 A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away-- no, wait a minute, that's not how it goes. Let's start again: welcome to Blood Gulch, a box canyon that's home of the most useless, inept, and generally idiotic soldiers in the galaxy. This one, as it happens, is about five hundred years in the future. There's a good level of technology -- space travel, power armor, artificial intelligence, the works -- but people are still generally assholes, especially after you get to know them. Essentially, Red vs. Blue is an extension off of the Halo universe, which itself can be summarized as "there's a guy in kickass green armor who saves the world from aliens intent on wiping out humanity a couple times over." Of course, there's more to it than that, but as far as RvB is concerned? That's pretty much all you need to know.

Actually, RvB focuses on a different war entirely: a war between the Red and Blue armies (imagine that) that's locked in an epic stalemate. Given that the soldiers on both sides spend more time arguing with each other than bothering to fight, chances are it's going to be a while until they manage to advance the war any further.

That's all right, though, because as it turns out, there is no Red vs. Blue war at all. Instead, the troopers in Blood Gulch, whose stories form the bulk of the first five seasons, are (unknowingly) simulation soldiers for Project Freelancer. Project Freelancer was but one of many attempts during the war effort against the aliens and focused on creating special agents, each paired with an artificial intelligence and a pretty sweet suit of armor and different enhancements. The Red and Blue bases exist as testing grounds for these agents, whose only apparent purpose is as guinea pigs. Nothing of note happens there unless Freelancer Command orders it or sends a Freelancer to the outpost, which in the case of Blood Gulch sets off a wild and crazy chain of events.

However, there's a darker side to Project Freelancer, one very few are aware of. The backbone of the program is the artificial intelligence units assigned to the different agents. Things don't go exactly according to plan, considering some of the A.I. decide they're not that interested in following orders and others end up driving their partners stark raving mad. Eventually, the implantation experiments halt completely, and agents leave the program left and right, some for their own purposes and some to look for the Alpha. The Alpha, they say, is the original A.I. in Project Freelancer, the only one they could get their hands on. As the project was looking at a larger scale than one soldier (they can't all make Master Chiefs), the only option was to copy it. Each A.I. had a certain longing for the original, which ended up in making their partners go after it.

One problem, though: the A.I. aren't copied off of Alpha. Copying an A.I. isn't possible, so the Director of Project Freelancer did the next best thing: he tortured the Alpha until it developed a split personality and was forced to shed different aspects of itself to survive with any semblance of sanity intact. And then they stuck those fragments into soldiers and told them to go fight a war. No wonder the agents didn't take it well. One in particular, Agent Maine, is influenced by his A.I. to reassemble the Alpha by way of killing off Freelancers and taking their equipment and A.I. for himself. Maine becomes the Meta and a big enough problem for Project Freelancer that, following the war, the project comes under scrutiny from higher-ups in the military. As a result, the truth of what was done to create the project's A.I.s comes to light, and things come crashing down around them.

And as for Alpha? Well, they hid him in a little canyon called Blood Gulch as one of the simulation soldiers, thinking nothing would ever happen to him. Guess they never considered what sending a tank to a canyon full of idiots meant.

Name: O'Malley/Doc (Frank DuFrense)
From: Red vs. Blue
Appearance: Purple MJLOLNIR Mark VI armor
Age: O'Malley: a few years; Doc: 25
Gender: AI/Male
O'Malley, formerly known as Omega, is a homicidal AI who initially desires nothing more than the conquest/destruction of the universe and all who exist within. He claims to do it for the sake of evil and appears to embrace this mentality. However, as he is supposedly a fragment of the Alpha AI who represents Alpha's anger, this just may be his way of striking back against a universe that allowed him to be split from his whole. In fact, his bid to conquer the universe may just be his way of dealing with his pain.
Doc is the exact opposite of O'Malley, he's a pacifist/consciencious objector who just wants everyone to get along. He may not be a doctor (hell, the Blood Gulch teams simply nicknamed him "Doc" when he was really a medic, and it stuck), and he may not take sides, but he's willing to do whatever it takes to help. That said, he may not be able to do much as he believed medic meant, "guy who comforts people as they die", which may be irrelevant in Ink City. He may improve his skills though.

The Omega AI was the result of Project Freelancer splitting the Alpha AI into different fragments, Omega representing his anger. Shortly after, he was paired with Agent Texas, who was known to be a bit of a badass and a bitch. They cooperated peacefully initially, but he began to influence her to be more violent and eventually started turning her against her superiors. This resulted in her almost completely cutting ties with her (supposed) boyfriend Leonard Church. When Project Freelancer was shut down, Omega and Tex continued working together up until they reached Blood Gulch, where Tex was "killed" and became a "ghost" while Omega, now calling himself O'Malley initially possessed Blue Team rookie Private Caboose.
Doc's history is a lot less well-known, with very little information about his past save that he became a medic after attending Jamaica State University. He was brought to Blood Gulch after the "death" (and return as a robot-inhabiting ghost) of Blue Team Private Leonard L. Church. He quickly revealed his pacifism and neutrality to canyon and, after hilarity ensued, ended up staying in a secluded area of the canyon.
After Church and Tex purged Caboose of O'Malley, the AI quickly possessed the pacifist, thus saving himself from death. From that point forward, they worked together (well more O'Malley using Doc's body for actions while Doc attempted, and failed, to make him nice) on multiple projects to further O'Malley's goals of universal conquest/destruction. However, this partnership ended when O'Malley left Doc in an attempt to gain an army of aliens, which culminated in the AI's first death after Andy the Bomb detonated on his escape ship. He was later found by the Meta, a.k.a. Agent Maine and joined the rogue Freelancer in an attempt to recreate the Alpha as a whole. This ultimately resulted in his true demise via EMP at Freelancer Command.

Moral Standing:
O'Malley: Chaotic Evil, might change with character development
Doc: Lawful Neutral (if I get accepted, I'll let the Inky mayor know why he could end up Chaotic Good)

Dreams: O'Malley wants to conquer the universe and crush every living thing into dust, or so he believes. Doc just wants to be the best medic he can be (though his original idea of medic meant someone who comforts a person as they die) as well as be a nice guy in general.
Fears: O'Malley: Sangheilli; Doc: Anything dangerous, painful, or scary
Extra: Occurs after the events of Reconstruction and they are both just as confused as the other that they are reunited again. Having been a part of the Meta, O'Malley may gain some character development and begin questioning what he truly desires. Within Ink City, O'Malley may attempt to assemble a Legion of Doom-esque alliance with other villains, how that works out? Depends on the characters who show interest. Doc on the other hand will probably try to act as a peacemaker and friend to everyone because he's a genuinely nice guy.

Writing Sample:

The foolish fools. Soon oblivion would be at hand and they would know his wrath. He would demolish this city, burn the inhabitants, and then rap-
"WOAH! O'Malley, aren't you going a bit far?"
"Silence. We are evildoers. Monsters. These are thing we do that should make us alive."
"What about peaceful negotiations and elections? It's nice, calming..."
"Yes. That would work. If by peaceful "negotiations and elections" you mean raining down nuclear missiles and a bloody revolution. And if by "nice" and "calming" you mean hellishly oppressive dictatorship."
