The Protomen were conceived in 1987. When a diminutive Mississippi child was given a gift for his kindergarten graduation -- a small grey cartridge with a rather misrepresentative cover art. At that moment six other children of varied statures and geographic locales were also given these cartridges and thus their grooming began. Sixteen years later in the middle of the state of the volunteers and under the tutelage of Doug Mitchell their paths converged. Their fates were made known and their assembly was made complete.
