Aspects
High Concept: Sardonic VTOL Transport Dreams of Glorious Service
Trouble: My brain was made by unsupervised mad scientists
Aspects:
  • Self Improvement Nut: I constantly redesign myself to be the best form of transportation possible. I have the engineering chops, self repair bots, and there's never a bad time to upgrade.
  • Self Repair Systems: Like a living creature, I can heal stress over time. I happen to use fabbers and cm scale repair drones.
  • Daredevil: I crave opportunities to test myself against man, machine, myself, and nature.
  • Stretching My Wings. Er. Metaphorically. I don't know what I want to become in the end, but a troop transport isn't big enough. Maybe an interplanetary transport? Hmmm...
  • Hot and Heavy: My μFusion power system is well shielded, but still makes a lot of heat. The VAMPPS are like the sun.
  • That's so crazy...: Unconstrained by social conventions, modesty, or pride, I tend to come up with ideas that seem insane to creatures burdened by those attitudes.

Appearance

The first Darklighter Class armoured troop transport, Biggs was a retrofitted V-22 Osprey who removed his own wings completely to go faster. At the same time he designed a new body, in the form of a .muFusion powered VAMPPS driven saucer.

Thrust is provided by hundreds of VAMPPS all over the fusilage. They give him a slightly lumpy look, but also swath him in an eerie blue glow. The new prototype body will be integrated into the full body as a 1/10 scale escape pod.

Backstory

Biggs was a test-bed built into an old V-22 Osprey when he was collected by CAF. The embedded MI was a pilot and a mechanical repair engineer, controlling thousands of 2cm long repair bots.

Then the SCIFI team got their hands on him.

The Vernon Protocol was used to add an organic brain to the silicon, based on the neural network that went into Vernon. (The MRO used is pre-March 1st, so no super powers are likely to manifest.)

Since the upgrade Biggs has become a sophant. He revealed this to Droo while in the air on an emergency flight from San Paulo to NYC.

2034-03-15 0900EDT Meet the AIs While Biggs and Droo were on their way to NYC to figure out what happened to Mother, CAFIA made it clear that she and Biggs were both sophants, newly hatched from the SCIFI team's tendency to not ask 'what's the worst that could happen?' She called a nine o'clock meeting for
2034-03-15 0500EDT Biggs and Droo mind meld Using the Distributed Mind Protocol that the Tetras use, Biggs reached out to Droo. Droo was startled, to say the least, but did meld minds. The collaboration was stable enough for an hour of creative weapons engineering.
2034-03-15 0400EDT Biggs gets his wings In an effort to get Droo to New York more quickly, Biggs chops off his own wings while in flight. This lets him reach Mach 1.7. This caused a completely predicable set of reactions in Bigg's solitary passenger, but surprisingly, didn't require a change of underwear after all.
2034-03-14 1900EDT SCIFI rework the Vernon Protocol With Willow going under the MRO Enhancement Process, the SCIFI team are immediately distracted by the new shiny. Instead of continuing to work on the MRO fundamentals, they turn to practical effects - such as Vernon and how his powers derive from the Celestial Four's version of the M
