"We observe and guide events, occasionally with violence. We do not engage in conflict."
Atarah[src]

The Chronicoms are an extremely advanced and ancient kind of synthetic, semi-robotic beings that operate in the galaxy as observers. There are different types of Chronicoms, designed for different jobs or purposes.

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 Chronyca-2. After the development of interstellar transportation, they started exploring the galaxy, obtaining knowledge about other sentient races. 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]

Losing their Home

The Chronicoms' homeworld, Chronyca-2, was invaded by Izel when she was searching for the Di'Allas and proceeded to infect the planet. They, under Atarah's leadership, tried to stop the Shrike, but failed and the planet was destroyed. The Confederacy arrived to pillage the remains of the planet, but the Chronicoms fought back and defeated them. Atarah and the surviving Chronicom Hunters then seized their Confederate Warships and decided to find S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist Leo Fitz to make them a time machine to save Chronyca-2.[2]

Characteristic Traits

Physiology

"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 and have a human-like design. Although they are sentient beings, the Chronicoms are powered by a Electrochron Displacement Mechanism, which is analog to a human heart, and possess other cybernetic components. They do not naturally die unless the Electrochron Displacement Mechanism is removed. They are also are identified as humans by scanners.

Society

There are different types of Chronicoms, including: Anthropologists, focused on learning about life or sentient species on a given location; Hunters, which are skilled in battle, weaponry and hunting, and are tasked with enforcing the natural order of the universe; and Predictors, which predict how changes in the timeline will affect history. Any type of Chronicom can be reassigned/reprogrammed by their superiors at any moment's notice to fulfill another role.

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 Rigellian Recorders as artificial beings studying the progress of sentient species across the universe.
  • Chronicoms are named after biblical figures; the only exception is Sibyl, who is named after the oracles of Greco-Roman myth.
