Murrit Turkin, also known by his Skorpe handle, unclaspedKahuna, is one of the trolls in Vast Error. Her associated alchemic sigil is Lead and their horns are shaped like rods with flipped protrusions on the top. Upwards on the right and downwards on the left.
Murrit is based off of the "Incomprehensible Character Mess" fantroll archetype.
They were the fourth player to enter the game.
The word murrit, when translated from Basque, means 'die'. This may be a reference to his aspect, which is often associated with death. "Turkin" could be a reference to Valentin Turkin (1887-1958), a Russian screenwriter and critic. This can be loosely related to Murrit's interests in pop culture and recording her friends' lives to make wacky compilation movies.
In their youth, Murrit was a salesman who sold pieces of the Frog Temple near his hive for profit. Upon making a deal with White Noise to rebuild the temple and notify her group of friends after he finished, they were awakened on the moon of Derse where he was apprehended by a group of con men known as The Dead Shufflers and held hostage against the Black Queen. The game's Jack Noir, known as Scathing Sharper, took a liking to Murrit rather quickly and as such acted as a sort of mentor to her, teaching them how they operated and turning them into a feared member of their gang, and in his waking life, a feared member of the remaining sea troll hierarchy.
Some time afterward, Murrit sold the Shufflers out into servitude or hiding and completely changed his personality in some capacity before the events of the story began.
On the night of the game Murrit spends most of his time organizing and pushing people to go along with his plans, as well as playing Anthropormuncipality with a friend. They are first seen speaking with Taz, trying to get her to listen to them about what's been set in motion. After Taz leaves the conversation and attempts to ignore what he said, Murrit messages Dismas and tells him to go outside. After a bit of an argument, Dismas begrudgingly asks Murrit to restate their past: their history as a small game peddler of pieces of the Frog Temple, to the deal with White Noise, and then their recruitment into the folds of the Dead Shufflers. Dismas emerges from his hive and comes face to face with a Boobdrone, a breast-shaped robot short for "Based Occulatory Operating Buddy Drone" . Murrit attempts to make an unimpressed Dismas give him a high-four, then a fistbump, then a pinkie swear, to which Dismas retaliates with a middle finger. Murrit responds with a slap in the face, then tells Dismas to look up to see a giant meteor hurtling towards Repiton. After a moment of shock from Dismas, Murrit tells him to look up again to see his lusus, a giant Skulltitan, preparing to strike at Dismas with an atomic blast. He equips his strife specibus, 2xdaggerkind, and prepares to battle his guardian as Murrit records on the Boobdrone. Murrit checks on a certain blue guy on her cameras before switching back to Skorpe, then checks out a colorful cube before being messaged about the game by Blue Dog and grandioseSaturation, whom which he has a dry and antagonistic conversation with.
Murrit is then seen standing in front of his "hentai dungeon" after navigating through many self-constructed booby traps, aka the reconstructed Frog Temple which he immediately desecrated with the aforementioned pornography. Murrit examines the runes carved into the walls of the temple, and then a giant closed flower pod on a pedestal. Being a bit too early for the big reveal, Murrit fetches their Doncamaticomp from their fetch modus, answering a message from Laivan about the current state of preparation for the game. Murrit promises to play a game of Anthropormuncipality with Laivan and the countdown on the flower pod's pedestal ends. The flower opens and lets out a bright beam of light that splits into twelve, installing The Game on the main cast's computers.
Murrit is knocked onto his ass by the blossom and immediately messaged by Taz, angry at the game window currently taking up her screen and leaving her computer to do anything else but use Skorpe, having come to the conclusion that Murrit had something to do with it. Murrit, annoyed at Taz's refusal to listen, simply tells her to figure it out and ends the conversation.
Not soon after, Murrit sends a mass memo to the main cast (with the exception of a troll he didn't deem important enough to receive the information) informing them of the nature of The Game. They receive a message from who they think to be Arcjec, though it's revealed to be Ellsee messaging her through Arcjec's Skorpe account, demanding to know what was going on and why she was excluded. Murrit promptly tells her to go fuck herself, dropping his quirk. Murrit sharply tells her to stay away away from the rest of the cast and the game if she actually cares about any of them before ceasing to message a confused and peeved Ellsee.
During [S] Arcjec: Enter, Murrit is shown playing aforementioned rounds of Anthropormuncipality with Laivan as promised.
Murrit was included in Ellsee's memo, but immediately withdrew from it.
After the memo, Laivan messages Murrit asking if she's ready to play and why she left. Murrit tells him to just trust them and asks if Laivan's ready back.
The scene switches to Boobdrone harassing Dismas, half submerged in a stream, with its auto chatter function. After a nasty altercation with his lusus, Dismas comes out alive but with a broken arm and generally heavily injured. He is once again approached by the Boobdrone, now being piloted by Murrit. Dismas tells Murrit that he's officially out of commission on the count of his broken arm, which his healing factor can't immediately fix like the rest of him. Dismas calls Murrit out for nearly getting him killed for his sick little videos, complaining about their (recently exacerbated) tendency to act oblivious to the consequences of their actions. Murrit asks if he wants an apology, catching Dismas off guard, but he states that he knows better than to expect more from the seadweller. In an effort to make Dismas feel better and get him to move, he brings Dismas' moirail into a Skorpe call, Jentha Briati. An upset and frantic Jentha asks Murrit about Dismas' wellbeing, as Murrit had told her that he had been killed to get her to join said call. Dismas comforts Jentha and she tries to get a better understanding of the situation, as Murrit had failed to explain anything clearly to her, as usual.
Murrit states she's ready for Dismas to act as his server player for the game. Dismas and Jentha tells Murrit to fuck off on the count of Dismas' condition and Murrit being entirely at fault for it. Murrit tells them she's hatched a plan to get Dismas back to his hive, as they have another Boobdrone push an ore-powered minecart onto the nearby rails.
Dismas and Jentha do not like Murrit's plan, and point out a number of its flaws. Dismas brings up Albion, who had appeared to not be acting like herself and was being abnormally cryptic (unbeknownst to him, she had been possessed by her Ancestor), but Murrit dismisses this and states that she appears to be acting normally. Jentha points out that Dismas' lusus is likely back in Dismas' hive, but Murrit tells her that it's under control. Finally Dismas reminds Murrit that his computer has been damaged and will likely be unable to run the game properly. Murrit tells Dismas that they will just have to work as a team to get the job done. Resentful, but seeing no other options, Dismas reluctantly agrees with the plan. Dismas is lifted onto the cart by the drone, sets the carrier's speed to max and proceeds to MELT TRACK with the Boobdrone in tow.
On the sandy beach in front of her hive, Murrit's entrance into the game is put in jeopardy. Her paragon repository is trapped in a cube of ice, unable to be melted in time to release her Denizen before the meteor hits. Suddenly, the ice block and the hourglass inside it shatter, unleashing the Denizen of Time inside. As Murrit rushes into the portal after him, two characters are shown, one with symbols in the color of the Time aspect on his palms.
During the Game
Murrit's meeting platform with their Denizen is not shown.
After his entry, Murrit is shown having an argument with Metatron regarding of the Game and White Noise on the Land of Wave and Record as his consorts watch. Murrit questions Metatron's ties to White Noise, asking if they weren't playing their part in setting up the game correctly, citing his view on killing off a part of the group to keep the rest of them safe. Metatron replies that if they'd actually kill her, their entire session would fail, to which Murrit replies that he wasn't made aware of. Metatron presses Murrit to describe what he saw, accompanied by a flashback: Ellsee preforming a ritual gone wrong, and a warning to fear what was coming, shown in [S] WHAT DID YOU DO TO THEM.
In the reopened memo, Murrit ignores multiple tags from Arcjec only to respond at the last minute with deflective bullshit, then banning themself from the memo to avoid further questioning. She's then shown bringing several personal items onto her planet via Boobdrones (and thus instantly breaking Arcjec's rule to only go back to Repiton if necessary) while having a conversation with Tee Hanos, one of his planet's consorts. Tee Hanos reveals Murrit's responsibility of the ruination of the Land of Wave and Record, giving a warning that if they didn't undo the damage, the platypus consorts would have his head.
Personality and Traits
Murrit is a troll with a complex and overly esoteric personality, being generally hard to decipher due to his penchant for misdirecting and confusing people on purpose. He presents an over-the-top front of being a skeevy and perverted troll with a love of all forms of debauchery. She deliberately speaks in a way that is annoying, slang-filled and inconsistent that often leaves the people he interacts with confused and frustrated. Not much is known about their actual personality, to the point that Murrit themself may not be sure of their true interests and demeanor. However, he has been shown to be serious and aggressive when provoked by someone who he thinks is a threat.
Murrit has little to no interest in the hierarchy of blood-castes and sea-dweller nobility. She finds both concepts completely irrelevant and outdated on a dying planet with a critically endangered sea-dweller population (to the frustration of a certain other magenta-blooded troll). True to this disdain for the pecking order, Murrit tries to (mis)treat everyone equally, rarely giving anyone any special treatment.
Among Murrit's interests are collecting ancient media (but especially televisions and video tapes), spying on his friends and collecting video footage of their mistakes so that he can make wacky videos, playing Anthropormuncipality with Laivan, robotics, antagonizing/helping Dismas, and pretending to be into hentai.
Murrit seems to be proficient in using a launchpad, though theirs is just loaded with a bunch of weird sound effects, including one of just a scream that he listens to for minutes at a time.
In the past, Murrit had behaved more in-line with the supposed standards of his blood caste, but has since abandoned that version of themself.
Murrit and Dismas have been in a kismesissitude for at least around two sweeps, and share the standard, mutually antagonistic relationship with one another. Murrit somehow gained and still owns Dismas's soul after an online poker game and the two worked as partners in a presumably illegal capacity in the past. It is inferred that the work wasn't negotiable and quite a lot of murder was involved.
Murrit appears to take a tough-love stance towards Dismas, regularly helping Dismas in a roundabout, incomprehensible manner through the use of his Boobdrone and in person. Dismas generally acts like he's completely tired of Murrit's bullshit, but goes along with it anyway and does seem to be able to talk to him without resorting to usual rival-istic behavior. Murrit has been shown to be physically aggressive with Dismas at least through the use of Boobdrone, but this may be a form of hate-flirting or a one time action on his part.
Murrit has also been confirmed to have a flushed crush on Dismas, however, due to the gravity of this fact and her fear of ruining their relationship due to Repiton's romantic social and cultural norms, Murrit keeps it a secret.
The twos dreamselves seem to have somewhat inversed relations, as rather than kismeses they are matesprits.
Like most people, Jentha finds Murrit to be obnoxious and annoying, but is further made more uncomfortable by their demeanor due to her anxiety issues and panic attacks. Jentha seems to be forceful and willing to put her foot down when interacting with Murrit on the behalf of her moirail, and outright insults and calls out the seadweller when he's acting especially terrible, a possible result of Dismas' influence. Despite this, she doesn't seem to hate Murrit by any means and just seems to think of her as a 'stupidhead'.
Laivan is one of Murrit's closest friends, with the two sharing a passion for Anthropormuncipality and a destiny in leading everyone to play the game they recovered from the Frog Temple. Laivan is one of the few trolls who isn't put off by Murrit's bizarre quirks and even jokingly calls them out on it. Murrit is often more honest around Laivan in turn and does not seem to harass him as harshly as some others, even though he isn't free from it either.
Taz is one of the few trolls to not be immediately put off by Murrit's scummy, perverted façade, to the point that she's actually somewhat fond of the sea-dweller. Despite this, Taz will not put up with any of Murrit's bullshit and is ready to drop her ass whenever he's not being helpful. Murrit on the other hand enjoys toying with Taz and her temper, but does try his best to actually be useful to her once in a while as well. Though they also have their tipping point and have left Taz on her ass just as badly as she has done to him.
This nicer relationship is however, undercut by his constant mention and nicknaming of Taz's breasts in their conversations -- something that Taz surprisingly doesn't seem to get onto him about as much as you'd think she would.
Due to Murrit's viewing of an occult ritual to contact her parents, Murrit greatly dislikes Ellsee, and distrusts her even more so, to the point that Murrit actively tries to keep Ellsee out of the game and threatens her. Ellsee is the only troll who Murrit has referred to by name, rather than a double entendre-rifled, reference-heavy, or insulting nickname.
Murrit does not like Calder at all. Murrit makes a huge point of annoying or ignoring Calder whenever possible, even basing their "love" and persistence of enjoying hentai to mock his male-centric ideals and hoity toity attitude. Conversely, Calder is frustrated with Murrit's refusal to behave like a proper sea dweller, and regularly tries to boss Murrit around, even though he at one point deeply respected him.
Arcjec generally dislikes interacting with Murrit, but appears to trust her regardless, believing him to not be a liar, at least in regards to The Game. Murrit is apparently fond of Arcjec, finding him to be fun and easy to provoke. Arcjec thinks Murrit is generally very bad at explaining things.
Murrit met White Noise at least two sweeps prior to the events of the Game. White Noise had approached the destined Time player in her dreams and gave her the choice of whether to pursue his destiny or not, clearly outlining the conditions of such a contact would require of Murrit and what it would give Murrit in return. Murrit having been an accomplished gambler and con-man at the time could quickly tell that White Noise was no swindler and was not one to be swindled either. Interested in the prospect of finding their ideal self, Murrit accepted and has worked in tandem with Laivan to fulfill his end of the bargain with White Noise ever since. As part of their deal, Murrit's Dream Self awoke on Derse, and they've dreamed on Derse ever since.
The Dead Shufflers
Murrit was once a member of the Dead Shufflers. After she awoke on Derse, his Dreamself was kidnapped by the group in hopes of using him as leverage against the Dersite royalty. However, when their leader, the Scathing Sharper took a liking to the young Murrit, he invited the seadweller into their fold. Murrit was a natural fit for the cut throat group, and began taking on their activities in his real life as well. However, Murrit eventually lost interest in that kind of life, and sold the group out. She hasn't looked back since.
- Murrit's Skorpe handle, unclaspedKahuna, is a blatant reference to his played up obsession with breasts. 'unclasped' means something 'revealed' or 'undressed'; 'kahuna' is a euphemism for breasts. The Hawaiian word also ties into their "tropical" design.
- His drones known as Boobdrones, are short for: Based Occulatory Operating Buddy Drone. They also all have functions that, when set on auto-pilot, do different things. The one that Murrit sent out to Dismas in Act 1 says random factoids about female troll chests.
- Murrit has never used the same nickname for a character twice.
- Murrit switches what pair of shutter shades they wear every wice per half a sweep.
- She has 52 varying pairs, which is more than likely to represent how many wices there are per half-sweep. Though it could also be a reference to how many cards there are in a full deck.
- Murrit is a huge fan of Repitonian pop-culture, from various eras of the planet's long history. Aspects of his character and hive contain numerous references to various Repitonian media (actually just Repitonian versions of a number of Earth media from the 80s and 90s).
- In her introduction, the televisions not on static play tapes of Pulp Fiction, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Simpsons, ALF and End of Evangelion.
- Murrit seems to be frequently associated with the virtual band Gorillaz. Her hive is reminiscent of and likely based on the futuristic island house on the cover of Plastic Beach, while her computer, called the Doncamaticomp, is a reference to the instrument and title of their single Doncamatic.
- He has been shown to be a fan of the Repitonian version of Dangan Ronpa. It is unknown whether this is a legitimate interest of theirs or not.
- Murrit seems to have a distaste for newer episodes of the Repitonian version of The Simpsons, which has been running for hundreds if not thousands of sweeps on Repiton .
- Murrit is a Violetblood, a Derse dreamer, and a Hero of Time, meaning on Alternia his sign would be Aquaries, Sign of the Heroic..
- Murrit appears in Hiveswap Friendship Simulator: Volume Seventeen in the one of the backgrounds of Nihkee Moolah's route.
- Murrit considers Dismas to be "one of the only great things his life has ever given him"
- Murrit runs a Filler account under the username smurt.
- Almost half of Repiton's population follows them.
