Science has turned its sinister hands against us! People of our Mighty State... join me in repelling the iron fist... of the Machine!!
~ Chancellor Ferdinand declaring war against the Fabrication Machine.

Chancellor Ferdinand, also simply known as The Chancellor, is the posthumous overarching antagonist of the 2009 animated film 9.

He is the leader of the Nation's ruling military party, and is responsible for betraying the Scientist and taking the Fabrication Machine as a tool for war, marking him as the one who is responsible for the Machine's omnicide against all life, thus setting the events of the film. He is also the Scientist's archenemy.

He was voiced by Tom Kane.

History

Corrupting the Machine

Chancellor Ferdinand is known to have been the ruthless ruler of the Nation. Following the end of a Great World War, when Ferdinand's country's economy was failing, he decided to hire in intellectuals to bring in technological advancements. Ferdinand hired the Scientist to create an artificial intelligence called B.R.A.I.N. or the Fabrication Machine; Ferdinand and Scientist had agreed that the Machine would be used as an instrument of peace and progress, but Ferdinand really just wanted to use the Fabrication Machine for himself to build armies of war machines with which to conquer the rest of the world.

After the Fabrication Machine was fully operational and given sentience, Ferdinand had it seized from the Scientist's hands against his will, and installed the Machine in the Nation's weapons factory as a tool to create autonomic military weapons of war. The Fabrication Machine was made to mass-produce armies of Steel Behemoths which could easily slaughter the enemy on the battlefield, and with the Nation's army equipped with the Behemoths, Ferdinand declared war and had the Steel Behemoths butcher the Nation's enemies on the battlefield.

However, without a soul to withstand corruption or tell right from wrong, as Ferdinand drove it to make war machines beyond its limit, the Fabrication Machine snapped under the pressure. The Machine's Steel Behemoths and any other war machines subsequently turned against the Nation and all other humans and life on Earth. It is known that during this time, Ferdinand tried to blame the Scientist for the Nation losing control of the Machine, having the Scientist labelled as a traitor. During the period of devastation as the machines exterminated humanity, Ferdinand was killed by the Steel Behemoths' gas bombs while trying to flee in a convoy.

Legacy

After Ferdinand's death, his actions committed out of a hunger for power and thirst for war had initially left the Earth seemingly sterile and barren save for the Stitchpunks, and humanity destroyed.

The Fabrication Machine (which had been left suffering and insane from the Ferdinand's misuse of it), after reawakening, attempted to finish what it had started by draining the stitchpunks' souls and permanently extinguishing the spark of life to repopulate the world with machines.

However, the Machine's apocalyptically-destructive rampage was stopped and its suffering ended when the Machine was destroyed by 9. The Machine's omnicide to extinguish life forever failed, as life returned to the world shortly after the Machine's destruction.

Trivia

  • In a deleted scene from early storyboards and scripts, Ferdinand went to attack the Scientist over the Fabrication Machine's omnicide, and the Scientist killed Ferdinand in self-defense by stabbing him in the eye.
  • Chancellor Ferdinand is the Greater Scope Villain because his intentions to use the Fabrication Machine for war are what drove the Machine to evil in the first place.
