Eight is the specialized intelligence gathering unit designated a Watcher, designed from a modified T-90[1] chassis by Clea Bennet and Alissa. Produced in their Montana Secret Terminator Lab and using one of the other Terminators to execute the harder physical labor, the limb matrices for the endoskeleton were shortened, additional melanin and a greater distribution of body hair was incorporated into the living tissue development formula, resulting in a cyborg with the appearance of a squat Turkish wrestler, a radical departure from the baseline Model 101 configuration.


Mission Priority: Remain undetected.

  • If the opportunity presents itself, Terminate.
  • Creation of infiltration opportunity required, employee Termination authorized.

Dr. Silberman: (catching Watcher in his office) What are you doing here?
Watcher: I am the new janitor. (presents featherduster as proof)
