The Other RenegadeEdit
Cyrus. He's a complex individual. Once a friendly program, saving iconic and inspiring co-stars (I think you know who I'm talking about), who many thought he would only appear once. But little did we know, he became the first renegade! It seemed as if Tron had tamed Cyrus, but Cyrus was far from tamed, beneath his benevolent demeanor was a power-hungry, cold-hearted, and manipulative program who lacked any significant degree of compassion, and it was already very clear that there was something very, very strange about him. Cyrus's behavior was enough to know that he was not to be trusted. And when Tron confronted Cyrus about this, Cyrus revealed that he wasn't a program, he wasn't an ISO, and he wasn't even a virus, but some type of creature who had glowing lines all over him! Tron was able to subdue the monster and imprisoned it in compressed space, and Tron realized what a huge mistake he made by letting it become the renegade, Cyrus didn't care for the title, and even if it did, it loved it's job like a dragon loves it's gold, and a love fueled by greed is never a true commitment.
When I first saw "The Stranger", I had no idea who that mystery program was... the one with glowing lines on his face, who claimed he was the first Renegade, and was wanting to destroy his own universe just to "free" his fellow programs from their "suffering"... until I looked on the wiki to find out the truth about this strange creature. When I watched the episode "No Bounds", where I saw what the monster was truly capable of, I realized, "This guy's more dangerous than I thought! How the Grid could I had been so BLIND?! HE's no program... He's some kind of monster!".
