Kind. Diligent. Tougher than she looks. Flynne scrapes by, working to keep her mom’s prescriptions coming. Not much of a future, but that’s everyone in Clanton. She deserves a better world than this. She’ll have to fight for it.
Flynne’s mischievous older brother, a Marine with haptic implants. Also an extremely efficient machine for dispensing violence. Burton rankles his sister, but underneath their banter rests a bedrock of love and loyalty. Burton conceals his trauma from his family, but would do anything to protect them.
Conner grew up with Fishers, enlisting with his best bud Burton and returning a triple amputee. He seeks escape from chronic pain by drowning his bitterness in a bottle. Still a wry and lethal wingman, and given the proper chance, ready to become the hero he is fated to be.
Wilf’s a professional bullshitter, helping rich people—namely, Lev Zubov--get out of the problems they get themselves into. Prefers to skate the surface, avoiding the probing neediness of feelings, if he can. Part of him wants to take the plunge…but maybe he’s worried about just how deep he’ll fall.
Mysterious. Idealistic. She wants to save the world. Or a world. Aelita is the person who hired Burton to play a strangely realistic game. When Flynne takes over, she’s the only witness to Aelita’s fate.
An advanced remotely controlled robot, designed to look as humanlike as possible. They’re used as physical avatars so someone can be present in a location (or a time) when their real body is elsewhere.
The physical embodiment of virtual assistants. Their tessellated wireframes differentiate them from their more humanlike cousins, Peripherals, and mainly operate for commercial and domestic use. Some have more specialized skills and are decorated to model their function--art as much as appliance.
Conner’s highly customized one-man vehicle. Conner can be found patrolling the roads in it, mostly late at night when ordinary folks are sleeping.
Cybernetic enhancements courtesy of the US Military. Connecting fellow soldiers together in a sort of “hivemind”--like Bluetooth connecting phones--improving the unit’s instant communication and therefore, collective effectiveness. They aren’t exactly comfortable, though.
