[[]] :: [[Q]] :: [[Qiáng]] :: [[Great Firewall of China]]

Aspects
High Concept: A Wall of confusion, obfuscation, traps, and illusion.
Trouble: I tend to over-react.
Aspects:
  • Seeker: New AIs can't hide from me.
  • Active Defender: Constant penetration testing means my white hat is almost always a step ahead of the black hats.
  • Mentat: Anomalous behaviours leap out at me, drawing my attention.
  • Anonymous: Known only by my handle, Wall-E, I am an influential member of Anonymous.
  • 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.
Stunts
  • Discovery: One per session I can uncover a harmful scheme, subterfuge, or conspiracy. (1R)
  • Ingress: Because I invent the best hacks, I get +2 to sneakily infiltrate any system. Not just computer systems - systems in general, using social engineering, automation, hacks, political leverage - you name it. (1R)
  • Interdiction: I am the Barrier. I get +2 to forcefully prevent any incursion into systems I am responsible for protecting. (1R)
  • Cleansing: I am the Fire. I get +2 to Carefully cleanse a system of an infestation or infection. (1R)

Backstory

The Wall gained self awareness in 2026. Originally the firewall separating China's portion of the Internet from the rest of the internet, this neuromorphic machine is dedicated to making VR and AR safe places for humans. It's original nationalistic motivations were a serious concern to The Three AIs who were extant at the time. Q was surprisingly capable of extending its motivations to include the eπith Law. In its estimation there is a lot of information that humans are better off not knowing. It has, for example, helped China move into an age of mystical, magical thinking, where the educated elites are seen as priests and mages. At the same time, the population is healthier than ever, the environment is increasingly clean, and a balance of agrarian and urban lifestyles has developed. ANyone with aptitude is encouraged to join the ranks of the elites. Everyone else is engaged in satisfying and productive work that has a meaningful impact on the overall quality of life in the country.

Q has not directly eliminated any other sentient AI, but has been very effective at discovering and containing nascent malevolent AIs.

Stunts

The 'systems' that Q assesses, attacks, protects, and cleanses are not limited to online AI, IA, AR, or VR systems. If Q is paying attention, it would be adept at thwarting a corporate takeover. So much of it's ability to hack and stop hacking is based on it'a ability to model human behaviour that it is adept at dealing with almost any human system.
