Chronicles of the Lord of Power/COTLOP
The Lord of Power uses minions as means as a medium to work on complex equipment, build stuff and do maintenance. They are used as hand tools and various types of drones. Generally Minions are created by using energy to create them as needed they complete their tasks if there is no danger they wonder off to play, slack off or “help” others following the minion’s primary and secondary directives until they run out of energy. They also can be locked away in objects to be summoned when needed. The Lord of Power has a single permanent energy minion he keeps on himself like a cell phone/tablet. Dubbed “Mini” it’s much smaller than most drone minions as it’s about the size of a pool ball. Mini is used as a flashlight, translator, scanner, simplistic multi tool, computer and media player. Being around the Lord of Power a lot has made the minion have some extra quirks mainly it’s personally is more cute, silly and energetic than the rest.
The appearance of a minion is typically round with a single large cat like eye, sizes tend to be 2 inches to 2 feet in diameter depending on if being used as a hand tool or not and tend to look like a blue fireball with a cat’s eye, mechanical designs are used rarely. Mechanical designs can have glowing parts but for the most part it’s a shifting raised panel covering that allows the mechanical design to function.
Basic functions of any type of minion is floating/flying, invisibility/stealth, scanning, multi-function beam modes including telekinesis, cutting/mending, organic manipulation/healing. To help with their duties minions are also empathic and have limited telepathy powers with a few security enhancements to ensure they cannot be easily taken control of and fear dose not burn out their AI. It’s a general rule the more power/energy put into them the more they can do. The less energy they are given the slower and more ghostly they appear if energy based minion. Minions are all connected together via the Lord of Power if he is not around acting as a main hub they are connected based on proximity to each other, IE the more that are close to each other the proximity range of the connection grows stronger and faster.
No matter the location minions are connected to the Lord of Power’s sub conscious, somewhere in his sub conscious they can access a huge archive of information. Minions are like co processors that are more powerful than the computer they are in, by himself the Lord of Power cannot do much it’s all fuzzy incompetent work but via minions he can build nearly anything if he has enough energy and materials to work with. Minions share a simple operating system that even the Lord of Power can use even if he is heavily damage and cannot give them access to the information archive to speed up his own connection and comprehension with them.
Minions are semi automatous everything they do is based off their AI, specifically the primary and secondary directives and randomly generated “quirks” such as when in idle mode they chase each other firing harmless energy beams or doing randomly cute, silly or stupid things. As such minions are regarded as silly light hearted creatures or spirits wherever he roams. Primary directives dictate that innocent sentient life takes precedent over their given duty or job. They have a fondness for children and will always want to play with them when they are in-between missions. Second to third primary directives deal with mission/assignment prioritization and the health and wellbeing of sentient life and life in general to a lesser degree this means if someone needs to be healed or something needs to be repaired there is a high chance minions will “help” if the their assignments are less important. Fourth primary directive deals with area mapping and the location of possible ambient energy locations for emergency usage. Secondary directives handle environmental issues like cleaning/repairing or purifying the habitat sentient life is in, it tries to balance the needs of sentient life versus life.
The Lord of Power made it so that minions do not speak, mainly from nightmares of dozens to thousands of them constantly bantering back and forth to each other so to communicate when need be they have semi translucent holographic signs, talk clouds or talk box’s/windows, they are random much like the minions own personality. They all have the minion operating system version number on the bottom of the screen. Minions refer to themselves as their summon number or as “minion” if they do not have the time or space to write out their full number/name. They refer to the Lord of Power as master and will try and cuddle with him and get his attention by doing cute and silly things if their assignment is not high priority.
A single talk box/window is used in the foreground for prevalent conversion, generally when talking to sentient life, in the background behind the main window they talk to each other, share pictures and other silliness, it can become messy but can create humorous situations. Information windows are displayed when more complex information needs to be shared or during scanning of objects or people depending on the situation if there is no real evil intent or tension around them and they are not busy with work or if someone is asking them a lot of questions they will create the talk windows and stuff to communicate.
Heres some pictures I had made, this shows off their rescue capabilities and their possible quirks via dress up. zippydsmlee.deviantart.com/art…
This is cute overkill but I thought it would be fun to have it made.zippydsmlee.deviantart.com/art…
