Terri and Rory
Long before the first steam powered robots of the 19th century an unknown tinkerer had created a clockwork robot unlike any other, powered only by the torque of the key in its back.
About this creation

The tinkerer never realized the implications of his invention, so 'Metal Human 1' remained locked up in the workshop, existing only to its creator.


When decades went by and the inventor had long passed away, the robot was discovered and displayed in a museum.


Though MH1 was well maintained and kept, its key was never turned, the body never animated.


Eras of technology came and went: first the steam bots, then the petroleum and battery robots, then autonomous solar powered thinking machines, and the list goes on.


MH1 was transferred many places but ended up in the Kansas museum of antique machines when the collapse of civilization occured in the 23th century.


Modern solar robots had long been scrapped and looted for parts, likely to devise weaponry. It was then that the stranded orphan, Rory, came across the ancient, seemingly obsolete structure of gears and pistons in the abandoned museum.

Through some divine accident, Rory figured to touch the key in the back of this human shaped thing. MH1 grinded to an erect standing position. Rory discovered that it could be moved only by exerting pressure on the hands and leading it to the user's destination. Since then, Rory has named the robot 'Terri" and roams the ruin of the earth with 'her.' Cannibalistic survivors dare not approach what they perceive as a foreign war machine. To this day, Rory can be seen leading her giant silent gaurdian around by the hand: the first and last robot.

A beautiful and very compelling back story, a neat creation and an overall great concept for survival in a barren world. BTW, it reminds me of the very first chapter from a superb comic-book adaptation of Isaac Asimov's "I, Robot" stories by the Spanish comic-book artist Luis Bermejo and comic-book writer Juanjo Santo, edited in 1983. I'm not sure whether translations exist, but just for the visual quality, they're well worth it, and it can also be downloaded from the internet, albeit only in the original Spanish version. There goes a well-deserved 5/5 rating for you, my friend. Peace and Freedom!

Quoting Nowhere man Love it. Great creation and terrific backstory. I personally think the story could be expanded upon, do you mind if I use the scenario for a story of my own? Either way, the robot looks fantastic. All in all, a great moc. Keep on building ~ Nowhereman
You can use some of the backstory, just give props for inspiration ;).
