- 2-4 songs that are probably on their iPod
He has an audio jack to plug into his audio receptors -
Catgroove by Patrov Stelar
Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve (He’s memorised the violin part).
PARANOIA by 180(DDR) - (He likes anything heavily electronic or rhythmic)
Servants of the Mountain - Final Fantasy X
- the one place they sometimes end up falling asleep — where they’re not supposed to
Parker will always power down into a hunk of heavy, immovable metal near charging equipment, but he has a habit of sitting on essential items like credit cards and clothing so that there’s a bigger incentive to recharge him ASAP.
- the game they’d destroy everyone else at
He’s fairly rubbish but patient with most competitive games. While he’ll remember most combos and gameplay mechanics, it can take him a little while to put it into practice (he’s not the most coordinated with controls and actions corresponding onscreen).
Anything strictly memory-related, however…
- the emoticon they’d use most often
- what they act like when they haven’t had enough sleep
When his power’s low, Parker will usually go quiet and switch off his eyes to conserve power. (The visible ‘eyes’ are just for show, he actually has different visual sensors) He will be nervous or short tempered, depending on the situation, as he doesn’t want to lose power in an inconvenient place where it’ll take a truck to transfer his depowered frame. He’s mostly reasonable during this time, but a low-power Parker is a cranky Parker.
- their preferred hot beverage on really cold nights. or mornings. or whenever.
Parker used to be interested in coffee, since his Mum (creator) drank it all the time. He’s seen the effects of caffeine addiction since, and decided he was fine with the fact that he has no mouth.
- how they like to comfort/care for themselves when they’re in a slump
Though he does enjoy being solitary, Parker will actively seek out someone to hang with. He will shadow them (unless they’re busy or don’t want the company - in which case he’ll search for someone else) for most of the day. He finds comfort in having someone nearby, even if they don’t talk, and most of his friends understand this.
For really bad days, though, he either talks with Aiden (his mentor) or Nick (his mechanic).
- what they wanted to be when they grew up
- their favorite kind of weather
Dry, windy days with sun. The traction is better on buildings, and and he cuts through wind resistance easily because he’s made of a steel alloy. The wind makes his jacket flap around.
- thoughts on their singing voice (decent? terrible? soprano? alto?)
As natural as his voice sounds, he doesn’t like singing all that much. He can’t exercise his vocal chords like humans can, and if he tries to hit a pitch outside his set vocal range, it sounds very synthesized. He very much prefers to play his violin.
- how/what they like to draw or doodle
He enjoys drawing shapes and patterns. They’re little images that seem to appear at the back of his subconscious, and he finds drawing them a little calming. While he understands space and form quite well, he is horrible at drawing anything organic.
