Olive (Doublenix’s PC)

‘Olive’ is a humanoid android built before the Fall. Olive’s body is sleek, compact, and seems to be designed for speed – this is evident from his innate quickness in nearly everything he does. His unusual nickname arose because he is painted an olive green and has a single red eye. When he was found and reactivated, it was remarked that his head looked like an olive and it kind of stuck.

Discovered inert by scavengers looting an Ancient ruin, Olive was sold to the Scholarium in the Free City and reactivated by the savants there. Olive’s memories of his existence before the Fall were inadvertently erased during reactivation, but his programming remained intact and he was able to adapt to his new conditions. Since then, he has remained with the Scholarium and served as a ‘technology adviser’. Olive’s dedicated service over the years has allowed him to gain the trust of Affiliation leaders, who have instructed him to join the Expedition.

Olive has become a favoured oddity around the Scholarium and has been given the nickname of ‘Bobby Olive’ by many of the younger savants. He appreciates the name and is happy to introduce himself as such. While ‘out and about’ on a short expedition, Olive found an old duster jacket (fitted with impact resistant plates). He was prompted to try it on by the others and took a liking to it.

Olive’s programming expressly forbids him from drawing blood. He has found an loophole in his program, however, that allows him to use blunt weapons in combat (as well as weapons that stun or paralyze).
