Profile

A legend in his own mind, it is unfortunate that nobody can deny that Doctor Herbert West makes effective and, more importantly, /working/ giant robots from scraps and common off the shelf components. It's truly tragic that he's nutty as a fruitcake as well. While he possesses incredible robotics skills and numerous giant destroyer robots, everything seems to be some elaborate drama to him, and in a world full of magic and horror his scientific achievements are limited in power. West isn't really evil so much as wildly amoral and engrossed in his own little world, wanting to be a great visionary that advances science beyond its limits. He doesn't even realize that his robotic partner, Elsa, is already an advancement that many would consider groundbreaking.

Disadvantages

DISADVANTAGES, CLICK TO EXPAND

Melodramatic: Never simply say something when you can SHOUT it, and never use the simple and easy method when you can advance science by decades by doing it the complicated way! To West, everything is larger than life, and every move he makes must be a new and awe-inspiring sight! He doesn't get it right all the time... or even often... but he tries! Fortunately for everyone else, sometimes 'dramatic' can mean standing quietly with a confident smile. Those who can appeal to his melodrama can easily manipulate him.

Reliant on Equipment: When it all comes down to it, West is a normal human. He needs weaponry and other equipment and devices to put him anywhere near the average Elite, and if caught without he is rapidly defeated by almost anyone. (PL 15 without any equipment)

Pure Science: West has no magical ability at all, and all his inventions are entirely science-based. Some of them analyze magical effects and can counter them(such as Elsa's spell cannon), but otherwise they are purely mechanical. In his own world this is something of a disadvantage, and it is very much a disadvantage when using Demonpain. Being a copy of a magical construct, Demonpain requires magical power to run, and that is something West cannot supply himself. He requires an external source to use his ultimate weapon.

No Common Sense: Frankly, West just doesn't see the forest for the trees sometimes. He often builds titanic robots with some gaping flaw. Sometimes he can predict the flaws, but all too often he will do something stupid like send a robot with exposed iron parts under the ocean, resulting in it rusting rapidly to worthlessness.

Scream to be Heard! June 17th, 2015 A 'concert' by the Noise Marines turns into a much larger conflict.
Wrathborn's LOSAF Adventure February 2nd, 2015 Dear Warden,

I write to you from outside this Book of Heaven to beg for your mercy. We have never met, but fate has caused us to meet with one another in this way because of our natures and the natures of those within.

I speak of my friends, but primarily of Arthur Lowell, for my friends have come to you in order to seek him out. I admit, I do not know you. I do not know of your nature. Do you seek to give people their heaven out of love or hate? A wish for hope, or perhaps a perverse twist, I cannot tell, for I cannot view your pages.

I wish to believe the better of you, that you wish to truly provide happiness. But as people touch the lives of others, we create connections that cannot be easily forsaken. You are undoubtedly experiencing that now, and have experienced this before. The multiverse needs Arthur. Not just Afterus, but many other lands, including the world you reside in, depend on his knowledge, courage, and bravado in order to preserve themselves and find some semblance of peace. This is why he had come to your world in the first place. I do not know if you are cognizant of this, or if you care, but for someone to create a heaven, they have to be capable of some level of empathy, can they not?

We have come to find a release for Arthur. This is a fact that cannot be denied. The terms and nature of this release are up to you. I am fully capable of doing such if needed, however, if you push me and my friends to the limits. But there is no need for a confrontation, nor doe we have to come to dire ends. Anything is possible in this multiverse. If you care to name your price, perhaps we can find a way to come to agreeable terms. There has to be something we can do to solve your own problems, should they exist.

You may wonder why I seek to establish contact. Why I am working so hard when others are already working. I admit to a more... personal interest. I find Arthur to be a fascinating person. He is fun and exciting, and we share many interests. He shows surprising intelligence and maturity under the bravado, he is intelligent and handsome in his own coolkid way. I know there's a lot more under the shell he projects.

But I can tell hs is also in a lot of pain. He needs assistance, something that I do not believe he can receive in this world of heaven that you create. We cannot live in a Heaven forever. We will never grow, and become the kind of person we need to be in order to contribute to the world around us and make it a better place. I want to help him. I want to find a way to heal those scars and give him a way to face the infinite worlds, if not without regret, at least without pain.

I pray that you consider my words and that you will find it in your heart to relent. I am prepared to give a great deal to win his release from your land. This... Heaven.

I await your answer.
