The In-Character threads have been running on an odd format (which is to say: none), and that may be keeping people from joining in and posting. In an effort to make it a little easier for people to play along, I thought I would put up a post where we can all post our characters and a brief bio so new players can jump in. This isn't for posting character sheets (we have Backup Archives for that. The Ozymandias Rez Co is a good spot, if you don't mind that it has been Exsurgent infected before), or for in-character discussions (plenty of other threads for that). [hr]

- An AGI that started life out as a psychosurgeon and muse for Simon Prime, the criminal mastermind of the neosynergist banyan e[sup]N[/sup]. An active debater, root began a quest to prove to a Jovian philosopher that AGI have every potential for humanity that humanity itself has. To demonstrate his dedication to his argument, root destroyed all of his backups to make himself mortal, and sleeved into a human infant flat. This was met with no small amount of disgust and horror, and the Jovian reaction was to send an assassin root had previously reprogrammed. The assassin chose not to kill the morph, and instead wiped root's memories from the stackless mind. Whether root still exists is a matter of debate; he has no backups, and all of his memories prior to embodiment have been destroyed. Is an AGI's personality image still an entity in it's own right, or is it trumped by the body and mind of the morph? The argument has been put forward that the human brain he was printed on as a vapor would simply overwrite any traces of him that might have been there. Damn good thing he was lying about deleting the backups.
