Saturn (MMX:U49) by IrregularSaturn Saturn (MMX:U49) by IrregularSaturn
This artwork is the last of the several drawings for Mega Man X: Unit 49's Season 2 I'm publishing this week.

Several details of his backstory have been omitted to prevent spoilers. You can read his backstory in-depth beginning on MMX:U49 Season 2 Chapter 4.

Born as RD217900-6, a laboratory assistant meant to have no personality, Saturn (pronounced as Satān) had a defect in his cognitive circuit, allowing him to break free from that restraint. Saturn gradually developed a contentious behavior towards his superiors and even the world he lived in, resulting in an unceasing will to learn all the things about the nature, history and technology. He caught the attention of the director from the Research and Development of Reploids Bureau and was teached and promoted to become a researcher. After analyzing Zero's incomparable power, Saturn started a project to create a Reploid of his own, a being that would be endlessly upgraded towards perfection and serve as a paragon to all the Reploids. However, Saturn's ambition led him to fail many times, since the Reploid he wanted to create, Paragos, required a large amount of energy to work. Years after, Saturn discovered the secrets of the RaDoRB and pledged vengeance against them. After fighting the security and killing his superiors, Saturn was almost destroyed. His last hope was in his old colleague, Henry Snacman, who had discovered a mineral that could serve as the missing reactor for Paragos. The two fought and Saturn had to flee empty-handed in the end. After this, he fled to other country and started to make new experiments and War Machines, always testing them in government buildings. Eventually, Saturn was caught alone and seemingly murdered and dropped from an abyss by the 49th Unit of Maverick Hunters. When he was in the verge of death, Saturn got a new chance to live.

With a new body and a mysterious power embbed, Saturn began once again his plans, and this time he would not fail. He used all his knowledge to sell weaponry for dangerous criminals and get resources for his projects, and waited Sigma's "definitive" death to start his conspiration against the Maverick Hunters and Earth's Government. The reason his army is called Neo Maverick Army is because it is a kind of schism with the previous organized Maverick Forces - this time not with the objective of ruling the world or being loyal to a virus. The Neo Maverick Army seeks to unite all the Mavericks-at-will for a common cause, accepting that each one has different ideals, just to overthrow the government and grant true freedom to all Reploids from mankind. After that, each one should follow their own path.
