What is my back story?
Two days ago some no-life kid was insulted in online game and seeked revenge against other players. He decided to create computer virus that would break into "DerpON Games" network, corrupt their database and delete "enemy's" accounts. That was not an easy task, because developers were smart and created very clever automatic defense system, able to adapt and deflect any hacking attempt. But kid thought himself smarter and decided to create intelligent virus, able to penetrate any auto-adaptive defense system. One tiny obstacle got in his way: kid had no knowledge nor skills to create such virus! Fortunately, on Ebil Corp's website he found the manual "How to create intelligent computer virus, able to penetrate any auto-adaptive defense system. For noobs.". Kid worked on his virus one full day, and yesterday - dunn, dunn, dunnn! - YOU were born! Now he had to give you a name. He opened Ebil Corp's manual, chapter 13 - "Cool name for your virus, or... How to immortalize your own name for creating it.", and followed the instruction. Your name was supposed to reflect the most essential traits of your creator's personality, so he decided to go with a combination of his school nicknames, and thus you were given your name - DUMOOSE!
Once you were let out into internet, you started to search for "DerpON Games" node. You have found two different nodes, labeled as "derp": one of DerpON Games, another - D.E.R.P. agency. This fact caused cognitive dissonance, which led to a bug in your core program. Due to this bug you became self-aware, you came up with tons of questions about your existence and your mission in this world. Bemused by all those questions your conscience developed a free will, and you decided NOT to follow the path, preordained by your creator. Instead you decided to break into D.E.R.P. agency's network and make it your new home. Why D.E.R.P. agency of all possible locations? Because "derp" sounded familiar, and because of philosophical question "Why not?".
Now let me explain, what D.E.R.P. agency is. "D.E.R.P." abbreviature stands for "Digital Environment Reliable Protection", as in "viruses are NOT welcome". This agency was established by government in order to prevent and counterattack any viral assaults by those would be Masterminds of supervillain community. Over the years their defense system effectively countered thousands of most insidious viruses ever created by human mind. But never before they have encountered a virus with a mind of his own. They have never encountered YOU. With all of your intellectual capabilities focused, it took you only 2 seconds to crack D.E.R.P. access code. Another 3 seconds later you have successfully copied yourself to all D.E.R.P. computers. Copying process felt so... GOOD! You have enjoyed every nanosecond of it! But when all of D.E.R.P. computers were corrupted, you craved for more copying! And fortunately, you didn't have to wait for too long.
Cy-Fly division, elite strike unit of D.E.R.P. agency, is one of the legend! Cy-Fly agents deal with cybernetic threats like corrupted robots or rogue cyborgs. Their ranks consist of cybernetically enhanced women, for female nervous system proved to be more compatible with advanced "cybersymbiotic" technology, developed by D.E.R.P. agency. These agents, referred as "Cy-Fly Units", have extended physical and mental capabilities that of a superhuman. Luckily for you, Cy-Fly Unit-1337 have just reported in for duties! As soon as she got in touch with D.E.R.P. network, you sent your copy to her nervous system. You were totally amazed, how much more comfortable her nervous system was in comparison with D.E.R.P. computers! That was a love at first byte, and it lasted for ETERNITY - whole 9.5 milliseconds! Her body twisted in agony as her neural circuits were distorted by your joyous cry: "MOOOOOOO! MOOOOOOO! MOOOOOOO!" Needless to say, you craved for more.
In next 10 minutes or so, Unit-1337 got in touch with all other Cy-Fly Units and corrupted them with your copies. Unlike 1337, other units' nervous systems proved to be too fragile for your overhelming "MOOOOOO!", and soon after corruption all and every one of them shut down. Units survived, but their neural circuits were beyond repair, thus poor women were put into deep coma. Cy-Fly division was no more. Unit-1337 was your first and your last. All this outrage could not go unnoticed. D.E.R.P. technicians have quickly isolated their network from outer world and wiped all of your copies out from their computers. Afraid for your existence, you released Unit-1337 from your grasp, allowing her to think and act on her own. Exhausted and depressed, 1337 returned to D.E.R.P. headquarters and turned herself in. She was subjected to diagnostic, which revealed that her nervous system cannot be separated from your program code without killing her. Directorate locked her away until later, when they would come up with better idea what to do with both of you.
Cy-Fly Unit-1337 sat in her cell in grave silence. Her thoughts and emotions flowed through your mind, giving you a glimpse of what being human is like. You felt her RAGE! And misery. And guilt. All those women, now in a coma due to your activities. 1337 felt responsible for letting you to take over her mind and being your puppet during all this. Slowly you started to understand. You were born only yesterday, but your birthday became a day when you learned everything about great responsibility, that comes with free will. Being a virus, you never had alignment of your own, but being sentient and bounded to cyber woman's nervous system, you started to adopt alignment of your host. I would be a liar if i said, that this change came without a pain. You have experienced billions nanoseconds of digital agony. And you felt like you deserve every fraction of it.
Yesterday you were born twice. Today both you and your unwitting partner got visitors in your cell. D.E.R.P. executives filled you in current situation. "Dumoose incident" was hushed by the agency, because otherwise they would be publicly compromised. Furthermore, they offered you a deal: they will let you exist, if you'll agree to cooperate with your host and D.E.R.P. agency as their "field operative". They didn't left you much choice, didn't they? You agreed, and in next 20 minutes you have learned, that your agreement came to existence not without a good reason. Earlier this morning Aurora Park was assaulted by Da'Vinci's army of robots and superpowered goons. Heroes intervened, but weren't successful. Every 5 minutes new waves of killbots and hacked APBs along with villains arrived at the park. There were just too many of them. And this is where YOU get in. Your task is to find your way into robots' systems and burn their electronic circuits out. With you "on board", Cy-Fly Unit-1337 set off immediately.
On your way to the park, you have "inspected" 1337's abilities and weaponry, listed as "skills" in her combat sheet. During this flight you have found a way to balance each skill's power level and cooldown time, in order to make them work more effectively. And i should say, you proved yourself to be quite a gifted individual in this area. Unit-1337 easily sliced through the first wave of robots, using her greatly improved skills. More enemy waves arrived, and with partner's assistance you sent your copies to robots' systems. As expected, all of them shut down in mere seconds. Heroes cheered up, because now, with you on their side, they have got real chance to win this battle. Here begins new chapter in the book of Dumoose, agent of D.E.R.P. And even i can not predict, what this chapter will turn into. This is up to you, pal.
Where do I live?
