Dr. Cain grinned as he broke through yet another
layer, he knew there was something down there, the scanner had picked up a large
hollow area with a collection of large hard objects, perhaps he finally found
the fossils he was looking for.
Cain looked over his shoulder and shouted,
"Alright team! This could be it! I have a gut feeling!"
"Then take a Malox and go to sleep."
"Shut up Bill."
Sonya walked up next to Cain and placed a bomb in
the dig site. Cain ran over to the camp and waited for the explosion, "Be
CAREFUL! You could damage some of the fossils inside!"
"Shut up you old fart! I know what I'm doing;
anyway that was the last layer. Look!"
Cain did so, and what he saw shocked ten years of
his already near over life. Inside there were computers, wires and papers.
"Well I'll be damned"
"You already are you old perv!"
"Shut up. Look! It's a lab of some
sorts!" Now the assistants get to have shortened lives, the elderly
professor leapt down into the hole. Everyone either screamed or stared as the
Prof. Seemed to leap to his doom.
"Whoa, be careful old man! You still have a
few years left on ya' wouldn't want ya' wasting 'em all on some stupid
"Didn't anyone ever teach you any respect?
Come on! You're Archaeologists! You should treat the old gently and with
kindness! Now come down here! If my legs can take it yours should be able
Dr. Cain searched around and once he saw a picture
he knew what they had found.
"Well, HEY GUYS! THIS IS DR. RIGHT'S
The next morning after much work the elderly
scientist found something even more amazing, a capsule. Seeing that all the
lights were green he opted to open it. He was glad he did. What was inside
appeared to be human, only with deep blue armor on, but he knew better, it was a
robot. The very same one Right's notes referred to! It opened its eyes and
looked at the elderly man, "W-who are you? Where am I?" After looking
himself over he looked back up and added, "WHAT am I!?!"
"Heheh inquisitive aren't ya'? I am Dr.
Theodore Cain," (Don't bug me if the name is wrong, it's my best guess)
"Hello... I am..." The robot thought for
a second, "Yakasa Rock Right"
"Interesting... Yes-um come with me Yakasa,"
"Oka-lee-dee but can I sleep a little longer
first?" Yakasa collapsed onto the floor.
"Oh honestly!" Cain proceeded to drag
the fainted robot back to camp; shortly he threw his back out and called for
"Rock? Rock? Are you alright?"
His eyes opened slowly, before him was a beautiful
girl, with messy blonde hair and a large bow in her hair.
"Y-Yeah I'm fine Ro-R-Roll-oll-ll..."
A scientist came over and looked him over, then
shook his head mournfully, his eyes turned to another, one in red armor, one
wearing a scarf...
"Hey! Rocky! Wake up sleepy head!" A
woman with a strange uniform knocks on Yakasa's head.
"H-hey! Ow! That hurts!"
"Heh sorry, the doc wants ya', scuze
me." The woman got up and wandered off.
An old man entered the room, "Good morning
"A-uh good morning, um am I going to have to
deal with many of these people?"
"Oh no, no, no! They're just assistants,
they'll be onto the next scientist by next Tuesday!"
"What day is today?"
The next day Dr. Cain and 'Rockman X' entered an
argument, Dr. Cain ended it with an enthusiastic, 'Astounding' and proceeded to
work on HIS first 'Reploid' enthusiastically awaiting X's reaction.
"I don't understand; why do you need another
"It's simple really X; humans, as a species,
are lazy creatures, whenever there is work to be done we look for the least time
consuming, least active manner of doing so! So you see, a clever businessman,
such as myself, takes every opportunity to take advantage of this laziness. Such
as robots to do the work for us! Even better if they can think on there own,
then they don't need as much supervision or maintenance, simply put; we need
them to work for us!"
"Okay..." X moaned slightly and plopped
himself onto the couch while Cain left, "It's just not right..."
A while later Cain had succeeded in developing his
own reploid industry and mass production of reploids quickly spread. Yakasa was
lost in the speed of reploid development, and soon faded into the background.
The azure reploid lived with Doctor Cain, he never did anything there; he simply
Then it happened. A group of three construction
reploids attacked humans; all the humans at the construction site were killed,
with those trying to defend them. Some officers managed to dispatch with them by
using electro-magnetic pulses to stun and deactivate them. The reploids were
studied in a lab somewhere but the findings were not announced for a long time.
While urgently awaiting the news, X questioned the
intelligence of mass-producing Reploids. Cain assured him that it was just a
glitch in their programming that didn't comfort X at all.
Cain was proven wrong. More 'Maverick outbreaks'
occurred. More and more of the Irregulars escaped to wreak havoc again. The
problem got so bad that a team of reploids was formed to stop them; this team
was titled "The 'Irregular Hunters', a simple answer to the problem,
wouldn't you say so X?"
X shook his head "I'm not too sure. What if
these hunters went maverick themselves?"
Cain smiled, "Then the leader shall take care
of them. I have designed a new reploid, one who cannot go maverick; X, meet
A tall bald reploid entered the room, his armor
was a deep green and he wore tall brown-leather boots. He had a single red jewel
in his forehead, apparently his weapon, though not his primary one, on his belt
was a new style of weapon; a Bean Saber. The hunter also had a warm smile. X
liked Sigma; even though he was a warrior, X could tell he was kind and a good
Sigma extended a hand, "Good to meet you
X took Sigma's hand in a friendly shake,
"Nice to meet you too."
Sigma was indeed a good leader; none of the
hunters feared a thing when Sigma was with them. In order to increase the
effectiveness of the hunters Sigma requested the construction of eight elite
hunters; Chill Penguin, Storm Eagle, Flame Mammoth, Spark Mandrill, Armored
Armadillo, Boomer Kuwanger, Launch Octopus and Sting Chameleon.
One day a red maverick appeared and slaughtered
people in a factory. Sigma dispatched a group of hunters there, Sigma's calm
blue eyes burned with anger and he clenched his fists hard when he heard what
happened to his men. He went to the field himself.
"Commander Sigma? Should we go-"
"No. I don't want anymore of my men being
killed. I'll go in myself." Sigma marched into the factory, his men staring
"That irregular's done for. The commander can
Sigma looked at the tall figure before him, it
licked its hand, lapping up blood. Even though the creature was tall it did not
come close to matching his height. The maverick turned and lunged at Sigma. The
hunter dodged to the side easily, the Maverick swung a foot at Sigma but again,
no contact. Sigma punched the Maverick and threw him into the ceiling.
It grabbed onto two bars next its head and pulled
itself free and it appeared to be... smiling? He ripped a bar out of the ceiling
and dropped onto the floor. Sigma drew his beam saber. The antagonists lunged at
each other, blade meeting bar. The battle continued up onto the rafters. Sigma
had the upper hand, his attacks sent the maverick back and it wouldn't be long
until he lowered his guard.
Then the battle turned. The maverick knocked
Sigma's saber out of his hand, Sigma fell over to recover from the blow.
Discarding his weapon the irregular walked up and kicked Sigma. Continuous
blows, Sigma's skin was torn off over his right eye and the entire left side of
his head, he was even missing his left arm. The maverick threw Sigma and kicked
him in the gut Sigma screamed in pain as the maverick drew his fist back for the
finishing blow. Sigma awaited the end, but it never came he looked up to see the
maverick screaming in pain, a W in the blue jewel on the maverick's helmet.
Sigma took the opportunity to punch the maverick, shattering the jewel and
knocking it out.
"Look there he is now-huh!?"
Sigma walked out of the factory, clutching the
space where his left arm had been, "Urh-I-ugh-want that maverick taken
in-to be examined..."
X spent his time in the Tokyo Irregular Hunter
base after meeting Sigma. He'd discovered that many of the hunters were very
good people. Despite his hatred of violence he enjoyed talking with several of
A new hunter had recently joined and everyone
called him Zero. His rank quickly soared. Zero came to be second in command of
the 17th unit.
X sat in the cafeteria all on his lonesome,
watching Zero break up a fight. X examined his drink, Zero disserved the
position very much; he was cool and calm and never failed to raise morale. In
addition when someone needed it he would become friendly and cheer them up. Zero
was definitely a good leader. If only I could be like-
X's thoughts were interrupted when he realized
Silia had seated herself on the other end of the table. X quickly straightened
up and turned to her.
Silia was one of the most beautiful hunters in the
base, and everyone knew it except her. She was also very skilled, this she knew.
In battle she wore her blonde hair in a ponytail, to keep it out of the way, but
know it hung loose and at least in X's mind, it made her even more beautiful.
Her armor was blue, silver, pink and red, her weaponry was a set of beam sabers
and a duel bladed staff. As she smiled X's face turned a very deep shade of red.
"Hi X, do you mind if I sit here?"
X blinked and stumbled out, "N-no."
"Cool, I see you were watching Zero. He is
amazing, wish I knew more 'bout him though."
X fought to keep from staring and stuttered,
Silia giggled, "Wonder what he thinks of
X looked down, "I-I don't know..."
This time Silia out right laughed, slamming her
drink on the table and holding her free hand up to her mouth trying to stop
laughing, she held her hand that had once been holding her glass out signaling
to wait. She slowly stopped laughing and started talking while still snickering,
"Heh-heh I->snort<-I'm sorry hee, I was just joshin' ya X! Heheh, I
probably couldn't care less for Zero."
X looked up and gave Silia a puzzled look.
"Oh come on X. Could you have been any more
X lowered his head; "I could have shouted it
over the intercom like Buster did."
Silia laughed again, "Yeah, you could have!
But you also coulda been like me."
X looked back up to Silia, "What?"
Silia leaned forwards, resting her chin on her
hands, "See, I wasn't the least bit obvious, but I guess you've figured it
out now huh?" Silia smiled and tilted her head to one side.
X pointed to Silia, "Y-you?" he then
pointed at himself, "M-me!?"
Silia smiled and blushed, "Yeah... heh I
guess I just made myself look like a total ditz huh?" she placed her right
hand on X's, "I've had a crush on you for a while X... and if I had any
sense I would have tried to become friends with you first."
She began to get up but X put his hand on her
shoulder, "I think you handled yourself quite gracefully, anyway all the
ditzy women are flocking over Zero... anyway, why do you like me?"
Silia raised an eyebrow "Why do you like
X smiled, "Good question, I guess just
because you're beautiful, smart, brave and a very good friend."
"How do you know how good a friend I
am?" Silia was now thoroughly confused.
"You are always kind to people, you (almost)
never brag, and well I saw you cheering Bukau up after he was rejected from the
17th unit. Now you answer my question"
"Heh... well I guess it's just because I
liked the way you stood up for Buster when Chaerucon tried to beat him up."
Disgusting... Sigma fell into his quarters,
something was wrong, he hadn't felt quite right since he defeated Zero. He had
been arguing with his own thoughts. He had had to fight the urge to kill Cain
when he reported to the old scientist. Something was wrong.
"I'm afraid I don't see what's wrong,"
Zero pressed his fingers togethe.
"Well... you see... some of my friends
have... well you see..."
"It's okay Silia, you can trust me. I won't
tell your secret."
Silia bit her lip, "Well some of my
friends... they've... please... I don't want them hurt. But..."
"No one will be hurt. Are you here to report
"No! They've been talking like irregulars,
but they haven't tried anything... please don't tell the commander... I just
want to know: should I report them?"
"Depends on the situation. How are they
talking like irregulars? Have they threatened a human? Why have you questioned
reporting them? These are all questions to consider. But there's something else
wrong I can tell. What is it?"
Silia blushed and rubbed her hand behind her head,
"Well you see... there's this guy..."
"Ah! I see, does he know how you feel?"
"And does he share your feelings?"
"Yeah, he's wild about me."
"Then yet again I don't see the
"Well... you know X right?"
"Yes but- ohhhh. What's the problem."
"X is a pacifist."
"Yes, I see, and you're worried your
occupation will get in the way of your relationship, right?"
"Y-yeah... X is a real good man... I'd do
anything for him..."
"X is a very understanding person, I don't
think you have to worry. Now what else is there?"
"It's okay, you can tell me."
"I had violent thoughts concerning a human
