The Construct

Background

You were luckier than the rest of the Doctor’s companions. When he first brought you online, you both knew your creator and that he cared for you. What biological being can say the same?

As your consciousness developed, the time you spent with him expanded your knowledge and computational ability more than any other path. When he died, you were devastated. The others lost a friend, a confidante, a role model. You lost the only family you had ever known.

Tags Moves Gear
+ any Construct Move
  • Clothing suitable to your look, if applicable.
  • An energy transceiver (+implanted). It is highly sensitive to all forms of energy, including exotic particles. When relevant, take +1 on Reading a Dire Situation. 
  • Integrated protection (+armour). Also suitable to your look. This can mean it’s invisible to the naked eye. You may use it to reroll once when Tempting Fate. Describe how it saves your life when you do so. This destroys it, but it regenerates at the beginning of the next session. A Whiz can also repair it if they spend 2-scrap. A weapon created like a full hit on the Whiz move Aggressive Improvisation. It’s not in danger of falling apart, and does not cost scrap. This weapon may have +implanted for free.
Vortex Tags + another Construct Move
Emotional Keys If you are +androgyne — you get the stuff and trappings appropriate to a middle class lifestyle. Otherwise, you live in squalor. It’s hard for an inhuman robot to get on the dole.
Pick two: Nobility, Optimism, Guilt.
Experience Fate Spark
(_) (_) (_) (_) (_) >> Improvement Romance Move

Improvements Sometimes biological beings fall for you. When you can manage a moment of intimacy, their History with you resets, and you mark experience. It’s usually a bizarre experience for them, and an enlightening one for you.
