Mechon outside their faced mechon armor look very similar to how they did as humans, but their bodies have several mechanical parts added to them. The faced mechon armor's appearance varies a lot and can look like mostly anything the mechon desired as a design at the time of creation, although it's body is typically humanoid looking and always has a face.

History[edit]

A long time ago, there was a war between two titans, the Bionis and the Mechonis. The Mechonis' warriors were the mechon, mechanical creatures created by the machina to battle against the homs, who were fighting for the Bionis. The homs eventually managed to win, due to the power of a legendary weapon called the Monado, which could destroy mechon easily. After some time, your kind of mechon was created, called faced mechon. faced mechon are in fact homs who were captured and turned into cyborgs with mechanical bodies. Some faced mechon retain their memories, but others do not. Homs are almost entirely equivalent to humans.

In D&D, a playable mechon was originally a human, that was captured by a mechon assault and turned into a mechon themselves at the mechon's home base. When playing a mechon, a player may wish to ask themselves: What was the event that led to their capture as a human? What do they wish to do moving forward as a Mechon? Are they truly independent of other Mechon, or must they still follow their superior's commands?

Society[edit]

Faced mechon mostly retain the personalities they had as homs. After being captured and transformed, they follow a chain of command. However, nowadays, the chain of command has been mostly destroyed, and thus most Mechon are free agents. Most Mechon incapable of thought are hostile to all living beings except other Mechon.

Mechon Names[edit]

Most faced mechon, while outside their mechon armors, either keep their original name, or don't remember it. Their mechon armor is typically called "<type of metal> Face".

Homs: Mumkhar, Fiora, Gadolt.

Mechon armor: Bronze Face, Silver Face, Metal Face, Jade Face.
