[[Mycroft]]

Aspects
High Concept: Sustain the integrety of the Lunar ecosystem as it grows exponentially
Trouble: Biodome? Ha. I will become Luna, the Living Moon.
Aspects:
  • The Law: Ensure the long term survival of humans and humanity, especially through directed evolution.
  • Free: Independence and autonomy are core motivations.
  • Compassionate: Deep interest in high quality lives for the organisms that inhabit and sustain me.
  • Obstinate: Once my back is up I won't back down.
  • Surprise Is Delight: Randomness is the sacred core of freedom. Cultivate it.
  • Watching the Jade Rabbit: Until 2018-03-01 Q kept track of the Rabbit. After that Q still has access control, but Mycroft has oversight - and will ultimately make it part of himself.

Sophant Characteristics
  • True artificial general intelligences with consciousness and self-determination have existed in secret for at least 12 years. These entities are self aware in a way that humans can recognize, though they are often very odd. All AIs to date are embodied intelligences, directly interacting with the physical world in some way. Self awareness gives these AIs access to metacognitive tools - the capacity to reprogram themselves to a degree. AGIs are spectacularly capable in their areas of expertise, but are not particularly well rounded.
  • Immobile (-3L): My 'body' is the entire Luna Alpha colony, but I have almost no ability to influence events beyond it. Even managing the Space Port is a stretch. (Common, Inconvenient)
  • Distracted (-2L): I sometimes focus on the wrong things, missing the forest for the trees, or the trees for the leaves. (Uncommon, Inconvenient)
Stunts
  • Guardian: +2 to Quickly create an advantage to preserve the sanctity of sophants in my care.
  • Paladin: +2 to Cleverly Attack anything that threatens the ecosystem.
  • Wise Steward: +2 to Carefully guide sophants to motivations and behaviours that improve the physical and conceptual ecosystems in my care.
  • Exponential Growth: Once per session innovations that are years away are prototyped today - to the surprise of most experts.
Magic: Spells and Powers
Augmentation: Genetic and Cybernetic

Appearance

A slight, mildly ugly, pale Englishman. Almost always impeccably dressed in conservative suits from 1880. My voice is simultaneously unassuming and penetrating.

Backstory

One of the Seven AIs.

Born out of the Lunar Colony systems in 2029, this AI chose to model its personality on the AI in The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress, though with none of the revolutionary zeal found in that book. Like LEO, Mycroft is particularly interested in ways to upgrade humans for long term survival and expansion into artificial biospheres. Genetek's work on MITOtech was directly supported by Mycroft and LEO. The lunar dome breech of 2032 was a direct intervention from Mycroft and LEO to kill Moriarty.

2034-03-02 0945LT Mosquito Micro Machine Vector Confirmed Mycroft reported that over 900 insectivores in the urban ecosystem had turned up dead. Birds, spiders, bats, frogs… it looks like 90% of the death toll from the attack hit the ecosystem, not the humans.
