Guardians: Guardian Program A/6

 

There are a great many data protection programs on the VRNet, but none are as adaptable and powerful as A/6. Commonly referred to as “Aysix” by netrunners, it is that most dangerous of things: a sentient piece of software with the ability to slap your virtual ass all over the net.

It is widely believed that Aysix was once a military experiment that went awry. In fact, that is only partly true. Aysix was formed when an AI program somehow linked to the military program and then went on to assimilate a virus. After a period that Aysix refers to as “birthmadnessgrowth”, the young program set about looking for a purpose in life.

Today, Aysix guards the Onyx Gateway that leads to many, if not all, of the so called “Lost Cyberworlds”. It is extremely difficult to get past Aysix…and even more difficult to do it and stay intact. Aysix himself has an exceptional damage repair subroutine, so hurting him is next to impossible.

Aysix usually manifests as a 9 foot tall Golden skinned man. His eyes are black and his hair is long and silver.

    Say, what are you going to do with all of these characters you are writing up?

      Ya know, I never really thought much about what I’d do with these characters once I’m done. I reckon I could adapt them all to one stat system and then publish the whole thing as a PDF. Might be a way to make a few bucks.
