At long last, President
Sheridan finally had what he wanted - a fully functional, armed to the
teeth, warrior cyborg, who was capable of feeling emotions and thinking
like a human. However, before the unveiling of the Fulgore cyborg, it's
creator, Dr. Parkins, realized just how powerful his creation was, and
a strong mistrust of Sheridan's intentions began to develop. So,
instead of giving Sheridan the original Fulgore, as a test, a second, less
powerful one was hastily built. This cyborg became known as the original
Fulgore. Because adequate time wasn't spent in developing Fulgore's systems,
he was incredibly mentally unstable. Basically, he was a psychotic
killing machine, completely devoted to Ultratech and Sheridan's cause.
Fulgore was only a year old when he entered the Killer Instinct tournament and did incredibly well in the initial rounds. Sheridan was so confident
in Fulgore's abilities, that he began to start development of a Fulgore Mass
Production Unit. Fulgore eventually progressed to the championship round,
where he would fight against the Tibetan warrior Jago.
Thanks to his insufficient programming, Jago was able to hold his own,
but just as Fulgore was about to finish him off, Orchid
and some of the other KI fighters interfered. They managed to make
a temporary retreat from the cyborg, but intent on his latest target, he
later caught up with Jago while all hell broke loose at the end of the
tournament. Jago, having learned from his past experiences, was able
to defeat and kill Fulgore. Before he died, Fulgore programmed one
last directive into his programming, in the hopes that he would be reactivated
- find and kill Jago.
