Profile

Bladewolf (also known as LQ-84i, or IF Prototype LQ-84i to give the full name) is a quadrupedal Unmanned Gear with a learning optical Neuro-AI and prototype verbal interface. Developed three years ago as a weapon, he was considered a failure until discovered and reactivated by Desperado Enforcement LLC, who forced him to obey their orders without question, or they would wipe his memory. Now freed, this weapon shows his 'flaw'; his unwillingness to employ violence, doing his utmost to avoid battles and harming others, arguably more sympathetic to his fellow man than an actual fellow man. Armed with a chainsaw stored in his back, HF throwing knives and claws, he can be a highly lethal weapon with his high speed and agility, if forced into a fight. Having been rebuilt completely free of Desperado's control, he follows his own directives: to protect freedom where he can, and to repay the debts he owes to his friends.

Disadvantages

DISADVANTAGES, CLICK TO EXPAND
  • Electronic
As an AI, Bladewolf is susceptible to EMP attacks. Although he automatically shuts down all circuitry when an electrical surge is detected, this does mean that he would have to reboot all its systems, leaving him disabled for anywhere between five and sixty seconds, depending on the strength of the burst. Furthermore, if someone manages to breach his firewalls (which would require a direct connection to him), he can be hacked much like any other UG.
  • Mechanical
Unlike organics, Bladewolf has nothing to gain from medical attention. Instead, he requires repairs and maintenance. Furthermore, his field repairs would be more difficult due to the advanced nature of his construction ((heals would be at lower power unless the healer has relevant experience)). Furthermore, only spells that repair broken objects would have a positive effect on him, though such spells would only fix physical faults, not faults in his programming or intrusions.
  • Energy Dependency
Bladewolf uses molten carbonate fuel cells, MCFC, to power himself. A single fully-charged cell would give up to two days continued operation, though stressful combat drains the cell faster. Furthermore, the high-frequency module in his weapons can only function at a high power level and, when in use, rapidly drains power. Cells can be recharged in one of two ways; He can recharge himself via mains or absorb the charge from cells he 'acquires' from cyborgs or Unmanned Gears from his world, however these cells are fragile and will break if not immediately used.
50% charge: At this charge level, the HF modules shut down to conserve power, weakening their combat effectiveness ((PL drop)).
25% charge: At this charge level, the chainsaw weapon is unavailable, limiting him to throwing knives.
5% charge: At this level, Bladewolf enters a stand-by state, powered down almost completely, yet immobile and unresponsive.
  • Pacifist
With his new-found freedom from Desperado, Bladewolf has expressed more than just a desire to avoid battle. Bladewolf goes out of his way to avoid fights where possible, and in those cases where he can't, still questions the need for it and will hold back so as not to seriously injure the other. Only in rare cases, such as non-sentient monsters, will he actually fight to kill, but even then he would still be saddened over the necessity of violence. In practice, this means he would never ambush people, despite his stealth camo technology, and always attempt a diplomatic solution first.

History

Bladewolf was originally built as a weapon to replace human combatants and cyborgs. The combat tasks required that he be able to make intelligent decisions and communicate, which resulted in the addition of the prototype communications interface. While the project succeeded in teaching the LQ-84i how to communicate, the project was deemed a failure as he lacked the brutality inherent in humanity. He was shut down after three years of testing, until Desperado Enforcement, LLC., a private military contractor, found and reactivated him at Sundowner's request, adding an AI wipe and remote control function to keep him obedient.

Some time later, he was deployed into Detroit's sewer system to intercept Samuel Rodrigues, who at the time was attempting to kill the leaders of World Marshall, another PMC. While he met Sam, he was unable to defeat him and was destroyed, but repaired later. With Samuel now a member of Desperado, he grew to look up to him and fought alongside him in three missions. While Sundowner viewed him as useless, Mistral decided to have him operate under her command, though Bladewolf believed this was due to her seeking companionship and liking dogs. She put him through a series of VR training missions, preparing him for deployment. During this time, he was introduced to another Desperado member, Khamsin, who informed him that his directive was to 'ensure freedom', which perplexed Bladewolf, as he had no freedom itself. Despite this conflict, Mistral decided hw was ready for combat deployment and kept him prepared and ready.

During an operation in Abkhazia, Mistral deactivated Bladewolf's range inhibitor, which caused him to attack her and retrieve the inhibitor for himself, staging an escape from Desperado. He fought through the streets with the aid of Elites who had responded to Mistral's call for the 'rogue AI's' destruction. Instead, they, alongside Jetstream Sam, assisted in his escape. The group was eventually confronted by Khamsin, engraged that Bladewolf would abandon the country's freedom, and attacked the group. Bladewolf killed Khamsin himself, but at that point Mistral revealed it was part of her plan to eliminate Khamsin for good, activating the real range inhibitor and immobilizing him. While the other Elites managed to disable it, Bladewolf sacraficed himself to take an attack meant for Sam, being blown apart in the process. A while later, he was rebuilt with the aid of Taro, who asked the AI what he wanted. Bladewolf decided to set out on his own, free of Desperado and the Confederacy, and discover his own directives instead.
