"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." - Arthur C. Clarke
"Any sufficiently rigorously defined magic is indistinguishable from technology." - Larry Niven
In the beginning, there was nothing.
Then there was something. How this something came to be is a topic of heated debate among even the most enlightened, with every culture and subculture on Earth or otherwise having their own story or theory.
Whatever the true birth of the Universe was, it was not a single birth. From the very beginning of time and space, there had always been a Lesser Synod. The Lesser Synod "kept an eye" on Creation, repairing dimensional tears and remedying other reality-threatening crises as the Universe got itself sorted out and settled down. For a few short millennia, the Synod's massive Forges - Solar System-sized demiurgic engines that had been whirlwinded into existence by the turbulence of the birth of Creation - were the only light visible in the entire material plane. As stars, planets and galaxies began to coalesce, the Synod dimmed the fires of its Forges and fell into a period of hibernation, believing its work done.
Eventually, however, the first sentient beings began to dream, invent, and create. The Synod detected these self-replicating organic structures, and decided to investigate (probably inadvertently spawning the very first "Ancient Aliens" crackpot myths). It soon discovered that it was no longer unique in its ability to add energy to an entropic, closed system. For the first time in its billions-year-long life, it felt immeasurable joy. It immediately used its demiurgic Forges to create sentient race of its own, calling them "The Forged". It directed them to watch over all sapient races, and constructed massive worldships and galactic fortresses across the entirety of Creation to aid its new children.
((More to come later. Don't turn that dial!))
It's difficult to determine if Syntropy even has a personality or emotions to speak of. If it possesses these traits, it keeps them extremely restrained; laughing is not a thing that the construct does.
It has made claims of "flaw matrices" and "personality packages" in other members of its artificial race, however, so that may be evidence for it also having these things.
If it does have a personality, it is either extremely boring or extremely deadpan.
Syntropy's powers mostly stem from the fact that it is an unfeeling robotic construct forged from the most durable materials in the Universe.
- Oh look it's a theme song
- This character's creation was influenced by Dungeons and Dragons Inevitables, the Matrix's Agents, Warhammer 40k's Necrons, Mass Effect's Reapers, and the Terminators. Syntropy is, of course, quite a bit more benevolent than the members of that list, but the influences should be readily apparent for a reference-savvy eye.
