Archimedes, the Steam Probe, is a Cyber Tempest from Parvul. He destroys his enemies with a set of steam powered cannons.


Archimedes was the first Moramian to meet the Crogenitors, and the first to be changed into a Genetic Weapon.

When the Darkspore came to Parvul they got a run for their money. Unlike Infinity, Parvul was mostly clockwork, only the small core was solid enough to actualy land a Mutation mine on. Consequently, the first few attacks missed, giving the Parvulians warning and time to prepare. The first thing they did was send out a distress call. The second was to send out Steam Probes to find aid. Most of the Probes died in deep space, destroyed by Mines. Archimedes was the only survivor.

He soon found the Crogenitor ship, and told them his story, asking for help against the Darkspore. Before they comitted their forces, the Crogenitors asked their onboard Cybergenetic specialist, Crogenitor Kazok to study this machine to see if it was sentient. The Crogenitor made the mistake of looking for a computer brain, something which Archimedes didn't have, he had a Gear Matrix. Kazok pronounced him nonsentient, and the Crogenitors decided to take a slower course of action, dooming Parvul and the Surrounding planets to Darkspore.

Kazok was horrified at what he had done, and looking for a way to change the outcome of the battle for Parvul transfected Archimedes to give the Crogenitors a inside operative on Parvul.

When Archimedes saw what had happened to his home he almost broke down out of grief. He then vowed to find his creator and free him from this threat. For he had found help, and was the last Steam Probe.


Archimedes looks a bit like a long snake suspended in the air by a set of rotors under his belly. He has four long legs extending out sideways from his body. Gears power the legs. He has a insectile head with his Steam Cannons built into the underside. A line of smokestacks runs along his back.
