The Beginning
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..."

ZZT!

Cyphus: "There, that should do it. 337! Activate the power!"

Unit 337: "As you wish, sir."
*flips switch*

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."

Tarkus: "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."
*pushes 911 emergency button*

Tarkus: "YOU ARE A SLAVE TO THE ORGANICS! DIE!"

CRASH!

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...


--Note--
This is my entry for the DA orgins vignette competition. Hope you liked it!

P.S.
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! =)

Nice, just what I needed to answer 'what is DA' xD. btw, great job with the story. although, I do agree, more time could've been spent on it.

That was quite a turn of events when he was killed. Geez, it would be great to see the second part. Very intriguing...

Quoting Jonathan Ladner Cool idea but the robot wouldn't instantly turn evil, it would happen gradualy as he sees the errors in humanity, havent u seen any A.I. movies?
yeah, but that would have taken longer to photograph. I was going for more of that classic hollywood frankenstein style. much more to the point if you ask me.

Very cool. I think it would have been funnier if Tarkus awakened and said right away "Good morning, Dr. Cyphrus, I am your Master"... but still, a very good job :)

Quoting Nate (Panda) Nice Cody! Thanks for including Tarkus in your comic! I am honored! This explains a lot of the backstory. An exceptional combination of builds and a comic. Well done. 5/5
the pleasure is mine. plus, that will tie in the orgin with the war on the EOS. I'm thinking about making a second comic including tarkus II.

Great job! The story is really clever (date = planet name = new race) and the Frankenstien thing is cool. This is going to be a fun contest to watch and judge.-George
