[A] Martronic

Martronic Anaromy Reference / Organ placement Reference


Concept Art

Martronic is the result of a man gone mad with grief and self loathing. After Dean (The owner of WW) lost his second son, 'Martin', he took his corpse to the basement and began to dissect his body parts and a combination of animatronic parts in an attempt to bring his son back to life. Dean's first thought was: he would either have to build a robot inside a corpse or attach a corpse onto a robot. Then the reanimation project began.



'The skin would simply have been cut away from the cadaver using a scalpel. Depending on the amount of decomposition and atmospheric conditions, this is a straightforward and simple operation. Skin decomposes and rots very quickly, so in most cases, removal would have taken place during autopsy.'There are two main methods of preservation: dry and wet. Dry preservation, which is most common in older specimens, needs you to scrape out the insides to remove connected tissue. After the skin has been scraped, it is stretched and pinned out to dry. It may be treated with many chemicals before or after this stage, or both. The skin shrinks as it dries, leaving a characteristic 'frilling' around the edges. With Wet preservation, the skin is removed in the same way, and it is kept in either glycerine or formalin alcohol. (Maybe some of Martins skin is still pinned to the wall to dry but it never got used)


You can use formalin to preserve organs, just clean off the organs and soak in formalin for a determined amount of time (a few months) the larger and denser the organ.. the longer you have to soak it. When they have finished soaking, you can pull them out to air-dry, sun-dry or borax-dry. You can do the same with alcohol, it needs longer to soak in the alcohol since it is not as potent of a solution. A small trick that helps with efficiency is to inject the organs with the solution before soaking. It helps to lower any risk of decomposition or rotting while it is soaking. You can also utilise salt and borax or even cornmeal for drying out organs, but if you do this.. the organs loose their plumpness, they will shrivel and darken in colour. If you live in a dry, hot desert-like place then you can sun dry the organs with a bit of salt or other curing solutions.


24-72 hours after death — the internal organs decompose.

3-5 days after death — the body starts to bloat and blood-containing foam leaks from the mouth and nose.

8-10 days after death — the body turns from green to red as the blood decomposes and the organs in the abdomen accumulate gas.

Several weeks after death — nails and teeth fall out.

1 month after death — the body starts to liquify.

Insects like a fresh corpse, one month generally turns it to bones, but can reduce a corpse to bones in a couple of days. Complete skeletonization takes about a year or more, it produces a disassembled body. The jaw falls away from the skull. The spine and rib cage disarticulate.

THE LOST VOICE Dean drove out in the late evening of the day to a near-by train station. He was searching for a boy, about Martin's age, to use as a voice bank for Martronic. A 14 year old boy named Kitch had ran away from home, he was now living under a near-by disused rail track bridge. Dean was on his way to the local town when he drove over the bridge leaving the industrial park, that's when he spotted Kitch.
