The Icarus Twins

"All limits are self-imposed."

Dr. Daedalus is rather the stubborn hermit. Rarely does he venture beyond the confines of his Engine for supplies or testing. Those tasks fall upon the shoulders of a series of autonomous androids called the Icarii.

Designed to be virtually indistinguishable from human beings, the Icarii are meant to serve Daedalus without question.

Two of these models have gone above and beyond the original whims of their creator to such a degree as to be given actual distinction among their kin.

They are known as the Icarus Twins, differentiated as Icarus "Atticus" and Icarus "Bertram". Though not twins on the surface, Atticus and Bertram are identical once their layers of bio-engineered skin and flesh are removed.

"We are made of all those who have built and broken us."

Atticus is the voice of one or two dead men, compiled into the databanks of a thousand others. He is the more eccentric of the two brothers and takes his name from a book that his father used to read to him. He is often the 'voice' of the duo, speaking and acting in strange ways to supplement both of their unique brain patterns.

He is a petty thief and finds joy in challenging the perspectives of everyone around him. The common people of any given area are a delight to break down on a wavelength suitable to what their reality is, or should be according to Atticus. Social and psychological norms mean nothing to him because such things are as dust in the grand scheme of mechanical eternity.

He is the better marksman of the two brothers.

  • Height: 6' 0"
  • Maximum Grip Strength: 60k - 150k PSI
  • Preferred Weapons: Mauser C96 pistol, improvised melee weapons

Bertram is the silence of a deep, dark night. His deadly aim is supplemented by customized sound nullifiers in his joints, making him a near-perfect assassin. While Atticus prefers a louder, more bombastic approach, it is Bertram who takes his brother's distractions as suitable chances to act.

He is the conscious reminder to Atticus of their father's whims and the stoic moral foundation of the duo's myriad antics. Bertram often finds himself cleaning up after his dubious brother, though he doesn't seem to mind in the slightest. While he is the anchor to the pair's personality core, he is also a remorseless killer. He is a cold, efficient murderer without peer and does not waste any opportunity to utilize his talents.

He is the invisible muscle of the group.
