"Digital Occupation Guard System"

"DOGS-- fast, nimble, and dangerous, they track down and hold stray programs where Recognizers cannot get to.
They're non-discerning, barely sentient, and follow commands without hesitation.
DOGS are highly trainable in basic commands but very hard to deal with unless experienced, DOGS are not to be taken lightly.
Although they don't bite but then are strong and still strike fear into those they chase or pursue.
They're incredibly hard to get rid (off your trail) of and usually travel in packs tracking and hunting prey in numbers of around 4-8.
Everlasting in stamina and unbelievably stubborn, DOGS will pursue their prey or victim for as long as their programming will allow (which is a long-long-long-long-LONG time)."





-----------------------------------------
This would be the equivalent of a guard dog of the Grid.
I did change a few things from their original concept -- fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/f/201… such as all having the same light patterns and also having them be leaner in body as well. More Greyhound-Doberman like instead of bulkier.
ALSO the name got changed as well.

I could have nixed the background as it's obnoxious but eh, I spent too much time doing it to drop it so it get's tossed in there regardless. The concepts for these will eventually be put up individually but right now I'm too lazy and tired. :yawn:
-----------------------------------------

The basic design is simple, as with all TRON: Uprising styling.
It was meant to resemble a dog just as Programs resemble human beings, if only for the sake of it 'fitting in' fair enough with the show's general look.
They're not really 'dogs' though, their head is that helmet.
They don't have a mouth.
Their colors are that of CLU's faction as their loyalty is to CLU.
There are/were no known rebellious 'DOGS' in Uprising's timeline (so no, TRON or Beck wouldn't have one of these).
Nothing to do with 'Swedish House Mafia' :XD: It's just happenstance the similarities there, haha!

Thanks :) Haha it was interesting to try and do. I had an idea for something like this in mind for a long while since making these creatures, but I was too lazy or busy to try and get it down. It didn't turn out quite as I wanted but eh, it gave me a good heads up on some techniques I'll try to fine tune in time. 
Thanks again though :) Haha, I've done a few website designs in the past but they were really simple. Perhaps I will look into that if the opportunity comes about :)

Since Beck worked at Able's garage before he found out that the Original TRON was still alive couldn't of Beck rewrote one of the DOGS programs to where it listened to him or the TRON instead of CLU. That DOGS could come in handy if he ever was corned by a pack of D.O.G.S. and maybe that D.O.G.S. could stay with TRON since his body is still scared. And yes this ideal would be possible because Beck has done it before like as for example in Episode 0 Beck's Beginning he rewrote his disk to where his colors went black to where he made himself look like TRON. And he could also while maintaining his cover at Able's Garage where some of the Lightcycles that CLU's forces use are taken to be repaired the DOGS could receive repairs there as well. That while Beck is working on one of them he could slip a subprogram into that DOGS he's working on to where it would rewrite that DOGS' program to where it could obey his and TRON's commands.

Their programming cannot be overridden, at least not entirely. For a short time I suppose but eventually the code would be re-converted. 
Although it sounds all nice to have them be on the good guy's side by conversion tactics, D.O.G.S. are loyal to only CLU, no matter what. They're advanced in their programming despite being barely sentient programs. 
However, it should be said that CLU did not create them, someone like CLU did (hint hint) but they were swiftly re-purposed and code-washed to follow CLU, seeing as they can be useful, not to mention deadly if you're caught by one on the Grid alone without Disk fighting skills. 
It's a bit like TRON, despite being the good guy he still became Rinzler even though he fought the scars for as long as possible. CLU is like a virus, once it's in without the proper program to get it out of the system or the creator if the virus, it cannot be removed permanently. 

Key thing here is in order to actually try to convert a D.O.G.S. program you'd have to catch one and not be derezzed in the process. Second you'd have to break the coding that protects the initial guard program which would be near impossible unless you're TRON, and I doubt he'd waste his time with that kind of tedious process, not with trying to train the next TRON with Beck. Third, D.O.G.S. travel in packs, if one is compromised the others sense it and destroy it do the 'outbreak' won't spread. They're programmed to be apathetic to emotion and derezz or chase on command by specialty Black Guard members. 

So although it could be neat to see a converted D.O.G.S., it probably won't happen, haha!

I see where you're coming from but still the D.O.G.S. still need maintenance or repairs and because they work in a pack then they would all have to go in for repairs knowing that only one or two were damaged that would thus make it easy for Beck to gather date on them for TRON to the analyze the coding that protects the DOGS. 

And if enough date was gathered TRON could possible build one or if that not the case they could then infect the entire pack to where they're most venerable, with that being where they're all made. that the new DOGS start attacking their own, that over time their numbers would begin to dwindle to such a point that the DOGS would be used for guard duty instead of being sent out to hunt down TRON and Beck. 

But the only person who could rewrite the DOGS' program or even make a DOGS that would only be loyal to him or TRON would be Kevin Flynn himself. Yet anything is possible with TRON, Beck, and Flynn.

True, but again, this would require the D.O.G.S. needing maintenance which isn't something often needed. Also specialized care would be needed as these aren't 'machines' or tank programs but rather 'organic' programs similar to Beck and the others. It would be difficult to gather enough data before the guards are alerted though, since D.O.G.S. are a guard system, they're main modus oprandi is to guard specialty places from invasion or rebellion. They'll only chase if ordered to and even then, a handful of Black Guards would not be far behind them. 
It'd be hard to sneak in to the maintenance facility where these programs would be kept as they would alert the other guard programs as well, haha! 

He could, but he could also program something of the opposite to these as well, no doubt he'd know how to, or if anything Flynn would is they could find him. However, the back story with these involves Flynn himself. 
These dogs are specialty programs and aren't often used unless a seek and seize order is in effect, such as seeking out programs associated with TRON or the Renegade. These D.O.G.S. programs would be used to find those individuals quickly. Not to harm them unless ordered but to find and hold in place. 
Again, I doubt TRON would mind these programs unless they became an issue or a problem. In a way perhaps they will be a problem in the future, but for now they're not quite refined and although in use on the Grid they're always being upgraded and changed. Hence why their programming is difficult to trace, kind of like teaching a dog new tricks ;P They get smarter as they learn more. 

True once more. Flynn would be the only one who could create programs, CLU can only re-purpose them once they're incapacitated or damaged. The D.O.G.S. programs were once called by another name but their original creator, but after the few specimens there were were damaged by the Black Guard they have since been re-purposed and used under CLU's occupation (or rather, CLU2). 
Haha, this is once more truth. Anything is possible, it's a digital world, there's no limit. Not even the limitations of human imagination.

Yeah that is true with them being organic but if memory serves me correct but what about the ISOs for Kevin didn't create them, so their could be the off chance that one or more of the DOGS to where their original program somehow survived the re-purposing but stayed dormant until the right condition which would trigger the rebooting of the original DOGS' OS that would be to fast for the re-purposed DOGS to stop it that this reboot becomes some type of infection to only the DOGS that can spread to other DOGS. 

And I kinda caught the little hint that Flynn may of have had something to do with their creation before CLU2 re-purposed the DOGS

At this point I'd prefer if people waited. I'm still working out the concepts and kinks of the designs a bit.
