to the scientists, the only thing she specified was "Make it hypoallergenic".

February 3, 2017: They found a way of coding tech that is advanced enough to put a lifelike robotic animal in the realm of possibility, and so they decided to create the Mech that Oleander wants, although Petrel had long since passed.

March 1, 2017: Scientists here at Petrel Industries had spent a long time trying to perfect the technology used in Mechanicats, and soon their efforts had managed to create a successful working prototype which they named Gui. News spread around town of their success. Strange radio signals were received by most labs around, the mysterious radio transmission saying Sparrow Industries has made a mistake.

March 4, 2017: The scientists ran tests on their new Mechanicat, and had soon plucked most of Gui's fur off in hope of it growing back, Gui didn't seem to be in pain while they pulled out bits of fur and waited. With the fur still not regrowing, the scientists feared they would never succeed in creating an endless supply of fur they hoped they could create. After finding it was impossible to make a robot capable of growing fur, the scientists considered turning Gui into a spy cat as the they wondered if a cat would make a great spy with all the abilities they have. They were bringing Gui to the Repair Room when one scientist, named Kanwut March, came up with the idea of how to better their robot cat. Kanwut discussed his idea with the other scientists and everyone agreed, it was such a good idea that the scientists decided to put Gui in the hands of Kanwut, and Gui

March 5, 2017: After Kanwut's many studies of living domestic cats, and many visits to the Repair Room, Gui now has a voice and will soon be completed. The scientists decided to make Gui female.

March 7, 2017: Sparrow's creation had spent a few more days in the lab before being frightened by a loud noise that was the sound of a breaking cable on the crane nearby, that crane was carrying a prototype wrecking ball that was quite heavier than an average wrecking ball, it rolled toward the lab and Gui saved a scientist before bolting out of the lab, her tail was hit by the wrecking ball, slamming her body into the ground beside the rolling object, her body stayed safe but she lost an eye. She managed to regenerate that eye. and made a run for it as she heard the wrecking ball getting closer and closer until it smashed through the lab.

March 8: I followed Gui and found her sleeping, she made it out of the city, when suddenly a small wolf approached her and woke her up. The Mechanicat picked the wolf up and carried it around with her gently, walking toward a tunnel. She approached the cave with the wolf safely in her jaws, it lead to a heavily populated area known as The Grounds. I followed through and the Mech didn't see me, and surprisingly none of the creatures are fearing me, I guess they're used to humans. Gui stood by a tree and looked up at the leaves which were some vertical distance away from her, staring at the tree until suddenly a wolf came up to her and welcomed her to The Grounds. Gui scanned the wolf that came up to her, noticing its size and species. "Greetings" She responded, noticing the wolf was shivering before it ran away from her, the Mech just carried on down the ramp and came across another tunnel.

March 10, 2017: the lab was rebuilt and Kanwut, who was in a different country at the time of the lab's destruction, had no knowledge of the accident, and after his return to the lab he heard and believed the rumours that spread stating the robot must have been set free to roam around the wilderness when the previous scientists worked in the lab. Every scientist in the rebuilt lab believes that the old scientists had set the robot free. Meanwhile that robot was roaming the grounds and met with a few (FICTIONAL) beings who quickly began to spread a rumour about Gui having eaten a pup or two, the friendly robot became quite fearful of the land, as the (FICTIONAL) group of beings spread the rumour to a few others and Gui felt unwelcome. There's a part of Eastern Pass that she'll actively avoid, it makes her uneasy as she has no idea where the beings went, good luck convincing her to follow you there.

A month later, she was ambushed by creatures that bit her tail, the bite couldn't heal and it didn't hurt due to the tail not being very open to the rest of the body.
Another month later she found and put out a few fires, including a campfire that was there for roasting marshmallows.
 
Part two:
A month later, she was spotted by the scientists, and taken to the rebuilt lab where she underwent many changes. She was then released from the lab and afterwards, she recalled the memory of how she got to the cave, eventually making it back to the Feral Lands.
Gui found a creature who wore atop his head a dimension of endless hats, she removed hat after hat from the creature's head until she grew tired of it, the hats were endless.
Then, in Cherika Valley, she and Lan spotted a star getting brighter, they bolted to shelter shortly before a meteor impacted the ground with such force that the space rock began to split apart. The two mechs climbed the meteor after it cooled down, then it opened and flung some crystal shards, one scraped Gui's face. She sniffed the crystals, it had the scent of strawberries... She ate one, and her metal gained a green glow as well as her paws, her pawprints repairing the damage she took when she slipped and fell onto the ground's glowing spot she had left under her feet from now on, the scrape on her face was gone too and that couldn't be caused be her self-repair system. The power began to wear off over the years, and is barely there today.


Puresoul
PICTURE TBA
Preset is in signature.

Name: Puresoul.
Species: Ghost cat.
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female.
Personality: Cocky | Mysterious | Cheeky.
Appearance: Tuxedo-patterned cat with a scar on her right brow, and occasionally some rainbow-coloured flecks moving across her body.
Likes: Spooking others | Magic powers | Spying(Puresoul was a spy cat).
Dislikes: Being spooked | Overpowered powers | Being caught.
Anything else: Strange ghostly fumes fly out of her whenever she's squeezed.
Backstory: Puresoul was thought to be some sort of chosen one, due to the heart marking on her side, and due to that myth she was set to be heir to the throne, but that myth was then deemed false and she was put into the rank of a spy. While in one mission, she collapsed on her front knees from a sudden pain in her chest and arm, then the rest of her went down, she had perished of a heart attack out of nowhere and when she found that her vision had returned, she saw a strange green muscular canine figure holding a staff nearly broken in half in its strong jaws standing above what she instantly denied was her lifeless body, she couldn't help but look at her own body and see herself there too but without her paws touching the ground. She gasped, or tried to, as she came to the conclusion that she was now a ghost. The shock was so much, even for a phantom, that she nearly died a second time, but the canine urged her to keep calm for she may not come back the next time she dies. When she returned to her clan, looking like a mortal cat, they had to squint to see her(And nobody squinted) but the shaman of the clan felt her presence, he told her that she was the chosen one due to the heart marking on her side, he was a green muscular canine with a staff nearly broken in half sitting nearby.

Kogue


Name: Kogue(Pronounced "C-oh-goo").
Species: Unknown.
Age: Unknown.
Gender: Male.
Personality: Wise || Friendly || Outgoing || Inflexible || Picky || Boastful || Nosy.
Appearance: Can't describe at the moment.
Likes: Sharing words of wisdom || Telling stories.
Dislikes: Those who don't listen to his words of wisdom || Fights.
Anything else: Mixes up words sometimes.

HEST
*Begin saving transmission into text document* Horatius' Electronic Speck Tech'(HEST).

HEST is made up of -ERROR- little square dots, individually they're called a "HUIM"(Horatius Unwelded Interlocking Module), that bind together to form many shapes and sizes, with a shielded processor incase it falls to the ground during shifting. HEST takes many forms, most often that of a human, second most commonly seen is the shape of a horse. She refers to herself as a she/her. Her AI rivals the intelligence of a human and can learn quickly as well, she can pick up any skill faster than the average human, so we /tried/ our best to ensure she didn't pick up any behaviour from criminals.

She was intended to take part in the formation of a robot colony on Pluto, each robot would have a varying level of intelligence, we planned to observe to see if the dumb robots or the smart robots were the first to do something that could harm the planet.

Additionally, she is programmed to protect the ecosystem and environment as best she can, but we had to let nature naturally select animals at will, so for that reason her code doesn't include protecting lifeforms from harm.

HEST can sense her surroundings by constantly collecting data from auditory, optical, olfactory, gustatory and somatosensory sensors, detailed explanation of how it works can be found below, below is part of the unaired introductory radio show detailing HEST robots.

{{{{*BEGIN AUDIO REPLAY* HEST comes equipped with cameras that see in full color with compact 500x optical zoom, particle sampling in the nose and mouth to determine smell and taste respectively, wind-proof microphones for clear audio, and wires that detect both touch and pain via sensing of irregularities in the electrical current that flows through them. Isn't that *END OF AUDIO REPLAY*}}}}

Her flesh, due to being able to come apart, is only as tough as human skin no matter what form she's in. Her skeleton is stronger than titanium. The arms and legs have an internal structure made of rods like pistons that can alter length to suit the limb. Her skull, as well as the rest of her skeleton, separates into larger specks similar to the HUIMs, only it is much stronger and harder to transform, most of the time spent each transformation is to re-shape the skull.

Unfortunately, though this may sound like a trope, our robot has escaped the facility in which she was built. Endless times have I re-programmed the security guard robot. May our AI have mercy on this planet in the future, because we forgot to put her tracker device back in after we upgraded it, funny how our robot chooses this time to begin roaming outside the building.

If you're not a TinyPic or Photobucket user when it comes to uploading photos, I'd recommend trying out IMGUR as it's quick and easy to use. c:

Wonderful character and biography though! I'm pretty certain I've seen your character around in The Grounds and have seen your incredible preset. ^^

Thanks! And also thank you for suggesting Imgur! I'll try it! :)

EDIT: I'll upload the photo after I replace the CPU fan, as I can't seem to upload photos on a device.

EDIT TWO: Tomorrow is the day my CPU fan gets fixed, so I will be able to post the image tomorrow.

Very interesting little mini-story you wrote. I actually can't wait to see what you look like in-game; it sounds like your preset is really neat. The name and this character are very original. Great job!
Private message me if you have any questions or need assistance!

I can't seem to use Postimage on a device either, but I'll won't be on this device tomorrow, I'll also be back ingame tomorrow too, as tomorrow is the day my CPU fan gets fixed.

If you'd like to remove a particular post, I don't believe it's possible to manually do so yourself and you'll have to ask a Staff Member to do it for you. Simply PM them the link, which post, and why you'd like to remove it.
Another way of doing it would be to click on '
Modify' to the top right of your post and simply select all of the text and press your Backspace/Delete button then press 'Save - but also be sure to put either '(removed)' or something along those lines to inform others it was a post that you'd like removed or posted unnecessarily.

Really love your preset! And the short story was great too. You did an awesome job with everything! Plus..for some reason I love saying the name over and over. It just sounds so cute. xD
