Oh boy, here we go... @_@; This is a reference sheet for
. Yes, that's right... I'm trying for an OCT. <8D ; Hopefully it'll get me back into the swing of comic-ing. Wish me luck!
Okay, so I didn't have enough room in the picture to write everything (and I didn't want the picture to mostly be a wall of my bad handwriting), so here's all of the info. 8BName:
ST1X-972 (ST1X for short)Species:
For a robot, not really all that heavyAge:
Finding junk (especially shiny things), building stuff, cleaningDislikes:
Crows (especially one in particular who keeps trying to steal shiny things from him), big dogs, seeing useful trash being destroyed, lightning stormsAbilities:
Really, the only things built into him that are even remotely weapon-ish are retractable spikes in the bottoms of his feet for picking up litter. Even then, they aren't meant for combat purposes, and can bend or break easily if used in battle for too long. He has a few back-up spikes built in as well, in the instance that one does break (he has three back-up spikes in each foot). Most of the time, his biggest ability is to quickly build useful tools (or in a combat situation, weaponry) out of any surrounding trash or items he could find. In short, he is quite resourceful. His arms and legs are also extendable, so he has a pretty good reach.Strengths:
Quick thinker, inventive, quick with building things, a bit stronger than humans, able to cover good distances quickly thanks to his extendable legs, able to take a good amount of damage before going down, quite handy with cleaning tools (brooms, mops, vacuums, etc.)Weaknesses:
Electricity (it can short him out completely), fire, large bodies of water (He sinks, and even if he could stay at the surface with his extendable legs, it'll still slow him down considerably), his spikes can't take too heavy of an impact, if he's not able to find good materials to build things, unable to explain or talk his way out of otherwise avoidable situationsBackground Info:
ST1X is part of a line of robots made purely for janitorial work. Some things about this type of robot in general:
They are equipped with extendable limbs, to get to hard-to-reach litter (like if someone threw something into a tree, for example), and retractable spikes in the bottoms of their feet for picking up stray papers and other such litter).
They have no mouth, speaker, or voicebox of any sort, so they can't talk. After all, why stand around and chat when there's work to be done?
They're waterproof, for the purpose of still being able to work while it's raining.
Their serial numbers are printed on their collars, so they can be told apart from others (though they do come in different colors as well)
Each one has only a basic personality and range of emotion (though ST1X seems to have more for than just a basic one for some reason... >_> )
The mechanics on their arms and faces are covered with a white cloth "skin" (possibly to make them look less scary to small children while roaming for trash). Also, their hats cannot be removed.
They are used in a variety of places, and aren't all too uncommon to see in the world ST1X comes from.
Now, while ST1X was made for custodial work (for an outdoor park), he ended up being thrown away by his owners... Because instead of disposing of the trash like it was supposed to, he seemed more keen on making new things out of it (and digging through trashcans to do so). Basically, he was causing more of a mess than he was cleaning. Now he roams the city's junkyard, creating things from the amazing abundance of garbage, having an ongoing rivalry with a rather large crow, and constantly trying to protect himself from territorial packs of other stray robots (especially those infected with the ZOM virus, which basically zombifies robots), and running from the vicious junkyard dog. So... yes, he lives in a dump. That pretty much explains why he's all dirty and stuff. XD ;
He has a particular adoration for anything shiny or sparkly. If he sees something like that that isn't bolted/tied/whatever-else down, he would probably try to add it to his collection.
He seems to have a bigger range of emotion programmed into him than most of his type, and an odd personality of his own. For the most part he is very curious, which could get him into quite a bit of trouble if it goes unchecked for too long. He's generally nice to others (though a bit untrusing), as long as they don't strike him as threatening. He also gets rather bashful when complimented.
That's all I could think of to write... @_@ Whew! Sorry for the textwall... Well, if I forgot something, I'll try to add it in later.
