Rex Invictus O.C

Post by Rex Invictus on Mon 8 Aug 2011 - 1:04

First, sorry, my English was not so good. I'm practicing!
I want to share with the forum my first OC, I've been developing in his spare time, the story is already in my head. As for the design, I'm no professional, but I did the best I could. I intend to develop the story over time, and post some new drawings.

The name of my girl's Giovanna d'Arco, I'm still thinking of a good name for the handler ...^^





The weapons it uses are the Giat FAMAS G2 rifle and pistol Walter PPK 9mm, PPK not a simple, but a limited edition commemorating 50 years of the model.



"Plated in a luxury wooden box with dimensions 20 x 14,5 x 5 cm. Made commemorative series of only 700 units in caliber 7,65 mm and 300 units in the Caliber 9mm"







I'll add more over time!

Nice mate.

Is that an argyle vest? I hope so, because argyle is awesome.

I like the PPK as well, it's a classic. My own OC uses one, though in the smaller 7.65mm chambering.

Looking forward to seeing more about her and her handler.

*Alfisti, yes, is a argyle vest, i hope to use various models, argyle is awesome!

*Professor Voodoo, yes.


the name of my cyborg (Giovanna d'Arco) was inspired by the French heroine Joan of Arc, the handler it is a history enthusiast, he somehow spotting her as a heroine.


I really like PPKs! I liked a few different models..

.

I need to use a unique model for my cyborg ^^.


one caught my attention.....The pistol of Eva Braun, Hitler's wife. Really unique!Very pretty!

Which raises the question: is she a cyborg of French descent?

Good question, it is not of French origin, the handler was inspired from an opera "Giovanna d'Arco" by Giuseppe Verdi. Moreover ... the handler after a disaster in his career ... moved away from society, and decided to enter a monastery, everything was going well .. but he had no vocation for the ascetic life, and the prior of the monastery advised him to leave and start his life again, and have won him an image of St. Joan of Arc ... to be continued.

This is a bit of a simplistic allusion, but maybe "Carlo Settnero"? Charles VII was Joan's patron - and he also cast her off when she'd served her purpose and was becoming a bit awkward, which might be parlayed into the subordinate nature of the cyborgs themselves.

Yes, the hair is black, green eyes, ethnicity Mediterranean, the vest is dark red, the shirt is dark gray, but the collar and the ends of the sleeves are white, and finally, the skirt is black. Leaving aside the issue of color, leaving aside the issue of color, it was called originally Erminia, lived quietly with his family, even by the unfortunate fate, the area where they lived was affected by an earthquake (Italy has been affected by earthquakes several times ...) his father died, property destroyed, the rest of the family (she, her brother and her mother) ended up in misery, misery takes over from Italy. His mother becomes romantically involved with an Arab immigrant, and get married, life remains very difficult, the stepfather provides the necessary for survival ... in addition to being very violent beating all one day end up killing his mother, and lived a very poor neighborhood, crime was concealed. It worsened after the death of her mother, she helped support the family, so his stepfather forced the brothers to steal, formed a gang with other young people from the neighborhood, all the booty went to the stepfather, one day ...
she and his gang attempt to steal the wallet of the handler, who had just returned to town after staying in a monastery, he chases the bad guys, and eventually get his wallet back, it still give a nice moral lesson, not has an effect on all ... Arminia gets confused with what he heard, and decides to run away with his brother, they go home to catch the little things they owned, but the stepfather back early and catches them, lock them in a room without food ... long after his brother dies of starvation because he was weaker. On the same day his stepfather trying to rape her (an old desire) opens the door to the room, she attacks him in a desperate measure, piercing eyes ... he took the fury throws her against the door, where a ladder was located (the room she was locked on the second floor) she fractured spine ... there was nobody to help, the only neighbors were relatives of his stepfather, then no one would call for help, but luckily someone passed on the street heard the confusion and called police, the stepfather flees terrified.

That's alot of background story you figured out.
Mediterranean roots, so she has a tanned skin, eh?


What's about the physics of her? I mean especially height and the supposed age.




Black hair, nice, welcome to the club mate.

Well, she is not tanned.
I referred to the Mediterranean to the green eyes and black hair pulled from his mother. His father was from northern Italy, which made it clearer. It would be 1.55 meters, with its 14 years.



^^ Black hair is nice.

That seems like a good feature to incorporate into all the new cyborgs, but it could also prove to be a liability. A sharp eyed Padania target might notice a girl in a restaurant who can use a fork in either her left & right hand.

Ambidextrous always looks stupid to me, it's abnormal, no normal human is left and right handed at the same time.
There are some who originally had been left handed and had to change to right, but however there is one hand stronger.

I don't think a former right handed person can be ambidextrous, even not with conditioning, that are skills much much deeper.

However, cool picture, looking forward to see or read more of Giovanna.

That said: I tend not to dig the ambi either (for the record Monty's right handed... unless artistic requirement dictates otherwise). Don't ask me why, but for me it just doesn't sit right. That's not saying "don't" of course, it's just personal taste.

Born with ambidexterity is very rare.....not impossible. However it can be learned.

Each side of the brain controls the opposite side of the body. Then I reflected on the subject...



I was thinking, in conditioning, the other side of the brain was stimulated, generating the ambidextrous, this combined with physical exercise.

However has a problem. The ambidextrous, in some cases, hesitates before choosing which hand to perform each task.....can be very dangerous in an operation...I want to explore this in my work...

That is what I was hoping to hear. I've got to admit I think one of the things that turns me off the whole ambidextrous thing is that it's often tacked on with no bearing on the character or story. If there's something interesting going to happen as a result of its being there: colour me interested.

I'm an 'Ambi' as some of us like to be called. As is my OC, Fernando.

One is usually born right handed, left handed or ambidextrous. Studies in the 1990's shown that pregnant mothers which have a stressful pregnancy and high estrogen levels gives birth to left handed males. Left handed females are another thing they have not figured out how that happens. And the jury is still out as to why Ambi's are born.

One can train themselves to be ambidextrous, but it is not everything they can do left handed as they can be right handed. In this, Fernando is teaching and training his girls to shoot left handed as well as right handed but everything else to do is right handed.

Left handed people tend to be more ambidextrous because the world around them force them to be right handed.

Proof in whether one can be born left or right handed: all large parrots like African Greys, Cockatoos, and Macaws are all left handed. Left handed because when eating or exploring, the right foot stays fixed to the branch they are on while the left foot grabs things and puts it to its mouth or to its eye to see it. Other species of animals tend to show either genetically induced left or right handedness. Genetically, because THEY ALL DO IT THAT WAY.

Alfisti - if you read any of my stories, you will see that Fernando will shoot either left or right though keeps his main gun on the right shoulder holster to draw it with his left hand. The secondary gun is on the left shoulder holster and is drawn with the right hand.

When shooting with the left side, it throws off his opponent for less then a second because they are expecting a right handed shooter to face them. As they take that few micro seconds to readjust their aim, Fernando is already pumping 2 rounds into them.

The reason is simple- 1) people will expect for shots fired to come at them from their left (the shooter's right) 2) people used to shooting right handed targets automatically know where the target points are at (heart, lungs, head, and what is being covered by the shooting arm). being left handed throws all this off and forces the shooter a second to recalculate target points. 3) then ducking behind an object (car door, trash dumpster, etc), they expect shots to be fired from its right side and aim for that spot. They do not expect for shots to be fired from its left side.

The way I always saw it, ambidexterity would be a fundamental skill programmed in from the factory - an off-hand seems to be nothing more than a liability. Humans must endure it because of how the good Lord made us, but there's no reason why you wouldn't want your pintsize combat commandos to be equally and universally adept at anything and not suddenly become ineffective because one hand is damaged or otherwise preoccupied with something. I'm cack-handed myself (Elfen's remark about high stress encouraging leftness is intriguing, as my mother had a difficult pregnancy) and, whether its smearing ink all up my arm when I write or having something as simple as a rope knot become a logistical nightmare, it's no fun - I can't see why the Agency would tolerate it if they wouldn't have to.

Rex's thought that ambidexterity encourages indecesiveness is an interesting spin that adds character, but in a more general sense I don't see how ambidexterity can be anything but a good thing, and I've always assumed that all cyborgs are ambidextrous as a default.

Ambidexterity does not encourages indecisiveness. In fact, with both sides working together and independently at the same time, one can think and act faster being an 'Ambi'. Indecisiveness comes from other factors, including faulty logic thinking and never learning complex math skills. Using alcohol and illegal recreational drugs only adds to the indecisiveness. One becomes indecisive when one cant think when one becomes confused as to what to do and logical thinking fails along with flight/fight reflexes, forcing one to freeze up. Ambidexterity does not do that.

Just out of my own curiosity more than anything: do you ever find yourself favoring one hand over the other anyway?

Just following on from Robert's comment, if the SWA does just make the girls ambidexterous as a matter of course, would they still favor, say the right hand had they been right handed before conversion, despite being just as capable with both?



@Robert Frazer wrote:The way I always saw it, ambidexterity would be a fundamental skill programmed in from the factory - an off-hand seems to be nothing more than a liability. Humans must endure it because of how the good Lord made us, but there's no reason why you wouldn't want your pintsize combat commandos to be equally and universally adept at anything and not suddenly become ineffective because one hand is damaged or otherwise preoccupied with something. I'm cack-handed myself (Elfen's remark about high stress encouraging leftness is intriguing, as my mother had a difficult pregnancy) and, whether its smearing ink all up my arm when I write or having something as simple as a rope knot become a logistical nightmare, it's no fun - I can't see why the Agency would tolerate it if they wouldn't have to.
I guess my thoughts on this fall into two categories... because I see where you're coming from. The first is that I'd question whether handedness is something that the conditioning can control. I mean, to me handedness falls into the same category (and again this is just personal opinion) as personality: it's not exactly a voluntary thing and it tends to be pretty engrained. Sure you can change a personality and you can learn to be ambidextrous (the teacher I meantioned earlier was originally right handed), but it's not the same as, say, learning gun parts by wrote. So while it may be altered in the course of the conversion process by accident, I don't see it as something the SWA can choose to do. My own take from the canon (and others are of course free to disagree) is tht the SWA's ability with the brain seem to be mostly limited to playing with knowledge: "This is my handler, I must protect him", "This is a Berretta, the safety is here"... however actual motor skills and muscle control seem to still need to be learned... the girls afterall, still need to practice with firearms.

The other I guess is just personal preference: the girls have enough advantages physically as it is... so if there's an opportunity there to complicate their lives a bit more then I'll take it. Razz

Well, the issue of ambidextrous has became complex!
Really, I was not expecting that! ^^
The ambidextrous question is accessory in my O.C. story.
I still intend treating the most important aspects in the story, but now I don't have time for this.
I will return later to this.

Only in handwriting. And that is because I had a religiously right handed teacher in Kindergarten and first grade who would slap the pencil out my left had if I picked up the pencil with it. I can and at times do write with my left hand though the written script pattern is different from left and right.

Other than that, what ever is closer to side side, is the side chosen. Like picking up my backpack, if my left side is close it to it, it will be picked up with the left hand. Unlike most right handed people who would turn to pick up a pack back with their right hand or rarer pick it up with the left and switch it to the right side.

Taking Petra's case (and all the other girls). Conditioning does not take away the girl's personality. If she was busy in her pre-cyborg life in a very specific task (like exercising and dancing in Elizabetta's case), she will continue to do so in her cyborg life (like Petra does now). If the cyborg was right handed, she will continue to be right handed. If she was left handed, she will continue to be left handed. If she was ambidextrous, she will continue to be ambidextrous. Like wise so will remain her pattern of thinking as does her personality.

Now if a handler wants his girl to shoot with her left as well as her right, he has to train her to do so. My OC Fernando does that with his cyborg Rachel and at this point she can shoot from both sides but prefers the right.

Handiness is something conditioning can not control like their personality and thinking process is something that comes from the girls originally. Conditioning only programs their conditioned responses to "This is your handler, you love him, you will protect him with your life and you will do what he tells you to do, even die for him. Severe Consequences will result if you dont." Also memories are erased to get rid of their past, but not emotional connections to it. Like Claes and books. She likes them but does not understand why she does other than she accepts she does. Henrietta always wants attention from Jose, chances are she was either a spoiled brat or in competition with several other siblings in the family for parental attention. Who knows, maybe she was an older sister to a baby who was just born, which would take away parental attention from her and put it on the baby.

Like I said before, if a handler wants his cyborg to shoot from both sides, then he will have to train his cyborg to do so.

The issue of being ambidextrous is not complex. The issues of being indecisiveness being connected to being ambidextrous is for it does not exist in normal means. Being indecisive is from an outside influence affecting the logical process of decision. It can also exist because of internal pressures or influences (drug, alcohol, brain damage, past experiences and pleasure/fear-connected memories) effecting the logical process of decision. It is not because they are ambidextrous.

It would be the end of the human race if ever ambidextrous cave person out there fell into danger and froze to pick up their defense club in order to take action but instead are trying to decide which hand to pick up the club with! "Pick the club up with the left hand! No wait- the right! No wait- the left! No- the right!"... "RAWR!" and the ambidextrous cave person is now dead and been eaten by what ever attacked the cave. That never happens with an ambidextrous person! Which hand is closest to the object it the hand that picks up the object and not force themselves to turn to the opposite side to pick up the object with the favored right hand. interesting fact from my early college years and studies of anthropology, Showed that Neaderthals were exclusively right handed. But the theories behind it varies from scientist to scientist. But other animals also shows either left or right sided exclusive behaviors, like I said about large parrots, they all show to be left handed.

Nor drawing out an ambidextrous character is difficult. Simply put, treat that character as one would any other character, but when an object or action is on that character's left side, the character will use its left hand for it and not turn for the right hand to take action. There are also other minor issues (thinking a bit faster and taking action a bit faster than most because they can respond with either left, right or both sides and not force themselves to side side like others would) but that's it. Emotionally and physically, they are the same as everyone else.

Wait... you expected us to stay on topic? Welcome to the famous Cyborg Central tangent: we're good at those. Wink

@Elfen: cheers for the info... and agreed on all counts. In terms of what the conditioning process can change, I'm willing to accept that it can do things like change which hand someone favours or their personality. However, my own personal view is that it can't do it on purpose: freak accidents and side effects due to the slightly different physiologies inherent of the human condition... combined with the fact that the SWA is working right on the ragged edge of medical science: that I can dig.

@Rex Invictus wrote:Born with ambidexterity is very rare.....not impossible. However it can be learned.

Each side of the brain controls the opposite side of the body. Then I reflected on the subject...
True Ambidexterity is not learned. You teach to do something with your weaker hand, 1) that side will always be weaker, and 2) you only become ambidextrous in that one thing. True ambidexterity is when both sides are equal in strength, usage and ability. It is something you are born with and not learned because your brain was pre-wired to have that ability since the womb.

@Rex Invictus wrote:I was thinking, in conditioning, the other side of the brain was stimulated, generating the ambidextrous, this combined with physical exercise.

However has a problem. The ambidextrous, in some cases, hesitates before choosing which hand to perform each task.....can be very dangerous in an operation...I want to explore this in my work...
I am beginning to tire of this. You dare ridicule ambidextrous people like myself? You calling us stupid ignoramus idiots? I'm calling you out on this: one more word about how ambidextrous people are indecisive, and 1) I'm shutting down this thread and 2) putting your account and IP information in the Ban Watch List. Consider yourself on probation!

Needing to consciously choose, hesitate and become indecisive which hand to use in an action never happens with us Ambies. So how dare you insinuate that! Read My Words- IT NEVER HAPPENS! Doing so is calling us stupid ignoramus idiotic incompetents. And that sir is an insult to me and everyone like me! Our choosing as to which hand to use it automatic it is for you to almost ways that one hand you favor!

Live and learn. Ambidextrous is something you are born with and not something you learn. You can train yourself to use both hands but it will not be true ambidexterity. You will only be limited to those things you train yourself to do and you weaker side will still be weak compared to the favored side. A person with true ambidextrous abilities can out think a person who favors one side. I am not saying that we are better than the rest of the planet, I am saying that our abilities a bit more enhanced and the majority dont. Nothing better about that, just different.

This is my final word on the subject.

I came to clarify some details of my project, but first I will clarify some points ...
I consider the history of ambidextrous eliminated in order to eliminate any hostility.
Unfortunately this week I have not had time to think about anything, much less draw.


(disregard any conflict with the previous information, this is the valid version)

ORIGINAL NAME: Giulia Frezollini
GIVEN NAME: Giovanna d'Arco
BIRTHPLACE: L'Aquila, Italy
AGE: 13 HANDLER: Carlo Corleone
(HANDLER) AGE: 25
(HANDLER) BITHPLACE: Nova Trento, Brazil (Brazil suffered a massive immigration of Italians between 1880 and 1930, extimate that currently 25 million living descendants of Italians in the country. The largest population of Italians outside Italy.)
HEIGHT: 155cm
HOBBIES: fence(Carlo was national champion in fencing in the past. He decided to practice with Giovanna to stimulate your muscles, give flexibility and dexterity.), Reading books about philosophy (Carlo instructs her to read works of philosophers, for personal development), history and collecting antiques with her handler (she enjoys the collection of ancient weapons of Carlo).
