This is part-interest check, part-character creation advice. Lately, I've been interested in playing a character that was a bit less time and energy intensive, yet still fun to play and play with. My solution is Mikali, an 11 foot tall, probably sentient war robot reminiscent of ED 209, albeit with a cutesy, girlish personality. I'd like her to be something that's as much a piece of equipment as a supporting character: Called upon during the plot for specific purposes at specific times, yet not always involved in the entire proceedings. The main piece of her profile that needs attention is both her history and her equipment/loadout, for a few different reasons: To an extent, I want her initial history to be influenced by the plotship or faction that she initially becomes a part of. Maybe she's sold to the protags in an auction, or perhaps she's discovered floating in an abandoned cargo container or ruined laboratory. Thus, I'd love to know who might be interested in having an 11 foot tall death machine in their plot so I can figure out her backstory. I'd really prefer to not have to go too in depth as to who her creators are and why she was created, as right now, that defeats her whole purpose to me as a fun, little character who I can jump in and play when she's called upon. Her creator isn't supposed to matter much, beyond ideally a few sentences of exposition. Obviously, her initial equipment would probably also vary depending on when and who discovers her and gives her some weapons. Gimme feedback, personal opinions and soul-destroying criticism, pls.
