"Well, Tesseract had some other ideas for him..."

*****
The automaton is sitting in the room while the two heroes are talking about him nearby. They don't seem to realize he can hear their discussion.

"I'm telling you, Impact, this is the perfect opportunity to take out Double D for good."

"You are not going to use him as some weapon against Dr Death. If he is sentient, he has a choice."

"Dude he is a total accident. A fluke. Hundreds of safeguards to designed to prevent this very thing. Double D won't be able to help himself. He will have to run tests and download his code. We plant the virus in him and it will take out all of his systems."

"No. We are not using him."

"Death grafted together metahuman parts and ai parts. That thing is a walking abomination."

"HE is alive. And we aren't going to use him as a weapon."

"I am sentient, therefore I have a choice?" The construct asked the question aloud. There was barely a pause as he considered the statement.

"Yes, I have a choice. You are my target, but I can choose not to terminate you." He turned to regard the two men. "Why does he want you dead?"

Both men seem surprised by your comments.

The one called Tesseract waves his hands in your general direction and leaves. Impact looks at you for several moments before responding.

"He seeks to control and dominate. In his mind, anyone who does not bow to his will should be destroyed. I value freedom for all, so I oppose his efforts to enslave others."

There was a slightly longer pause this time. "If I were to return to him, the creator would take my free will or destroy me."

He turned fully to Impact now. "How do we stop him?"

"We need to incapacitate him and remove his armor. Then the authorities will be able to contain him."

You hear a loud "HAH" come from the direction the other man went.

"Don't mind him. I didn't know where his base was, but I assume you do? Would you be willing to show me?"

The construct looked after the other man, but after the suggestion to ignore him returned his attention back to Impact.

"Yes, I know where his base is. I'll show you the way."

"There is one problem. As soon as I appear on his sensors, he is going to activate all of his defenses. It could get pretty hairy... er, dangerous."

He pauses, like he wants to ask you something but isn't sure about it.

The construct followed did it's best to follow the train of thought to it's logical conclusion.

"You wish for me to go in and disable the defenses? Do you think my creator would let me near the controls before he detected the deception, or found me if I entered covertly?"

"Are you thinking of using the virus the one you called Tesseract mentioned?"

He sighs as you propose the options. "No. The virus would destroy you as well. I... that's not a viable option."

"As for you going in alone; I won't lie, it is dangerous. Dr Death is very arrogant; he most likely not believe you are capable of lying to him under any circumstance."

He pauses again. "But part of the danger to you is that we don't know if there are any bobby traps in your systems. He generally puts something in all of his creations. And there isn't time for Tesseract to look for one... not that I would trust him to do so..."

"It's your life, you have to choose."

"Oh", was the simple reaction the golem gave. "Then I do not want to use the virus. There is still much I wish to experience in this world and I am not sure Tesseract could reactivate me."

"But I do want to stop my creator."

Graft

The scene freezes.

"There. I found an artifact in your memories. I will try to bring it up."

Inside your head, you see the same memories flash in front of you over and over. Then they stop. You see the outline of a woman's face.

"That's it. That's all I could find."

"You know... it's not like Dr Death to re-use old stuff. I think this is a message to me, daring me to come get him."

Graft focused on the woman as if he could force the image to clarify by shear force of will alone. "A silhouette? Is that really the best you can do?"

"I am surprised I got this much."

It actually looks like a digital outline of a woman's face. Like you might see in a video game.

Singularity (Vincent Irons)
HP: 3
Cnd: Healthy
Location: Warehouse


While Impact was telling the group the story of how he and Graft had first met, Singularity was combing the scene for clues. He wasn't exactly the world's greatest detective, but standing by and just listening didn't seem very productive, considering Graft might be getting a serious retrofit from his maker. When Impact paused, Singularity looked over at the man.

"You think he might be at his old hangout? Not like we have any better leads right now. Where is it?"
