Robotic Aspirations

Portrait of a Young Man: Learn more about Wilhelm the Enforcer.


Interviewer: Wilhelm, you've risen to prominence as one of the foremost mercenaries in the galaxy. But you had humble beginnings, did you not? A life no different from any other. What spurred you down your path of ultraviolence? What confluence of events, what changing winds of circumstance and privilege led you to sit right here in front of me, dictating your autobiography?

Wilhelm: As a kid I was good at fights.


Interviewer: Let's move into later years. Puberty. The teenage years. A difficult time for anyone, perhaps more difficult for you, yes? Coming from a violent childhood, a broken home, possessing little intelligence: tell me, how did you get on with your peers? Take me inside your mind.

Wilhelm: When I was a teenager I was good at fights.


Interviewer: What about the man you are now? Who is Wilhelm the Enforcer? What drives him? What are his likes, his dislikes? Please give me an answer which does not include the word "fights".

Wilhelm: I like steak and robots.


Interviewer: This has been an extraordinary waste of time. What's the point of you, Wilhelm? What do you even want out of life?

Wilhelm: I'm really good at killing people. I wanna be a robot.

Interviewer: That's pretty weird.

Upon completing:

Wilhelm (commenting): Those were my personal emotions! I feel violated. Nobody can know I like steak!
