History: Questor 656 was once just one of thousands of VDW's (Vulkin Droid Works) state of the art Mapperbot 600 series Explorer droids. Hundreds of these units were sent to explore and help settle Vanth during the Great Days of Exploration in the Galaxy. Questor 656, with help of the planet-wide net of communications satellites the Vulkins had placed, had roamed Vanth, mapping terrain, taking soil and vegetation samples, and observing and cataloging the native wildlife.
During his initial mission, Questor made the logical error of examining the nesting habits of the Vanthian Minelayer Bird too closely and was badly damaged in the resulting explosion. His shattered chassis fell into a nearby ravine and lay, unknown and undisturbed, for over 1000 years
Then, one day, his logic sequencer and optics flared back to life. Questor found himself in a dark burrow, being rebuilt and modified by a clan of helpful Hoblings. Many of his memory cells were still damaged beyond repair, and he was unsure what his function or mission might be. He spent many months thereafter guarding the burrow and generally doing whatever mundane tasks the Hoblings set for him.
However, during that time, his logic processor slowly but surely began piecing the parts of his old data cells back together. Finally it became clear to him what his mission was! He quickly found a way to remove his restraining bolt and escaped the Hoblings and floated off into the wilds. Raising his antenna, he quickly found that none of the his fellow mapperbots were reporting in, nor was the satellite network responding. He was on his own.
Description: Questor is a small robodroid about ½ a meter in height, floating on a pair of antigrav pods at an altitude of about 4 feet. He has a rugged appearance from the “repairs” of his former Hobling masters, and has three ventral manipulator arms, one attached with a very wicked looking machete, and has been retrofitted with an internal 9mm slug thrower.
Personality: Questor is a friendly robodroid, though he finds organics illogical and confusing at times. He enjoys the company of Vulkins, however, and will often partner with one. He is very detail focused and diligent, to the point of still broadcasting his findings from his explorations, just in case the satellite grid comes back to life one day.
