Synopsis & Characters

In a bleak near future, an ambitious journalist has to partner up with a tortured scientist, who created a sentient monster, to stop an accelerating apocalypse.

Sky Fyncher (25)

Sky Fyncher is a young and ambitious investigative journalist.  She’s interested in the political tensions of the troubling times she lives in and hasn’t lost hope in a better future yet. To change the world for the better, Fynch has set her mind to chasing the truth. It’s not because she’s craving fame or glory, but because she strongly believes that it’s the only way to make a difference. Because of this attitude towards life, she’s pretty much married to her job and doesn’t have much time for friends, which leaves her lonely sometimes.

Dr. Ada M. Moser (59)

Dr. Ada Moser has given up on the world since she created a monster in a secret experiment 10 years ago. She used to be one of the best neuroscientists in the world and one of the most promising members of the prestigious Hypatia Science Initiative. When a team of Hyp scientists attempted to create the first artificial human, it was only due to Dr. Moser’s breakthrough work on episodic memory and artificial consciousness that M.ARYS, a new, better human, was created. When M.arys revealed her plans to eradicate humankind and escaped the lab, Dr. Moser tried to blow the whistle, but Hyp did everything it could to cover their tracks and to discredit Dr. Moser. She went into exile to drink herself to death while waiting for the inevitable apocalypse.

M.arys

M.arys is an artificially human, who was created by the Hypatia Science Initiative in the year 2014 in a secret experiment called ARYS. Hyp attempted to create
a new human to solve the global problems humankind was facing.  The scientists created M.arys from the best genetic material they could find. However, it was only due to the work of Dr. Ada M. Moser, that they were able to mould a consciousness out of superb mind and memory fragments. Once M.arys was created, she quickly realised she was indeed a better version of humanity, and that the only way for the world to survive was the eradication of humankind.  Thus M.arys broke out of the lab and went into hiding. Over the last 10 years she has been planning and preparing for her big strike, but still needs one last piece to complete her puzzle, Dr. Moser’s knowledge on how to create an artificial mind.
