Talos Rubefacio, rank Tirones[ - Age - ]
16[ - Gender - ]
Male[ - Species - ]
Mobian "Snake...?" (Echidna)[ - Appearance - ]
Fur pattern looks like the one on the right, although the belly just has a circle instead of that mark from crotch to under the pendant.[ - History - ]
One of the forward scouts sent by the Clan to investigate the world outside of a subpocket dumping ground known to those trapped inside as the Twilight Cage. While being sent out to test the superdimensional projection technology could be an honor, sending new and untested soldiers to an unfamiliar and potentially hazardous location with minimal support also a way to dispatch unwanted people or potential rivals.
While he was sent to do research on commonly known points of weakness and potential tools to serve the Clan's interest, the sudden upheaval did nothing good for Talos's stress or his ability to report in on time.[ - Personality - ]
Slightly neurotic and constantly on alert. Secretive. Rarely takes off helmet or armor in public, prefers to lie without actually saying a lie. Lets people assume things. Is fascinated by the world around him and while he finds Robotnik's tech to be interest, Talos does not like the way Robotnik is actively ruining the world with his chemical plants and strange fortresses.[ - Equipment - ]
Blue energy weapon that in addition to hurting the target drains some of the opponent's natural Chaos Energy to recover the user's own fatigue.
[Nocturnus Armor (Low Ranking)]
Basic armor with the least amount of Nocturnus Clan modules installed. Contains an IFF display and basic heads-up display information on wearer's survivability in the surrounding enviroment (ex: if toxins are detected, oxygen levels, if heat or cold exceeds known Echidnan comfort levels).
Restorative health scanning and augmentation tool that operates based on internal charge. Depleting the battery just means user has to wait for it to refill using ambient magical energy.[ - Powers, Abilities, and Skills - ]
[Echidna racial abilities]
Enhanced physical strength and speed, abnormal terrain scaling, glide-flight.
[Familiarity with Advanced Technology and 'basic' Repair Knowledge]
Downside: Detrimental understanding of common/simpler tech. Probably has never seen a TV or console system before.
[Basic combat training and rudimentary understanding of guns (energy blaster type)]
Avalable food prior to entering Mobius was a rare selection of Mobian flora and a larger selection of xenofauna and plants that were also trapped in the Twilight Cage. Most Mobius-native plants and meat are alien to Talos and have a chance of causing internal distress. Mushrooms are one of the rare few items he can safely consume thanks to Mushroom Hill Zone samples.[ - Character Notes - ]
Played on the general idea of how the Dark Brotherhood game information tried to hide the reveal that the invading force were Echidnas. They looked like robots and information claimed that they were Goats.
Considering the Twilight Cage, it is doubtful that the the younger generations of the Echidnas who lived in it have any knowledge of what Mobius looks like. This carries over to potential health issues like lack of sun or lack of some nutrients.
Autotranslate says Talos means ankles. Talon/claw is more obvious but haha if true. Echidna named ankles.
I just wanted to make a neutral character who'd probably help but might sabotage if superiors say jump. Of course, he might decide to ditch the Clan. Its not like they can punish him out here, right..? (He's doomed when they get out one way or another because no matter what he does he could be considered a traitor for not calling back in. Even though he can't.)
