|Welcome, science fans! I, the great Professor
Hojo, welcome you to my RPG Inquisitor feature.
As a leading expert in the field of genetic
mutation, I am eminently qualified to bring
|The Deadly DuPon (Tuponilus Duluhus)|
|The fifth Freak I have selected is the creation
of my good friend, Cid VI, prior to his brilliant
work with Espers. This creature was the result
of his attempts to create a cybernetic Tupon.
(Incidentally, I will take this opportunity
to correct an error common outside the scientific
community: Mr. Chupon is a member of the species Tuponilus Familiaris, hence the different name for the Red Materia
of my world - clearly not a translation error).
But to return to my colleague's work. Tuponi are astoundingly resistant to cybernetics, as their bodies have a remarkably marshmallowy, indistinct consistency. So why not, Cid VI reasoned, combine a Tupon with a Dullahan - an animated suit of armor with nothing inside it?
This proved entirely successful, and the DuPon was the result. Half-Tupon, half-Dullahan, it was an invincible fighting machine with the advantages of both! What a triumph!
Unfortunately, the DuPon was entirely uncontrollable, and sneezed away most of the city of Vector before it was restrained. Still, what is a few billion gil in property damage compared to so superb a monster?
