アンドロイド Androids

 アンドロイド 人型
SourceAncestry Guide pg. 69

別の世界からの技術ある放浪者であるアンドロイドは合成された肉体と生きた魂を持つ。二つの本質によって彼らはプレッシャーがあっても思考が素早く、落ち着いている。 だが、静けさと孤独を心地よく感じるのである。

アンドロイドは「星の雨」の間にゴラリオンに最初に到着した。それは、遥か遠き惑星アンドロッファの星間飛行体が衝突し、ヌーメリア中にデブリが散らばったときであった。アンドロイドの中には、この衝突を生き残って今日のゴラリオンをまだ歩き回っている者もいるが、ほとんどは、宇宙船の残骸の合間でよく活動している、鋳造ポッドという技術ポッドによって作られている。こういった機械の子宮から生を受けたアンドロイドは成人の肉体と新生児の魂を持ち、有機的でありながら合成物でもある;彼らは創造主の言語のみを知って生まれ、生存に必要な言動的な技能のみを持つ。彼らは自分の周囲や原点、目的を理解していない。ほとんどのものはヌーメリアを放浪している間に鋭い観察を通じて所作を学ぶ。

アンドロイドは論理的かつ内向的、合理的かつ思索を好む傾向がある。好奇心が旺盛で、自分自身や周りの世界を理解しようとするため、知的な探求に大きな価値を置いている。自分や他人の感情を解釈し、表現することが苦手なため、よそよそしく、思いやりに欠ける印象を与える。アンドロイドは感情的な絆を築くことができるが、アンドロイドでない者との交流には困難を感じるだろう。

ファンタジー世界における異端の存在である被造物で、観察と論理の力だけで現実と社会のニュアンスを学ぶことを強いられるキャラクターをプレイしたいのなら、アンドロイドをプレイするべきである。

君は、もしかしたら…

  • 他人が君を悪用したり、危害を加えるかもしれないと思って素性を秘密にしておく。
  • 単純な作業であっても、複数の事前準備をして計画を先に立てる。
  • 自分の行動、発明、思考を共有する前にその影響を計算する。

他人は、もしかしたら…

  • 君が技術の操作方法を知っており、人造やロボットと意思疎通する能力があると思っている。
  • 君が不死身だと思っていて、その永遠の若さと活力を羨む。
  • 君には感情がなく、他人と感情的な絆を築くことが出来ないと思っている。

外見 Physical Description

Androids were created in humanity’s image; thus, foundries produce androids that represent all humankind. Androids display great diversity in coloration and ethnicity, height and body shape, and gender identity. Androids breathe, eat, and sleep like a human, although they’re incapable of biological procreation. Their bodies contain microscopic nanites, transported by fluid too watery to be blood, that manage their organic processes. These nanites are controlled through biological circuitry that resembles tattoos and is typically located along an android’s hands, forearms, face, or neck. Many androids can harness their nanites to increase their bodies’ efficiency, causing the circuitry to glow.

Androids don’t grow old. Instead, their organic appearance becomes less convincing over time, causing them to look more artificial. After a century, most androids feel their time coming to an end and willingly release their souls to the Boneyard to face Pharasma’s judgment. Their bodies then shut down, entering a lifeless hibernation as their nanites begin restoration protocol and reset their synthetic bodies to their original manufactured state. After a few weeks, a new soul enters the android’s form, triggering reinitialization. This process, called Renewal, is an event to be celebrated, akin to bearing a child. Those that die by violence can’t Renew, so androids go to great lengths to protect themselves and their brethren from harm.

Society

Androids have a history of being exploited, enslaved, and destroyed by their Numerian neighbors, so they hide in order to survive. Most choose to keep their ancestry secret by integrating into human society or by adapting to a nomadic lifestyle. Some androids eschew humanity to live among their kind. Such groups often remain small by necessity; while a pair of androids can avoid danger through careful secrecy, large groups attract too much attention.

Android communities are efficient and highly organized. Each citizen understands their role and takes pride in filling it effectively. Debates and lectures frequently occur, as androids seek to understand themselves and their world through education and inquiry. These insular and secretive enclaves relocate when discovered.

Alignment and Religion

Most androids are neutral. They care for their own safety and that of their companions and their kind. Androids interested in religion usually worship Casandalee or Brigh, goddesses that unite invention and life. Other popular deities include DesnaIrori, and Gozreh.

Adventurers

Most androids become adventurers to protect their kin from harm or to research the history of their people, typically by exploring technological ruins. Androids survive through deception, stealth, and subterfuge, which leads many down the path of the rogue. Others embrace their thirst for knowledge and understanding by becoming alchemistsmonks, or wizards. Typical android backgrounds include hermitnomadscholar, and tinker.

Names

Androids adopt the naming conventions of their surrounding societies, while those raised among their own kind instead select a single name that utilizes Androffan phonology. Occasionally, such androids add a numerical designation to their names, denoting how many generations their body has hosted life as a kind of homage to their bloodline.

Sample Names

Anati, Daniv, Era-4, Feralia, Gelegor, Ilgos-5, Koresh, Oris, Prime, Urdun, Verity-3, Ymry

Other Information

Android Settlements

Androids are primarily found in Numeria, where they hide among humans or travel as nomads. A large number live openly in Starfall under the protection of the Black Sovereign. The slopes of Silver Mount house multiple android enclaves and archaeological teams, including Enseffa, the center of Androffan society. In the town of Hajoth Hakados, the locals help androids secretly flee Numeria for lands where they face less hatred. Hidden in a series of tunnels and caverns beneath the Numerian Plains, the androids of Szamrak’s Haven believe androids are a superior life-form. They hunt for foundries with the intent of liberating all androids, conquering Numeria to found an android-only nation, and eventually returning their people to their home amongst the stars.

Casandalee and Androids

Once an artificial intelligence cloned from the mind of an alien android, Casandalee recently ascended as the goddess of artificial life, free thinking, and intellectual apotheosis. Despite the small size and relative obscurity of her religion, the androids of Numeria have embraced Casandalee as their own. They seek to better bridge the gap between artificial and organic lifeforms, thereby improving the lives of androids.

Thoughts on Androids

Other people view androids through a lens of magic and superstition. Most consider androids eccentric spellcasters, often confusing them with tattooed Thassilonian wizards. Others see an android’s glowing circuitry and assume they’re planar scions. In the River Kingdoms, androids are often thought to be fey that imperfectly took on human form and thus can’t stand the touch of cold iron. Peoples in Ustalav frequently confuse androids for spirits, believing they can be held back by salt circles or banished through pious prayers.
