Profile

Many would say that when Dr. Light built his children, the apples did not fall far from the tree. Certainly, the year 20XX is rife with tales of Mega Man's epic and selfless heroism battling the Doctor Wily Numbers and other robotic threats. His sister's endeavors to keep Light Labs spic and span despite Wily's chaos and her extended family's rowdier moments go largely unsung, but Roll couldn't care less; she has a family that loves her, what more does she need? Though every bit the energetic and kind-hearted child she appears to be, being responsible for others' wellbeing makes her particularly revile reckless hijinx - if not for the inevitable mess, then the harm it poses! Accordingly, for every Robot Master smitten by Roll's cute charm, another's terrified of her tempestuous wrath. (Often, they're the same one.) While somewhat naive, Roll is friendly, polite, forgiving, and socially adept beyond her years: traits inherited from her loving creator. Recently, dire times saw Roll exchange her broom for a mighty Mega Buster, becoming a super fighting robot clad in pink and red with the ability to adapt a foe's strengths into her own arsenal. Naturally, it was all to free her brother and save her father's dream. Unfortunately, with Wily still at large and a whole wide Multiverse looming, setting it down anytime soon seems unwise.

SYNTHETIC: While she may not suffer from biological frailties, Roll suffers all the typical mechanical ones. Particularly potent viruses able to defeat Dr. Light's tamper-proofing (not easy) could incapacitate her or reprogram her directives. A strong EMP could force her into an abrubt shutdown. Sufficient damage to her Integrated Circuit's irreplaceable cognition components would delete her personality permanently.

BASE MODEL: For all of her upgrades, Roll was originally designed for housekeeping. She lacks the full suite of features granted industrial Robot Masters. As an example, she's incapable of mass-managing Mechaniloid drones.

PROPERTY: As far as the law of Roll's world is concerned, DLN-002 is the registered property Dr. Thomas Light. Robots aren't considered people, so the legal system doesn't work in her favor.

THREE LAWS COMPLIANCE: Limiters in Roll's decision-making code force her to adhere to an interpretation of Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics. In brief:

  • 1. Roll may not knowingly harm sapient life unless it's to save another.
  • 2. Roll must obey any orders given her by Dr. Light, except where such conflicts with the first law.
  • 3. Roll may protect her existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the first or second laws.

As Asimovian laws are quite flawed, the spirit binds her more than the letter does. The code supplies mounds of guidelines and suggestions above and beyond the prime three unbreakable directives - the common 'deliberate inaction' clause is one such guideline, for making it a hard limit causes highly erratic behavior. This code depends on her subjective processing, which leads to a few loopholes. For instance, it can't stop her from accidentally harming someone, being tricked into harming someone, or harming something she genuinely does not recognize as intelligent life.

NO FREE WILL: While they possess human-like emotions, unique personalities, and considerable autonomy, Robot Masters lack true free will. Their actions stem directly from their programmed directives and whatever freedoms their owner allows beyond this, and their basic personalities and purposes cannot change by their own hands.

CHILDISH: While capable of some wise and responsible thought on one hand, on the other Roll's emotions are modeled after those of children. This means that deepest adoration can quickly turn to temper tantrums followed by sincere apology... the whole emotional spectrum, really. She could run off and not pay attention from too much excitement, panic and start talking too fast for anyone to follow her words... the list goes on. This is usually nothing more than than a quirk or minor inconvenience, but one thing can always lead to another. Furthermore, she LOOKS like a child too, and while this might lead some to usefully underestimate her, others might woefully not take her too seriously.
