Aspects
High Concept: We are the hivemind Robocop/cybernetic technician par excellence
Trouble: More Clever than wise: We are clever but we don't always see the down side to a clever plan
Aspects:
  • Biomimicry inspires my designs
  • Hardened Distributed Mind Protocol: Wrapping the DMP in hard crypto using a big PSK means the machines are not extensions of my body. They embody my consciousness.
  • We Plurals have to stick together: We side with other plural/hive/AIs.
  • Hive to Hive Communication: We can meld minds with other hives to communicate.
  • CAF: Because of the integration, we can form and act like a being or structure of our imagining
  • Novice of Clank Fu: Modeled after the swarming attacks of birds and insects and more than a touch of old Kung fu movies, with the addition of tools, small arms, and explosives, the horde can sense, defend, and attack. The electronic senses and emitters can also be added to this.

Appearance

I'm not exceptional physically--average height, slightly slimmer build. I have pale green eyes behind my glasses and sandy blond hair. I usually give people the impression that I'm distracted or detached and, well, honestly, I am. My eyes move around a lot and I'm starting to make eye contact with people but it's a cold gaze.

Backstory

My name has long been a sore point but my parents had a horrible sense of humour and cursed me with a horrible name. "Jack Daniels" has been a thorn in my side my whole life and has been the cause of a lot of ridicule. This has probably been part of why I've been a loner and not let people get too close. As I kid, I didn't get why everyone laughed but now I just go by "JaDe" or lie about my name and say it's "Jay" to save me the trouble.

Parents were popular and heavy drinkers so I spent my formative years reading and playing with building toys. Relationships with people haven't been successful and, while I'm not unattractive, my lack of personal skills has limited my romantic entanglements and kept friends at arms length. People are messy, uncontrollable, and unpredictable and I much prefer to keep to myself most of the time and definitely prefer technology because I can make it what I want, control it, and know what will happen.

Growing up in the big city was brutal. I was surrounded by so many people all the time and I never felt comfortable. My parents were fairly well-off, if absent, so I had a lot of time with technology. After college, I bounced around a bit, taking odd jobs that no human would do and making new 'friends' to do what was needed. I've worked in mines, offshore, and helped with a few government projects that "never existed" (lost a few very special friends in those and don't like doing them). When the opportunity came up to move to the mine in Sudbury, it seemed like a perfect fit for us. Far from the crowds, steady work, lots of people who understand science first. For the first time in my life, I'm content.

All of my robots are programmed to recognize me and obey. It's tied to an implant I've had for many years at it's simplest, but that's just the final failsafe. Many can recognize me in more general terms. I've designed too many dangerous and deadly machines, not to mention too many that I cherish, to ever trust anyone to have authority over them. It's always and exclusively me, no matter what I say to them.

Birth Date: July 4, 1999 Born in New York City, NY

Updates

2017-07-28 Updated aspects with Smart Dust aspects (not the intrinsic thing that doesn't exist except as a concept).

Since the Vatican incident, the clanks have been decimated. Jake is taking it very personally and is reeling at the loss of his peaceful hive and is developing anger. There are new clanks coming and they won't be defenseless.... never again to feel that loss...

Jake is getting tired of hiding. It hasn't worked out well and they are feeling a loss of presence in the world. They are drifting back to using "Jade" because, well, why not? but a new identity is growing and they don't have a name yet.
