IC SECTION
Name: Epsilon
Canon: Red vs. Blue
Canon point: Partway through Season 10, Episode 12: Out of Mind
Appearance: In robot form, he's average height in highly advanced military grade combat armor, cobalt in color. He doesn't really have a face under the armor. When projected, he's similar to the robot form, only transparent and usually a shade of blue.(There have been cases where he was white or even green when remembering another fragment.) (Note: Since he was in this body in the game he's being pulled from, I figured it would be safe to assume he could keep the form.)
Age: Canon's a little shaky on an exact age for the fragments. As far as I can tell probably 4-5 years is a fair estimate.
Gender: Male
Personality: Epsilon is at a glance, a rather egotistical jerk. Not as much as the AI that he is the memories of or the human that AI was based on originally, but still a jerk nonetheless. He's got a foul mouth, a kind of bad attitude, and a tendency to yell a lot and lose his temper. He's also probably one of the worst soldiers imaginable. He can't aim, he's lazy, and pretty bad overall with strategy. Epsilon is also very quick to come up with excuses for his own mistakes and bad aim. (Things like "The sun reflected off the rock.")

However, those are just on the surface. He's not nearly as bad as he might look at a glance. Even if he has a temper, he can be patient when needed, and he actually does seem to have some small amount of fondness for Caboose at times, as can be seen at the end of Season 8 with him saying goodbye before entering the capture unit. He's also oddly philosophical about the fact that he jumped into a unit that was failing and was going to kill him when. ("And I mean hell... if you have to live the rest of your life in a memory... you might as well make it a good one.")

Another issue Epsilon has, but it's not exactly odd considering who he hangs out out with? He's really not very good at dealing with women. Well, normal women, anyway. That may be due to the fact that his canon on screen experience to date with women consists of mainly Tex, who is more manly than most of the men in the series. Considering Epsilon actually called the person that's supposed to be his girlfriend a stupid bitch on her initially arriving in the memory in the capture unit...

As a fragment of the Alpha, he has an odd sort of devotion to trying to finish dealing with the problem that the Director and the Alpha could never quite manage to find the solution to. The problem of the person that came along for the ride when Alpha was made. Allison. And if he couldn't he was supposed to pass it on to the next iteration of the cycle. Though in the end, he shows a lot more maturity than might be expected, finally finding the way to truly break the cycle. He's more mature in that than either the Director or the AI he was made from. He accepted in the end that letting go was the real solution.

History: (Going to be recycling this from his old app, mixed with some discussion of the last game around the canon)

Canon part one:
The history of Epsilon begins with Project Freelancer. He is the product of a process of fragmentation being applied to the only AI the project was granted that was based on the Director, Leonard Church. This AI was known as the Alpha. They had literally taken the Alpha, stressed him to the breaking point through scenario after scenario of stress and failure, then had a Covenant alien known as an engineer remove the pieces and repair the Alpha again. The pieces were the AI fragments, which were given to the agents, implanted in an attempt to help humanity in the war.

Each fragment was a piece of the Alpha. Delta was his logic. Gamma, his deceit. Omega, his rage. And Epsilon... Epsilon was the memories shed by the Alpha in an attempt to stay sane. He was assigned to partner Agent Washington. Some of the pairing were successful. Unfortunately, Epsilon was one of the project's failures. He was unstable to the point of self-terminating in his host's head after implantation. Once Epsilon terminated, he was removed from Washington and put into storage at a command facility.. But he wasn't truly gone.

Eventually, his former host, Washington, retrieved him in order to use him as evidence of the Director's crimes, putting him in the hands of a group of simulation soldiers. Specifically, a particularly stupid one named Caboose. Instead of the AI being handed over to the authorities as intended, Caboose kept Epsilon, telling him stories and working to find him a new body. The first replacement body Caboose found him was a monitor. A piece of ancient alien technology. Once in it, Epsilon could communicate and took advantage of the opportunity to get himself a better body and try to find a way to deal with the problem of Texas(The Director's dead girlfriend, brought back as an AI from his memories of her.)

From there, he convinced Caboose to go with him to a place where he found a better replacement body, as well as one so that he could get Texas out of his head. Texas took advantage of this and Epsilon's memories, convincing him to follow her to a place called Sidewinder, in order to use him as bait for a trap for the people that were following them... The Meta and Agent Washington, Epsilon's old host. Ones that she assumed were the most likely to be able to tell her where the Director was. In the end, the trap brought them, resulting in the Meta being killed after trapping Texas inside an AI capture unit. Epsilon, chose to try to enter the unit to find her, just to have it close behind him before he could locate her, trapping them both in a world of memories of a canyon of simulation troopers where he could finally try to find the solution to the loop brought on by Texas, hopefully before the unit failed.

Epsilon continued on, trying to find her and the solution to the problem that the Alpha and even the Director couldn't. And he finally was starting to see it... The real solution to his Tex problem. He needed to let her go. To forget her(Not in the literal sense.) He basically decided it was time to move on. To stop obsessing over what he'd never get. He'd finally accepted it, just in time for what he'd assumed to be the end of the world inside the storage unit. Instead, he found himself being pulled out of the unit by a rescue mission when he was finally at peace with himself...

Revenance part one

Well, it was a good thing in some ways that Epsilon was used to dealing with odd, seeing as he found himself in the world of dreams. It was a bit of an eye opener for him. He got a chance to deal with things like magic, weird little animals, people from strange new worlds, and people from his own world that shouldn't even be alive anymore. It was really a chance to expand his horizons. He had a few dream eater friends(That I'm assuming from the fact that other transplant from the game doesn't have his, Epsilon is going to have to adjust to losing them.) as well as some folks from other worlds that he was fond of talking to. He even started learning knife fighting from York as his aim was so terrible. He'd spent time adapting to the going ons of that place, just to end up waking up at home one day.

Canon history part two(Canon bump)

Well, we pick up at the point he left off, with a rescue party pulling him out of the storage unit when he'd finally found himself at peace. Bringing him back into the fight and the chance to finish things. The ones responsible? The reds, blues, Wash, and a familiar face from times long past. A woman he'd thought dead. Not Tex though, like he'd first thought when they mentioned the reason they were there was female, but someone else. Her name? Agent Carolina, long thought to be dead.

However, in the time he's been in the unit, Epsilon finds out that he's been kind of... replaced. With Washington. And he's not too pleased about the idea, not that they get time to dwell on it long with Carolina wanting to get them out of there and the firefight going on. As he finds out, he was rescued because of Carolina, and the fact that he was a copy of the Director's memories. She wanted him to help her find the place the Director was hiding to finish things. To get revenge.

From there, he gets shoved into Tucker's storage unit, to his dismay, to be transported along with the others. It's irritating to him, and he and the others are basically being dragged along by Carolina, with no information. She just expected them to take orders. They didn't need information. Which ended up leading to them deciding to move Epsilon to the Mongoose Carolina was riding to try to spy on her and get further information.

After reaching a dead end in the trail, Carolina decided that she needed to check out a fortress on her own, taking Epsilon along for the ride inadvertently. The fortress turned out to be the base that Tex had asked York to help her break into. Where York had died. She wanted to see it. See the logs. She wanted to know why he helped her. Why Tex. Epsilon ended up giving himself away at the mention of Tex's name. When Carolina yelled at him, telling him she doesn't trust them because the Freelancers, in spite of everything, lied, stole, and ripped each other apart... He went quiet.

Just to dig through his memories. To remember records he'd gotten from a Freelancer outpost. Ones that consisted of York's journal entries recorded by Delta... Ones that showed who he'd really wanted to find all along. He was looking for Carolina. Letting her see the truth at last. How much York cared. That he was looking for her all along. That he wished she'd learned to let go... Like he had to in the end. Because Epsilon knew what it was like to spend one's life chasing ghosts. And he wanted her to not make the same mistake.

Oddly, that was exactly what Carolina needed to see to make her realize some things. To lighten up, and that she wasn't the only one the Director hurt. Which she did almost immediately after, teasing him for being embarrassed about being ridden by her. And that would be the point Epsilon would be reentering the world of dreams from.

Revenance part two:

It was seemingly going to be a repeat of his first stay there. And then new worlds started opening. Including a bit of nightmare fodder from home. The Mother of invention. The place where the horrible memories came from back home. It wasn't easy to see, and when he did go there, he ended up losing himself and needing a rescue. But he had been warned. And he was too stubborn to listen.

He continued just moving along and dealing with things, though he wasn't exactly as quick to throw himself into things with his tendency to be a poor shot, just to find himself one day in a new place and alone, but for the memories. This place.

Aspirations: In canon, it's been trying to deal with the Director and get closure lately, but on a more personal level, I think his biggest aspiration outside that is to find a place for himself. Something that isn't being a copy or a replacement.
Fears: He has a lot of fears, but I think one of his biggest would be losing himself and becoming like the Director. Or possibly the pain of the memories that he carries around and actually losing it like the Alpha did.
Inventory: A sniper rifle. A magnum. Some ammo. His knife York taught him to fight with.

Magic: Telekinesis
Reason: I think it'd be fun to play with for him and a lot less obvious then Technokinesis. Besides, at one point in canon, he gets a body with it. And making things levitate was kickass in his eyes.

RP samples: Okay, I'm going to have to go a little older for thread samples of this version of Epsilon. If they aren't recent enough, I could give you some samples of a slightly different canonpoint version in a different game I have him in from that game's test drive.
Sample 1 Sample 2 Sample 3 (Same character, minus memories and a later canon point, this is more to give you a recent sample of me with the character.)

Paragraph sample(This way you get a fresh sample of this version.)

Epsilon looks around the area in wary confusion. This isn't where he was in the world of dreams... At the same time, it's not where he was last time he woke up at home. And Carolina isn't here. He's got his stuff... No dream eaters, but he knows deep down that they'll be fine where they are. This is feeling a lot like the first time he arrived in the world of dreams, and he doesn't like it at all. "This is bullshit. At least send me back where I belong. Come on."

It's some kind of rooftop garden. Odd. But he can deal with that. at least he's not a pony. It's not got terrible memories attached. It's probably best for him to just get a feel for this place's quirks, see if anyone he knows is here, and deal with things. At least he's still got weapons enough to look intimidating.

Notes: He is an AI, and innately does have some abilities at hacking and the like, but I'm not sure if the differences in technology would make that kind of thing a bit useless, especially without technokinesis. He also used to be able to enter computer systems and the like.

Also, in certain points in canon, it has been shown that he does almost have the ability to take on other remembered aspects of the Alpha.(For instance, the logical aspect Delta. He remembers the others, and in later canon than I pulled him from, he's shown as inwardly communicating with them and the like.) It's not a visible thing in the robot, I just like putting it out there.

[IC Information]
Character Name:  Epsilon
Series:  Red vs. Blue
Gender:  Male
Age:  Exacts are unknown
Species:  AI (Having him in a robot body to make him mobile, though canon point, he doesn't really have a real body, just a chip)

Appearance: In robot form, he's average height in highly advanced military grade combat armor, cobalt in color.  He doesn't really have a face under the armor.  When projected, he's similar to the robot form, only transparent and usually a shade of blue.(There have been cases where he was white or even green when remembering another fragment.)

He accepted in the end that letting go was the real solution.

Abilities:  Epsilon is an AI, able to inhabit a robot body or be implanted in a compatible host.  He's also capable of projecting himself and some hacking.  He's also got memories of military training and a shitty talent at executing and horrible aim.

Items:   He has his armored body, a sniper rifle, and a magnum.  Not that he can aim worth a damn.  (I'm basically taking him as what he would have kept on him in the memories, but I don't want him humanized as he was sort of in the unit, as was discussed on Plurk.)

History:

The history of Epsilon begins with Project Freelancer.  He is the product of a process of fragmentation being applied to the only AI the project was granted that was based on the Director, Leonard Church.  This AI was known as the Alpha.  They had literally taken the Alpha, stressed him to the breaking point through scenario after scenario of stress and failure, then had a Covenant alien known as an engineer remove the pieces and repair the Alpha again.  The pieces were the AI fragments, which were given to the agents, implanted in an attempt to help humanity in the war.

Canon Bump app:

Appearance: In robot form, he's average height in highly advanced military grade combat armor, cobalt in color.  He doesn't really have a face under the armor.  When projected, he's similar to the robot form, only transparent and a shade of white now, though there's a hint of blue to it in smaller projections.(There have been cases where he was other colors when remembering another fragment.)

Personality: 
Epsilon really hasn't changed all that much, other than the realizations he's gotten by watching Carolina's obsessions with the Director and digging through the information he's got in him, between memories and files he's taken from computer systems along the way...  He's been watching someone else make the mistake he did of chasing ghosts.

But at the same time.  He knows they finally have the chance to end this.  And he'll help Carolina do whatever it takes to reach that end.

...

Okay.  I have a few major questions.  Really.  As much as I might like having the human body?  Where did it come from?  And how the hell did I get here?

Also, who's idea was it to put me in bed with some random woman?  I don't appreciate it.  Really.  Fucking jackasses.  I just got closure there.  I don't need another one to complicate things.

And really, what is with the lack of real technology here?

Abilities: Epsilon is an AI fragment belonging to project Freelancer. As of the point I'm taking him from, he's technically trapped in a unit that is basically a virtual world made of his own memories.

As for abilities... Besides being an AI with extremely limited transferring abilities(In canon, it appears he lacks the abilities to freely jump hosts of some of the others.

I guess if you want capabilities though, he knows how to use a sniper rifle... Badly. He can't hit a rock from relatively close, and he thought at first that zoom function was activated by yelling zoom at the rifle.

Sample Entry: Dear Mun, Dear Mun 2, Musebox voicetest with a friend(Friend isn't in Mayfield, but we decided to loosely use it to give a setting, and while I'm aware you don't want intro posts, it's also got a 60 comment thread, half by me.)
