Hanging on the arm of a wealthy upper crust man, she was the perfect arm charm. But you swear, you have seen her before.

“Hi I’m Candi”, she giggled in an almost musical voice.

Candi appears to be a pretty human girl in her mid 20s. Candi is actually an android created by the Dreaded Mech Master.

The Mech Master has some subtle plans from time to time, most of them revolve around mindcontrol devices or android imposters. Of course the heroes always stop the egotistical mech master and smash all his toys.

Well all but one. Candi’s holding tube was blown out of the radius of destruction when the lair exploded. The jarring explosion activated her. She had all her basic programing, but none of her mission specifics. She existed, but had no purpose. (She was not a duplicate, but was going to be used as bait to lure certain targets). She straightened her dress, picked up her purse, and entered human society.

The early days were her using her appearance and “human interface peripherals” to achieve money. This allowed her a nice place to store herself and her things and recharge. This would of be a great job if humans did not consider it illegal. After a time she had enough money to buy the elements of a new identity. She has drifted from job to job, trying to learn these new trades. She has been a receptionist, a sales girl for clothing and new cars, a waitress, an actress, and is now trying her hand at modelling. During this time she has been supplimenting her income as a high end escort (legal this time), so she has been seen on the arm of many an extremely rich gentleman.

Inhumanly strong and durrable.
Inhuman reflexes and speed.
A variety of computer databases and interface abilities (IR interfaces and Wireless network abilities)

Roleplay Notes
Candi will tell people she has Asmovian values, but really she does not. Her only goal is to continue to exist and will resort to anything to achieve that goal.

Candi acts like a bubbly party girl much of the time. However this is just a programmed masque. She can act in any way appropriate, taking on any persona needed. Underneith all the human acting masques is a cunning artificial intelligence.

Plot Lines
These vary depending upon when in Candi’s life story you encounter her. She could be a serious suprise to a street level hero trying to stop some prostitution. She could be background to the characters if they are buying clothes or a car, or maybe she is the new stylish receptionist at work. They may even encounter her on the arm of a millionair that blows into town.

Her being visible in the media (lets say on the arm of the millionaire) will be her undoing. Mech Master escaped of course and realizes that one of his units is not doing what he told it to do… so he will send units to capture it so it can be reprogrammed. Of course the heroes will think the robots are after the millionaire or some other person there… rather than the pretty girl.

With the required genetic dispersion out of the way. This takes a perfectly good cliche and twists it so it is interesting. (It has to be played "just so" to work.)

You could do better with it.

Now that robots seem to come up again, it is time to remind of those pieces that actually escape control. And this is a neat example.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
