Isaac-039 is a SPARTAN-II supersoldier and a minor character in the Halo universe. He was a friend of Vinh-030.

Contents

Early Childhood

Isaac was conscripted with 74 other children into the Spartan-II program in 2517. He was abducted from his home and replaced with a Flash Clone. He was taken to Reach where he was trained with the rest of his fellow candidates by Déjà and Chief Petty Officer Franklin Mendez.

Reach

Main article: Reach

During the latter Battle of Reach in 2552 he was assigned to Red Team, under the command of Frederic-104. They were assigned to defend the generators, on the planet surface for the orbital MAC guns. As they descended, their Pelican, Bravo 001, was hit and the Spartans were forced to jump from the crashing vessel. Isaac was wounded, suffering two dislocated arms which hampered his fighting ability severely.[1]

He was then assigned to Delta Team by Fred, under charge of Will-043, to secure the fallback position for the Spartans in CASTLE Base. Vinh, Will, and Isaac were separated from the remaining members of Charlie Company, but arrived at CASTLE Base later.[2] They were unable to enter the facility until Fred and Kelly met up with them and Kelly whispered Oly Oly Oxen Free into the entry speakerbox.[3] Dr. Catherine Halsey then opened the door for them. Isaac was treated by Dr. Halsey and sent to survey perimeter defenses for the facility, along with Vinh. This proved unnecessary however, as the Covenant attacked immediately.

Disappearance

Vinh, Isaac, Fred, Kelly, Will, and Dr. Halsey were trapped under CASTLE Base on Reach for several days after Halsey initiated and activated Operation: WHITE GLOVE to destroy the base and keep it from falling into enemy hands. Isaac was able to upgrade his MJOLNIR Armor with parts salvaged from the base. He received a new image-enhancing computer that was in the process of being field-tested and had yet to be certified. After Fred discovered a massive room containing the Forerunner Crystal, it sent a massive radiation spike that allowed the Covenant to triangulate on the group's position. [4]A Covenant Gravity Lift quickly appeared, and Vinh and Isaac were ordered to take their six. Vinh and Isaac dropped back and opened fire until the group retreated and made for a nearby tunnel, as Vinh and Isaac dropped Satchel Charges to cover the Spartan's tracks. The Charges detonated, but Vinh and Isaac disappeared. They could not be raised on the COM. Isaac was listed as MIA, but is presumed KIA.

[[:Category:{{{Images}}}|Images]]

Isaac of Uluru is a faith healer who lives in the Australian outback near "Uluru", which is a very large stone monolith in central Australia.

Isaac has a room decorated with canes, walkers and wheelchairs, apparently belonging to people whom he has healed. He also has a wall filled with pictures, postcards and thank you letters from his former clients. One of the recurring images on two cards on the wall is a Buddhist symbol called the dharmacakra. Isaac claims that his home is above a geological "place of power" and that he uses it to heal.

Bernard brought Rose to Isaac to be healed from cancer and donated $10,000 dollars for the purpose. He failed to heal Rose, saying that she needed a different type of place, and he didn't know where that was. Isaac offered to repay Bernard's money, but Rose declined this offer, telling him she wanted to tell Bernard that she was successfully healed. ("S.O.S.")

Tabloid article text

Article about Isaac in the tabloid The National Flash ("S.O.S.")

Bernard showed Rose an article about Isaac in the tabloid The National Flash:

"Australian based spiritual healer Isaac of Uluru has been helping to ease pain and to restore people's health as a spiritual healer and masseur for more than 25 years. Born in 1949, Isaac has been in demand for many years for the remarkable results he has achieved in helping people recover from injuries, health issues, emotional issues, and so called incurable physical and mental diseases.
Isaac's Healing Powers
Spiritual Healing is effected by the act of attuning to the Life Force Energy, by meditation or prayer, so this energy can be channeled via the agency of a trained Spiritual Healer to any person, place, situation or life form, whether present or not via contact by the Hands or by projection of Loving Thoughts in order to have a beneficial effect on the whole, at all levels of Being.
Distinctions of race, class, gender, custom belief, philosophy or religions are irrelevant; no affirmation of religious faith is required. Spiritual Healing may be given to any person, place, situation or life form; for any illness, injury, problem or circumstance, at any time."

Mythology of Uluru

There are many myths pertaining to Uluru and the mysterious formation of the giant monolith. One myth recounts that two tribes of ancestral spirits were invited to a feast, but were distracted by a beautiful Sleepy Lizard Woman and did not show up. In response, the angry hosts sang evil into a mud sculpture that came to life as the dingo. There followed a great battle, which ended in the deaths of the leaders of both tribes. The earth itself rose up in grief at the bloodshed, becoming Uluru.

It is also often stated that those who take rocks from the formation will be cursed and suffer misfortune. This is because spirits of people who have died on or around Uluru are believed to be bound to the area forever, and stealing from Uluru disturbs their death.

Every year hundreds of tourists who have visited Uluru and stolen rocks from the site send the rocks back believing they have been cursed. [source needed]

Trivia

  • "Uluru" is the traditional Aboriginal name for the rock and is now the nationally accepted name, whereas previously it was known as "Ayers Rock".
  • Isaac shares his name with the antagonistic "seer" in Stephen King's Children of the Corn.
  • Isaac also shares his first name with the prophetic painter Isaac Mendez from the TV show Heroes. In that show, Isaac's comic book 9th Wonders! features a large rock creature known as Uluru.
  • Ben tells Juliet that Jacob could cure her sister of cancer, much like what Bernard expected Isaac to do for Rose.
  • In the Bible, Isaac is Jacob's father.
  • Along with Mathias, Isaac is one of the few characters to have never met any of the main characters on screen.

(Redirected to Isaac Sumdac article)

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Isaac Sumdac is a human from the Transformers Animated continuity family.
For building so much, he has very tiny arms.

What Henry Ford and Bill Gates were to the 20th century, Isaac Sumdac is to the 22nd. His invention of versatile reliable automaton robots revolutionized every industry and the American way of life, and turned Detroit into a major manufacturing center once again. The founder of Sumdac Systems, he is also the father of Sari. He probably won't be winning any parenting awards soon, considering he leaves the raising of Sari to robots, seemingly neglects her for days while he works in his lab, and lets her stay overnight with a group of giant alien robots at an undisclosed location. Being a single parent isn't easy, but being a rich single parent should make it a little easier. It's worth mentioning, however, that for all his faults, Isaac is a very devoted father, as shown by his concerns towards Sari's safety, the elaborate birthday presents he crafts for her, and his attempts to help her make friends (even if this does involve press-ganging the children of his employees into service). He just gets so wrapped up in his work that it's hard to remember that there is a world outside his lab.

He seems to think big, psychotic, robot dinosaurs would be a good thing to have around. Some would agree. Despite this, he has a code of ethics that results in Sumdac Systems having a zero-military-hardware policy, though they are willing to develop drone cop-bots for the Police Department. Isaac cares enough about the common good that when over-zealous employee Henry Masterson developed an obsession with war-bots and endangered the safety of Detroit in the process, Isaac had no hesitation in firing Masterson on the spot.

Perhaps stereotypically for an engineering genius, some of Isaac's personal skills are underdeveloped. He doesn't even know the extent of his own corporate holdings; he often seems blissfully unaware of the goings-on in Sari's life; he forgets to eat for days at a time; and he is quite gullible—just ask his good friend, the former Autobot head in his lab.

I should be more careful when reverse-engineering alien technology.

"Astonished gasp!"

As a youth, Sumdac found Megatron's head after it crashed on Earth and reverse-engineered it. It is from this that he gained all of the technology he used to build his robots. He was (understandably) terrified that the Autobots, not to mention the world at large, might find out what launched his robotics empire. Transform and Roll Out!

Sumdac was shocked to find Megatron still functioned. He confirmed that the robot was indeed an old friend of the Autobots, but bore no grudge. Megatron even suggested the Autobots would be more forgiving of Isaac dissecting him if the scientist gave him a new body before revealing the truth. As a sign of good faith, Megatron helped Sumdac rebuild his robot dinosaurs. Unfortunately, a glitch made them rampage twice, and Isaac felt annoyed at the bad job he'd done. However, Megatron took the blame upon himself and was ashamed that he'd built weapons into the dinosaurs out of his desire to have a body again. Sumdac sympathized with his friend, promising not to tell the Autobots and to restore him one day. Blast from the Past

Isaac briefly attempted to rebuild Megatron, but his modifications were unworkable due to lack of a critically needed element. It just so happened that Sumdac Systems' product line also included a prototype reflex-augmentation suit; when the only working model was mysteriously stolen and the thief then used it to try to retrieve the critical element Megatron desperately wanted, Isaac found that confusing but seemed otherwise untroubled. Nanosec

For Sari's birthday party, he tried to get some kids her own age (all children of his employees) to hang around with her, but even with the help of the Autobots, this did not really work. Luckily, she was happy with her new present, Soundwave, a musical robot that had been created by Megatron simply to please children. (It turned evil, but surely that was all an accident on Megs's part!) Isaac appears to design and make special robots for many of Sari's birthdays, each trying to be better than the last, though as he sadly notes to Megatron, she seems to forget them quite quickly. Sound and Fury

"Total OWNAGE, n00b!"

After meeting with Henry Masterson, who showed Sumdac the "Headmaster unit", he was horrified to discover that Masterson planned to use the technology for military purposes. Things got even worse when the rocket that Masterson's warbot controlled went flying into the city of Detroit. Furious, Sumdac fired Masterson on the spot. Several days later, Masterson stole the Autobot Bulkhead's body and used it to take control of a solar fusion power plant, demanding 700 billion dollars to be delivered by Sumdac himself. Isaac drove Optimus Prime into the power plant with the other Autobots, allowing them to take on Masterson. While Sumdac tried to shut down the reactor, a stray missile from Masterson destroyed the controls. Fortunately, Bulkhead built a drone that managed to shut down the reactor. Headmaster

Dad! Don't touch it! It's evil!

After discovering an energy signature out in the woods near Detroit, he found it was what he had been searching for since he came across Megatron's head: the rest of his body. Sumdac noted that Megatron would be most surprised by the discovery. Nature Calls

DO NOT WANT

As soon as he brought back Megatron's body, he commented on how his body had done well in the wilderness for 50 years. As soon as Sumdac apparently finished the body's repairs, Lugnut and Blitzwing arrived, and Megatron revealed that he was a Decepticon. Depositing Sumdac in his severed hand, Megatron used the Key to restore his body. As wires pulled the hand to the body, it made a fist around Sumdac, taking him with it. When Megatron opened his hand upon being restored, Sumdac was nowhere to be seen. Megatron Rising - Part 1

Somehow free from Megatron's grasp, Sumdac tried to escape. Blitzwing intercepted his escape, but Megatron's calling of the Decepticons allowed him to flee. Meeting the Autobots in the lobby of Sumdac Tower, Isaac explained his role in what had happened. Prowl and Bulkhead were a little ticked, but Optimus decided that then was not the time for recriminations. Repairing the Autobots with residual Key energy, Isaac accompanied them on the Autobots' ship when they crashed on Dinobot Island. Fearing that the end was near, Sumdac said that there was something important that he wanted to tell Sari, but she ran off to find something that the AllSpark could charge in place of her Key before he could elaborate. Sumdac quickly assembled a device that damaged Megatron's equilibrium sensors, but disappeared in the chaos during the battle between Optimus and Megatron and the dispersal of the AllSpark.

My next chair should have more iron and less irony.

In the aftermath, Sumdac had been snatched by Megatron. The Decepticon leader mockingly asked his prisoner if Sumdac was comfortable in his chair. Megatron Rising - Part 2

Professor Sumdac was held prisoner by the Decepticons deep in a cavern studded in carbon deposits which baffled the Autobot scans of the area. Shown a space bridge schematic which Megatron had stolen from Teletran 1, the scientist was put to work doing what he does best, reverse-engineering the technology. The Elite Guard

When Megatron recieved a message by a fellow double agent on Cybertron, Professor Sumdac secretly patched the call to Autobot HQ. Little did he know how much help it would do when Bumblebee suspected that it was his old classmate Wasp who was the double agent. Autoboot Camp

Once the bridge was completed, it was learned that Sumdac had misinterpreted the schematics, leaving the Decepticons with a non-functional bridge. Megatron decided to kidnap Cybertron's top space bridge technician, who turned out to be Bulkhead. Megatron took Sumdac with him both as a hostage and to prevent Sumdac from interfering with the Constructicons' work. Bulkhead was captured and compelled to help under threat of being body-jacked again with a Headmaster unit. Once Bulkhead was put to work, Sumdac assumed that he was trying to sabotage the bridge and played along. However, Bulkhead actually was trying to fix the bridge and managed to finish it in short order...just in time for a rescue attempt by the Autobots to be hijacked by an attack by Starscream and his clones. A Bridge Too Close, Part I

After trying to shut down the bridge, Sumdac commandeered the Headmaster and used it to steal Starscream's body to try and destroy Megatron. The Decepticon leader was unimpressed and shot the Headmaster off with his fusion cannon. Then power complications with the space bridge arose, and Megatron tried to fix that by adding Starscream's AllSpark-infused head to the mix, causing an overload. Fortunately, Omega Supreme arrived, being piloted by Ratchet and Sari of all people. Omega sacrificed himself after ejecting Sari and Ratchet, and the Autobots and Sumdacs escaped before the mine came down around them when the space bridge exploded. Free of Megatron and reunited with his daughter, Isaac Sumdac was relieved to know that the ordeal was at an end.

His troubles weren't over, though, as Sari noticed that the skin of her right arm had been torn...revealing robotic circuitry underneath! Faced with a daughter on the verge of a breakdown and five robots who had run out of reasons to trust him, Isaac told Sari that they needed to talk... A Bridge Too Close, Part II

It turned out to be difficult to explain about how Sari was a robot (later discovered to be a Cybertronian protoform) that he had mysteriously found in his lab years ago. Sari soon developed a barrier between her and her father, angry that he kept the truth from her all this time. In the end, Sari made up with him again after putting his life at stake when he protected her from being killed by the Headmaster (and also saving his life in the process). After the incident of Sari's upgrade, Optimus revealed the coordinates of the Autobot base to him (much to the displeasure of the his teammates), claiming that "there will be no more secrets in this family". TransWarped

Later, he and Bulkhead start constructing a space bridge in order to contact Cybertron about Shockwave. As he drove his forklift to move some building materials, the weight of the forklift and Bulkhead's body made a hole in the floor, while his vehicle fell as well as the Headmaster unit and the AllSpark fragments they had recently collected. After Bulkhead saved him from falling to his death with his wrecking ball, the save had pulled out his back and decided to rest on Sari's bed. He was about to get slagged by the new boss of the town after discovering that Bulkhead had recruited Mixmaster and Scrapper to help repair the broken structure, but luckily Bulkhead pretended to be aggressive against him to save his life. Three's A Crowd

Man, why does everyone produce dummies today.

Isaac was annoyed to see that Powel had stolen his Soundwave toy designs and was selling his invention on the open market. He later gives Sari a transforming jetpack for Christmas, along with a Soundwave toy (which he dances along with upon opening it, much to Sari's dismay). Human Error, Part I

Issac was one of the humans to be hypnotized by Soundwave as he was ordered to destroy Sari, due to that her technorganic form was immune to his mind-controlling music. Knowing she didn't want to hurt her father, Sari blasted down a bookcase to immobilize him while she made her escape to find help to stop Soundwave's control of the city. After Soundwave was destroyed by Optimus Prime, Issac witnesses Powel's defeat as his sales backfired on him due to that the Soundwave toys were all destroyed from the cancellation of Soundwave's frequency over them. Revenge has never been so sweet... Human Error, Part II

Timelines

Voice actor: Marty Isenberg (English)

Despite having a cold, Pr. Sumdac was in an unusually good mood and "remembered to wear pants" the morning he showed Sari, Bumblebee, and Optimus his new Bi-directional Unified Transit Terminal, but no doubt lost his good mood when his BUTT backfired with such power that it flung Sari, Bumblebee, and Optimus into Axiom Nexus. Bee in the City

Trivia

... a POUCH? On my GLOVE? BRILLIANT! If I ever remembered to eat, I could keep a sandwich there!
  • It is probably no coincidence that "Sumdac" is 'Cadmus' spelled backwards. However, story editor Marty Isenberg at BotCon 2008 said he had no idea why it is not a coincidence, as it was in the show development before he signed on.
  • A non-finalized character model of Isaac Sumdac was featured in Cartoon Network's Transformers Animated press kit. Compared to the final model, his body's proportions are entirely different, as is his hair. He also had some kind of stylized "S" emblem on his lab jacket, where the finalized Sumdac has a name badge. The "S" appears to be in his hair now.
  • He used Megatron's hand as a chair. Bearings of steel on this one. Until it ultimately backfired on him. (And will haunt him for the rest of his life.)
  • Despite the obvious manipulation going on, Sumdac's "working relationship" with Megatron had become surprisingly casual just prior to the intergalactic despot dropping the charade and raining destruction upon Detroit.
  • He has an Indian accent in the English language version and a Chinese accent in the German dub.
  • For unknown reasons, he appears to be wearing the uniform of the Galactic Empire.
  • It was revealed that Sumdac got the "S" streak of hair when touching Sari's protoform. TransWarped
  • Despite Sari now revealed as starting out as a Cybertronian protoform, Sumdac is still technically her biological father due to his DNA being the thing that brings her 'online'.
