Z E T A & R O



Infiltration Unit Zeta & Rosalie Rowan Runaways/Fugitives Wanderers The Zeta Project


C H A R A C T E R C O N C E P T


"I have a hard time processing sarcasm, why must humans say one thing but mean another so often?"
"Because then the world wouldn't be nearly as fun! We really have to work on your humor circuits sometime Zee."
"I do not believe you have the necessary programming background to be doing such work."

Zeta and Ro, two very different individuals but who are both on the run. One from the government who made him, the other from the terrible government system of child services. A chance meeting brought them together and they have been traveling together ever since, both on a mission to find their respective 'parents'.

Now the original show takes place in the Batman Beyond Universe so there will be a lot of changes in the transition from then to a present day role play. As Zeta is a very advanced robot I'll be included some salvaged alien tech in his construction, most notably his holographic projector. Instead of having him be a project of the NSA I'll make him a SHIELD project just to more easily tie him in with the rest of the world, with a little help from SWORD.


C H A R A C T E R M O T I V A T I O N S & G O A L S




A story about a fledgling artificial intelligence, a troubled teen, government secrets and terrorists. The dynamic between Zeta and Ro are of course the highlight of any Zeta run, a somewhat sassy girl riding along with a straight-laced robot who is trying to learn more about humans every day to better fit in with society. A robots logic constantly clashes against an emotional teenager for some fun results and at times frustrations.

The core of the story is about the two of them finding out about themselves along the way and forging their own identities. Zeta as a 'killer robot' trying to become someone who will never kill again and Ro, going through the emotional years of adolescent unsure of why she was orphaned and desperate to find out the truth so she can finally put the past behind her. Each character has a lot of growing up to do and I want to have fun exploring their development


C H A R A C T E R N O T E S




James Bennet – Agent of SHIELD in charge of hunting down Zeta under the belief he was captured by the terrorist organization Brother's Day and was reprogrammed to do their bidding. Extremely serious about his job, he believes it is his duty to capture Zeta and prevent him from doing any more damage.

Agent West – A team member under James Bennet who is a bit of a klutz and has an ego that overshadows everything else. He dreams of being the agent to bring Zeta in to prove himself as the elite agent he claims to be.

Agent Lee – Another team member under James Bennet who is quite serious about her job but is also quite a critical thinker, especially when it comes to Zeta's actions. A competent agent who any superior would be proud to have. Often used to try and keep West in line.

Bucky Benaventura – A child prodigy enrolled in a special research facility who is constantly getting into trouble. His engineering prowess is no joke however and his talent for building and hacking puts him up there with the best of them, if he would just learn a little self restraint.

Dr. Selig – Head of the ZETA project, Dr. Selig is kept under tight wraps by the government making it quite hard for Zeta to locate him. It is Zeta's hope that Dr. Selig will be able to prove that he was not reprogrammed and instead has become a true, alive artificial intelligence that has no wish to harm others.

Infiltration Unit 7 – Successor to the Zeta project, this infiltration unit is much more heavily armed than Zeta ever was. More of an assassin than reconnaissance.

Rohan Krick – A bounty hunter enhanced with cybernetic implants. Takes on government contracts and black market ones for the money.

Brother's Day – A terrorist organization that was Zeta's first infiltration mission. Quite active but very secretive and prefers to fly under the radar. Illegal arms dealing is one of their main sources of revenue.

In the interest of discussion:

Since Wraith and I have already done it, and it may be too busy right now for you to do a whole feel goody post. Who are you enjoying reading most right now?

I am really enjoying what's going on with @Pacifista and Hulk, while Ted Kord is a close second I'm really looking forward to seeing how this goes, and how Hulk/Banners relationship develops.

“ If you want to test a man, give him power. “



Year 0 interpretation of Static that examines the political effects of having a massive metahuman diaspora in an urban city. Toss in corporate malfeasance, corrupt law enforcement and gang warfare for a cocktail that examines what it means to make true change in a world that doesn’t want to.

C H A R A C T E R M O T I V A T I O N S & G O A L S:



I’m returning back to Virgil’s world once more because 1) I’m bored as fuck out of my mind and 2) I think his story resonates now with me more than ever. The story focuses more on exploring Dakota City rather than a character study of Virgil himself and his trials and tribulations as a hero. This story is different. This story explores Virgil attempting to solve the ever escalating problems of his hometown and realising that you can’t just punch away all the crime and expect everything to be perfect. Dakota City with all of its various parties of interest, nooks and crannies should be considered the secondary character of Virgil’s story.

C H A R A C T E R N O T E S:



N/A

S A M P L E P O S T:

He’s drowning yet rising, becoming something else. Water fills his lungs as his bones crack and reform. His nerves are on fire as the Dakota Bay grows murkier around him. His brain struggles for the last gasps of oxygen as he sees the world around him light up like a neon sign and he blacks out and and




“ Virgil? Virgil? Are you listening?”

Teenagers. Diane groused mentally. Ever since the Paris Island riots, she hadn’t slept for more than 2 hours a night. You couldn’t blame Dakota Union High’s superintendent for not taking into account a national bio-chemical incident but you could blame them for a lack of funding. Working 24 hours, 7 days a week with no overtime bonuses, in hindsight, seemed like less of a move of altruism on her part and more of a desire to fulfill some sort of hidden sado masochistic tendency within her.

Besides, she wasn’t here for self-pity. She was currently focused on the boy in front of her looking out at the snow in a daze. His frizzy black hair was like an overgrown bush with dandruff peppered throughout. An oversized Lululemon fleece jacket, navy blue, hangs around his slim figure. She can just make out the black and yellow symbol of a clenched fist with the words ‘JUSTICE FOR - “ raised sky high on his white t-shirt before it moves out of view. His bright brown eyes flicker out of whatever daydream he was in, flushing in embarrassment as he rubs the back of his head.

“ Yeah, sorry, miss Franklin.” Virgil’s fingers were tangled together in a knot. “ Just a lot of thoughts going through my head right now.”

“Well, part of my job is to help you sort through all those thoughts.” She tapped the end of her clipboard for a moment before sighing. “ Did you listen to my question just now?”

“ No. No. I remember. You asked….ummmmm….Do you think the Dakota Destroyers will win this weekend’s playoffs?”

“ No. I’m of the opinion that the Gotham Gargoyles have a better chance than our sorry sack of a team.” She chuckled. “ But I digress. How have you been feeling?”

“ Good. You know, fine.”

“ Better than the last time we met?”

“ Well, uh, like everyone says, it’s a process, right? Everyone’s different and I’m different and uh….well…..therapy’s not a quick fix unlike those shrinks you see on TV. Like, you know, I’ve been keeping active if that’s what you’re worried about. “

“ You seem a little tense.”

“ Tense?” He nervously chuckles. “ Nah, why would I be tense? I’m not trying to hide anything or….”

“ Virgil.” Her voice becomes suddenly sharper before taking on a more gentle This is not an interrogation. This is just a conversation.”

“ I don’t know if I can believe that.”

“Nothing leaves this room without your wish.”

The lights in the room dim for a moment, and then, flare back up. Odd. They just did renovations for this block a week ago. She’ll have to call maintenance tomorrow to take a look at lighting. Virgil exhales, rubbing his hands together to warm himself in the chill of silence.

“ All right, then.” He looks up, his face haunted. “ It all began with a Big Bang.“

Most of the latter half of that post is sub-par. But I had to get it out, I've delayed too long.

Vignettes are over, now, though. I'll be moving on with the start of the first real arc, and/or participating in the first mini-event should that come between now and when I start writing the next post.

C H A R A C T E R C O N C E P T:


"Nobody wants to be alone... Not even we monsters." - Jonothon "Chamber" Starsmore

After the escape of the man known as "Wolverine", the Government program "Weapon X" was swiftly shut down, packed up, it's budget diverted numerous times and it's purpose shifted to various shady and seemingly unrelated Government departments in order to evade accountability lest the failure return to the doors of those responsible.

Years later, and the Government has once again been emboldened to dabble in mutant weapons. Now under the banner of the C.I.A's "International Operations" or "I.O.", the Weapon X program undertook a cosmetic name change and became known as Gen11. Followed naturally by Gen12. Making the most of the latitude provided by the name change, I.O. chose to utilise ALL that had been learned about the mutant genome and add diversity, to provide a large slate of new options in their Generation 13 rollout.

Mental blocks were put into place by powerful psychics. The children were made to believe the facility was an expensive boarding school styled Academy, where they had been sent by their parents to best ensure a quality education. The truth was that none of these children had ever really met their parents, and by night were sleeping in Gen-Developmental capsules which aged the students and further pacified the students whilst in their subconscious state. I.O. had learned much from earlier programs, and the best way to maintain control was to ensure that authority was viewed as justified. Positive behaviour at the Academy was seemingly "rewarded" whilst negative behaviour "punished" but in reality, all behaviour was met with the same consequences - behaviour modifying drugs and psychic manipulation. This groundwork needed to be laid early to ensure control could be maintained once the children's powers would begin to manifest.

Whilst this method of control proved superior to more forceful methods tried in the past with operations like Weapon X, it required consistent utilization of the understood "rules" between authority figures and subject and would only hold as well as its weakest link. So successful was this method of control in fact, that some students took on more responsibilities in order to appease the controlling authority further. Such was the case with the subject Caitlin Fairchild.

Fairchild was a standout academic (particularly in computing and electrical engineering, but in general as well), albeit mousey figure, very responsible in nature and instilled with some greater privileges around the facility. Often functioning as a voice of reason between her fellow students, when they would listen to her. One night she staggered out to the bathroom, feeling unwell - the drugs had begun to cause nausea as power manifestation drew imminent, and she caught her name lit up on an unattended computer screen. Upon further investigation she discovered that the "Fairchild" it referred to was an "Alexander Fairchild" - her birthparents, which contradicted the information she'd been told all of her life and been made to believe by psychic manipulation. With quick thinking, Caitlin hacked in a "backdoor" access using her technological progress so that she would be able to once again gain access should she need to leave in a hurry. As soon as she had done this, she began to scan through the rest of her fellow "classmates" files and was shocked at the results.

The relatively passive method of containment employed depended upon two things:
A mutually agreed upon system of punishment and reward
And
A sense that punishment and reward was being handled justly by the authoritative presence.

These tacit agreements were breached when an “attendant”, noticing Caitlin up past curfew and accessing forbidden files, chose to respond by attempting to knock her out with the concussive force of a stun gun. However, fuelled by righteous indignation and the drugs prescribed to aid in the manifestation of powers, Caitlin shook off the attempt to bring her to heel. She grew dramatically, as her muscles rapidly became considerably denser and, not knowing her strength, knocked the attendant unconscious in self-defence.

Scared of reprisal and feeling alone in her knowledge of this terrible place, Caitlin fled and woke several of her classmates. She shook a handful of the others awake; Everett Thomas - because she believed everyone would listen to him, Jubilation Lee – because her seemingly willful disobedience would lead to her believing her story, Roxy Spaulding and Eddie Chang – because she believed Roxy was the “coolest kid in school” and people would believe her, and she happened to have been sneaking around with Grunge after curfew at the time, and Jono Starsmore – because he had been severely hurt by this place already, having accidentally blown away his jaw and part of his upper chest when his own powers manifested, which had changed his attitude about the “Academy” already.

After telling these five, it took very little time before the news spread and the others were awake and ready to leave.

But they’ve now learned something devastating about their previously pleasant Principal Ivana Baiul…



She dresses like a right trollop outside of school hours...

...Wait, no, that's not it. It's that she's a cyborg and has decided that she's willing to change up the program and try more forceful means of keeping them all here.

C H A R A C T E R M O T I V A T I O N S & G O A L S:

Teen characters, on the run together, trying to make things work whilst having their own issues in and amongst themselves, as they search for meaning, family and life.

By blending together two (well... if you're a GM three) different titles I should have a good depth of story matter to work with and should hopefully come up with some pretty interesting posts.

It's going to be very ambitious keeping all of these plates spinning at once and making sure they're still complex characters with depth... but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

C H A R A C T E R N O T E S:

- Powers: Physical Powerhouse

Powers: Flame/Plasma Manipulation

Powers: Vessel for Seemingly Boundless Psionic Energy

Powers: Gravity Manipulation

Powers: Able to Take On the Properties of Objects He Comes Into Contact With

Hey guys, thought I would pop in and attempt to explain the lack of Bat-posts. In all honesty, I've been in kind of a huge funk lately, and without getting into specifics I've been having a few relationship and school troubles. Nothing too major but nonetheless I have ended up very distracted and I'm finding it quite difficult to push through. I'm sorry to have done this, especially with a character as major as Batman and doubly so given how extreme of a take I've done on him, and I'd like to apologize to everyone, but especially our GM team and Roman. I'm going to try to get something out within the next couple of days and if I can't manage that I'm going to step back from the cowl. Sorry, y'all.

Sorry for the lack of activity- real life has been, well, insane. I lost a job, got a new one, started having panic attacks, and only just recently started to normal out, only for it to start back up again thanks to all the fun stuff on the news. And on top of that, I'm so far behind in posting that I feel guilty about even checking in on it, let alone trying to pick up where I left off a month ago. Excuses aside, I could use a little escapism, so if I still have access to Spidey and the Titans girls, I will try to get posts up soon.
