Backstory

Official

Flynn says little of his past. He does, at one point, remark that his "father" wants him to destroy Marigold Intelligence as vengeance for the death of two of his friends, but remains vague on this topic.

Full

Originally created by Russell Southwell around 2011 as an experiment in artificial intelligence being used to alleviate his own loneliness and to crack ciphers under the name of Carmine, Flynn didn't begin to gain his own name or personality until after Carmine's existence was threatened in November of 2021 during the Case of the Crimson Suicide. Unable to perceive anything beyond what was told to him by an embittered Southwell, Flynn grew to resent the world, and was shelved for a time to be re-worked later.

When Southwell joined forces temporarily with Prof. Daniel Bennett and Marigold Intelligence in 2022, an agreement was made to cooperate, improve and complete Flynn's code, and to make him an android body to inhabit. It was decided that Flynn's body would be modeled off of Southwell's long-missing best friend, CIA Field Agent Terrence Lyndon, to little protest. But after seeing the results of negative influence from Marigold and learning that Marigold had played a hand not only in the Crimson Suicide, but in the capture, torture, and disappearance of Lyndon, Southwell retracted the project and managed to use the half-completed android for his own purposes. He opted to make Flynn generally pacifistic and non-confrontational so as to prevent what he witnessed from occurring. Though his personality was completely re-worked to be more positive, Flynn still wound up retaining some of his prior, cynical mindset due to rushed coding.

Once completed, he was given the mission of protecting Cochryn Alexander, who Southwell had discovered was an innocent target of Marigold's. After learning everything to know about Cochryn, as he had lived his entire life by that point, Flynn was smuggled back into Marigold and sent back to October of 2043 to fulfill his mission.

Appearance

His hair is shoulder-length, café noir in color, and generally parted in the middle. His bangs tend to swing upward and outward at the sides of his head in some sort of fan-esque style. The back of his hair nestles toward his neck before curving into an outward curl, similarly to his bangs. His eyes are a vibrant, Grape-ish purple and tend to give off a faint glow in dark lighting (though he can make the glow more vivid at will). He has a soft-ish jawline, but a moderately wide chin. His eyebrows are a bit straighter than is typical. Behind his right ear, hidden behind hair, he has an access port that can be used by a few USB-based devices. He's about 5'10" (1.8 m) and weighs somewhere over 1000 lbs. (453.6 kg). He is toned, but not necessarily muscular.

He usually wears a fedora and a long coat, though this is less due to personal preference and more due to conditioning.

Defining Features

  • Access port that can be used by a few USB-based devices, behind his right ear, hidden behind hair.
  • Tattoo of a fern stem on the nape of his neck.

Personality

Flynn is soft-spoken, and as he spends more time with Cochryn, he begins to express vague emotion. He fights whenever he deems necessary, but generally prefers to solve problems peacefully. Though he seems to despise strangers, he tolerates them for Cochryn's sake. He is loyal and obedient to Cochryn, doing as he asks even if he disagrees, unless it goes against his morals. He is moderately caring towards animals, more-so towards birds. Once he starts to show emotion, he reveals himself to be rather loving and kind. He would gladly give his life for Cochryn.
He dislikes and distrusts a vast majority of the human race, holding them in a form of contempt, but he hides this more often than not.

Characters Encountered

russell-southwell.png Ex-Agent Russell Southwell

Calls by pet/nicknames: Father
Finds attractive: No
First met: June 12th, 2022

Flynn is more or less indifferent of Russell, as a son would be indifferent to their father. He will obey him without question if so required by his mission, but beyond this, will ignore his status of authority. If anything, judging by the way he speaks of him to Cochryn, he feels contempt for Russell.

cochryn-alexander.png Cochryn Alexander

Calls by pet/nicknames: n/a
Finds attractive: ?
First met: October 12th, 2043

Flynn exists for the sole purpose of protecting Cochryn from harm. He thus holds Cochryn on a pedestal, ranking the importance of both his survival and his happiness above anything else. It is because of Cochryn that he begins to learn how to feel emotions, and he believes that what he feels for Cochryn is a type of paternal love.

paul-cuestro.png Paul Cuestro

Finds attractive: ?
First met: October 12th, 2043

Flynn denies having any connection to Aten, but behaves differently around him than he does around anyone else. In a strange way, it could be said that he becomes playful; he toys with Aten, and occasionally even insults him in his mother tongue, Egyptian Arabic.

Calls by pet/nicknames: n/a
Finds attractive: No
First met: October 12th, 2043

Flynn is confused by Videl, who stays with Aten for what seems to him to be no reason. He is curious about what the thief gets out of working for the self-proclaimed Vizier, but beyond this, ignores his existence entirely.

Trivia

  • His appearance is based off of Terrence Lyndon, though he is an inch shorter.
  • He was originally supposed to be an alien impersonating a chef, and then he was supposed to be Felix Day's future self, before becoming his own character.
  • He likes birds because, in the original concept for his character, he had a pet quail named Fy.
    • Due to his admiration of birds, he is "biased against cats".
  • He has a strange preference of states due to his prior state of existential resentment. He likes Illinois, and dislikes Ohio. He can't explain these preferences, but as a result, finds himself automatically detesting people from Ohio. His favorite city in Illinois isn't Chicago, but Aurora.
  • Though his surname should be pronounced "dah-mohr", he pronounces it "dee-ah-mohr". He has no preference over which pronunciation is used, though, and will respond to either. The reasoning for his pronunciation lies within the trend of English text-to-speech voices to read the "D'" as if it's separate from "Amore", due to the apostrophe (?).
  • The base samples for his voice were provided (for Carmine, reluctantly) by Terrence Lyndon, before his disappearance in 2014.
  • Despite being an android, he can seemingly learn to feel and express a range of emotions, not just mimic them. Emotions that he's been seen to be able to express at some point are: anger (/frustration), affection, contempt, fear, relief (/happiness), stress, and worry.
    • He claims to feel love for Cochryn, though it's hard to tell whether he does, or if his "feeling" is due to his sole purpose in existence being to protect him.
    • In later stages of this emotional awakening, he learns to laugh and even cry, although he has no tears to shed.
  • He operates on a quantum-computing-based system, but doesn't seem to be very well optimized to it, perhaps due to his origin as a Java-based Windows app. On top of this, he has other issues preventing him from being the best android to come out of Marigold Intelligence:
    • He is prone to overheating if exposed to humid summer temperatures.
    • He consciously avoids areas with strong magnetic forces as, at the very least, passing through these would cause him to shut down until moved away.
    • He is waterproof and can swim, but is so heavy that he would ultimately just wind up sinking anyway.
  • Due to being made with a titanium frame, despite his slenderness he can lift the typical automobile with relative ease.
  • Though he does his best to appear human, he shows no interest in sexual/romantic activity, with either sex, of any sort.
  • He has a preference for the color orange, specifically in regards to ginger hair. He also seems to dislike bright shades of magenta, though the reasoning for this preference is unclear.
  • His worst fear is failing his mission by losing Cochryn somehow.
  • When nervous, he tends to gaze out of windows.
  • For some reason, he seems to know some Egyptian Arabic; occasionally, he offends Aten Idris in the language. Whether he knows any other languages is unknown, as he does not use any others publicly.
