Gorbon's tale begins as Huginn, Bringer of Thought. It was once his job to travel Midgard each day and deliver news of the world's hopes and dreams and nightmares to Odin's left ear. As he travelled the earth, he could see not just what was, but what was within. Huginn's sight saw the souls of each and every Midgardian, young and old and everyone in between.
As such, Huginn's head was always in the clouds. Always thinking of what can be rather than what is. Huginn is not just the Bringer of Thought but the Bringer of Dreams and Imagination and Creativity. He was a living tale of all that Midgard could become.
Over many millennia, as the humans evolved past their reliance on the Gods, they needed less and less of Odin's grace to fulfill their dreams, as they were learning quite quickly how to do these things on their own. While an exciting time indeed, their sudden advance in progress came so quickly that Midgard couldn't keep up and is now dying.
As the Bringer of Thought, Huginn's worth to Odin's ear was forced to evolve, as his unique abilities would be more necessary to others in the coming days. This is where Huginn becomes Gorbon.
As Odin's plan to flick the switch to Midgard's next step in evolution approaches, Huginn is sent with his pal Muninn to Nidavellir, where the Dwarves will craft him anew. Transformed from bird to bot, Gorbon is born as a foot-tall robot and sent to Midgard to find the newly evolved and teach them to use their powers to save Midgard. With Gorbon's power of dreams, he is a crucial stepping stone to finding Midgard's tomorrow.
