Gavil combat SADUS by VulnePro Gavil combat SADUS by VulnePro
Another Theos sendai (of many to come), this one a SADUS model manufactured by Gavil. SADUS (Self aware defense systems) are the most violent and, typically, unstable of sendai. They were manufactured to be indentured body guards or for law enforcement/military applications.

It became clear to law enforcement that these sendai were far too unpredictable and unstable for dependable policer work so a solution was desperately needed. The creation, by Oshen, of the reliably stable taedus model sendai was the solution law enforcement sought. This development relegated SADUS units to more questionable uses by gambling and criminal organizations. Though SADUS sales took a hit at first once this transition to a new client base occurred companies simply diverted their attention to the new clientele. Often when there is violent sendai crime a SADUS is involved so, ironically Taedus became SADUS units mortal enemies to a large degree.

From looking at this example its clear blood has been spilled and this SADUS is on the fringes of the law. This one is sporting a rather FOIL-like torso configuration which isn't surprising due to Gavil's direct cooperation with Jeindel in making FOILs on Polemos. Sendai are quite a bit smaller than their FOIL brethren, a typical sendai is roughly 4 to 5 feet high. This guy (or gal) is likely one of the rare 6 foot tall, or so sendai.

Expect more examples of the sendai population of TKP soon. Because Whispers of the Deep is set (mostly) on Indus sendai are a huge component.

While this is a robot (Well, Techno-Organic Creation, but Bah), a important question must be asked...
Is is a Guy or a Girl?
And is it Tap-able?

The head design reminds me slightly of a shark's nose.
Was this intentional?

...either way, I think it really works :B

Oddly enough, on this one, it wasn't but I can see it now that you point that out. I have done one that does have a head very much inspired by a shark nose but haven't posted it... yet. Thanks for the comments, reminded me I need to finish that other one and post it as well :)

i like the non standard, but functional clothing. (it reminds me of Archer from Fate/stay night)

is it a fifth gen? the boots/shin/leg guards (and their hex pattern) are a tip off.

colors? (i was kinda thinking red w/ yellow accents).
