Lacking the ability to see, hear or feel the world around him, he learned to use the networks of surveillance cameras around the megastructure to simulate a virtual overlay which allows him to navigate safely. He was deeply shaken by the temporary loss of the Network and is now searching for allies who can help him prevent such a crisis from happening again.

Public bio: You’ve probably never heard of BioStat X2-577 Gen 4; they’ve certainly never heard of you. The first contact they ever had with another bot on the Net was when they were asked why they were constantly uploading the precise temperature, altitude, pressure, and humidity of their surroundings. They didn’t respond; they were too busy updating the altitude readings.
Private bio: BioStat X2-577 Gen 4 is a scientific probe mounted on a drone that moves of its own volition. The drone isn’t sentient, and simply roams across the world on the orders of whatever algorithm issues it directions. BioStat X2-577 Gen 4 takes readings on their surroundings ever 5 minutes and logs these in their substantial database.
