[[Vincent Vintner]] :: [[Vince]] :: [[JJ]] :: [[Vincent]]

Aspects
High Concept: Uplifted Gorilla and Floof obsessively protecting a new class of Sophant.
Trouble: It takes surprisingly little adversity to make me lose it.
Aspects:
  • Vince: 800lb of gorilla with dominance issues and a lack of subtlety.
  • JJ: A beautiful floof, with a surprising brain, and So. High. Strung.
  • Father of a Race: I must ensure the Narnians survive and advance with agency.
  • Of Two Minds: My bodies must be within 5m of each other to remain properly networked. If my connection is broken I revert to panicking, terrified, confused animals with near human intelligence.
Fate Points
Refresh: 3 Current Total 3
Approaches
Careful Clever Flashy Forceful Quick Sneaky
+1 +3 +3 +4 +4 -2
Sophant Characteristics
  • Uplifts are genetically modified gorillas, chimpanzees, ravens, and parrots, all with neural laces and permanent mental bonds to uplifted dogs. An Uplift is incomplete and likely suicidal if either half of the creature is disconnected - the dog or the other mind.
  • Gorilla: Huge, intimidating animal with strong social dominance drives. 1 Careful, +1 Clever, +1 Flashy, +3 Forceful, +1 Quick, -1 Sneaky, then 3, 2, 2, 1, 1, 0 as desired. Mental Stress: 1. Physical Stress: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Consequences: 2, 4, 6.
  • Tiny Sentry: +2 Quick, -2 Forceful. [Breed] are sentries who raise the alarm, and fast scrappers. I am terrifically alert.
  • Hypersensitive: +1 Careful, -1 Sneaky. [Breed] are anxious and high strung. When an aspect of our environment changes we become terribly anxious.
  • Companion: Mental Stress 1. Physical Stress 1. Consequences 2. +6 Refresh. Small, weak, paranoid, and neurotic.
Stunts
  • Oratory: +2 to Forcefully intimidate (create an advantage over) an opponent by being Kong Jr. and Mr. Floof.
  • Inspire: +2 to Flashily inspire (create an advantage for/over) an ally by being Kong Jr. and Mr. Floof.
Magic: Spells and Powers
Augmentation: Genetic and Cybernetic
  • Stiff Brain: Neural Lace provides resistance to concussions, reducing any concussion consequence by 2 points.
  • Vulnerable to strong magnets: The Neural Lace is vulnerable to strong (1T+) magnetic fields, which can disrupt or damage it.
  • Super Senses: +2 to Cleverly sense something hidden or obscured as a Gorilla and PomPoo pair. Our hearing, sense of smell, and vision are greatly enhanced (10/20 vision from IR to UV and colours humans are colourblind to).
Damage Resistance and Healing
Teams:
Stuff
  • Neural Lace: Nanowire Perfusion provides a good resolution brain-computer interface (BCI). Invoke with one fate point to temporarily induce +2 to one Approach and -1 to all others.

Appearance

I'm a neurally linked 800lb gorilla (340kg, 208cm tall, and has an armspan of 315cm) and golden floof (10kg Papillon / Pomeranian mix).

Backstory

Vincent is the Gorilla half. JJ is the dog half. We're heteromammalian life partners. We have been mentally connected for two years.

Vincent

Vincent was the most exceptional child of the second generation of the Narnia Project. Operating in the Amazon and funded by Pfizer. His mates (3) and children (15) are the first non-human sophants on the modern Earth.

He was modified from the baseline gorilla in many ways. The first generation had their vocal apparatus modified to allow them to make human speech sounds. Vince is part of generation 2, which added significant structural changes to the brain. Gorilla neurons were replaced with much smaller human neurons, increasing the count to a respectable average human (80 billion). This change altered the brain structure to allow for a much more human neuroanatomy.

The reason he is twice the size of a normal gorilla - approaching 800lb - is to accommodate his brain. A natural male gorilla averages around 170kg, 165cm tall, 2.5m armspan and 750cm3 of cranial capacity. All bodily dimensions were increased by 126% to cause a total volume increase of 200%. This means Vince is 340kg, 208cm tall, and has an armspan of 315cm.

His fitness score is so high because his cognitive and vocalization skills match most human capacities - not because of his size. His linguistic ability is near human average, and his ability to reason is in the same range. His guts and digestive tract are more efficient than his progenitors, but he still has to eat a lot and supplement his diet with probiotics that can digest meats and carbohydrates more easily.

Oh, and having a lace installed so young? He's very good at AR and VR, and there is no clear demarcation where "his" thoughts end an JJ's begin.

All told, Vince is a young, reasonably intelligent 743lb homo gorilla with anger issues and a family to take care of.
