Braylon Servantis (born 1956) is the protagonist of Bonds. He first appeared in Big Plans. He is a human/mutant Cerebrocrustacean hybrid from the planet Earth. He is the Timeline 1 equivalent of the canon Servantis.
As a human, Servantis was a tall, exceptionally pale man with a pointed beard and no hair. He had black eyes with dark outlines around them. He wore a standard Plumber suit from the original series, but in blue.
As a Cerebrocrustacean hybrid, Servantis has pale purple skin, a large head and wears black armor. His eyebrows and beard are pointed, similar to Dr. Psychobos'. He has spikes on the sides of his head. His eyes are red and he also has a red crystal on the middle of his head. He can open his scaled head which unveils his brain. He has three claws on his right hand and a pincer as his left hand, with the same colorization as his brain-covering scale.
While working for the Rooters, he wears black Proto-Tech armor.
Servantis is an enigmatic and intelligent individual who prefers to keep to himself and sometimes fails to understand social cues.
Although he tends to come off as cold and distant, Servantis is protective of people he cares about to the point that it could cloud his sense of right and wrong.
Servantis is also good judge of character.
Prior to Bonds
Servantis was born to a family that constantly pushed him to his limits and belittled him for his strange personality. He also lost all his hair at a young age, giving his family more of a reason to ridicule him.
In 1976, when he turned 20, he cut all ties with them and enrolled in an unspecified university as a medical student. His research and skills in conducting practical work led to the Plumbers discovering him and offering him a job. He dropped out of the university at the age of 22 in 1978 and went to the Plumbers' Academy. Despite barely passing combat training, he joined the Plumbers as a medic with the ulterior motive of experimenting on the alien lifeforms that other Plumbers would bring to their headquarters. He soon realized that the powers possessed by these aliens could be used for good.
Sometime in 1981, the Plumbers brought a Cerebrocrustacean to the Mt. Rushmore headquarters. Servantis, unfamiliar with the species at the time, did some research and came up with the idea to combine his DNA with that of a Cerebrocrustacean to give him the increased brainpower to conduct his experiments with minimal mistakes. He also intended to isolate himself in the Null Void. The experiment turned out unsuccessful and he decided to try again some other time. Unbeknownst to him, the Cerebrocrustacean DNA did not properly merge with his human DNA, causing his cells to degenerate.
In 1983, he tended to the injuries of a newly-recruited Plumber named Adriel Albright after the latter's first mission. The two slowly began forming a friendship.
In 1985, once Servantis realized the toll his experiment took on his body, he explored the Extranet and found an Arachnichimp Plumber named Lal'Ek, who was tracking down a Cerebrocrustacean named Dr. Psychobos. Servantis paid her a sizeable amount of Taydens to bring Dr. Psychobos to Earth and make it look like an accident.
In Big Plans, after Lal'Ek and her squad made Dr. Psychobos crash on Earth, Servantis was tasked with treating his injuries. He took the opportunity to extract Dr. Psychobos' DNA and merge it with his own to stabilize himself. He was caught by Magister Chang and sent to the Null Void for disobedience. Thinking that everything went according to plan, he intended to start a new life in the Null Void. His hopes were crushed mere days later when he was approached by three members of a secret and powerful group of Plumbers called the Rooters; Magister Coronach, Magister Gorvan and Magister Chang. They explained that they hired Lal'Ek to get in contact with him so that he would experiment on Dr. Psychobos and subsequently get sent to the Null Void. They revealed that they had been watching him for some time and that they wanted to exploit his skills in alien experimentation by putting him in-charge of the Null Void's branch of Incarcecon. He refused, but was swayed to obey them when they threatened to kill Adriel. Deeming Adriel's life more important than his own freedom, Servantis relented.
Servantis spent the next year settling into Incarcecon as its warden, experimenting on the prisoners and hybridizing them with other alien DNA to see if it would be compatible with their natural DNA. Although he mostly did it out of curiosity, there were a few instances where he did it to cure their ailments or defects. For example, a Lepidopterran named Slifec was born without wings, so Servantis spliced her DNA with that of a Null Guardian's to give her wings.
In Never Forget You, while he was out for air, Servantis found an unconscious Adriel falling into the void after having his right leg broken by an unnamed alien. He brought him to Incarcecon and wrapped his leg in a cast. After he regained consciousness, Adriel told him that he came to the Null Void to bring Servantis out. Servantis declined, claiming he was putting his skills to better use in Incarcecon than on Earth. He gave him a tour of Incarcecon by lending him a hoverchair, explaining that he was in charge of the facility. After much prying from Adriel, Servantis revealed why he joined the Plumbers and told him about his initial attempt at giving himself Cerebrocrustacean DNA, as well as the truth behind what happened on the day he was sent to the Null Void, though he left out any mention of the Rooters. Adriel expressed his disappointment at Servantis for knowingly going against the Plumbers' rules, but Servantis assured him that the end justified the means. A few days later, Adriel's leg healed completely. Before sending him home via a teleporter, Servantis gave him a Null Void Projector designed to teleport him to Incarcecon. Adriel planned to visit Servantis periodically, but Servantis asked him to stay on Earth unless absolutely necessary, stating that he wanted him to live his life without wasting his time. Adriel pressed on and offered to get him professional help, but Servantis still refused. Adriel then went home, promising to return someday.
In 1989, the Rooters put Servantis' skills to the test when they brought a large group children and teenagers to him, both human and alien. They ordered him to fuse them with DNA from other species. Dozens of them did not survive the hybridization process, but the majority of them did. This encouraged Magister Leander to hybridize himself as well. As suggested by Magister Wheels, the remaining hybrid children were forced to work for the Rooters as a group known as the Amalgam Kids. Servantis had no further involvement with this iteration of the Amalgam Kids and continued working at Incarcecon.
In the early 1990s, he briefly met one of the new Rooters, Magister Wheels' husband, Trystan. Trystan later went into hiding after learning about the Rooters' true goals and practices, prompting them to issue a galaxy-wide manhunt.
In Thnks fr th Mmrs, Adriel came to Incarcecon with his 5-year-old son, Alan, whose body temperature had dropped dramatically after coming into contact with a plant from Lepidopterra, which Adriel brought home after his most recent mission. After examining Alan, Servantis fused him with Pyronite DNA to increase his temperature and save his life. He gave Adriel some private time with Alan and went to his office, where he was contacted by Magister Gorvan, who instructed him to keep Alan as the Rooters planned to restart the Amalgam Kids. He reluctantly obeyed, suggesting to Adriel that he should leave Alan with him in Incarcecon to help him master his powers. Adriel returned home with Alan, bringing Servantis with him to help explain the situation to his wife, Adalia. She was very distraught by what had happened to Alan, but insisted that he should stay with them, whereas Adriel felt it was safer for him to be with Servantis.
Distressed by the sight of his parents arguing, Alan concentrated and was able to revert to human. This gave Adriel hope that Alan could live with him and Adalia after all. Servantis had hoped to take Alan non-confrontationally, but was forced to change his plans. He electrocuted Alan and Adalia and apologized to Adriel before electrocuting him too. He erased two hours' worth of memories from Adriel and Adalia's mind and went back to the Null Void with Alan, the plant that Adriel brought back from Lepidopterra and the Null Void Projector he gave Adriel 19 years prior. There, he was greeted by Magister Wheels, along with her two adopted kids, Helen and Pierce. She informed him that he was being assigned a new job at their headquarters; to oversee the new Amalgam Kids, consisting of Alan, Helen and Pierce.
On the same day, Servantis altered Alan's memories to make him believe his parents were dead and fused Helen and Pierce with the DNA of a Kineceleran and an unknown species, respectively. He discovered that Helen and Pierce's bodies were filled with microscopic probes, which were all connected. He extracted a probe from Helen's body for further study. He was replaced as warden of Incarcecon and subsequently moved into Rooter Headquarters and started training the Amalgam Kids. In his free time, he researched the Lepidopterran plant and discovered that it induces hypothermia if handled too carelessly, explaining why Alan's temperature dropped when he touched it.
Almost three months later, in Cool Kids, he pitted Helen and Pierce against each other in a training session. After Pierce won, Servantis revealed that the Rooters were sending the Amalgam Kids on their first mission. He later joined Magister Coronach in debriefing the kids about the mission, stating that their objective was to retrieve the Conquest Ray from the leader of the Incurseans, Emperor Milleous. On the way to the space cafe Fllrton where Milleous was having a drink, Pierce confided in Helen, doubting that they would succeed. Servantis interrupted him through comms and assured him that he had the necessary skills to lead the Amalgam Kids to success. He also stated that he would guide them on the mission. However, as soon as the kids arrived at Fllrton, Servantis muted himself at the request of the Rooters, as they wanted the Amalgam Kids to fail the mission. Despite this, he was still able to monitor them and intervened when Helen was injured and rendered unconscious in an explosion by bringing the kids back to Rooter Headquarters with Magister Wheels and Magister Coronach.
He conducted a medical check-up on Helen and gave her a sedative, after which he was approached by the two aforementioned Magisters. Magister Wheels asked him when Helen would be able to resume training. Servantis explained that, while her physical body would heal within two or three days, she would be emotionally distraught for considerably longer. He advised Magister Wheels to show Helen love and care, to which she reluctantly agreed. She promptly left the scene, giving Servantis the chance to berate Magister Coronach for purposely setting the Amalgam Kids up for failure. He left him with his thoughts, then went to visit Alan to console him. He told him that his parents would not be disappointed in him for failing the mission. Curious, Alan asked to know more about them, but Servantis insisted that he would divulge more information soon. Wanting to improve his mastery over his powers, he asked Servantis to train him, and he obliged.
Over a year later, in Verge, a bounty hunter named Disease found Trystan on Revonnah and brought him to an undisclosed location. The Rooters retrieved him and brought him back to Rooter Headquarters. Not wanting to split their attention between Trystan and the Amalgam Kids, they canceled the kids' next mission and ordered Servantis to break the news. Dissatisfied with the explanation given, the kids decided to snoop around to get answers by disabling the camera in the elevator to access the restricted levels. Alan and Pierce went to sub-level 2, only to be greeted by Servantis, who told them to return to their rooms. Magister Gorvan and Magister Leander arrived at the scene. Magister Gorvan reprimanded the boys for disobeying orders, and soon realized that Helen wasn't with them. He checked the cameras and saw Helen taking Trystan out of the interrogation room in which he was held. He made an announcement to notify the rest of the Rooters and told Servantis to take the boys back to their rooms. They tried to stand their ground, but Servantis electrocuted them to knock them out. The two Magisters then left to find Helen.
Contrary to what he was told to do, Servantis left Alan and Pierce on the ground and went to find Helen as well. He found her with Trystan in her room, with Magister Wheels in the doorway, about to kill her using a Techadon Dissipator. Thinking on his feet, he electrocuted Magister Wheels to death. Seconds passed before Helen suddenly began writhing on the ground in pain. He theorized that the probes had activated because Magister Wheels had died, and wanted Trystan to follow him to the operating room to see if his theory was true. Trystan wished to stay behind as he had broken his leg and couldn't walk. Servantis took off, promising to come back to help him escape. When he reached the operating room, he found Pierce in the same state, with Magister Coronach and Alan accompanying him. He performed a scan on Helen and Pierce's bodies, confirming his theory. He sedated Helen and confessed to killing Magister Wheels to Magister Coronach, who grew furious. Servantis ultimately managed to convince him to help him save Helen and Pierce. Magister Chang and Phil soon found them and demanded to know the truth, but Servantis and Magister Coronach lied.
Magister Gorvan came shortly after that and revealed that he found Magister Wheels' body, and that he killed Trystan. To balance the scales, he intended to kill Servantis and the Amalgam Kids, as he claimed they were of no use because Magister Wheels, who came up with the idea in the first place, was dead. Magister Chang agreed, but Magister Coronach and Phil did not. Phil transformed into his Terroranchula form and trapped Magister Chang in a web before engaging in a battle with Magister Gorvan with Alan's help. This gave Servantis a chance to focus on saving Helen and Pierce. He explained to Magister Coronach that the probes were overloading their pain receptors, killing them slowly. He began writing a program to make the probes attack each other, which proved successful. He persuaded Magister Coronach to set the Amalgam Kids free, admitting that he cared about them and that he did not want them to suffer the same fate as the original Amalgam Kids. Magister Coronach agreed, so Servantis erased a year's worth of memories from Alan's mind and almost all of Helen and Pierce's memories. He personally brought Alan home and restored Adriel and Adalia's memories. Without mentioning the Rooters by name, he justified his actions to Adriel, saying that everything he did was to protect him. Adriel did not see it that way, but instead of arguing with him extensively, he thanked him for returning Alan and told him to go home, threatening to call the Plumbers if he ever saw him again.
He returned to Rooter Headquarters and participated in a meeting with the Rooters as an official member, acting as a replacement for Magister Wheels, per the request of Magister Coronach. Magister Leander arrived late, bringing with him Magistrata Latdu. She explained that she used to be a Rooter herself, but she left to focus on the Plumbers as a whole. Displeased with the direction the Rooters had gone in her absence, she officially declared herself the leader and intended to make major changes. Intrigued by Servantis' role in the organization, she urged him to tell her everything that had transpired since he was forced to work for them.
Powers and Abilities
Before his mutation, Servantis was a genius medic and scientist who was able to build advanced machinery to fulfill any number of tasks.
After becoming half Cerebrocrustacean, Servantis' intellect swelled to new heights. He'd also gained the ability to read minds, communicate telepathically, filter out reality and weaken people by using his newfound mental powers.
Servantis also has electrokinesis and is able to shoot electric beams from his cranium. Servantis also shows an avid manipulation of matter and other supernatural phenomena via electrical psychokinetic manipulation.
Servantis is able to erect potent force fields, levitate and move objects/people with his thoughts.
From being part Cerebrocrustacean, it can be assumed that Servantis has some of the same weaknesses as any Cerebrocrustacean.
Using his mnemokinesis sometimes overwhelms him and may make him nauseous.
- Adriel Albright: Adriel is Servantis' first and only friend and is the person he cares about the most, as he is the only person to treat him as an equal. Servantis is willing to go to great lengths to protect him, as evidenced when he sacrificed his freedom for over 20 years by working for the Rooters so they would not kill him. While Servantis regrets causing Adriel emotional pain when he kidnapped his son Alan, he does not regret his actions as they ultimately kept him alive.
- Alan Albright: Servantis acted as somewhat of a father figure to Alan when he was an Amalgam Kid and cared about him the most out of the three members in the second iteration of the team, mostly due to his connection to Adriel.
- Helen Wheels: After Helen was injured in her first mission with the Amalgam Kids, Servantis stood up for her by advising Magister Wheels to give her time to rest as she was emotionally distraught. He also cared about her enough to risk his standing with the Rooters by killing Magister Wheels after he saw that she was about to kill her.
- Pierce Wheels: When Pierce was an Amalgam Kid, Servantis saw him as a capable leader.
- Magister Coronach: Servantis finds Magister Coronach to be the most sensible Rooter and is the only one he comes close to respecting. Servantis almost feels sorry for him, as he can tell that he often has doubts about being with the Rooters.
- Magister Karter Chang: Magister Chang has a history with Servantis, as he was his commanding Magister at the Mt. Rushmore headquarters and then had a more distant relationship once they started working with the Rooters. While they both dislike each other, Magister Chang respects Servantis' skills.
