"Patience is a Chronicom's greatest tool."
Enoch[src]

The Chronicoms are an extremely advanced and ancient kind of synthetic, semi-robotic beings that operate in the galaxy as observers.

History

Star Gazing

"I was sent here 30,000 years ago to observe and record the evolution of your species. What you would call an anthropologist. My Earth name is Enoch, I'm a sentient Chronicom from a planet which revolves around a star in the constellation you know as Cygnus."
Enoch[src]

The Chronicoms originated from a planet located in a star system in the Cygnus constellation. After the development of interstellar transportation, they started exploring the galaxy, obtaining knowledge about other sentient races. A Chronicom scientists were sent to primitive planet Earth, where the Humans were developing, and monitored their evolution for millennia, assuming the identities of Enoch and Noah.[1]

Extinction-Level Event

"Our protocol allows for one exception; the prevention of an extinction-level event."
Enoch to Leo Fitz[src]

The Chronicoms had a strict code of not interfering with the natural course of life on the planet they were observing, and would never interfere unless there was an extinction level event.[1]

Characteristic Traits

"How are you not eaten by those things?"
"They have no interest in me, as I have no tender insides for them to extract."
"Thought Fitz was done building robots."
"I am not a robot."
Melinda May and Enoch[src]

Chronicoms do not have gender or inner organs, and are mostly made of plastic alloy. Although they are sentient beings, the Chronicoms are powered by batteries and possess other cybernetic components.

Trivia

  • The Chronicoms are similar to the Watchers in the comics, sharing the habit of overseeing and studying less advanced races without interfering in the natural course of their history. They also recall the Recorders as artificial beings studying the progress of sentient species across the universe.
  • Chronicoms stationed on Earth seem to name themselves after biblical characters.
