Interesting. Either the Drode is still really in control of the Crayak and just playing the glorified assistant role, or something happens and the Drode goes from being the Crayak's master to doing its bitchwork.
There is much that is beyond the Ellimist . . . he just won't admit it.
Check out my fanfic series, Novamorphs. It has the Animorphs' children fighting a second Yeerk invasion. First book: The Infestation.Second book: The Search.

Wait is this and Drodegasm cannon with the Neomorphs.
I <3 the Animorphs

I just had a AFF moment. My friends and I were talking about people who use others and I say:
"yeah it's like when someone only makes 5 posts then leaves and never comes back."
No one knew what I was talking about...

Drodegasm is not. That's just for sillieness. However, all the information and such you read in this story will be canon with the rest of Neomorphs.

here's a typo you have
kal[/i] cannons
so The One created Crayak?? well that's an ironic twist of fate that means Crayak was banished by his own ""father" intresting.

Thanks for pointing out the typo. It's fixed now.

I thought long and hard about Crayak's origins. I decided that I'd explain them in this story, since after this there wouldn't be all that much more to tell about Crayak and the Drode. When I hit upon the idea of Crayak being a machine, I needed to think of someone or something that could have created him. I had several ideas. Here are some rejected ones:

1.) A very powerful and advanced "creator race", the first race in the universe. After creating the Crayak, they were destroyed by i.
I decided against this one because it just seemed too simple, and didn't really tie in with the rest of the Animorphs universe in any way.

2.) After he gained the powers over time and space that he gets in the ElliChron (and in this story, since I'm going to be telling the Drode's POV of his game with the Ellimist), he reached back through time and created himself.
I decided against this one because it leads to some very confusing time-paradox discussions.

3.) The Ai created the Crayak to help them conquer the galaxy. However...well...
Yeah, I couldn't find a good way to solidify that with the rest of th story.

So in the end, I decided that there was only one being in this series with the power and knowledge to create something like the Crayak: The One (a.k.a. Azmaveth). After I decided upon that, the rest flowed naturally. The idea for the Crayak's mission being to seek the perfect race comes from statements the Ellimist made about in him book 26, calling him a perfectionist of sorts. I thought this gave a pretty good reason why he's so obsessed with perfection.

I did a lot of research for this one. I hunted down every reference I could find about Crayak and the Drode, and I think I'm going to tie everything together nicely.

This is great. I actually hated the Drode as a useless character who was never really developed- but this is fascinating.

Hopefully there's an update sometime soon. Please?

Working on it. This story is definitely getting continued, as soon as I have the leisure. There's a lot going on in my life just now, but things'll calm down very soon. Then its back to writing.
