C890.L terminating targets

C890.L is one of three Series 800 terminators activated by I825.M in response to an incursion by the Resistance cell led by Colonel Mary Randall into a fully functional Skynet network complex 6 months after John Connor destroyed the Master Control central node. Within this facility is an operational Time Displacement Chamber, greater in scope than the prototype discovered by John Connor. Originally slated for a 30-strong last-ditch time travel mission by the remains of Skynet to wrest victory from the jaws of defeat and secure the dominion of Skynet over the Timeline, human intervention caused these units to be activated and deployed early (they were the only units with complete living tissue infiltration sheaths). This unit's Model appears as a large, muscular Caucasian male with buzzcut blond hair. Operationally C890.L serves as the command unit for the temporal incursion.

These units terminated Stainor during the counterattack, and captured the technician, Lieutenant Koufaks before he could destroy the TDE. After C890.L supervised the interrogation of Koufaks, the Terminators elected to use him as a gun cabinet, and had I825.M open his belly to crudely insert a Plasma Pistol, then cauterize the wound shut.

The Terminators took Koufaks with them to the past with the partially repaired TDE. The damage he was able to inflict locked the target time coordinates for the unit. Upon arrival in the past, C890.L ripped the Plasma Pistol out of the poor lieutenant's body, terminating him.



  • Infiltration protocol: Locate and protect Cyberdyne Systems Project Leader for Project Bellerephon Dr. Bertram Hollister from all threats. Assist in his work in any way possible to ensure the creation of Skynet.

HC875.S: (upon arrival in 1984) "Has the I825.M unit been damaged?"
C890.L: "The I825.M has served in the field as a maintenance and intelligence agent. The clandestine nature of our new objective requires its experience and knowledge. Tissue repair is its primary function, not combat. It was not designed to withstand extreme stress."
