One of the few decent things to come out of watching Antonio Banderas' painfully mediocre 'Automata'

A good portion of the movie was spent looking for the 'clocksmith', evoking a washed out 1980s post-apoc robot western version of Bladerunner, without the acting, special effects, charm, or memorable characters. The robots, with their synthetic voices and uniform appearance seemed to have more range than the human characters. If this was deliberate, it would have been better done (compare HAL's mellifluous voice in 2001: A Space Odyssey vs the toneless voice of Bowman) This was just formerly impressive actors working for a paycheck.

Nothing exceptional, and trope, yes. I've thrown out this as the spearhead submission in a four sentence character challenge. Spelling errors have been fixed. Go to Comment

Did you read the related submission Cheka? This is intentionally a very terse submission.

That said, I would probably use the more verbose form with each sentence followed by a bit of expansion.

I like her - a simple straightforward NPC that can easily be used. I think Cersei is very close to this one :)

I know this is supposedly to for the 4 sentence challenge and I don't mind its length. What I do mind is the one-dimensionality of the NPC. The seduced by and frightened by parts seem to me as if they are the same thing rephrased in a different way. Sorry, Scras, didn't mean to be harsh, but I just felt like some of the potential of this NPC had been wasted this way. I'm gonna go with 2.5 on this. Go to Comment

This is a rather standard fulfillment of the "Evil Queen" trope. I would have graded it 2 or 2.5 except for the spelling errors ("rave dark hair" and "inspect" rather than expect). Go to Comment

It's Cthulhu meets A Fire Upon the Deep!

One of the great unknowns with modern AI research is what the objectives / motives of more intellectual, logical, and powerful begins are.

The larger an entity is, the longer it takes for information to transfer across it. Hence, large things think slower (if you adhere to today's physics). One cool concept is for extreme computation ability at singularities / universal collapse. Having a being that takes advantage of that would be cool.

Provides a neat background to a campaign.

Great - but I think it could go a little further to work properly.

In addition to the musculature of the face, changes would need to be made to the underlying bones. Bone would need to be removed in multiple places to allow for ratio changes between the various facial feature to allow for expansion or compression. In these joints would be placed either implanted servos (bad for lots of reasons) or tissue that could be caused to swell or contract as needed. This would allow for dramatic changes in appearance but would have the side effect of reducing the structural integrity of the face.

Another side effect of this is the facedancer loses their original face. Their resting face would be an odd one - contracted with with features a bit too close to be natural. So, they would always normally be acting.
