A synthoid is a fictional type of artificial lifeform. It has been used in many medias: G.I Joe, Transformers, and even Kim Possible.
But I first herd the term used in Batman Beyond (one of my favorite animated series). The word sort of stuck with me. Since there isn’t a clear definition of what make a synthoid…a synthoid; I’ve decided to use the term in Cybertale. More specifically to set Gaster apart from the rest of the machines in the Cyberground. So lets begin. ^^
Many years ago, when monsters still lived on the surface; humans were working on soul powered technology. More specifically, humanoids.
Although they possessed souls, they were nothing more than a power source. Even if the soul were to be removed, a synthoid could still function on another power source. (just not as efficiently)
Now you might be wondering what sets them apart from other automatons? Nanomachines.
A synthoids spine can generate thousands apron thousands of nanomachines that carry soul energy throughout their bodies. Not only that, but they can manifest themselves outside the body to create thick layers of armor.
Depending on the situation, synthoids can adjust their appearance accordingly.
Even change their structural appearance entirely.
However, the true reason for why they were created remains a mystery. The human scientist that invented them died in the great war.
There have only been 4 synthoids ever created, Gaster included. But due to certain circumstances, the others died, leaving Gaster as the last living synthoid.
But after creating his sons, he no longer feels lonely
Of course they aren’t pure synthoids. But are more advanced that most robots in the Cyberground.
So in the end what I’m trying to get at is…
