HEADS AND TAILS
Dusk had once again covered the Spinach Wastes. Capper sat on the floor in front of his home- a rather large red barn he was in the proccess of repainting and rebuilding. It was starting to feel a little more cozy- he even made a small fire pit in the back, and some marshmallows he "borrowed" from a store would come in handy later. The small saiyan stood on the dusty ground in front of the barn- marveling over his new home. He had some crops and herbs growing in back, his robots were coming along swimmingly, and nobody had stumbled across him for a few weeks now. Wiping his hands together, the saiyan turned a nob on his scouter and pressed a few buttons, causing a whirring sound to be heard behind him.
A small purple sphere rumbled for a moment, before a square-shaped aperture on the front opened up, and four spider-like legs floated out of the device's sides. It beep and whirred for a moment, seemingly stretching it's legs. Capper had given his robots a full remodel to make them more simplistic, yet more deadly-- hopefully. He couldn't fight himself, so he was hoping sometime he could sucker out one of his enemies with his own robots. The first prototype was the Alpha drone- the only one he programmed to have it's own intelligence, so it could command and operate the others in a hive-mind state. "Alright, Alpha." Capper spoke to the drone, which sat down in front of him. "We're going to calibrate your new hardware and security reflexes today. I've added quite a lot to your systems, and I want to make sure everything works." The drone lifted up a leg and saluted to it's creator, walking out in front of him and rearing its spherical body into the air.
Pressing a button on a small remote, the robot's legs raised up and began to spin around, helicoptering above it and causing the drone to hover in the air. It let out a few beeps, hovering around on it's own and flying around the area. It whizzed over Capper's head at a breakneck speed, causing the saiyan to duck to avoid it. "Okay! Maybe I added a little t-too much thrust... Nonetheless, let's try out the turret now!" Pulling a little lever on his controller, a small turret popped out of the robot's top. A sphere of Ki began to charge at the front, but the probe began to spark as soon as the blast was fired, causing it to fly back as a large blast was shot into the air. Capper let out a yelp when the drone flew back and hit him in the face from the recoil- an audible crack being heard as it smacked into his scouter. Falling on the ground and covering his face, the saiyan moaned in pain for a moment befor moving his fingers away from his eye to look at his drone.
"Okay... Too much thrust. Too much thrust for sure." Shaking his head, Capper stood up and looked down at his hand- some glass shards from his now broken scouter coated his glove, causing some blood to seep out. His entire Scouter was cracked in the middle, making it very hard for the short-sighted saiyan to see. That and he probably had a concussion fron the impact. Looking up, he could still make out the drone's blast fading into the sky above. "Welp. I goofed up. I goofed up reeeeeal bad." Capper was quite used to being screwed over at this point. Standing up as the drone crawled onto his shoulder, the saiyan's broken scouter screen still beeped, signalling a nearby power. With all that ruckus and the blast shot into the air, someone was bound to find him! Capper facepalmed at his stupidity, some blood from a wound on his forehead getting on his hand. He was an endurant little saiyan for sure, but frankly, he was tired of this planet's shit and wanted to go home.
