Character Profile: Wrodin

Today for Father’s Day, I have a character who has never had a father!

One of the islands that the crystals wash up onto is deserted—devoid of any life, actually. Not even plants. Instead, it’s covered in junk and scrap metal. It looked as if a thousand factories building metal objects exploded. And one of these metal objects is hit with The Conqueror’s animator.

Wrodin is a machine built for war. When closed it’s just a red sphere, but the two halves can split open to reveal a black cylinder connecting them (where the obligatory “living inanimate object eyes” appear). As a war machine, it comes fitted with a vast array of weapons: explosive shells, missiles, rockets, energy guns, bullets, miniature versions of itself, its own weight, and a massive energy blast that can cut through solid steel.

Wrodin is fixated on war. Aiming to be The Conqueror’s top general, it desires nothing more than to sweep the cosmos by The Conqueror’s side, blowing up anyone who stands in their way—the slubes included. But with Wrodin on his side, The Conqueror had better invade quick—Wrodin might just blow everything up in its raging passion for destruction.

Character Profile: Sawn

When The Conqueror realizes the crystal is being gathered up by inhabitants of the planet he intends to invade, he decides to show them his might—but covertly. He doesn’t want them realizing he’s there, so he begins to recruit agents from the planet below using his technology, starting with an animator.

Sawn is a buzzsaw. That’s really all there is to it. It’s a buzzsaw brought to life through nanotechnology, and now it has two big, red eyes on its side. It’s quick to anger and quick to just about everything else. Floats like a bee, stings like an angry blade of death. It relishes in destruction, whether it’s sawing through wood or living tissue.

As it was given sapience by The Conqueror, it aims to rebuild the crystal and kill whoever gets in its way. But this is only the first agent The Conqueror creates, and there are more to come…
