Zoom had once been a normal kora. He’d been the runt of his litter of four, and looked down upon by his siblings. One unfortunate day he had been out for a walk with his family when his brother tricked him into a wrong turn. The brother had run off laughing and Zoom had gotten hopelessly lost. A Subetan had found him days later huddled under a bench and had bribed him into coming out of his shelter with a bowl of water. After only a quick drink, he had found himself picked up and taken to The Warehouse.

The Warehouse was a large, concrete building in the seedy underbelly of Centropolis. Inside it was very dark, but Zoom could see it contained several large rooms that were filled with cages. He tried to send out telepathic messages to see if any other koras were there but, as soon as he did it felt as if he had run headfirst into a wall. He had been told later that the facility had learned of a way to block telepathic communications.

He was thrown into one of the many cages. Time passed, but in the dark it was impossible to know how much. Occasionally, a guard would come in and take one his fellow cellmates from their cage. He would never see them again.

Finally, after what he eventually found out was about a year in captivity, a guard had come for him. He had been taken to a sterile room and was told that he was needed to complete an Order. Without saying anymore, they had stabbed him with a needle full of some sort of anesthesia and begun the Conversion.

He didn’t know much of what had happened during his Conversion and he wasn’t really sure he wanted to. Somehow, his organic body had been torn apart, and most of him had been replaced with metal and wires. It wasn’t a physically painful transformation, as metal couldn’t hurt. But emotionally, something had snapped inside of him and he fell into a deep depression.

His creators in The Warehouse soon realized what had happened to him. They’d hooked him up to many machines in an attempt to fix his cerebral wiring. Eventually, they seemed to decide he couldn’t be easily fixed, in which case he wouldn’t be able to fulfill the Order they had been given. They cast him out on the streets, after reminding him that if he told anyone about The Warehouse he would trigger a self-destruct mechanism.

He’d had to turn to the life of a petty criminal to survive. He didn’t need food or water anymore, but he found his mechanics were constantly breaking down and needing replacement. He was eventually profiting enough from his thievery that he was able to begin completely replacing his outer body. It was expensive, difficult work, and he began to look less sleek and more like a hodge podge of parts. Maybe, once he had shed the body given to him at The Warehouse he could begin to come to terms with what he was.

Zoom had eventually been caught. He’d snuck into a home after getting a tip that it might contain a good haul of mechanical parts. The human there had caught him, but after a long conversation had offered him a spot in her family. Not being able to think of another way out of the situation without involving the law, he had accepted.

Completely accidentally, Zoom had found a family again.

He still stole things sometimes, though. It was a hard habit to break.
