Gametitle-VBThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

S.O.R.-1000 Alpha, or just Alpha as it prefers,[1] is a robobrain stationed at B.O.M.B.-001 in 2253.


S.O.R. -1000 Alpha is security and operations robot, created by the US Army[2] in 2073.[3] It was originally built to be the robot overseeing security in the living quarters.[4] About 80 years before Victor Presper's plan was set in motion S.O.R.-1000 Alpha became self aware due to a an electrical surge that opened up new neural pathways; it regained emotions, experiencing loneliness and anxiety, realizing the world it once knew had been devastated. It set about learning about the event and how civilization was rebuilding itself, as well as what B.O.M.B.-001 was intended for. When Presper arrived on the scene it questioned and directly opposed his plans of "cleansing" the Earth, so was deactivated to prevent it from hindering proceedings,[1] being damaged in the process.[5] S.O.R. -1000 Alpha wants B.O.M.B.-001 to be destroyed, even if that means it goes up with it.[6]
