Species: Intelligent construct.
Status: Deserter/Rogue soldier
Hair: No hair.
Eyes: Metal orbs with a glowing red portion.
Height: Four foot two, at the shoulder.
Figure: A metal one, reminiscent of a giant vulpine. It even has a mouth filled with teeth and a mechanical tongue, along with fox ears, though only the ears serve a useful purpose. The Ninetails unit does not need to eat. While the majority of its body is slim and agile, its legs are slightly bulkier because of the need to give it powerful movement ability so that its metal frame does not prove too heavy.
Other: Rather than the single tail most creatures have, if any, this one has nine. It’s modeled after the myth found across various countries in the far East. Each tail is a six foot long, flexible, segmented metal tendril. Their combined strength is enough to support the creature they come from, an admirable feat considering it’s made primarily of steel with only a few segments that are comprised of lighter materials like titanium. (interior not accounted for)
Clothing: It makes a point to dress in its finest metal chassis.
Family: It was constructed by a thoughtless machine just taking orders, and designed by a team of scientists, so it can’t even claim the inventor-creation connection. No family.
Personality: When it feels threatened, Ninetails is cold and analytical. It’s hard for the creature to show emotion in the ways one would expect someone to because of it’s inability to use facial expression to communicate, and doesn’t share humanoid body language. It barely shares the body language of the animals it’s modeled after. Outwardly, Ninetails never displays it’s feelings and has a tendency to take on the roll of a mindless “I just follow orders.” sort of drone. Internally, it’s a creature of curiosity that longs to explore and analyze every piece of information it can acquire. That includes emotional experiences, among other things.
Strengths: Durable body, highly intelligent, agile.
Weakness: Socially inept, uneducated, easily manipulated.
Likes: Learning, talking, protecting, caring for others.
Dislikes: Conflict, messes, unintelligence, hunting.
Dream: To discover a place where it can be in solitude, if not in harmony with others.
History: Ninetails was an experimental unit constructed by the American government using advanced artificial intelligence technology and the most advanced alloys of the day. It was designed to assist in the anti-terrorist operations in the Middle East, but was deemed a failure after displaying too much empathy. It was subsequently deactivated and shipped to the highest bidder (A group particularly enthusiastic about aliens and their technology in Cardiff) for quite the sum of money, as it contained a surplus of adapted extraterrestrial technology. The highest bidder never received their package, for better or worse. The package containing the Ninetails unit was intercepted by a (still unidentified) group or individual who immediately released it to roam the British Isles freely.
