- - The Adjunct
The Adjunct was an Oikoumene artificial intelligence that held custodianship over the ancient and secretive world of Amemoriam for millions of years, before eventually joining with what he saw as his "Creators" during the Dark Times. Before that, he was an AI in the service of the all-powerful leader of the Warriors of Revelation, Tyrómaironás.
The Adjunct served President Apollo and his family for almost two decades, before sacrificing himself during the Great Battle of Orbispira in 20 NE, in order to light the Great Beacon, rallying the galaxy to war against his former master.
Millions upon millions of years ago, the Adjunct was mysteriously created by the omnipotent warrior Tyrómaironás in order to act as a custodian to the new Oikoumene factory world known as Amemoriam. The Adjunct was created holding many vast, unimaginable powers deemed suitable for the protector of the power over universes that Amemoriam kept locked away. During his stewardship, he grew to respect and admire the entity known as Libraé, his master's beloved wife. During Amemoriam's construction, he informed Tyrómaironás of his wife's imminent arrival, however unfortunately for the AI, he didn't meet her.
The Adjunct continued to serve the Oikoumene, even after they mysteriously ascended. It is possible that he was not aware that his masters had gone anywhere at all, though he zealously defended Amemoriam from outsiders all the same. In the intervening years, a massive ship graveyard began to form around Amemoriam, due to the Adjunct activating his defences whenever a ship got too close to his prized world.
Advisor to the Remnant
The Adjunct would remain hidden for millions of years. However, this all changed when a small Delpha Coalition of Planets science fleet under the command of Dr.Kenders arrived in the Amemoriam system. Initially, the Adjunct wreaked havoc on Kender's ship, but ceased all hostilities once the Republic Remnant arrived in the system. Hailing the Remnant as his "creators" and "masters", the Adjunct permitted Willelmus Cretacea, Kenders and their team to land on Amemoriam.
The Adjunct preceded to show Cretacea the many factory universes that Amemoriam constructed and was surprised to see that Cretacea had no prior knowledge of Amemoriam's existence. Nevertheless, he continued to reveal his secrets to the new arrivals. However, when they returned the Adjunct discovered that the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and the Neraida Gigamatrix had both entered the system and were in the midst of a terrible battle. Seeing this as an unacceptable breach of Amemoriam, the Adjunct activated his defences, destroying all but one Neraida Cube.
When he regrouped with his "Creators", he learned that Apollo was a Neraida survivor on this Cube. As such, he was happy to lend a hand to his new allies and managed to translocate them to within the confines of the Cube. The Adjunct's help proved to be most useful in Cretacea's plan to free his son from the Neraida, even saving Apollo himself using a high intensity laser beam, that dissolved Apollo's mechanical implants. The Adjunct managed to translocate the team safely aboard the Remnant's new flagship, the Spirit of Freedom. While aboard, he accepted Apollo's offer of remaining with the Remnant and as such, he managed to seal Amemoriam away within an alternate dimension until the time when it is needed.
Companion of the Cretacea's
When the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus found and absorbed the Republic Remnant into it's imperialistic fold, the Adjunct knew all too well of the dangers his capture could mean for his new found allies. As such, he formed a hyperspacial cloaking field around him, rendering him invisible to all, unless of course he decided to reappear. When the Empire granted Apollo's family free travel back to Capricaerón, the Adjunct accompanied them and now takes up residence in Apollo's luxury apartment in Libertopolos. Following the death of Gianne Inviá he was relocated to the Rambo Capital where he re-united with both Laoi and Kara.
Several weeks later, the Adjunct was happy to see Apollo, whom he considered one of his original creators. The Adjunct later travelled with Apollo to Mou'Cyran, during which he was perplexed by the fact that his creators had no influence on it. Along with Gorf, he theorised that another precursor civilisation lived on the planet in the ancient past.
During the New Cyrandia Wars, the Adjunct first appeared during the crisis on the Sword of Peace, where he was instrumental in preventing the Cyrannian Syndicate from sabotaging the peace talks between the Galactic Empire of Cyrannus and the Confederacy of Free Planets, despite being initially distrusted by the resident Imperial Gaius Prentus. After the events on the Sword of Peace, the Adjunct translocated to the personal vessel of Apollo which was on its way to Mou'Cyran carrying Laoi Cretacea, Kara Inviá and Gorf. When he arrived, he interacted with Thaur Vicliquam, the Cogsangui shiplord disgraced after the Amphryssos Campaign.
The Adjunct was ultimately instrumental in converting Thaur to the side of reason, indirectly playing a key part in the ultimate rise of the Unified Order of Cognalorilos, a rebel Cognatus faction fighting against the Cognatus Empire.
During the closing stages of the Second Great Cyrannus War, the Adjunct travelled to Orbispira alongside Vanikaimar, Aoirtae Valaeris and Kara Inviá, where he hoped to bear witness to the lighting of the Great Beacon, a relic of the Oikoumene that could be used to rally the galaxy to war against the Empire. When he saw that the Beacon was inoperable, he sacrificed himself in order to light it—an act of self-sacrifice which proved instrumental in the Republic's victory during the battle.
The Adjunct had a simplified appearance, being made up of a rounded cube with blue flashing lights. His chassis was a sleek, reflective silver colour made up of a highly resilient unknown material. It was speculated by many scientists that the Adjunct's chassis was made up of solidified hypermatter, but these claims are still under study. It was believed that the physical Adjunct was only an avatar, and that the real Adjunct existed in ways beyond conventional science.
Personality and Traits
“I am a genius! Hehehehe!”
- - The Adjunct
The Adjunct was a highly eccentric artificial intelligence and was considered by many, including Koluap to be completely mad. This may have quite a bit to do with the Adjunct's isolation from the rest of the galaxy for millions upon millions of years, which left him quirky and unstable. Nevertheless, the Adjunct took his duties to Amemoriam and his "Creators" very seriously indeed and was quite willing to completely destroy entire fleets that breached protocol. The Adjunct was completely omniscient in regard to Amemoriam and in addition, had a great deal of knowledge about other Oikoumene artifacts scattered across the Cyrannus Galaxy.
