Here’s his finished concept! Decided to allow him to retain a semblance of a face for easier emoting. Despite this he’s basically got zero pre-existing biological matter left in him. All technorganic now!
Some context. I decided to play around with the idea of Reza (aka my big damn action hero cyborg) literally going Deus Ex Machina and turning into a transhuman godlike entity who can bend reality to his will via his generation and mastery of nanomachines called Seeds.
People tend to call him The Gardener.
Reza likely turns into something of an interstellar and dimension hopping traveler. Folks either see him as a savior whose gifts/invitation of technorganic ascendancy and his growing technorganic utopian culture called the Garden are a boon to the universe, or a terrifying plaguebearer who will wipe out intergalactic stability with his growing army of devout followers. All depends on who you talk to really.
At the very least, this new development opens up the door to exploring the narrative consequences of apotheosis, the responsibilities of unimaginable power, and how people handle that sort of power along with how their morals and outlook might change. To say nothing of how other people might view that and react to it.
TL:DR I turned my big damn action cyborg hero into an OP god-being and I’m not even sorry.
One last reblog for the early night train, and that’s it for this self promo.
I’d love some asks about him if you’re so inclined, it will help me develop him more! Feel free to drop them in this main inbox or on the wandersong one, I aint picky!
