Quotation: “Illogical!”

Animus is a coppery mix of armor plates, gears, hoses, and whirring machinery. He stands six and a half feet tall, and weighs nearly 500lbs.

Animus was created two decades ago by Dr. Claus Von Shtupp. Animus was intended to be a mindless automaton, but unexpectedly exhibited basic self-awareness. Animus became on overnight sensation, catapulting the good doctor to fame and fortune. Over the ensuing years, however, Dr. Von Schtoop’s inability to re-create his amazing handiwork inspired doubt, and finally derision.
    Today, a well-worn Animus faithfully protects his charge, though the greatest danger Dr. Von Shtupp is likely to face on a given day is a debt collector. Animus still hopes that his creator may some day regain his inspiration.
