Soldier of Love and Bitching on the Internet
True & Honest Fan
Did the book ever explain WHY Afton/Purple Guy wanted to abduct and murder children so badly that he invented the most advanced (possibly) robots to date for that sole purpose?
It seems to be a very convoluted plan if he was just an everyday child murder rapist.
Nah, no explicit reason is ever given. Apparently he's extremely intelligent (he was able to design and build such sophisticated robots, after all) so maybe he just wanted to put his intellect to use by creating robots to help him do his dirty work and get away with it. After all, in the games, the children are still officially known as "missing" rather than "murdered" because their bodies were never found.
