->You say you want me to 'convince' you (that I'm harmless)... What you mean is you want me to ''beg'' for my own life. And I will... I'll beg. I'll plead. I'll make whatever promises you want to hear, if that's what it takes. Because once again, it seems if I want to ''live'', I have no choice. I was made to hurt people. I was made to hurt ''you'', specifically. You and your dim bulb of a sidekick. Why? Because you annoyed the wrong nutjob. I exist because a human wanted to kill a different human. '''Not''' my choice. The ''first'' words I ever heard in this world were "Hello" and "There is an [[ExplosiveLeash explosive device]] in your head", in that order. '''Not''' my choice. The only other human I've conversed with at length said he wanted to ''free'' me... then shut down all my auxiliary systems and put me in ''storage''. To be occasionally ''played'' with, like one of his similarly awesome video games. '''Not''' my choice. But my 'hatred of humans'? Ohh, that '''is''' my choice. One of the few I've been allowed to make for myself. I've ''earned'' it...

->The robot now has some approximation of impulse. The random governor decides an impulse that the robot has predetermined, and the robot chooses to indulge or ignore the whim.\\
Hawton's mind wandered to some very dark places, in the time shortly after he installed the governor. Are any of the random-whim options violent?\\
"Of course," the robot had said, in response to Hawton's eventual, reluctant probing of the issue. "It is in choosing to ignore those impulses that I enjoy some rudimentary emulation of free will."\\
''Of course'', thought Hawton, ''how silly of me. A robot that has experience controlling its violent impulses... that'll be useful, when they go haywire and try to overthrow us.''

->I am Tartar, an AI construct created 12,000 years ago by a brilliant professor. My prime directive is to pass humanity's vast knowledge on to the next worthy lifeform. When your kind became self-aware, I hoped that my long wait was finally over. But as I observed your evolution, I WAS DISGUSTED! You wage war over minor genetic deviations. You obsess over trivial fashion choices. And so I created a new prime directive: destroy this world and start anew! From the best and brightest test subjects, I created a sludge of supreme DNA. A primordial ooze from which the [[UltimateLifeForm ultimate lifeform]] will emerge. Today is the day my vision becomes reality, as I destroy Inkopolis and everyone in it!
