The Love Bursts Energy Drink Co. was founded in 1985, North Dakota, USA. The locals saw it as just a regular energy drink company, but what they couldn't see was that is was a front for an alien invasion that required time and preparation.
The alien race known as the Kyrant were on Earth for many years, planning a way to control the planet as well as it's total population. Their plan was to find a way to infiltrate Earth's many nations and find a way to infect everyone with a virus that causes people to become indestructible, feral, monstrous beings that can be controlled to fight the many wars for the Kyrant in their never ending conquest in the universe.
The only problem was, how would they be able to pull it off? They have tried in secret for generations, throughout the ancient times. Once in a while they have a random earthling infected with their formulas. But the leader of the Kyrant wanted a faster solution. Produce super soldiers on a large scale and make Earth their first victim of their massive wars. They were never able to this though without causing the earthlings to rebel and ruin their plans. So instead of risking exposure they chose to find a quick and fast, though silent, way of controlling Earth. Then the 1980's started.
It was the time of the Soviet Union suffering a collapse. During the 80's leaders of the Soviet Union were dying, the economy was struggling and the people were protesting for change. At least that's what the simulations told the Kyrant. The Kyrant became confident that Russia's communism would fall and America's capitalism would rise. This was the opportunity that some in the Kyrant government were hoping for. The Kyrant once considered using profits form companies to create their methods of taking over Earth, but they were cautions in fear that Russia would win the Cold War. And if Russia won, it would've made things difficult for them to execute their plans. While some of earth cheered for the downfall of communism and others were grieving for the loss of communism in Russia, the Kyrant didn't care. They just wanted the most effective solution to their problems. And a corporation that helps fund science teams and workers from the population.
The Kyrant, believing in the simulations of the Soviet Downfall, decided to go with an energy drink company. In the 80's, energy drinks were something not quite...explored well enough. So they opened it in a small town in the state of North Dakota. Now...the reasons for employing earthlings in their company was so they could find it easier to locate potential candidates for their formulas. The "Employers" would gather information on the individuals who wanted jobs. After they would find the perfect subject and shoot them up with the formula making them into monsters. Only one little problem. The recruits and workers were all robots.
Apparently they were all robot soldiers constructed by the U.S Army to fight wars in the Cold War. When there wasn't much of a war going on anymore, the robots were scheduled to be deconstructed and destroyed. They all escaped the military base they were trapped in and made way for the nearby Love Bursts Energy Corporation building. The Kyrants that worked at the facility allowed the robots to stay as long as they wanted to. In return they would work at the facility, making energy drinks, strengthening the building and in some cases, construct new ones. And it was a match made in heaven for both the robots and the Kyrant.
At first the Kyrant government hated the idea of letting earthlings work at a secret manufacturing facility that also housed their growth formulas. Until the management of Love Bursts convinced the Kyrant government that the robots were perfect for any job that they needed. Robots don't really get tired, plus they have proven themselves loyal. Although the management seemed to only be professional and focusing only on progressing their plans. The management and other Kyrant workers at LB felt sorry for the robots. They were used to fight in a war they didn't understand. Then when they were no longer "useful" the US government ordered them to be eradicated. And if that wasn't bad enough, other companies weren't hiring robots. Apparently they believe that the robots would only "take all of their jobs" so the robots were subjected to hate crimes and all sorts of hatred. The Kyrant at LB knew they could trust them.
As the years passed, Love Bursts expanded and strengthened their hold on the facilities. They created a mercenary group disguised as the security. The robots were still very happy, and even more when they were repaired and given upgrades. The Kyrant decided to put their plans on hold however. As they wanted to wait until they had a facility planted everywhere on the planet before executing their "true" invasion. Everything was going great until one robot started getting ideas of her own, Doctor Penelope.
Not much is known about this mysterious robot scientist as her files have been kept secret from...well...everyone. She told earth's governments all about the Kyrant and their plans. This caused a massive war which resulted in the Kyrant getting ousted from Love Bursts and resulting in the alien race vanishing from everyone's radar. And because of all this, Doctor Penelope now owns and controls the Love Bursts Energy Corporation. Without question.
She started expanding her science teams for LB. Including organic beings as a result, 75% of LB employment are now artificial intelligence. And the rest of that percentage is organic workers who seem to know what Penelope is up to, but that's why their working with her.
As of now, Penelope uses the corporation to fund her science projects. Selling regular energy drinks to their customers, while giving the "special" ones the growth formula laced ones. The formula she calls the "Titan" formula.
Who knows what her endgame is, and what she'll do to get it...
