Cloud – Europa Institute of Technology
“No, ‘we’ are not royalty. We’re simply not the single individual you perceive.”
The entity known only as Cloud is the result of an artificial intelligence experiment gone somewhat awry. It’s an assortment of processes that were engineered into a single individual to create an AI ‘collective’. The theory was that humans are much the same type of entity with differing thoughts and desires that often stand at-odds with one another, yet are still required to function together in a single individual. The result is Cloud, a cybernetic collective being that now wanders the galaxy as a bounty hunter and soldier-for-hire.
