Lore was a Soong-type android constructed by Dr. Noonien Soong circa 2335. While the most successful of Soong's androids to date, Lore exhibited antisocial tendencies which forced Soong to deactivate and disassemble him. Tragically, Lore was first able to contact a Crystalline Entity, which destroyed all organic life on Omicron Theta. Another aspect of his programming was his enabled speech to use contractions in grammar. Self-described as "perfect", Lore saw the colonists as envious and unable to grasp his "human qualities". Which were at one time ignored as "wild promises", made by Dr. Soong.

Lore was rediscovered in 2364 by the crew of USS Enterprise-D. Chief engineer Argyle and Dr. Beverly Crusher reassembled and reactivated the android, who then attempted to steal Data's identity and to summon Crystalline Entity to the Enterprise. One noticeable malfunction upon re-activation was a persistent twitch he corrected using the side of Data's face. In Data's quarters, he privately asked him to consider the implications. Their Asimov-inspired technology "could reflect 1000s, or millions... of lifeforms of every kind". He was stopped by Data, who beamed Lore out into space. (TNG episode: "Datalore")

While in the void of space, Lore deactivated himself, fusing the matrix in his positronic brain. A version of Data from the 44th century, who has taken control of a Pakled vessel, eventually discovers Lore's body. Exchanging clothing with Lore, the alternate Data vaporized the body in front of the Pakleds in an elaborate ruse to take over Lore's place and prevent the rise of the Children of Soong. (TNG short story: "I Am Become Death")

"Lore," originally Data, was an alternate of Data from the 44th century who claimed to be the original Lore on several occassions against the USS Enterprise-D. His ultimate goal was to discredit Soong-type androids. (TNG short story: "I Am Become Death")

Specifications

At some point over the centuries, Lore had improved himself with various new internal devices. This includes a subspace beacon for initiating transport, when standard combadges were unavailable to lock on. (TNG episode: "Brothers") It could also function as a transmitter link between himself and any other Soong-type android. (TNG episode: "Descent")

Biography

As Data

Lore's history separates itself from Data's in 2367, when Data hijacked the USS Enterprise-D under control of Noonien Soong. With the original Lore dead, these events led to Data receiving his emotion chip and the death of Willie Potts.

After many years of loyal service, Data left starship duty to become an academic. Over the next few centuries, the deaths of his close friends (Jean-Luc Picard, Deanna Troi, Worf), his wife Tana, and many other crewmates and friends overwhelmed Data's emotion chip to the point that he routinely turned it off.

Eventually, he removed his emotion chip, only to discover after many more centuies that he grew emotions independent of the chip. Discovering he was now nearly Human, Data began to despise humanity and retired to Omicron Theta to live amongst the Children of Soong.

Beginning in the 32nd century, Data was kept under the watchful eye of Jaris on Omicron Theta. He escaped in the 44th century to commit suicide at the old Starfleet Headquarters, but was prevented by versions of Jaris and Damia from the 54th century.

In his brief encounter with Jaris and Damia, Data learned of humanity's fate and, after disposing of the two androids and losing an arm in the battle, used their timeship to travel to the year 24th century and revive Lore. Data believed that the continued existence of Lore would prevent the birth of the Children of Soong and the death of humanity.

Arriving in 2364, Data immediately took control of a Pakled ship and ordered them to search for Lore's body, helping them out along the way. After two years, the Pakled's discover Lore's body and bring it onboard. When Data discovers that the original Lore is destroyed beyond repair he develops a ruse where he convinces the Pakleds that he was Lore and he "killed" Data. He replaced his destroyed arm and loyally served with the Pakleds as "Lore." (TNG short story: "I Am Become Death")

As Lore

In 2367, Lore answered the homing signal intended to draw Data to Soong's new laboratory on Terlina III. There, Lore posed as Data, took the emotion chip Soong had designed for his brother, and fatally injured the doctor. (TNG episode: "Brothers")

In 2369, Lore encountered a group of Borg disconnected from the Collective as a result of Hugh's sense of individuality. Lore established himself as their leader, ("the One", as he was referred to. Unbeknownst that the Collective heirarchy was composed of myriad Borg Queens), and directed them to attack Federation targets. This brought the Enterprise and Data to investigate, and Lore attempted to manipulate his brother by broadcasting emotions from the stolen chip. Data, with the help of Geordi La Forge, was able to overcome this influence, and then to shoot and deactivate Lore. (TNG episode & novelization: Descent)

The world of Norrath is a rich tapestry, woven of many threads. If the weft is adventure, surely the warp is the abundance of legends and lore. In this place we pluck on some of the more brightly colored threads, looking always for a good yarn. --Florence Sopher of Lucan D'Lere

Final Fantasy

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Lore is Strago Magus's ability in the game Final Fantasy VI. It is the game's form of Blue Magic. Strago learns different Lores by seeing an enemy use the ability and by surviving the battle. Unlike in other games, he does not have to be hit with the spell to learn it. He just has to "see" it be cast and as such, he can not learn a Lore when he is under the Blind status. All Lores are magical. It should also be noted that if Gau has acquired a Rage which includes an attack that Strago can learn as a Lore, the attack can be learned through Gau's rage rather than an enemy's attack.

List of Lores

There are a few things to note about this list:

  1. There are enemies that use these attacks that don't appear in these lists. However, Strago can't normally fight these enemies, so they can't teach him the Lores.
  2. These enemies don't necessarily use the Lores in their normal attack script. Sometimes the Lores will only show up in their Rage, Sketch, Control, or Muddled scripts. Check the individual enemy pages to find out if they appear in these other scripts.
