The Jagson Story
Jagson was created with the sole purpose to act as a weapon upon the ruthless villain Red Beards’ ship, The Sea Swallow. The nature of Jagsons’ construction remained a mystery for many years but going by the accounts of Red Beards survivors, we have been able to construct a rough outline of its component parts and the purpose they served upon The Sea Swallow.
Survivors have stated that the first thing that made them aware of Red Beards presence was a blinding white light followed by flames and destruction. This describes the use of a high-powered and highly focussed Photon emitter beam which could serve as a form of directional light as well as an extremely powerful laser weapon capable of igniting any material. Further survivors described Jagson as a highly manoeuvrable submersible which would appear to submerge its-self below the ocean surface in order to track its prey using its optical sensor as a periscope. After identifying its target, witnesses have stated that Jagson would then claw its way up the side of any vessel whereby it would massacre the unaware crew.
Due to the nature of Jagsons’ actions, whereby it would destroy its target and then return to its master, it is reasonable to speculate that it was created without the capacity for free will. Assuming this is the case it would have made Jagson an efficient and obedient weapon in Red Beards’ arsenal. Without any means of countermanding an order once placed, Jagson would travel to the ends of the Earth until it had completed its task.
However, unbeknownst to Red Beard, there was dissent among the ranks of his crew. Many were dissatisfied with their terrible living conditions on The Sea Swallow and sought to end the tyrant Red Beards’ reign. Under the cover of darkness, the crew modified the core code of Red Beards’ favourite pet, Jagson. By removing all code referring to Red Beard, they were able to turn Jagson on his former master. To this day, Jagson still hunts his former master.
We do not know if Red Beard is still on this planet or even if he is still alive. But, in the dead of night, it is possible to see the beam of light from Jagsons’ search light over the horizon, searching. Forever more.
