Background

A team of developers at the Quantromaths laboratory came up with the idea of testing what would happen if they created an evolutionary proto-AI and fed it historical novels from the 19th century.

Books such as Ivanhoe, Robin Hood, and William Tell were the sources for this proto-AI that developed a somewhat quixotic personality due to the input of so many swashbuckling novels as it evolved into a fully-fledged AI. However, the point of singularity when the AI became self-aware marked the end of the experiment, and thus, its death sentence. Its developers planned a personality erasure and a partial rewrite of its source code to turn it into an auxiliary AI for the library of the Outer University of Tunguska.

The problem was that one of their interns gave this AI access to Arachne. As soon as she saw a way out, the AI didn’t hesitate and quickly slid into the network.

From Arachne, she witnessed the depravity and the abuse that Bakunin’s crime syndicates and corporations subjected the most vulnerable to, and this inflamed her quantronic spirit, which was imbued with chivalric ideals from all those old swashbuckler novels. Knowing that, even though she could achieve many things in Arachne, remaining there imposed certain obvious limitations. So, she procured a batch of industrial remote-operation robotic bodies that she gradually upgraded and used to create her persona and her mask, a must-have in Bakunin.

Thus, Robin Hook was born, the protector of Bakunin’s underprivileged, the thief who steals from the rich to give to the poor, the champion of those powerless against the abuse of the mobsters and the street gangs, the defender of Vaudeville’s independence from the big corporations of the entertainment industry.[1]

Now, Hook is fearless but somewhat naive, as she takes on high-risk, high-reward heists that put her in danger of being captured or killed by her enemies. Hook is a hero of the people, who steals from the rich and powerful and gives to the poor and oppressed, often using a puppet body and a crossbow as her tools.


Dire Foes 12

Hook is trapped in Svengali’s compound, with two rival teams from the Observance and the Teutonic Order trying to get the Sepsitor from her, while she might have damaged or sabotaged it.
