I protect my garden, and it protects me!

Bugg is one of the hunters in the game Crucible.

DescriptionEdit

Don’t let this robot’s adorable exterior fool you: Bugg can slow enemies, shield allies, and deploy plant turrets to needle the opposition, which makes him a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

BackgroundEdit

The Botani Mark One unit, designated “Bugg,” was created for use on Crucible. The higher-ups at the Scalzi-DokaniMo Corporation had it prototyped as a test to see if androids can take over the production and recovery of the lucrative Essence. To do this quickly and cheaply, they patched an experimental AI into a terraforming chassis: the result is a friendly, people-pleasing android who’s good with plants and programmatically devoted to eradicating the competition when it comes to Essence-hunting. After the destruction of Colony Zero, Bugg’s software and weaponry packages were upgraded.

Bugg has come to think of the planet as his garden, which he must tend and protect. There’s also the slight matter of his programming. Somehow, there’s a slight corruption of Bugg's AI. He intends to get to the bottom of it before anyone else finds out—and takes him away from his garden for decommissioning.

Personnel fileEdit

Bugg wants to be friends with everyone. Unfortunately, he also wants to destroy anyone who’s a threat to his "garden." Which is everyone. Makes things pretty awkward for the little guy.

I’ve seen a thousand Botani gardener bots in my career. They’re cute, friendly, harmless. But this one’s got upgrades.

It’s a tough world down there. Guess a gardener bot needs an extra-strong pesticide…and a directive to kill intruders on sight.
