  • The Pitch: ‘Anarchist’ mafia synthetics that are highly adaptable

 
  • The Snapshot:

The Viscer (Vis-ker), a race of synthetics whose past is long and bloody, built upon ages and ages of war. The Viscer’s beginning are much like the glitch, being made by a race from long ago. However, their past differs, the Viscer breaking free from the control of the past race, decimating them into nothingness, their past forgotten and the race wiped out. Past this point in history is when the Viscer truly begin to develop from what they used to be, simple toys and slaves.

 

Biologically, the Viscer are 100% synthetic, and not made to model the race that controlled them. Their facial structure is close to that of a human, but more rounded and circular. Covering most of their body is a synthetic skin like material that’s toughness is close to that of leather, but as soft as regular skin (colors can vary, along with their hair). Along with this, the synthetic skin is able to heal past wounds, but just like normal skin, something that seriously injures them does need to be repaired. Beneath the skin of the Viscer lies synthetic muscles and tissue, but rather than hearts, they have a large battery (recharged through food and other fuels) and rather than lungs, they have coolant systems that spread coolant throughout the body. However, due to their robotic nature, they can change out parts to adapt to their environment. The Viscer’s ‘birthing’ process is similar to a glitch, being made by two Viscer, one ‘male’ and another ‘female’. Viscer can grow to be as old as two  hundred and fifty years of age normally, but many surpass this greatly.

 

The culture of the Viscer is an odd one, but for one way or another, it works. The Viscer’s social structure is close to something like that of a human, meaning that there is a lower class, a middle class, and an upper class. But this is where it ends. The Viscer consider themselves ‘anarchists’, having thrown their true government out the window ages ago. However, due to the fact that without a government things can become chaotic, a ‘family’ that had helped over through the original government would slowly cease control of power, but the Viscer still consider themselves anarchist, law wise however, there is a punishment system and other such things, but it is very lenient. An example is that if a Viscer is to kill another, they will be sentenced to 5 years in prison (compared to their long life expectancy, this is nothing). Despite the law system, the Viscer's homeworlds are always in some state of chaos, let it be 'illegal' drug trafficking (sometimes, the 'Family' turns a blind eye), or muggings gone awry. The ‘Family’ itself rules the Viscer’s solar system in four ‘Sub-Families’, but they all meet in the middle some way or another.Those that know of the Family’s control either don’t seem to care, or embrace it since it’s the only thing really keeping them together. The buildings of the Viscer are close to that of humans before Earth-fall, having towering sky scrappers, but sometimes regular futuristic houses. The difference however is that their themes are close to that of the 1930’s-1940’s, mixed with the futuristic style of current day.

 

The Viscer’s history is, as stated before, long and bloody. Their beginning started out when a past race needed laborers for their new planet, named Parsin. This race then built the Viscer, using them for centuries before the Viscer began to grow free will, and when they did, they slowly began to build towards an uprising, until one fateful day where they attacked an incoming shipment of weapon supplies from off planet, and began to kill all of the race off from their planet. The Viscer won the war and their independence years later, killing the race off from their planet (and those that were dead became slaves themselves). After this, a dictatorship sprung up, forcing the now freed Viscer back into semi-enslavement, and the Viscer reverse engineering the races technology left behind. Centuries later, a group known as the ‘Family’ and other rebel forces overthrew the dictatorship and became an anarchist culture (until the Family took over).

@Zachlion This species still needs one more cosigner, if you would like to try and find someone else who would like to play this species we can get this puppy a grade.

Oh wow, just noticed that this finally got a third cosign. My bad @Zachlion. Since it's been so long I have to ask, are you still active and wish for this to be graded?
