ALTERNATE MODE: Attack VTOL
QUOTE: “If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence you tried.”
Catalyst is a relatively young member of the Sigman race, and seems to embody the features of a child in many ways. He is prone to bursts of emotion, unlike most Sigmans, and can be highly energetic. He will often shoot first and ask questions later... lots and lots of questions. Catalyst has recently began to attempt to decifer the language of the Invaders. Hindered by not knowing they can speak a variety of languages, his progress has been non-existent.
In VTOL form, Catalyst is armed with two sets of missile launchers and a pair of heavy machine guns on stub pylons, one of each being either side of him.
In his robot form, the missile launchers move from stub pylons on the sides to what becomes his chest, and the automatic weapons rotate to the outer portion of the pylon to attach to the back of each of his stubby arms.
The missiles loaded into his stub pylons can be either High Explosive, or Inferno quality, though he is discouraged to use them by his superiors. The pair of heavy machine guns are often outfitted with armor piercing rounds, in order to cause maximum damage.
An ambush tactician, Catalyst was formatted with an ECM suite. His sealed armor prevents electron and heat leaks, as is designed to bend both light and sound in an amazing way, which allows him to be temporarily invisible to the eye and ear, and allows him to go undetected by thermal and electron scanners, for approximately twenty minutes, and requires twenty minutes to recharge. Damage to Catalyst can cause the device to malfunction, rendering him visible, or audible, or both, depending on severity of damage.
While not incredibly strong or tough, Catalyst can lay down a massive amount of firepower in a short time period, but only for a short time period, and he is not well suited for close combat.
A new spark glows in Catalyst. He was designed to be a zealous enforcer, with speed, power, and more than enough intelligence to adapt to most given situations. While he has not questioned the Gor openly, he has often been perilously close to disregarding orders. While he keeps his thoughts to himself, his actions speak louder than his words.
NAME: Hector "Godspeed" Gilchrist
DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: Lame left arm/legs
PLACE OF BIRTH: Texas
NATIONALITY: United States Citizen
QUOTE: "I do not fail, I merely succeed in finding what does not work."
Hector Gilchrist was born to Godfrey and Julianna Gilchrist down in the southern portion of the North American continent. Nearly strangled by his own umbilical cord at birth, Hector was born with lame legs, and a useless right arm.
His parents were poor, and Hector has lived his life in a wheel chair. He stubbornly insisted that he would walk one day, and has been obsessed with cybernetic limb replacement since he first heard about it. As fortune would have it, he carried a genetic birth defect, which would cause an 'allergy' to normal cybernetic prosthetics.
But Hector would not be deterred, and went into the fields of medicine and cybernetics in order to find a more compatible cybernetic process. His desire for a more normal life drove him to achieve where an average student may not have.
His studies in the medical field, as well as his work as a cyberneticist, have allowed him to become a top surgeon, as well as a talented technician, but after formal surgeon training, Hector had problems finding a hospital that would accept a handicapped surgeon like himself.
He eventually became a very bitter man, working at a low income clinic, secretly testing modified cybernetic implants on patients, hopeful it would lead to a compatible cyber-bionic limb for himself. As far as Hector knows, no one found out about his tests... but apparently he did impress someone, and the military offered him a laboratory and extensive funding in exchange for his service as a surgeon.
Hector is a doctor, but by no means a pacifist. Once bound to a limited wheelchair, Hector has since upgraded to a more comfortable and lightly armored hoverchair, which houses a hidden Short-Range, High-Powered Plasma Rifle in the arm of his hoverchair, and sports a short term environmental breather. It also contains an extensive scanning array to help with his surgeries, as well as the ability to lean him into a slightly more upright position so that he may work more properly.
Beyond this, Surgeon Gilchrist is an extremely intelligent man, skillful with precision cuts of the laser scalpel and rifle.
Being a human, Surgeon Gilchrist is as organic as they come. He's also limited to using only one arm, as his other is lame, though he was working on a prototype cybernetic arm which was damaged during the crash of the Pegasus.
Gilchrist is also genetically flawed. His body is 'allergic' to normal cybernetic grafts and genetic tampering.
