IXILON

In a world where resources are scarce, the advanced AI system and main executioner of the advanced city ofHighland, IXILON, passes his time governing the city as the Ten Arbiters decreed.

As a system with the presence of the entire city, he constantly delivers justice.
Everything was going fine until he was out down for "data purging" and experienced a dream, something only humans could have! In the dream, he saw a girl that caught his interest, yet had no recollection of her in his memory files nor criminal data.

Now, while delivering his justice to all the dregs of society, he hunts for this mystery girl. And as it turns out—she and her group has some business with him as well.

As fate as well as some cyber-stalking brings them together, a dark secret linking to the undercity threatens to turn Highland into a battlefield of flesh and metal. Who will light the way for what remains of humanity, man or machine?

I never see stories with an actual AI as the main character, so I decided to tackle it for myself. I really enjoyed Vivy and also thought the concept of the Marvel character, Ultron, could make a unique character. An all-powerful, always watching, constantly evolving mind of tech can easily be led astray, but I wanted to show what happens when it has a reason to do things for itself, not for humanity or those who made it. I hope it interests you because as a fantasy writer, I am pretty outside my element. Still, I wanted to try something new so here I am.
