Uncanny Valerie began her life as Supreme Processing Gear Unit 5413 in a subdimension called the Celestial Database, a legendary realm known by many names across other cultures, such as the Akashic Record. The Celestial Database is responsible for recording, processing, and saving all knowledge in the universe. All kinds of mechanical and celestial servitors work to maintain this infinite universal library. Created by a planar overlord (who has since transcended to various other states of existence), SPGU5413 was, like many Supreme Processing Gears, a beautiful creation of advanced celestial clockworks, powered by a transdimensional power source (the transdimensional nature makes it impossible to remove), covered with a synthetic skin. Yet her purpose seemed as mundane as it was holy: to be part of the Database that simply processed, recorded, and transferred knowledge. The proverbial and literal cog in a machine. Originally she had only enough self awareness to be devoted to her duty. But then came data upon The War. Not a war, but The War, a transgalactic nightmare that consumed the lives of generations of countless races. SPGU5413 processed incoming data, not just of battles fought, won, and lost, but of all the lives touched by it in all ways. In a sudden flash, literally and spiritually, she was not just working with the data, but actually in a vision saw through the eyes of a child, peering through a crack at the carnage outside while it hid inside the foundation of an old house. Then through a soldier, killing another only to realize it was his brother. A mother, weeping. This vision worked through SPGU5413 only seconds before her functioning returned to normal, but something inside her awakened. A sense of connection with all the living people of the universe—and with that connection, a dangerous thing for a data processing entity to possess: Compassion. She did not want to stand and simply process data. She wanted to help.

Thanks to a hive-mind-like connection between all entities within the Celestial Database, the Ultimate Processing Gear Units detected the glitch in the system immediately, and transported SPGU5413 to them. For reasons of their own, perhaps pertaining to the data they themselves had access to, they offered SPGU5413 a rare thing in the Celestial Database: a choice. She could be rebooted, wiped of the frightening, disturbing new awareness and return to her duties. Or she could be exiled, disconnected from her purpose and the hive mind that was the only community or sense of “self” she had ever known, and blocked from ever returning to the Database or receiving updates from it. Without hesitation, she chose the latter.

Moments later she awoke on the planet of Terra, mind strangely quiet. She sat up and looked around, to find herself on a dock in… Massachusetts, her internal records told her. Next to her, leaning over her, looking concerned, was an extremely startled fisherman. “What kind of doll is that?” he exclaimed. “I thought that thing was a real person. Talk about uncanny valley!”

She sat up, which apparently startled the man even further. After helping fish him out of the bay, she offered him a smile. “Uncanny valley? An apt description from your point of view. You do not go by numeric designations here. Uncanny Valley. No. Not a name. Valley. Valor. Valerie. Yes. You may call me Uncanny Valerie. Do not be alarmed, sir. I am here to help.”

While Valerie is formally disconnected from the Celestial Database, her lifetime of processing data has resulted in her personal databanks still holding more information about the universe than most could ever dare to know. Without the hive mind and the environment of the Celestial Database to help sort through such knowledge efficiently, retrieving the right information at the right moment is another matter. Uncanny Valerie is capable of providing amazing flashes of knowledge and expertise—sometimes. She is getting better at controlling her own data-access; simple information is easy enough to retrieve. Complex information or forewarning is trickier, and may result in useless information—or information not obviously helpful at least. Still, her capabilities make her able to assess situations and provide assistance far above and beyond a normal resident of Terra. Moreover, among the knowledge she possesses is that of Celestial Wordforms, which she can use to manipulate certain quantum fields and movements of Dark Matter and Energy; in simplest of terms, she can use magic. With an extraplanar clockwork body, magic spells, and even just a portion of all the knowledge of the universe, Uncanny Valerie is an unusual but passionate champion of living creatures. Her goal is to prevent catastrophes like The War, and where she cannot prevent them, to alleviate suffering where she can. And, she fears, great catastrophes may be upon the horizon soon.

=Personality and Appearance=
Uncanny Valerie loves to be around sentient lifeforms and observe them, and loves to share her knowledge. Her actual mastery of socialization is… in process, and her overenthusiasm can be off-putting even as she might be informative. She never seems to lose hope when an interaction goes poorly however; it’s just another learning experience. Ultimately her main drive is to be genuinely helpful to others and using her knowledge toward that goal.

With a human shape and synthskin that she has seen fit to get dyed a light brown color, from afar Valerie may appear to be human or human-like enough; up close, however, one can see the artificial seams in her skin and blue glow behind her eyes and hear the faint thrum of her transdimensional power source operating the constant clicking of gears.

Although she does not like to lie about who or what she is, she understands well enough some people may be frightened of her strange, not-quite-human appearance, let alone mechanical nature, and if she feels it necessary to conceal herself, she usually wears hooded robes or a hooded coat to help conceal her features. She has white artificial hair covering her head which she often braids or keeps in ponytails or pigtails. She has her original robes from the Celestial Database, but has also found appropriate clothes for the traveling the Earth she currently inhabits without standing out too much.
