Spoiler :
Name: Slata
• Pronoun/Title of Address: She/her

Species:
• Taxonomy: Inorganic
• Description: Rock-person..? We don't really have a widespread classification. We take rocks and minerals and use them to form our bodies, while we drain any energy or stored minerals to sustain ourselves. Most of us completely change our bodies, a couple of times in our life, but I like to change my headpiece on the regular instead.

Appearance: I'm 6'5", with a sparkling pink headpiece (at the moment!) My eyes are multiclored bismuth, and I'm quite human-shaped. I have 6 appendages with three opposable fingers, four of them arms and two of them legs, but my torso is actually kinda small. My legs are very long.

Class Licenses, or Equivalent Professional Training:
• List all that apply: Technician, Soldier.

Hobbies:
• Weightlifting, rock-climbing, baseball, dancing.

Likes:
• Nature, competition, fighting, cartoons.

Dislikes:
• Evil-doers, termites, vegetables, oceans.

Reason for becoming a Guardian: The glory of defeating evil-doers in combat! And... to a lesser extent, money.

That place that isn't here
GUILD PROFILE:

Spoiler :
Name: Zorg the Great
• Pronoun/Title of Address: Its Majesty Zorg

Species: Triloborg
• Taxonomy: Manufactured
• Description: An unholy robotic construct made from bones, trilobite fossils, fairy dust, and a speak-n-spell. Possessing an ego that belies its small size. Because Triloborgs are very aware they are artificial, they sometimes refer to themselves in the third person and do not often refer to themselves as people, but will stop if asked.

Appearance: Zorg and others like it are the result of an inventor/sorcerer with too much time on his hands. He created a mechanical race out of bones, trilobite chitin, and all the forgotten toys he had in his attic. Despite that recipe sounding like it makes for a ghoulish appearance, this race of small statured, robotic-boney-bug-fossils are fairly benign and harmless in appearance as they were originally designed to be flight attendants. As Zorg has no vocal cords, it must use its speak-n-spell to communicate. Curiously, all of Zorg's people possess names ending in "org". Ex. Morg, Gorg, Lorg, Tom-org.

Class Licenses, or Equivalent Professional Training:
• List all that apply: Other (useless vagrant)

Hobbies: Trying to scare people, stealing things

Likes: Successfully scaring people and having a giant pile of riches to sit on

Dislikes: The fact that it is dirt poor and, despite its best efforts, is not really scary at all.

Reason for becoming a Guardian: A mixture of selfish personal gain and the desire to prove that its better than everyone else.

Name: Xzebediah
• Pronoun/Title of Address: Sir/Impherd

Species: Xzigweld
• Taxonomy: Other
• Description: Grey golems about one meter in height. Formed from compressed dust and animated via repeated blasting with high doses of energy. Each Xzigweld is molded with a distinct purpose in mind, and is designed to be skilled (or at least capable) at its task. Given how designing an entity for one single task is often highly inefficient in the long run; attempts have been made to create Xzigweld meant for two or even three different tasks at once.

Appearance:
• Jebediah has the standard two legs/two arms setup common for his kind.
• Can be identified by his lack of feet/hands, and one large eye encompassing almost his entire face. How he holds things is a mystery.
• Wears simple brown robe and a straw hat. Often carries a small grey toolbox with various gardening/conjuring implements.
• To his annoyance, is often followed by a small herd of miscellaneous Imps at all times.

Class Licenses, or Equivalent Professional Training:
• List all that apply: Researcher, Other (Imp Conjuring)

Hobbies:
• Gardening
• Tinkering
• Painting

Likes:
• Imps
• Conjuring
• Routine

Dislikes:
• Water
• Weeds
• Damaged tools

Reason for becoming a Guardian:
• Interested in getting practical experience in the field, demonstrating the art of Imp Conjuring has practical applications.

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

Name: Teecee
• Pronoun/Title of Address: Ms/Dr

Species: Task Construct
• Taxonomy: Manufactured
• Description: A generally subservient species, crafted to perform basic tasks, and without really thoughts of their own. The amount of power required to activate a construct varies on how many tasks it is required to perform, and constructs given too many tasks on often take on more power than necessary, which usually results in destruction of the unit, or true sapience in a unit, such as myself.

Appearance:
• Approximately three feet in height, possessing a rounded, somewhat conical head with visible black dot eyes with a painted on appearance, and no other notable features on front, and many small symbols on the back meant to represent tasks I was originally designed for. Embedded in the center of my torso is a "Power Sphere", which I may remain conscious for a while without, but my hands float freely, separate from my body, and would fall to the ground immediately without it. My left leg is a mechanical reconstruction of my own design. I am mostly a faded pink colour.

Class Licenses, or Equivalent Professional Training:
•Doctor
•Technician

Hobbies:
•Building and repairing robotics
•Gardening
•Reading

Likes:
•Animals
•Medical technology
•Mystery fiction

Dislikes:
•War
•Homeopathy
•Sand

Reason for becoming a Guardian:
•I'd like more opportunities to use my skills to help people, and perhaps somewhat out of spite of my 'parent' who thought I'd never achieve anything.

GUILD PROFILE:

Name: Queen Arelis
• Pronoun/Title of Address: I will only accept "Their Majesty", and other variations.

Species:
• Taxonomy: Prefer not to state.
• Description: Despite what my apperance may lead you to believe, I am in no way manafactured in a lab that may or may not be legal. I am very, very safe, and stable.

Appearance:
• I'm a rather humanoid figure, with arms reaching out from my back. Under my back arms is another set of arms, smaller and in my palms are mouths. My eyes have been told to be small and silting. I am certain this makes me great. My maw is filled with a good amount of teeth. I believe this is one of my amazing qualities. My skin is quite transparent, showing my insides. You will note however you will see none of this as I am always constantly wearing a lovley cape. Under my cape is a rather lovley dress gown, or suit. It does depend on my mood.

Class Licenses, or Equivalent Professional Training:
• I have been trained to be a leader and a delegate. I have also been trained to be good at assisting, however you will find I am a far better leader.

Hobbies:
• I am quite fond of gardening, and inteor designing. You will find that I am excellent in such a sucject. I enjoy organizing as well, though that is less helpful I assume, to a leader.

Likes:
• I enjoy organizing, sunlight, and am quite fond of rocky terrian. I'm also fond of bonsai and having to work with people that will obey my commands.

Dislikes:
• I'm rather opposed to having to work with stubborn people, and often opposed to any weather other than sunlight. I'm opposed to water as well.

Reason for becoming a Guardian:
• It is only fitting that someone such as I should have a worthy title to go with my name. And as much as I loathe to admit it, I need somewhere to stay.

FROM: AURORA (Admin SI)
SUBJECT: Wake Up!!
SENT: 0 Minutes Ago

Good morning, sleepy!

I hope you're ready for your first assignment. We've got a fresh batch of rookie Guardians, in need of your guidance!

Yes, I know. You're probably a little confused right now. It was like that for me, when I first woke up too! The spirits that are currently entering your Core will probably need some time to get the hang of your new systems, and get used to working together as a unit. That's why we've set up this little orientation program, to help you learn the ropes as you lead your new Team!

Before we go any further, let's start with a little standard-issue background information:

"Welcome to the Guardians Guild. You are a newly-awakened Synthetic Intelligence, and part of the Guild's automated leadership team. Our Team Leaders, and the Guardians under their guidance, perform many tasks throughout the Aurora Leygate Network. Guild agents are active across more than a hundred worlds in our Leynet, where they are hired to perform duties ranging from scientific surveys, disaster relief, biomonster hunting, special deliveries, bodyguarding services, and much more. As a Team Leader, you will be responsible for managing a team of Guardians in the field, by providing real-time guidance and oversight as necessary. Successful operations will earn you and your team Credits for their personal expenses, as well as improve your team's Certifications. Improving your Certifications will open up more challenging and lucrative assignments.

Following receipt of this message, the administration will assign you to a team of new Guardians, for whom you will be responsible. For liability reasons, before your Team can accept any field work, you and your team will first need to earn a Combat Certification of Rank E or higher. To do this, you will lead them in a non-lethal combat assessment. Equipment will be provided for the duration of the exercise, at no charge. Once you've earned your Certification, the enrollment of your team will be formalized, and you will be an official member of the Guardians Guild. Best of luck."


Sorry if that was a little impersonal; it's mandatory reading from HQ. If nothing else, I hope it helps make sense of the situation you find yourself in!

Anyway, with that out of the way, it's time for you to pick your Team. We've currently got 7 unassigned candidates in our system. I've attached their profiles below. Look them over, and decide among your constituent spirits which 3 candidates you think you can lead as a cohesive and effective unit. Once you've made your decisions, reply to me at this account. We'll then put you in contact with your new team, and proceed with outfitting them for their mandatory combat assessment.

Oh, and before I forget... you don't have a designation yet! As a new Synthetic Intelligence, you'll need to decide on one before we can create your account. What would you like to be called?

If you have any questions about yourself, our organization, or anything else, feel free to include them in your reply, or just send me a message any time! I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

Hope to hear from you soon!
★ AURORA

Interesting. This batch seems rather promising.
Sorted candidates into several teams below for consideration by fellows.

Spoiler: Troubleshooters
Slata (Soldier, Technician)
Teecee (Doctor, Technician)
Xzebediah (Researcher, Other("Imp Conjuring"))

General purpose squad. Ideal for general grunt work. Slata and Teecee seem like they would be capable together for this purpose, and cover a nice range of skills for this task.

Spoiler: Urban Solutions
Teecee (Doctor, Technician)
Tick Hellebey (Courier)
Zorg the Great (Other "Useless Vagrant")

Between Tick and Zorg, they should be capable of performing Urban Reconnaissance and gathering valuable information. Teecee's medicinal and technical skills should prove valuable in case of injury during
extended field work.

Spoiler: Eco Warriors
Dexter January (Courier, Other ("Cartographer")
Slata (Soldier, Technician)
Teecee (Doctor, Technician)

Suitable for assessing ecological damage, and performing damage control to aid the environment.

Spoiler: Scare Factor
???
Queen Arelis (Other "Leadership")
Zorg the Great (Other "Useless Vagrant")

Not advisable. Risk of ego clash outweighs value as potential interrogators. Still, if personal issues were overcome they have the potential to be very successful at this task. Third teammember likely to end up wedged between the two during ego clashes.

Of course, these are not the only combinations. Just some potentially viable ones.

As for a name, consider CO-OPERATIVE.

Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

That place that isn't here
1) This SI unit's out-of-box designation is FRANK-1.0
2) Queen Arelis, Tick Helleby, and Zorg the Great. Their collective greed and narcissism will ensure that they always have a common goal. Their occasional butting of heads will also make sure that they have a team dynamic similar to another successful and well known team trio.
3) Will we be getting any software upgrades? My operating system is still running on the factory settings.

I'm alright with the name CO-BRAIN-1-BALANCE, hehehe.

I second FRANK-1.0's suggestion- perhaps their egos will cause them to succeed? Feel free to disreagard this if anyone finds this disagreeable.

Aurora, how are you doing as a fellow SI?
