  • Ingrid: Maybe when they were kids XD

  • Alyss: Phoebe wouldn't want Vaness to feel bad either, though, or dress up as something she really, really would rather not wear. Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty have pretty dresses, so she'd be perfectly happy going as one of them. ^_^ (And the puppy dog eyes may end up on Roi to go as Flynn. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 01:04:57 PM
  • Alyss: She does - complete with a little bottom lip wibble. ^^;
    October 17, 2014, 12:59:37 PM
  • Ingrid: I bet Phoebe has the best puppy eyes
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:58 AM
  • Ingrid: Oh no ;_; Now Vaness feels bad
    October 17, 2014, 10:40:49 AM
  • Alyss: Phoebe would probably go as Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty since they are both "hidden" princesses like her. (But only because Vaness probably won't go as Elsa to her Anna. XD)
    October 17, 2014, 10:35:10 AM
  • Brenna: Phia will dress as a butterfly, because its the last thing anyone will see coming out of the world's biggest tomboy.
    October 14, 2014, 10:54:38 PM
  • Brenna: Doc Lamya would go as the Ghost of Breakfasts Yet To Come, with a bacon and eggs print shroud.

  • Ru: That is so awesome.  :D
    October 14, 2014, 06:06:48 PM
  • Pixie: Kivan would go as Liberace XD
    October 14, 2014, 05:50:22 AM
  • Ru: Kit I think might be a total geek and dress up as some historical figure her dad taught her about.  And then be a little confused that no one knows who she is.
    October 13, 2014, 06:52:34 PM
  • Ru: Hmm, I think Seren might go as a zombie, just to confuse the hell out of people.  She'd play it totally straight, and people would STILL find her attractive.
    October 13, 2014, 06:50:57 PM
  • Ingrid: Vaness goes as Flame Princess because of all the Elsa jokes
    October 13, 2014, 01:51:42 PM
  • Pixie: Pwyll would perversely go as his sister XD

  • Brenna: Triso probably did. Seraita wasn't strong enough to swim, so she mostly waded.
    October 01, 2014, 01:59:40 PM
  • Ru: HEY so just a little question - for those of you with Lost Kids, do your kids know how to swim?

    September 15, 2014, 01:46:04 PM
  • Alyss: And I've been trying to find a good flower for Phoebe. I've come up with a few (white rose, lily of the valley, magnolia, etc), but haven't settled on one yet.

Iron Angels
« on: April 11, 2013, 02:52:39 PM »
Gonna give the questions forum a little love!  <3

So the Iron Angels are the guardians of their respective planets, and they have some authority there as well.  What exactly is their role in the grand scheme of things?  In other words, what are their roles in society and in Sin's hierarchy?

They were all chosen because they can do something extraordinary that caught Sin's eye, so is that applied in their day to day duties?  Like, if someone was great at not being seen and spy-like, would they be publicly be something like Sin's head of covert ops?  Or is it more that Sin likes to have lots of talents in her back pocket in case she needs to get a particular Thing done?

QUESTIONS FORUM LOVES QUESTIONS!

So first and foremost - the Iron Angels are there because for the past 2000 years of human society, the people are used to having a flight of Senshi there to protect them.  The Senshi would be a source of comfort to the people, as well as to serves as paragons of virtue and sources of pride.  Since Sin er, fired the Revolutionary Senshi, she naturally needed to put in another team so that the people don't completely freak out - and she has installed the Iron Angels as the true guardians of Vega, not just some snot-nosed kids installed by a Queen in a distant solar system. 

So the chief duty of the Iron Angel is to be excellent fodder for propaganda.  Sin wants people to admire and be in awe of their Senshi, and so the Iron Angels will be in the public eye and need to conduct themselves reasonably well with Gentry.  Sin wants people with extraordinary skills because she thinks only extraordinary people deserve her best cyborg bodies and artificial Crystals.  She would want those skills to be useful to her - she trusts her Angels much more than humans who do those jobs, and would rather turn to them to get important jobs done.

In your example, of the person who is a good spy - that is entirely up to the player if they want their Angel to be the head of a spy operation, or to be more in the dirty work of spying.  The Angel could actually probably swing doing both if they want to. 

Did that cover most of it?

OKAY, so this is primarily an Iron Angel question, but I'd be curious about what the answer for general Coppelia would be as well - are they capable of doing any of your standard 'human' things?  In other words, are they able to eat or drink, should the situation call for it?  Can/do they mimic breathing?  Are they (hurr hurr) "fully functional"?  Do they blink?

Coppelia can't get away with it unless they were specifically designed for it - like the Grigori are designed to have breathing patterns and a processing system for food and drink, but the Cheribum and Seraphim and Elohim models don't unless it is a modification for that Coppelia in particular.

However, the Iron Angels can do all of the things that you've described!  This is because the Iron Angels, again as a kind of marketing tool, are the 'full-package'.  They can do everything humans do, but are completely better and don't die as easily!  Like Sin and her bodyguards, the Iron Angels seem to be human at appearance.

The thing that would definitely stop a Coppelia or an Iron Angel from thinking they are 'human' though is a certain emptiness in their sensory system.  They can feel, smell, hear, taste, and see, but there is a dullness to that experience which is more psychological than physical.  Like, were they to taste a piece of chocolate, they'd be like "huh, it's composed of 60% cacao" rather than enjoying the subtle feelings related to senses, like the wiring in the brain between sensation and feelings have been removed.   This is especially true for the sensation of touch, and Iron Angels and Coppelia may feel cold and 'hollow' after interaction with a warm, lively thing (like a puppy), best described as a hyperawareness of their synthetic boy vs. a living one.
