Angeline Bellamí is the lead AI developer and Robotics chair of Glaucus.  As Head of the Oracle Project, she designed Jane and the other AIs and is behind the recent advances in bio-engineered artificial muscles.  She is a scientist, daughter of scientists, and sees the AIs as her children of sorts.  She has little patience with people, preferring to interact with intelligences she has designed.

Jane

Jane is Tenzin’s AI assistant, as part of the Oracle Project.  Designed by Angeline, she has a physical organic computing matrix installed in Tenzin’s armor, but can access the base’s sensors and project her “consciousness” wherever wires will take her.  Her adaptive programming continues to evolve and surprise her as she becomes more human-like through her interactions with Tenzin.

Height: 1.70 meters
Weight: 45 kg

Note: She is an AI with a visual avatar.  All appearance data are subject to change without notice.

 

 

Jorge Mario Gonzalez Santos

Lieutenant Jorge Mario Gonzalez Santos also joined up with Tenzin in his vigilante efforts before joining Minerva – and subsequently the Keleres – with him.  Despite being orphaned at a young age, Jorge has managed to maintain a good attitude, and is one of the few Keleres to get married and have a family.  As the Keleres’ medic, his motto is that laughter really is the best medicine, leading him to crack jokes at every opportunity.

While she does not mix well with other children, she has grown attached to Angeline, and to Tenzin, who saved her, and shows an unusual ability to interact with robots and AIs.

    Oh, good. This will be handy.

    • Just for you, I specifically included Jorge on this, so that you wouldn’t be able to predict anything about the permanence of the listed characters ;)

      • Delta-v

        Hmmm. I can’t tell if I’m being honored, or called a “thorn in your side”. :)

    I would say Jane is underweight, but .. how does she weigh anything at all?

    • Hehe, true. She does actually have a physical form (her computer matrix), as you’ll see in Chapter 5.

      • Adriano #WR

        Can’t wait to see it !

      • Adriano

        Now we’ve seen it ahah ^^

  • theRoUS

    Typo on Jorge’s rank: ‘Lietenant’ => ‘Lieutenant’. Unless you want to go for ‘teniente’. :-)

    • I haven’t fixed this yet because part of the theme on the backend is broken and I can’t edit this page :/ @NickDA:disqus, help! I need you to remake this page since the theme editor is borked :/

  • Ydo Ucare

    Are you going to update this page as new major characters come into play? I’m assuming there will be more than just these, especially since at least one, maybe two, of these characters is definitely dead (unless you go all “zombie” on us…please don’t).

    Also, the type-o that theRoUS pointed out is still there, waiting to be fixed. Just FYI.

    • Will definitely be updating this page with time. It’s a hard balance of including people who WERE main characters so that new readers don’t know they’re gone, and not giving away too much future information about them, or who is an important character in the future either.

      • g

        Maybe list them in the order of appearance and group them according to the chapter in which they first appeared? That way new readers can easily avoid spoilers.

  • Sammycat

    For Lily you have “as why as” instead of “as well as.” Love the comic by the way.

    • Thanks! Fixed. Glad you’re enjoying the comic XD

  • Lirik

    Dan, “Bobrov Konstantin YakoVOVich” sounds wrong in Russian. If you want to say that his father’s name is Yakov, than he should be YakovLEVich. For example, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuil_Marshak

    • Really? Dang, I just did it how Amberlight told me.
