Day 1 - A main protagonist, their bio
Name: [REDACTED], Redact, “The bugger with the bag-head.”
Android Model C-F6, D-A3, D-B1
Redact is a shoddy throw-together of scrap metal, a pair of LED lights and outdated androids. His core comes from a defective C-F6, an old model of the modern anthropomorphic robot. (As of Redact’s assembly, the most recent model is the I-K9).
Five years prior to Redact’s assembly, the C-F6 is discarded at a local slum populated by the Physically Deformed (PD), Mentally Inept (MI), and the occasional Union of Physically Deformed and Mentally Inept Individuals Seeking Equality (UPDMIISE, pronounced “Optimise”) activist. Current time, society is dominated by individuals holding elitist ideals of beauty and intelligence. Its citizens endorse life enhancements, facial reconstruction and body-beauty products (one of which include skin colour change; skin change is originally introduced to decrease racist crimes, but quickly evolves into a popular fashion statement.)
Five years fast forward, a PD (Physically Deformed) finds the worn C-F6 while searching for a spare wrench and gathers him with other scrounges of D-A3 and D-B1 models. The PD rebuilds the android using the salvaged skeletal frame of the C-F6 and pieces of the D-A3 and D-B1. He is pleasantly surprised to see that it still functions.
Redact has no head; the cranial mould of the C-F6 was crushed during its five years in the dump. Redact doesn’t need a head, but he wears a paper bag to make others feel more at ease. His eyes are cheap LED lights with cameras that feed into his core.
EDIT: He’s holding onto a crutch in the GIF because he’s learning to walk. More on this later.@1 year ago with 14 notes
