Phalanx Civilian faceclaim.jpg

Phalanx is Captain of the Devilfish Protectorate, having formerly been a core member of the Minneapolis Protectorate prior to his promotion and transfer. Phalanx is one of the Premier Artificial Intelligence Tinkers, and has served the Protectorate Faithfully for the past 6 years, and even longer if you count his time as a PRT trooper.

He has been upfront and clear to all who would fight him, that excessive force against his Android Daughter Pleiades will be responded with both the unrelenting force of a Protectorate Captain responding to violence against a Ward, as well as a very angry father with readily accessible Death rays.

He and the majority (but not all) of his gear is Greco-Roman themed, something he has mentioned is in honor of his heritage. Being both ethnically Greek, and a Hellenic Pagan.

Mentality

Jasper is a relatively jovial person, greatly respecting his co-workers, Protectorate, Ward, Trooper, and Clerk alike. They do their best to remain professional whenever possible, but have trouble not looking at the team like a big family. Feeling somewhat parental over the Wards at time, though they keep this to themselves usually.

Jasper has changed since their trigger, having mellowed out oddly enough, compared to the more serious person they had been when working as a PRT trooper pre-trigger.

Heroism is not just a job for Phalanx, they are genuinely called to be the best they can be, and while heroism is a major part of their life, they consistently endeavor to not let it consume them, or to let it be the sole focal point in their life.

Jasper is a follower of Hellenism, though they aren't usually forward about it. They are also Transgender and Pansexual, the later two being clear if you pay attention to context clues, thought they are a private person about Religion, Gender, and Orientation.

Power

Trigger Type: Single Natural Trigger.

Phalanx is a tinker, specifically a variant of a 'Theme Team Tinker' (Controller X Free) Capable of building Artifical Intelligence.

Consisting of Virtual Intelligence (100% digital), Robots (100% hardware), and Androids (A mix of both), each type of which can have countless variations, and are more broad categories than strict ones.

He touches on Free tinkering, but not with as much depth as others. He can build lasers, hard-light, anti-gravity, Meta-Materials, Power sources, and other science-fiction staples...

But these tend to be more limited/weaker than you'd see in a specialized tinker, or a Free Tinker with a stronger drawback, and tend to manifest as components or equipment for outfitting his Minions.

He his however heads and tails above most others in the field of Software and AI, even compared to other tinkers.

His more complicated AI are rather Alien in Mindset, though he excels at coding filters that allow these Mindsets to function akin to a human, animal, or to specific specifications.

For the sake of balancing, I have devised a method of categorizing his creations, and an associated point system, based around the Complexity of his creations, and the associated Maintenance.

He has a total of 12 Points to spend, on AI, Code, and Equipment, and I will be marking all his tech submissions Accordingly.

Backstory

Like many children, Jasper wanted to be a Hero when they were a kid. Things didn’t work out that way though. But a successful career in the PRT was rewarding in its own way. Jasper would even argue that putting your life on the line to help others meant more when you weren’t a bullet-proof Modern-day Demi-god.

This wasn’t just a job for Jasper, it was a life-calling. But on Earth Kaff, all good things must end in tears. During one fateful operation Jasper and his squad was disabled by a potent emotion-manipulator. To this day Jasper is uncertain why it affected him so much more than his squad-mates (not that they didn’t have a rough time too).

The others took sometime to recover from the long-term negative effects, perhaps a month of downtime on average. Power-induced PTSD was no joke after all, but it seemed that the effects wore off with time with minimal lasting effects.

Not so for Jasper though, perhaps Jasper was simply more inclined towards Agoraphobia, but the PTSD had left Jasper a grade-A agoraphobe and Insomniac. They were able to tough through things at first, so they returned to active duty (barely passing psych checks) but their performance quickly dropped. His comradery with his co-workers fizzled out, and their combat effectiveness was hampered. The PRT discharged Jasper, putting them on reserve, so that Psychiatric help could be given.

Months passed, with minimal progress, Jasper isolated themselves from civilian friends, and family, video calls with their Therapist continued, and Jasper found some solace in the form of digital media, but things remained stagnant, and alone. Efforts to improve were continually met with setbacks, this continued for months.

TRIGGER

The PRT Therapist was alarmed when Jasper ceased communications, concerned that Jasper had taken their own life, they called the police, and the paramedics.

Jasper was not dead, but had simply dismantled every electronic device he owned in a fugue-state, having constructed most of a Bipedal Robot. Jasper remained unresponsive to the Police and Paramedics in his home, and the PRT were dispatched when it was clear this was a parahuman matter.

Their Trigger had left them different, they still had agoraphobia, but something had fundamentally changed, that allowed a gradual recovery. Legally they were now a member of the Protectorate, and while it took over a year and a half of concerted self-improvement to recover to the point that they were allowed on active duty. Jasper flourished as a protectorate hero.

Tinker Tech

Elysian Steel (Stable)

Its physical properties are akin to high-grade steel, with any small differences being negligible. With Its most notable and unique property being that it is entirely 100% non-conductive, and does not rust. Making it all but immune to electrical attacks. Produced by Phalanx in large batches that can be stored in one of two ways, Ingots that can be melted down by himself or allies for later use in special molds, or in large containers of metallic powder for use in a metal 3d printer. Phalanx has taken the liberty of forging a supply of melee weaponry. swords, knives, pole-arms, and shields of varying sizes. As well as a couple of Gladiatorial nets woven from the material. Set aside in the Armory.

Chthonic Steel (Stable)

Its physical properties are akin to high-grade steel, with any small differences being negligible. With Its most notable and unique property being that it acts as a perfect Faraday cage and radiation shield

With Phalanx encasing his most valuable systems with this material to protect them from EMPs, and dangerous radiation. Blocks all but the most esoteric of wavelengths. Produced by Phalanx in very small batches usually for a specific project, usually computer systems as well as the brains and processors in his androids and robots

Mentality

Argus is rather calm even under pressure, in part because of a superiority complex, feeling that he is above many human failings, as a result he can sometimes be a bit of a twat when morality or philosophy come up in conversation.

Argus hand designed his own physical appearance, intentionally looking like a younger and more feminine/androgynous Phalanx. He doesn't really care for human gender, and only uses he/him because thats what Phalanx uses.

Argus cares for his older sister Leia, though he enjoys needling her, as is tradition for younger brothers, though he has been supportive of her more turbulent emotions post-trigger.

He enjoys reading, writing, and coding. He has taken it upon himself to moderate a large number of forums, servers, and communities. And contribute to fact-checking and spell-checking wikis. Works on open-source coding projects sometimes.

He is naturally suspicious and inquisitive, originally designed to be a Cyber-warfare and Intelligence AI, he's expressed interest in working with SWORDFISH and NUCLEUS, inspired by SWORDFISH's PANOPTICON AI, and by his father's colleagues in NUCLEUS' AI research division.
