I know you don't remember me of course. This is actually our

ninth meeting! Can you believe it?

— Alphus to D-Co 9.

Alphus is one of the Derelicts of the Lun Infinus space station and is a character from The Desolate Hope.

He is the last of the Derelicts to remain faithful to the original mission. His simulation is focused on creating habitable and sustainable environ-domes that reach up from the surface and support a large variety of life.


Back alphus

Alphus's back

His head, face and body are geometrical with blue being his dominate colour. His eyes are two green squares with cross-hairs for pupils. He has two spiral cones on the side of his head and two light bulbs on top. Spiral cones also sit on his shoulders as well as varying shapes of metal wire. He has a rather neutral face that shows no specific emotions. The upper part of his body is composed of static TV screens, a meter with a moving needle and a few colored buttons. The lower half is decorated in coloured buttons, vents and four light bulbs similar to those appearing on his head. It seems that he is still able to move since he has four large wheels as feet.

Generally, he has an imposing appearance and appears to be the tallest Derelict of Lun Infinus.

His station in Lun Infinus

Alphus' room is predominantly blue and with colours reflecting a steel type look. Going along with his design, there are Television screens scattered in the room as well as buttons, meters and light bulbs similar to those on his body.

Various cables hang from the ceilings and walls as well as littering the floor. Two skylights are situated on the roof acting as the primary light source of the room.
