Origin of Greg

Well, there is some sort of origin to me, ofcourse. This is the IRL inspiration and has not much to do with the Lore of my own Universe.
The Name Greg originates from the Pirate Captain in Gothic II, who I liked. As you might know, that Pirate Captain has Black Hair, not Red Hair, but he was the very Root of this, and that was long time, before I even started Modding (I also privately modded the Game "Clonk" for 3 years, before modding MC).
But now for where the Hair came from, in some year a week or two after new year I found a Lego Figurine that was a little bit covered in snow and ashes (probably from Kids blowing up small Stuff on new years eve), and unsurprisingly it was a red haired Pirate Figurine with an eyepatch.
So I decided to use that one as "myself" when playing Lego, or to be precise, just the Head, the outfit wasn’t that good, and named it Greg.
Greg wears a mostly Orange Hat (previously Red but that got retconned), that one originates from Lego aswell and was originally one of those Red Hats from the Train Lego Sets, but it is also supposed to resemble Super Marios Hat and so I mixed up both of those, Fun Fact: I wear the Mario Hat with Orange Dye in Terraria, because it’s the closest I can get to that Hat.
There is more, I played "Thief II - Metal Age" and I saw how most of the Robots the Mechanists built, had a circular glowing right eye as Camera, I thought it looked awesome and replaced the eyepatch with such an eye.
That is the reason why on the colored Logo there is two different colors for the Glasses, because one is that mechanical eye, while the other is just a blue tinted Monocle mounted to that thing.
Said Monocle was ofcourse inspired by Dr. Eggmans Glasses, even if I had to cut them in half for keeping the eye mechanical.
The Beard was kept from the original Greg Char but expanded by a slightly smaller Eggman Mustache, because I liked its look.
Gregs Body consists out of Nanites similar to the Human Shape Replicators in Stargate and Stargate Atlantis, but with an actual Mechanical Skeleton inside, that contains some more intricate Technology with Backup Nanite Sets, and the usage of several different Types of Nanites in parallel to be more redundant, for less vulnerability to Disruptor Technology.
The Greg→Gregorius change was simply to make the name more latin due to Stargate Atlantis being a part of the Lore related Origin of Gregorius.
The Last Name "Techneticies" is essentially originating from the words Technology and Net, together with a fitting word ending. Later I started to "claim", that the Element Technetium got named after me.
If I somehow had the chance to be a real life version of Gregorius (or anything remotely close to that), I wouldn’t hesitate and almost instantly take it! (preferrably after asking for the terms and conditions of that)

Flavours of Greg

There is multiple variants and alternate bodies I use depending on what I am doing or am in the mood for.
All Greg Eyes have a Gear shaped Iris Pattern, and change color depending on what I’m intending to do at that moment. During Idle time it is typically a Royal Blue.
One thing of note, I draw all my Profile Pics myself (to varying quality) and am not planning to change that, but I appreciate the effort. ;) (yes I already got that kind of fan art)
Also if you use built in Dark Mode on this Page the images might be offcolor.

Classic Gregorius

As the name might suggest, I dont really use that one anymore, since Modern Gregorius exists.
This was the original more armored form that was seen in older Profile Pictures of me.

Modern Gregorius

The most common appearance of Greg on the Internet.
Looking more similar to Modern Eggman with his Jacket, Mustache and Glasses.
As primary Melee and Energy Beam Weapon he uses his Walking Cane.
His main Tasks are usually Design and Engineering related. Creating stuff, explaining details, watching things work, and fixing Issues. ;D
Apart from that he is also the one typically giving orders whenever needed, and complaining whenever he has to work with garbage others made, while trying to make it work with his stuff.

Gregory

Sometimes I just need to get work done, so I made Gregory. And much more than one of him.
His appearance is a floating spherical Metallic/Robotic Greg Head with animated glowing Eyes/Smile, and the Hat, accompanied by two floating Hands because a floating Head can’t do much by itself. Inspired mostly by Orbot, yet another Eggman reference. XD
Gregory is the only type of Greg without the Gear Shaped Iris Pattern, instead he has Screens with animated Eye dots on them. The intent based Color System is present too though.
Gregory is like all alternate Gregs a copy of my mind that is synchronized between all Gregs.
He does many of the simple and grindy Tasks, along with pointing at the things the other Gregs talk about to put emphasis on the focus of the conversation.
Typically it is not wise to interrupt or disturb him, while he is working, as he will remove you if he has to stop you.
I have also put him as Smiley into the automatic and canned Replies on my Forums, to give subtle hints that it’s more of an unpersonalized Response.

Gregoriette

The Fun Part of Greg, and probably the one with the most exciting and free personality, while also being more combat oriented at the same time.
She is doing whatever she likes to do, typically activities related to Games, Food, Cuddles, being nice and other things she deems nice and/or cute.
It is not advised to behave unreasonably mean to others while she is around, as she will get rid of bad people around her in one way or another. There is however a type of Lawful Evil that she does like.
Her Dress is an Armor raining 360° Laser Bullet Hell at anything she targets, with sidepocket compartments containing 2 Swords and 2 Blasters, and the bottom opening of the Dress being able to act like a Jetpack.
There is actual Foxlike Ears on her head, and her holographic Ponytail is colored to look like a Fox Tail. It is a Hologram so during combat nobody can pull on it, nor does she want it to get caught on anything.
I usually am more like her whenever I play Games or feel like being cute.
