Backtagging: Sure, why not
Threadhopping: Within reason
Fourthwalling: Within reason
Offensive subjects (elaborate): None come to mind immediately but I send a PM if something becomes an issue


Hugging this character: Sure, but don't expect reciprocation. Bear in mind the T-1000 can copy anything it touches
Kissing this character: See above
Flirting with this character: If the T-1000 flirts back, someone is being manipulated
Fighting with this character: Within reason
Injuring this character (include limits and severity): This character has a very small threshold for true injury. As a liquid metal machine, that which does not kill him simply slows him down
Killing this character: We'd have to talk about this beforehand
Using telepathy/mind reading abilities on this character: As the T-1000 does not have a mind, I suspect most telepathy wouldn't work, but if in doubt shoot me a PM
Identifying that this character is not what it appears to be: Within reason! If in doubt, send me a PM, but please don't have your character immediately be aware he's a Terminator without any plausible explanation. His (skin-deep) simulation of objects is at the molecular level and hence very good. I'm pretty open minded about this, though

Warnings: This character is a Terminator. It kills people, often graphically, and favors the large blades and stabbing weapons it can form with its own body. I try to be tasteful with the violence but depending on where we are playing the writing may be more detailed.

Name: Although as a robot, the T-1000 has no name, were one close enough to him through some twist of events, one could abbreviate T-1000 into "T1K" and form the word "Tik." His opinion on that is pending.

Aliases: Generally, the T-1000 defaults to the alias of Officer Steve Austin.

...Stone Cold Steve Austin, or Six Million Dollar Man Steve Austin?: ...Yes.

Age: Chronologically speaking, the T-1000's age is a negative number. He was sent back in time mere moments after being created. In a character-centric sense, he is extremely young, but 'born' mature.

Gender: Terminators are "patterned" after male or female archetypes. This one defaults to a male form. Basically cosmetic.

Race/Species: Nanobot (perhaps 'picobot') hive with a singular 'consciousness' (a "swarm entity"); a Terminator

Physical Appearance: He is capable of taking the physical appearance of almost anything that he touches, or has touched, if it is a similar size. A lawn bag of leaves, a motorcycle, et cetera. In his default form, he is a shiny silver humanoid with only vague details, but due to his liquid-like nature he can assume whatever form suits him. Usually, though, he assumes the shape of uniformed policeman Steve Austin, who will generally be of the local police force (unless he's dealing with an actual policeman, in which case he prefers to appear to be from a different organization.) Officer Austin is a Caucasian male, maybe 28 years old, of probably Irish descent. He has short brown hair, long enough to be combed back, and piercing blue eyes. Austin has a generally symmetrical, pleasant appearance, with a perfect complexion. He is of average height with a slim wiry build. Overall, the kind of clean-cut, almost military-appearing man you expect to see in a police uniform.

Personality The T-1000 has a greater capacity for emotion than any prior Terminator model. Although it is still a coldly logical machine...he is an elite one, and knows it. Like Skynet itself, it considers machines to be a more advanced form of life than humanity; therefore, short of Skynet itself the T-1000 considers itself to be the the superior being in any exchange. As such, it can be tempted to hubris and similar failings. Its facade as Officer Austin, however, is generally the polar opposite. Steve Austin is congenial, polite, reserved, thoughtful, slow to anger and quick to peace. At least until that stands in the way of an objective of the T-1000's (or his facade is defeated).

History: Working on it! The gist of the story: Post-Cold War USA creates a supercomputer, SKYNET, to control strategic (nuclear) assets. Skynet proves too intelligent and gains sentience. When the US military tries to pull the plug on the sentient machine, it determines humanity to be the threat (to its continued existence; its 'life') and a nuclear holocaust ensues. Not all of humanity is destroyed, however, and Skynet wages war with an advanced machine army. Over time, Skynet designs machines of greater and greater technological level to infiltrate and eliminate the dogged pockets of humanity that remain. The height of Skynet's scientific development culminated in machines such as the Time Displacement Equipment (a time machine) and the 1000-Series Mimetic Polyalloy Terminator. This infiltrator unit marks a whole new level of materials science, robotics engineering and computer technology. No longer flesh wrapped over a hyperalloy endoskeleton: each molecule of the T-1000 is essentially a miniature version of the whole machine, allowing it computational power beyond anything before and the ability to change shape at the molecular level on demand.

Continued: Skynet never fully intended to deploy its design for the T-1000 prototype, because the machine was so advanced that even Skynet feared it: it was simultaneously one of the few machines Skynet had yet designed that possessed the cognitive potential to turn against its master, and it was the one machine advanced enough to be a threat even to its creator. "The T1000 had every right to be an elitist, after all, even it realized that in all probability, the only machine more complex than it was SKYNET and it was a close race even then." Skynet's hand was was forced, however, and it sent the unit back in time as a desperate final ploy against humanity. The resistance was nearing checkmate against it, and it risked the chance of a disloyal prototype over that of certain death. The T-1000 was sent back in time to eliminate Skynet's most principal foe before he had a chance to develop. Unfortunately for Skynet, this version of the T-1000 at some point determines Skynet to be the biggest threat to its continued existence, the same way Skynet had in regards to humanity, and turns against its creator.

Skills/Mental abilities: The T-1000 possesses the mental abilities of a hypercomputer; including, but not limited to: almost perfect memory, almost unlimited multitasking, almost instantaneous computation of complex equations, etc. It learns extremely quickly, but also possesses mastery of all skills programmed into it, primarily in the areas of infiltration and general extermination of the human race. These encompass those required of a military combatant, intelligence operative, spy, tailor, technician, etc.

Physical abilities: The T-1000 possesses the physical abilities of an android with a liquid, amorphous physiology, designed by a supercomputer. In addition to shapeshifiting it possesses markedly superhuman senses, strength, etc. The links below go into further detail.

Totally Officer Steve Austin. Definitely. Yep.
