Tyr, the old Guard
Age, chronologically: 2500+
Age, apparent: 37-40
Race: Aesir, cybernetic human.
Blood Type: Synthetic RH, hyper-oxygenate carrier
Implants: Broad spectrum toxin/pathogen resistance
Neuro-muscular (adaptive muscle memory) assists
Neural<->Machine cyberspace link (one-way diagnostic)
Mnemonic datastack link (refurbished)
Neural feedback dampeners (adrenal/endocrine)
Interchangeable modular manipulator (right hand, Tyr’s design)
This profile is formed from the collection of information over an incredibly large period of time, gleaned from many different sources.
Idunn’s notes: Tyr’s genestock is mostly pure human, but of excellent quality. It is possible that some geneering was done, but only to “tweak the base model” of humanity. It is clear that ODIN didn’t want to stray far from the original template.
Tyr’s origins are clouded in mystery. Records are sparse and incomplete. Tyr’s memory itself is unreliable due to the venerability of his implants and his file’s classified status. Tyr is the oldest of the remaining Aesir and some say one of the first, if not The First. He is a fine warrior and master strategist responsible for uncountable victories against the Machines. In addition he is an Armor and Weapon smith of unequalled skill. Only Tyr understands the Sentient Weapon technology, despite efforts to pass this skill on to others and numerous recordings – there is something special about his understanding, something a machine cannot replicate. Still, we persevere in this matter, hoping to recreate and manufacture them on a large scale.
Idunn’s notes: Tyr has grown tired of the constant war – his psychological profile is a damning indictment of early Aesir cybernetics. He has seen and done more than any other Aesir and has paid a price. Clearly, in Tyr we see the upper limit of our current cybernetics and where we need to excel.
Please note: All Aesir are trained in a wide variety of weaponry; both melee and ranged. From swords, axes, hammers and glaives, through mass driving linear accelerators, laser projectors, fusion/plasma hybrid energy weapons.
Tyr uses a specially designed multi-purpose spear. The spear’s tip can be fitted with a wide range of payloads: shaped charges, high-explosives, EMP charges, etc. most of which have been developed for anti-machinery purposes. The spear can also be fired like a rifle, shooting phased plasma packets at high velocity, i.e: a “burning spear” as the kenning goes. It is unclear as to whether the spear, which is nameless, is sentient or not. It is more likely that Tyr’s cautionary opinion of the sentient weapons keeps him from using them himself, preferring a more reliable and controllable “iron” weapon in his hands.
Tyr’s roles on the battlefield are legion. Tyr cut his teeth and implants on the darkest era of the War, as humanity struggled to claw a sanctuary from the ice. As one of the earliest Aesir he often had to take any and all missions thrown at him. Defeat was not an option. Today’s Midgard is founded on the victories of the early Aesir.
