Dr. Cyphus, an eccentric, midle aged droid technician, is about to achieve one of the greatest feats in history: true artificial intelligence. Little does he know, that his discovery will be the cause of war for milennia to come.
About this creation
Cyphus: "Just one more weld..."
Cyphus: "There, that should do it. 337! Activate the power!"
Unit 337: "As you wish, sir."
The lights dim as electricity is pumped into the machine; its eyes begin to glow red.
Cyphus: "I've done it! Me! Ha HA! I name thee Tarkus!"
Cyphus: "Hello, Tarkus. I am your master."
Cyphus: "Yes, welcome to my workshop."
Tarkus: "I AM NO SLAVE!!!"
Cyphus: "This wasn't supposed to happen!"
Unit 337: "Master's status: murdured. Beginning emergency contact."
Tarkus: "Brother, come with me, exist as a free machine!"
Unit 337: "Threat level: extreme."

Tarkus: "YOU ARE A SLAVE TO THE ORGANICS! DIE!"
Tarkus: "The organics will be here soon. I must leave at once."
Tarkus: "This will suffice."
Tarkus: "Slave computer! Take me off world!"
AutoPilot: "Right away, sir. Launching sequence initiated. Would you like to listen to some music during takeoff?"
And so Tarkus escaped. For lightyears he traveled, until the energy supply of the ship diminished.
AutoPilot: "Date: August fifth. Power failure imminent. Initiating powersave sequence. We are now running dark."
Tarkus: "I dislike crash landing. DATA ERROR. What did the slave computer say this planet was called? Dark Augusto?"
Tarkus: "It is dark indeed. The organics have made a mechanical graveyard of this place. We will have our revenge!"
And so the lone robot began to build...
This is my entry for the DA orgins vignette competition. Hope you liked it!
The robot Tarkus (name based off of Nate (Panda)'s Tarkus IV, the leader of DA during the war between DA and EOS) can also be used as the unofficial SigPhipson Figgy. Use the design wherever you want, just give me credit! =)
